Cheddar Bay biscuits are easy to make by combining 2 1/2 cups Bisquick with 1/2 stick cold butter using a fork or pastry cutter. Add 1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup cold milk and 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt, and mix. Drop by tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Combine two tablespoons melted butter, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes, and brush the mixture atop the warm biscuits.

For potato soup, bake 3 pounds medium potatoes, and peel them, setting aside three potatoes cut into soup-size cubes and mashing the rest. In a Dutch oven, melt 1 tablespoon butter, and stir in 1 1/2 cups finely chopped onions and 2 tablespoons minced garlic, cooking over low heat for 10 minutes. Stir in the mashed potatoes, and add 1 can chicken broth, 3 cups milk, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, reduce heat, and cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in the cubed potatoes, and cook for a few more minutes.

Make a frappuccino like the ones from Starbucks by making double strength coffee, brewing it with twice the amount of coffee you normally use, and chill. Combine in a blender the coffee, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 cup low-fat milk, 2 cups ice and 3 tablespoons of either caramel or chocolate topping. Blend on high speed until smooth, and pour into two glasses. Top with whipped cream.
