Lemon Blueberry Biscuits

I love to try new recipes, but I have a problem- I have so many saved, pinned, and printed, I sometimes have a hard time narrowing down what to make!  Having a theme makes it so much easier for me to decide. This month, I'm joining the #BakingBloggers, and we're sharing biscuit and scones recipes.

Poring over my mountain of choices, I thought about what flavors I'm loving right now, and what I have on hand.  We moved 4 blueberry bushes from my parent's property to ours this spring, and while it was a slow year for them, there's been a good amount.

I ended up choosing these Lemon Blueberry Biscuits from Taste of Home.  I had all the ingredients on hand. The only change I made was using Greek yogurt, and I only had a 5.3oz container, so I made up the volume difference with some sour cream.   I used a cookie scoop to portion, and next time I'd probably not. It made them a little more smooth-topped and a tiny bit compacted on the interior.

These disappeared in a flash.  They'd also be great with orange zest/juice. I'm also going to make a version with blackberries, since we have another few weeks worth of those ripening in the yard.  Thanks so much to the Test Kitchen for another family favorite recipe!

Be sure to check out what other bakers are serving up this month, using the links at the bottom of the post.  Big thanks going out to Sue from Palatable Pastime for hosting this month and inviting me to jump in!

  1. Sound like they would go fast in this household too Jolene.

  2. If only we all had time to make every recipe we have stored in our must-make-someday folder! I love that you used sour cream in these too...I have a feeling I'll be doing that more often!

  3. Jealous of your blackberries growing in your yard! These look wonderful and sound delicious.

  4. I bet they disappeared in a flash! They are soooo pretty, and lemon and blueberry need to get married.

  5. I love how much less-fat this recipe is- I am on a scone kick now, so I have to try this!

  6. I love lemon and blueberry together and these sound great - like the idea of yogurt in there.

  7. So jealous, you have blueberry bushes you can go and pick fresh, and they play so well with lemon as well. I wonder how cremé fraiché would go? hmmmm

  8. I would love these for breakfast any day of the week! Thanks for baking with us.

  9. I would love one of these biscuits for breakfast right now! They look SO good. I'm making them a feature at this week's Whimsical Wednesdays Link Party! Thank you so much for linking up with us. :-D

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!   Fried Lasagna P

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Southern Bird Dogs

We're eating lots of poultry lately, and I've started hearing the grumbling from my family.   With the grill covered with snow and ice again (yay New England!), my options were a little limited.    Staring at the package of chicken tenders in my fridge, I wondered what I could do to them that would be exciting and different.   I had a few hot dog rolls and 4 strips of bacon that needed to be used up. Enter Southern Bird Dogs.  I saw this recipe on She Wears Many Hats .   She used storebought chicken tenders, but recommended this recipe from Add A Pinch to make them from scratch.    I had everything on hand except the buttermilk.     I used the "add vinegar to regular milk" trick instead.   The only problem is that though that mimics the tang of buttermilk, it doesn't have that nice thick consistency.    My first coating on the chicken seemed thin, so I let them sit for 20 mins, then put them back through the milk and flour mixtures again.    I gave them another
