***Special Report*** My kitchen is finally fixed…..it only took seven weeks! Now hubby and I can completely stop living out of our living room. We LIKE our living room, but our kitchen stuff needs to live IN THE KITCHEN!!!! Ahhhhhh….Happiness! To celebrate all this happiness, let’s enjoy a beer in our biscuits…..and beer with those biscuits too!
Both recipes I am sharing this week include booze. Are you as excited as I am?
Now my Grandmother’s maiden name is Kelly, so I for sure have some Irish in my blood. Since it is almost St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to share a couple St. Patty’s Day inspired recipes. One of the recipes will be from hubby, it is his specialty…..so be prepared for a fun dish coming VERY soon!!!
I had the opportunity to go to Ireland the year before my senior year in high school. What an amazing experience, and one I want relive with my hubby hopefully someday soon! That was where I had my first experience with smoked salmon, it was seriously delicious. I was also introduced to warm Guinness. Yes, warm beer. Apparently that is common in Ireland, to enjoy a tall warm one. I have to say, I would rather stick to tall cold ones, please!
Do you know those recipe books that are at the check-out counter at the grocery store? Well last year I remember picking up a Irish Favorites recipe book. It really has some lovely treats shared in the book.
I decided on biscuits because I was craving some, and I had found the cutest biscuit cutter at an antique store last weekend. This recipe has been adapted, and includes a wee bit of Chobani Greek Yogurt.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray sheet pan with cooking spray.
In medium bowl, mix together both flours, baking powder, salt, rosemary, cheese, and cold cubed butter. With a pastry cutter or your hands, mix and break-up butter in flour mixture until mixture is crumbles. Add in yogurt, and mix well. Then add in beer, and mix well. If your biscuit mixture is too dry, add more beer. If your biscuit mixture is too sticky, add a little flour.
Bring mixture together with hands and place on a lightly floured surface. Spread out dough with hands, I had my dough about 1/4 inch thick. You can make the biscuits thicker if you choose. Use biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits. I had 12 biscuits, it depends on how thick you make them.
Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on oven, or until golden brown.
Hubby and I made chili last weekend, and we complimented the cozy bowl with a couple of these biscuits! They are really delicious, and full of flavor!
