Are you looking for a savory addition to just about any homemade meal? How about a light, sweet dessert your whole family will love? Well, I can show you how easy it is to make both.

Hi, I'm Cricket Azima. Now, biscuits may be one of the most versatile treats out there. They go with breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And these cheese garlic biscuits are no exception.

You're going to start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees. You're going to use some Bisquick, some milk, and shredded cheddar cheese. Once your dough is formed, scoop spoonfuls of the dough onto a cookie sheet, pop it into the oven for about eight to 10 minutes.

Once the biscuits are done, you're going to make some garlic butter by simply adding some garlic powder to some melted butter. You'll stir together. And then, you'll lightly brush on top of each of the biscuits.

These biscuits are great. They complete everything from baked chicken to lasagna. Now if you're looking for something on the sweeter side, here's a perfect recipe. Strawberry shortcake. It's one of the most delicious and easy to make homemade desserts there is.

You're going to mix together some strawberries with some sugar. Now, I prefer to use fresh strawberries. But if they aren't in season, frozen make a great alternative. If you're using fresh strawberries, you're going to want to soak them up a little bit. So you want to set them aside after you've added the sugar.

But with frozen, you're ready to go. You're going to preheat your oven to 425. In a large bowl, you're going to start with some Bisquick. Add some milk, sugar, and melted butter or margarine, and stir to make a dough.

Then, you're going to scoop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. And then, you're going to bake for about 10 to 12 minutes. After they're out of the oven, you're going to let the biscuits cool and cut them in half.

Then, it's time to assemble them by simply layering some of the strawberries and some whipped cream. You can use store bought whipped cream or homemade. Put the top back onto the shortcake. And a few more strawberries. A dollop of whipped cream. And ta-da, you're done. So quick, so easy, and oh so delicious.
