Those recipes sound delicious. As we are having soup this evening I may try the drop biscuits--I'm sure they would go well with soup! I'll comment later if I do and perhaps do a post about them on my family's new blog! :-) Thank you for sharing!

Blessings,
Sonja

They were delicious and I recieved many lovely comments. :-) I'll be doing a post about them on Returning to the Basics shortly (of course linking back to your site. :-)) Thank you again!

Dearest Jenna,
Mmmmm, yum. All of the recipes you shared sound delicious!
The last one, the spinach salad, sounds very yummy. I am a big spinach and nut fan, so I think I am going to have to put this on my "recipes to be made list"!

P.S. My special day is on February 10th, I will be turning 15 then!
