I’m sorry, but how did we end up in April?! Cuddled up in blankets with my hands around a hot cocoa this winter, spring seemed like an eternity away. But, my growing belly has reminded me that time is chugging along and warmer weather is quickly approaching… as is our baby girl!

Thus, I’ve been focusing (maybe a little obsessively) over cleaning, organizing, and planning ahead to make our lives a little easier in the months to come. Freezer meals are being made, tiny onesies are folded in drawers, and I’m pretty sure I’ve bought out Target’s entire stock of plastic bins, big and small. For storing what? EVERYTHING. And every “thing” to come.

Say hello to nesting overdrive!

All these baby projects have left little time to think about much else, including dinner. But, with a busier schedule comes quicker and easier meals. I’ve come up with some great solutions for keeping them scrumptious yet fast, which I can’t wait to share with you!

My favorite quick dinner lately has been grilled steak, chicken or fish (easily marinated in the morning), a fresh green salad, and a basket of these soft, garlicky Parmesan knots. OMG. Lick-the-plate delicious, if I do say so myself… thanks in part to my grill-master hubby.

But, to the bread (the best part) – Have I told you how easy these knots are? What’s that, I haven’t?

Well, it’s about darn time I do.

All you need for these doughy, delicious garlic knots is THREE ingredients, plus some spices. That’s it! Grab a can of buttermilk biscuit dough and stretch each biscuit into wiggly ropes (fun for kids). Tie each rope into a little knot. Mix up butter, Parmesan, garlic powder, oregano and parsley in a bowl, and slather that buttery goodness over top. Bake ‘til golden, brush on a bit more butter, and you’re done!

Easy enough for weeknights, date nights in, and… well, any night! There’s no limit to all the mouthwatering main courses you can serve them alongside.

Give ‘em a go for yourself, and I guarantee you’ll be hooked like me on this quick and easy side!

    These look amazing! I love all kinds of cooking and baking — except that I’ve never fallen in love with making bread. But these skip the part I don’t like — hooray!

    I love thinking of you nesting. Every mother remembers that time when the pregnancy is going along but you’re quite ready to hold the little one in your arms – finally.

    I could enjoy these wonderful garlic knots while you fold onesies. :)

    Sounds like you are prepared for your baby, I think I would be a frazzled mess if it was me. It’s funny you posted a recipe for garlic parmesan knots. My husband and I were at a pizza place over the weekend debating whether to get an order of these off the menu, glad I now have a recipe and can make them whenever we get the craving!

    Hi there little mama! Folding up onsies… awe so sweet and you are so ready…I remember with my last boy, we had to stop on the way home from the hospital to pick up diapers. LOL. I bet these little delicious quick and go knots might freeze well too for later on. The other day you brought a smile to my face as I was just bored with my usual chicken recipes and was looking over some food photos and I saw one of yours so of course I gravitated to your recipe and of course it was delicious.

    When I saw the dough pictures I thought it’s homemade dough, but I’m SUPER excited to find out you used the buttermilk biscuits! I can’t believe how easy this is, and and you’re right, this will be a fun project for kids. While I cook main dish, kids can make these knots for me (although the outcome will be less pretty lol). THANK YOU for a great idea. Going to buy a can (or maybe two cans) today!

    Consuelo @ Honey & Figs — April 1, 2014 @ 11:07 am

    Oh wow, these lovely knots sound so easy to make! I’m dying to try them soon (and you bet I will, because carb-loading means “EAT ALL THE GARLIC PARMESAN KNOTS!!!”. So bookmarking these to make this week. They look incredible!
    Hope you have a nice day! xx

    Amy @ Fearless Homemaker — April 2, 2014 @ 9:08 am

    Oh, Georgia, these look heavenly! And enjoy the nesting phase. At this time last year, I was just about as pregnant as you are now, nesting and cooking and making freezer meals and folding freshly-laundered onesies myself. It was a wonderful time! (Although admittedly not as wonderful as it will be once your little lady arrives- that’s even more fun!). =)

    Erin @ Texanerin Baking — April 10, 2014 @ 10:08 am

    Pillsbury finally started selling biscuits over here which means I can make these! Eeee! They sound awesome. Can’t wait!

    Have fun with your baby projects! :)

    PS – It’s weird but the biscuits don’t really taste similar. At all. I don’t know what’s up with that.

    Grace E. — April 15, 2014 @ 11:44 am

    Is there a recipe for the buttermilk biscuits?

    • Georgia — April 15th, 2014 @ 11:47 am

      The biscuits I used in this recipe are Pillsbury canned, but I do have a homemade biscuits recipe that you can search for.

    I want to make these for a friend that i am providing dinner for tomorrow night. Do you think i could make them and cover and refrigerate for the day and let them bake them? (they would be fresher) or should i bake and wrap in foil for the day?


    • Georgia — October 9th, 2014 @ 10:56 am

      I would recommend assembling and baking these yourself just before bringing them over, not assembling and letting the recipient bake. Hope that answers your question!

    Hannah — October 13, 2014 @ 5:23 pm

    Hi, this kind of goes along with the last comment. I want to bring these for a pot luck lunch at my work but we do not have an oven here. Do you think I could reheat them in a toaster oven or microwave?

    • Georgia — October 13th, 2014 @ 5:25 pm

      Yes, you can reheat them in the microwave.
