Something new for my kitchen...

Tonight, I made this little sign for the inside door of the spice cabinet.  Occasionally, my lovely daughters need a reminder of  equivalents for different measuring cups.  It all depends on the amount of dirty dishes in the sink.   I have to assume that I am not the only person in this world who can't maintain control over the dirty dishes.

There is nothing new to report on the home front.  The girls are both working at their respective jobs.  I am still at the same places.....either Celina ISD or the LOFT.  I love both of my jobs.  Baseball has begun and someday we will have Spring weather for a day or two.  The boys are happy.

Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Biscuits

 Is there anyone else here in this world who remembers Hardee's and their Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits?    They were one step shy of greatness delivered through their drive-through window all hot and yummy.  Simply Amazing.

For whatever reason..... they came to my mind this morning and I knew that I had to attempt making them.   After skibbling over to Pinterest and searching for something similar,  I combined what I thought to be the best of several recipes.  This is what I ended up with.  They were quick and super easy.  They had the texture and feel of a scone.   I will most likely try to make these fluffier another time....maybe with a round of buttermilk and shortening thrown in for some extra calories for the yum factor.  The bottom line is that these were easy and could satisfy the crave.

2 1/4 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup milk
2 TB sugar

Combine all that...Roll it out and cut into rounds like a biscuit.  Bake @ 450 for about 10 minutes.

Spread this glaze over it all while warm.

2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 TB (about)  warm water or milk
