Cheddar Bay & Tina Fey

You know what I love? The free goodies that restaurants sometimes provide to whet your appetite as you think about what to order. Sometimes you'll be lucky enough to get something that beats the pants off your average bread basket...and in my opinion, you can't get much better than the Cheddar Bay biscuits from Red Lobster. The brown bread at Cheesecake Factory and Marie Callender's cornbread come close.
"There is no one of-woman-born who does not like Red Lobster cheddar biscuits. Anyone who claims otherwise is a liar and a Socialist."
Bossypants, Tina Fey
True that, Tina. Sadly, I'm pretty sure no one takes me seriously when I tell them I wish to someday dine at The Red Lobster in Times Square. Perhaps most people over the age of 12 simply find it too mortifying to dine at an establishment with a gigantic revolving red lobster right above the entrance.

Alas, until I can finagle someone into accompanying me to an actual RL, I guess Bisquick's cheddar garlic biscuit mix will have to do. They really are quite successful at approximating the real deal; I used to make them in college all the time. Just add water! I think Tina Fey would approve.
