So I found this really fast biscuit recipe that I've started using instead of my regular breadsticks. My family loves it. And its so much easier and faster than breadsticks, and I'm lazy.
Butter-Dipped Biscuit Squares

2 c. self-rising flour (3 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. salt, then add up to 2 c. flour)
2 T. sugar
1 c. milk

1/2 c. butter (no margarine) melted

Combine the flour, sugar and milk and mix well. Turn onto a well floured surface; and sprinkle with more flour on top. Pat the dough down to 1/2 inch thickness. With a sharp knife dipped in flour, cut into 3x2in pieces. Pour the butter into an ungreased 13x9 pan. Dip each side of piece into melted butter; carefully turn to coat. Bake, uncovered, 450 for 10min.

The dough is really sticky so don't try to knead it or work with it; just pat it into the floured surface and put enough flour on top so it doesn't stick to your hands. Then, if you don't want it so buttery, just dip it into the butter, but cook it on a non-buttered pan. Yummy.

Large Group Recipes

I need some easy recipes for groups of 15 or more. This weekend I am planning and preparing 4 days worth of meals for my whole family at my parents' home. I feel like I've used all my good ideas on my family before and would like to try some new things. Any suggestions?

New Format

So I was thinking that I want to change this blog a little bit. I want whoever wants, to be able to post their own suggestions for recipe and menu ideas. So let me know if you want to be an author on this site and I will add you. By the way, I have been using some of these recipes with great success - thanks.

So instead of recipes this time, I'm just wondering what people eat for breakfast these days. Do you have the same thing every morning? Do you rotate through stuff? Hot? Cold? And feel free to add recipes if you want.

Since I'm sick this week, I'm looking for recipes you can just throw into the crockpot. What is your best crockpot recipe?
