5 minute whole wheat drop biscuits

With simple ingredients and the use of a handy kitchen appliance, you can have fresh biscuits out of your oven in a half hour from start to finish - and in the oven in just 5 minutes from when you start. These are my current go-to when I am making a big pot of soup or stew and we want a little something to go with it.  They are absolutely perfect for soaking up gravy and broth, and they are amazing just piping hot with a little butter. They are also perfect for my couple of picky kids, because even if they don't eat the soup or stew that I'm serving for dinner, they are at least getting something made with whole grain and the protein of yogurt, milk, and egg.

Creamed Greens

Creamed greens is a great way to use up those big bunches of greens, and has become one of my favorite ways to cook them (aside from just a simple sautéing with butter and garlic).  This is reminiscent of the old creamed spinach that we used to have as kids (I think it came from a box in the freezer section), but even more flavorful if made with some of the more hearty greens that are so available now.  It’s super easy to make, goes with a lot of meals, and takes greens down to a texture that sometimes even the kids will eat.  I think it's a great way to introduce some of the stronger flavored greens - cooking them down with butter and blending with cheese and cream tempers the flavor a bit, and the long cooking and blending helps with the texture that some people don't like.
