Whole Wheat Parmesan Biscuits

I did it. I jumped on the band wagon. I swear, iPhones are taking over the world. And I’m contributing to it.

Today, I got an iPhone. Just a simple 4S little guy. Non of that talking lady stuff. She’s weird… And I always ask her to “tell me a joke” on my friends’ iPhones and she either doesn’t understand me or doesn’t know any jokes. Hmph. Then I don’t need you.

I’ve already downloaded Instagram. I cannot wait until I have a need to take pictures. Skinny Muffin is about to have a whole new look due to the vast amount of Instagram photos coming in. Get ready, Skinny Muffin. Vintage photos are taking over!

On to food. Biscuits are a thing of the south. Biscuits and sweet tea go hand in hand in North Carolina. And fried chicken and barbecue… I think. I don’t know anything about that nonsense.

I used to think that I hated biscuits. Biscuitville, Bojangles – it just didn’t do it for me. I’d rather have oatmeal or cereal or a muffin for breakfast. Ooh or some Nutella-filled croissants…

And thennnn I made these babies. We all know I’m a whole-wheat freak. I just love the hearty, graininess. Add some parmesan cheese and I’m a happy camper.

Go. Go make some hearty, grainy, cheesy, flaky biscuits. They’re fast and easy and will turn anyone into a biscuit-lover.
