I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

For the past 3 months my main outing has been going to the grocery store every two weeks. I go on Sunday morning at 7:00 a.m., very few customers on that day and time of day. When I first started on my routine I noticed that 99% of the customers I saw were wearing masks but this past weekend maybe half were. I am worried that we are starting to feel safe because in our county we haven’t experience new cases of the virus for a few days but we are still in the midst of a pandemic. Our state had over 300 new cases and some deaths yesterday so it is far from over. Many states are experiencing a surge of cases and since its summer people are traveling. I know its hard, we miss seeing our families, going out to eat, meeting friends for lunch, its hard to distance and wear the uncomfortable masks but the alternative of fighting to breathe because of this often fatal disease is so much worse. So please everyone lets try to protect each other and practice distancing, washing our hands frequently and wearing those masks!
I love just about anything that has cream cheese as an ingredient, this appetizer recipe I have recently found is no exception, I hope you enjoy it too!
Bacon cream cheese biscuits
1 can refrigerated biscuits
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese, bacon, green onions, garlic powder and parmesan cheese, mix well
Open can of biscuit dough and separate out each biscuit, roll each biscuit out flat.
Take a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture and place it into the center of the biscuit dough. take the edges of the dough and fold over until the cheese is covered, pinch edges to seal.
Place on a greased baking sheet and repeat until all the biscuit dough is filled. Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on each biscuit. Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
Have a safe week!
