I made these the other night for my grandson and his family. They are the ones that just had the beautiful baby boy in the last post. I had made a pot roast is the slower cooker at their house so they would have a nice dinner and not have to worry about cooking. I saw these biscuits on pinterest and knew I wanted to try them. I have also made them when I just cooked a turkey breast for the family. They are so light and yummy. A must try for sure.
~~ 7 UP BISCUITS ~~
4 cups Bisquick
1 cup sour cream
1 cup 7-up
1/2 cup melted butter
**I added about 1/3 cup shredded colby/jack cheese*
Mix Bisquick, sour cream and 7 up. Dough will be very soft - don't worry. Knead and fold dough until coated with your baking mix. Pat dough out and cut biscuits using a round biscuit / cookie cutter. Melt butter in bottom of cookie sheet pan or 9x13 casserole dish. Place biscuits on top of melted butter and bake @ 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until brown.
I think the next time I make these I am add some herbs and garlic and see if I can get them to taste like Red Lobster biscuits.
Have a great day everyone, and thanks for taking time to stop by. Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the things You L♥ve.

For the Batter
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 large Granny Smith apples (cored, peeled, and sliced)
Streusel Topping (recipe follows)
Caramel Sauce (recipe follows)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 cups all-purpose
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350° F (About 180° C). Grease and flour a 9-in (22.5 cm) springform pan. Reserve.
Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add the apples; sauté for 5 minutes or until softened.
Remove from heat; cool completely (about 30 minutes). Meanwhile, prepare the Streusel Topping and Caramel Sauce. Reserve 1/2
cup Caramel Sauce to drizzle the cake with just before serving. At medium speed, beat the butter with an electric mixer until creamy;
gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating
after each addition until well blended. In a separate bowl, combine
flour, baking powder, and salt. Beginning and ending with this flour
mixture, add to the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beating at
low speed until well blended after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Pour batter into the prepared pan, top with apples, drizzle with 1/2 cup Caramel Sauce; then, sprinkle with Streusel Topping. If using a dark, coated springform pan, bake at 325° for 45 minutes (if
using a noncoated shiny springform pan, bake at 350° for 45 minutes).
After these 45 minutes, cover loosely with aluminum foil in order to
prevent excessive browning; bake for additional 25 to 30 minutes or
until center is set (note: wooden toothpick will not come out clean due
to the caramel).

This is Eli, he arrived August 29, 2014 at about 11:20. He was 7 lbs 3 oz and 21 inches long. What a beautiful baby boy. Was a long day and a half waiting on him but well worth the wait. Here are some pictures of him and his new family.
Welcome to our family little man, it's going to be wonderful to see all the changes as you grow. Will get pictures of Eli and Mommy today.

This is her today.
Today is my granddaughters birthday she will be 14....where have all those years gone. She is such a beautiful young lady with so many talents. She is a champion in the rodeo arena winning many buckles, saddles and other items. This past summer she won the championship goat tying at the JR High Rodeo Finals. She is also an accomplished dancer both in ballet, tap and jazz. This year she will be going into high school. So proud of you Lyndsey and wish we were closer so I could celebrate all these wonderful occasions with you.
Love you so much. Have a wonderful day.

2014 Grand Champion Goat Tying JR High Rodeo
I've been trying to get this posted for weeks now. Don't know if I've mentioned that I've gone back to work. It was suppose to just a part time job, maybe 20 hrs a week and it's turned into a 90 hour a week plus job. Before I retired I was an apartment manager (tough profession), well after 4 years of retirement I decided I wanted a part time job so I got a job at Home Depot as a cashier, it was going pretty good, was not crazy about the hours but hey....well anyway this gentleman that I knew who owns many rental properties came into Home Depot and asked why I was working there and that I needed to come to work for him. Well, after many back and forth phone calls I finally caved and took the job. The first couple of weeks were just about 25 hours and then it got closer to what we call "turn" and I decided with all I had to do 25 hours were not enough time so I kept increasing the hours a day and here I am.
Anyway, what I am getting at is a couple of weeks ago my beautiful granddaughter Lyndsey made it to the JR High Rodeo finals, which were held in Des Moines, Iowa which is about 3.5 hrs from here so of course I was going to go and see her compete. What an exciting and wonderful time it was. She won all her go rounds and was in second place for the final competition and won by just 100's of seconds. OH My it was heart pounding excitement.
Here she is with some of her winnings.
Love you so much....Mammy.
thanks for taking time to stop by, I do have some new recipes to share and will do so very soon. Have a great weekend and Remember to Always Find the Time to Do ALL the Things YOU Love.

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter (plain or crunchy)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
|Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs.|
|In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.|
|Roll into 1 inch
balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making
a criss-cross pattern. (a simple tip, dip the fork in water then into sugar before making flattening) Bake in a preheated 375° oven for
about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.|

This is my beautiful granddaughter Lyndsey. He just graduated from St. Mary's School. No she's not a senior, she just finished 8th grade. She will go to Public School in the fall. We are so proud of her, she is a beautiful young lady with many talents. She loves to Rodeo and also does ballet. She is very accomplished in both. She and her brother have won many saddles, buckles and awards in Rodeo. She has been in the Nutcracker several times, and this past year did Point.
Love you very much Lyndsey....oh yes and Jake too. :)
