You gotta love the biscuits at Red Lobster. But you can save yourself time, money and calories by whipping up this lighter version at home. They're just as yummy and a snap to make.
I've had this pamphlet-style cookbook for years. I think it came with a box of Reduced-Fat Bisquick. I've been passing it over for quite some time, since it's small and easy to miss but I picked it up last week and thought, gosh, this has some good recipes in it. This one is somewhat pedestrian and honestly, one I used to make quite often, but it's still worth blogging about since maybe I'm not the only person who forgot how good and easy this recipe is.
A Blast From the Past: Cavatappi with Pepperoni from January 2006. I think I might make this soon, using Dreamfields or whole wheat pasta. I need fast meals between now and Thanksgiving.
Question of the Day: How often to do you go out to eat?
