i won't be posting to my google blog anymore (not that i posted there much anyway, lol!) but instead i will be using this space to share new creations, upcoming events, and most importantly inexpensive recipes and crafts that you can do on your own.
i hope to post often (at least once a week), now that i am finally in a place where my creative juices are definitely flowing freely. those of you who know me personally know that i am a bit of a perfectionist and have a little OCD, so it has taken me a while to even begin to get my act together! but i am here, and i am living the life that i love: eating healthy foods, playing with children daily, and giving in to my creative intuition as much as i can!
here is a recipe to get you started, and thanks for visiting today-- come back soon, and be sure to invite your friends!
easy blueberry biscuits
one way i save money is by regularly just going through my refrigerator and pantry and looking at odds and ends. this particular weekend morning, i had a ton of blueberries too ripe for eating, half a box of bisquick, and not much else to cook for breakfast... not wanting to make plain ol' biscuits, i opted to stick some berries in them. oh, and i forgot to mention: this was during my 14-day hiatus from added sugar-- a whole other topic!
i dunno if it was my longing for sugar, or the juiciness of the berries-- which popped in the oven and leaked all over!!!-- but these were the best darn biscuits i've ever eaten! i've actually made them a few more times since then!
i love the ease of prepackaged foods, but i don't buy them too often, because they are not always the best for you-- usually packed full of excess salt, sugar, fat, and unpronounceable chemicals... and usually when i do buy them, i doctor them, to make them a little healthier or even a little more palatable. bisquick is no exception! here's the recipe i used to make these quick and yummy breakfast treats:
2 1/4 cups biquick baking mix
2/3 cup 1% milk
1/3 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
1 cup blueberries
preheat oven to 450 degrees. mix baking mix, milk, and yogurt together until well blended. gently fold in blueberries. drop by large spoonfuls onto a lightly greased baking sheet (or an ungreased well-seasoned baking stone, like i used). bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown. let cool for at least 5 minutes, so as not to burn your mouth on those yummy juices! store leftovers (if there are any!) in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
