With the help of store-bought baking mix, you can whip up a fresh batch of these cheesy biscuits whenever the craving strikes. No real baking expertise is required, simply combine Bisquick with milk and cheddar cheese and stir. You can easily commit this recipe to memory and volunteer yourself as the resident biscuit maker for holiday and celebratory gatherings with friends and family. If you’re feeling adventurous, try different varieties of cheddar in your biscuits, such as white cheddar or a smoky aged cheddar.
Don't throw away overripe bananas. With just a few pantry staples you can turn those bruised beauties into delicious Banana-Nut Bread. You'll love my version spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.
With just enough black pepper to make it spicy and herbs and duck fat to add richness, this bread is the epitome of savory and delicious. Duck fat can be found at specialty stores, but you can substitute chicken or turkey fat as well. Make sure to purchase active dry yeast (as opposed to rapid rise) for this recipe. We love the idea of a slice or two smothered in gravy, using this bread for a upgraded turkey sandwich, or using it to make a grilled cheese that's out-of-this-world.
This traditionally Jewish bread requires 2 rising times, but the rich anf fluffy result is definitely worth it. Toast it, top it with jam, or use leftovers in French toast. You can also use dark raisins, dried cranberries, or omit the raisins completely, if desired. Divide the dough into 3 pieces for easier braiding.
