Parmesan Herb Biscuits

Who cares about these biscuits? Yes, Yes they were good and you should make them. Yes they were really easy to make. Maybe a little less herbs next time.

The really important news of the day is look....I have three columns. I finally figured out how to do it!! None of the standard blogger formats have three columns and I finally figured out how to edit my html to get them. I was scared to death, thought for sure I would delete my entire blog and then cry all during dinner as I mourned the loss of my blog. But no, I did it. No more three column envy, I have them! Is anyone else excited? Please don't ask me how I did it, I'm pretty sure I couldn't do it again! I can give you the biscuit recipe though...

  1. I snuck in last night as saw you had three columns. Nice work!

    And the biscuits look good too.

  2. The biscuits look like they are the perfect accompaniment to a good soup!

  3. Ha! 3 columns of blog and 3 columns of biscuits! Very clever!
