Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. This might be my favorite food. They are probably 500 calories a piece, but they taste so amazing that they make me not care. The best copycat of a Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit that I’ve ever come across, this one is a permanent entry in my personal recipe book. No biscuick mix. No nonsense. All flavor. Garlicy, cheesy, buttery goodness.

A fabulous recipe I came across today is from A Farm Girl’s Dabbles. I spotted her photo over on foodgawker, and being the pasta fanatic that I am, I clicked right over. I was so excited when I was reading down the list and saw that I had every ingredient. That so rarely happens. I saw it at 11:19 and it was done by noon! This soup was incredible. I’m not usually much of a sausage fan, but the Johnsonville Sweet Italian Sausage that I picked up last night.
