Cheddar Dill Biscuits

Holy moly, these taste pretty darn close to those addicting biscuits they serve you at a certain popular chain seafood restaurant.  Know the one I'm talking about?
A few nights back I threw together some pasta for dinner {which ended up being nothing to rave about} and instead of doing the typical garlic bread as a side, I made these biscuits.  Which in turn, were something to rave about.
In fact every day since then I have been warming one up in the microwave for an afternoon snack and then regretting it later while I walk around with dill/garlic breath.
You have to pick your battles.

Please do not be intimidated with making biscuits.  Unlike bread, no kneading is required, just a little elbow grease to mix in the ingredients together and a floured surface to press the dough down flat and a sharp knife to cut.  That's it!
I even made these with three kids in the same room as me.  I'm pretty sure there was a bit of crying, yelling and bickering with each other going on, but I just turned my back to it all for a few minutes to mix this dough together.
Sometimes you just have to let them work it out.

Now I know biscuits aren't typically a "summer" side dish, but that doesn't mean you can't make them.  I baked mine in my toaster oven so I didn't heat up the kitchen.  And like I said prior, they made up for a piss poor pasta dish I made.
{It was edible.....just bland and boring}.
You win some you lose some.

You had better tuck this little gem of a recipe away for the Fall months as well.  I can see these working fantastically with a hearty soup, casserole or stew.
But I'm not going to think about Fall right now, because lets be honest after the winter we had, I am trying to embrace this glorious summer!
