yummy cheesy garlic ballsYou guys, I’m actually cooking for my family (most days) and I just don’t even know who I am right now. (Side note: I can either keep up with laundry or cook meals… this week cooking wins.) Today I want to share this recipe for an easy appetizer. It hits my three main food groups:

1| Cheese.
2| Bread.
3| Marinara Sauce.

Do I need to even say anything else to sell you on why you should try these? Nope. Didn’t think so. They are SO easy to make, even Blaire can do half of the steps. Her favorite parts are placing the cheese in the middle of the biscuit and then closing the ends around it, and also eating the leftover cheese cubes once she’s finished, of course.
