Gluten Free Cheesy Biscuits

The other night at about 8pm I got a craving for biscuits. I hadn’t felt well earlier in the evening, so I didn’t have dinner, which meant I needed to make the biscuits right then because I was HUNGRY! Luckily, I had purchased a box of Gluten Free Bisquick a week ago for some pancakes I forgot to take pictures of and therefore couldn’t blog about.

I found a recipe on Betty Crocker’s website for Cheese Garlic Biscuits and altered it to fit my needs craving.

Here’s what I made…

What do you crave for a late night snack?

Copy Cat – Spaghetti Squash Casserole

It’s been a while since I posted a copy cat recipe, but I last week I went back to True Food Kitchen in Newport Beach and discovered a dish I really enjoyed that I knew it would be easy peasy to make at home. {Did you click on any of those hyperlinks? Go ahead, I’ll wait ;-)}

First off, if you live in Orange County and haven’t been to True Food Kitchen at Fashion Island yet, make a plan to go soon. You will not be disappointed! My sister and went (again) recently and I decided to try something new, the Spaghetti Squash Casserole.


I forgot to take a picture (bad blogger), but luckily Kay C. on Yelp took this

Kay C’s actually looks a bit more tomatoey (What? That’s a word) than mine did, but you get the idea.

How do you make it? Easy, it looks like this…

You want an actually recipe? Sheesh, you’re picky ;-) Kidding of course, I would too.

Mmmmm, melty cheese…

Have you copied a recipe you’ve loved at a restaurant?

Five for Friday

Previous Fridays

1 - You said I was the prettiest bridesmaid at the wedding this past weekend.

2 - You tell me everyday how excited you are to hang out with me.

3 - Even though you’re not a big fan of change, you were pretty cool about me dying my hair red.

4 - You wrote a really nice Best Man speech for Jeremiah & Tiffany.

5 - You saw a Crazy, Stupid, Love with me and my sister.

Going Red

I’ve always wanted to be a red head. I think it all started with Anne of Green Gables… I wanted her hair.

It looks like I wasn’t the only one, in an interview with ‘Lucky’, Christina Hendricks told them “I was obsessed with Anne of Green Gables, so I wanted red hair.”

I kinda want to be Christina Hendricks too ;-)

Anywhoodle, this week I decided if I wanted red hair so badly, I should just get red hair… and I did.

Here I am right after my hair cut on Tuesday…

And, here I am right after I dyed my hair red on Thursday…

I LOVE IT! I feel extra sassy and fun :)

Do you dye your hair? Do you have any tips to maintain the brilliance?
