Mother's Day and Goat Cheese Drop Biscuits

Happy Mother's Day to all the woman who are mothers or who care for someone as if they were their mother. You are special woman and I hope you had a wonderful day. We had a lovely evening today. I brought a couple of salads and a dessert over to Mom and Dad's. Then baked some heavenly biscuits once I got there. Everything was delicious but the biscuits! WOW! Here is more about our Mother's Day salad plate.

Mother's Day 2014

Avocado Chicken Salad
Strawberry Cucumber Salad
Goat Cheese Drop Biscuits
Banana Split Yogurt Pie

I am some what obsessed with this first recipe. My friend sent me the pin Avocado Chicken Salad on Pinterest. We were suppose to get together and have a cook day and make this recipe. Well ... I happened to have everything to make the recipe so I had to make it. It is so amazing! Like guacamole dressed chicken salad. I used Rachael Ray's poached chicken, so moist. I just knew Mom would love it, so it had to go on her Mother's Day salad plate. Go see Jadah at Salted Paleo for the 

The next salad is also a Pinterest discovery. I love combining fruit and vegetables in a salad. The cucumber and strawberries are wonderful together. And the orange, basil and mint takes it over the top. Go see Rebecca at mamaguru for the 

Did you see the cute orange cup I put it in? Well I have to thank Sherry at Jazzy Gourmet for her tutorial. Her video made it really easy to make a Orange Cup.

Okay now for the surprise of the evening. I really had no idea when I decided to add goat cheese to our family Drop Biscuits recipe it would be so amazing! They were so fluffy and moist. Then there was the cheese! Both the goat cheese and the Parmesan was so delicious. I will definitely be making these biscuits again. You must try it. They are worthy of being at your next dinner party.
