Rosemary Focaccia Biscuit Bread

I’m not originally from the south, but I love southern food. And that includes biscuits—especially biscuits! I love them hot from the oven with some butter or topped with sausage gravy…mmm! A few years back, I had the chance to review a cookbook called Biscuits: Sweet and Savory Southern Recipes for the All-American Kitchen by Jackie Garvin, that has all kinds of great biscuit recipes. I chose to make the Rosemary Focaccia Biscuit Bread because, in addition to biscuits, I also love focaccia—so what could be better than a combination of both? And it looked like a simple, easy recipe anyone could make. It’s been awhile since this recipe has been posted, so I thought I’d repost it because it’s so good!

Strawberry Banana Muffins

Whole Wheat Honey Banana Bread

Chiles Rellenos Bake

Just a warning here…this Chiles Rellenos Bake is very addicting! Made in a square baking pan, you cut it into squares, and it makes such a great, cheesy appetizer or snack—or even a tasty brunch side dish! It’s really hard to stop eating!

The flavor of the chiles blended with the cheese is so good! Whatever the occasion or meal you make this for, I’m sure it will be a big hit! If you need more servings for a larger crowd, double the recipe and make it in a 9 x 13″ pan. If you happen to have leftovers, it reheats in the microwave well too!

Friendship Spiced Tea
