Hello from the Hunt Kitchen!

I was told I have lots of good recipes and that I should start a recipe blog, so here ya go! My fondest memories of home were sitting around to the table each evening with my family to eat a good home-cooked meal and I desire to keep that tradition going in my own home. I work hard to make sure my family has a good and balanced meal each day. I have tried each of these recipes and give them my approval.

I'm going to post my weekly menus as well, so feel free to mooch if you like. I do all my grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I plan my menus from Saturday to Friday. Friday is always Pizza Day; Saturday is usually open to either leftovers or some sort of burger. Wednesdays are usually leftovers as well - most of the recipes make more than enough for dinner for our family of 5, so we always have food to eat on Wednesdays without having to fix something new.

Please leave your comments on any recipe you try - even if it didn't work out! Bon Appetit!!

Orange Cream Cheese Biscuits

3 cups Bisquick Original Baking mix
2 tsp. grated orange peel
3/4 orange juice
1 pkg. (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 Tbs. orange marmalade

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix baking mix, orange peel, and orange juice until soft dough forms; beat vigorously 30 seconds. Turn dough onto surface generously dusted with baking mix; roll in baking mix to coat. Knead dough 10 times.

Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with 2 1/2-inch round cutter dipped in baking mix. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Mix cream cheese and marmalade. Spoon about 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture onto center of each circle; sprinkle with sugar.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 15 biscuits.

Serve with: These tasty biscuits would complement any egg dish. Or for a casual breakfast, serve with vanilla yogurt and fresh fruit.

Special Touch: Consider using a unique cookie cutter, such as a bird, heart or star, to produce fun-shaped biscuits.

These are so yummy! I can't get enough of them! They are especially good served with orange marmalade on the side!
