Happy Hallowe'en!

Wow! I can't believe it's Hallowe'en already! I haven't been crafting these last couple of days because I threw out my back after my music department's concert. I was tearing down the concert area with my students, and SNAP! I nearly fell over in pain, instant FIRE on my lower back, and I was like, OMG! SO... I've been making Ian massage my bum on a daily basis (HAHA) and icing it.. But Papercrafts (a magazine I get published in fairly regularly) wanted to spread the word about their newest venture, so here's a look at what's to come with them. You've probably seen it before, but here's a peek if you haven't:

Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits
Alisa Bangerter
This is a perfect recipe to pull out if you are short on time because there is no rolling or cutting. The cheese and garlic add extra kick to a plain biscuit, and kids love them. They are the perfect accompaniment to serve with soups or stews, and are great served with a salad.
2 c. flour
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. butter or margarine
1 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 1/4 c. milk
Chives (optional)
Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in butter with pastry cutter until mixture is fine. Add cheese and mix well. Add milk and stir until just moistened. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Sprinkle top with chopped dried or fresh chives if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 15 minutes.

Here's the online store where you can purchase it, or it will be on stands soon.

Happy Hallowe'en!
