Cooking for Company

This past weekend we had 2 visitors from mom and my aunt Barb. Of course, this was a perfect opportunity to showcase some new recipes. Long before the day of their arrival, I was planning the perfect weekend menu. There just weren't enough days to try everything I wanted to. So, this post and the next couple will be the food that made the cut. The night they arrived, I made a dish that I've made several times...Penne a la Betsy. I knew that was sure to impress and it did.

The first morning they were with us, I whipped up this before we headed to the beach for the day. I can't even find words to describe how perfect this recipe is...easy, soft, melt in your mouth, divine...oh my goodness. Promise me you will make these...soon! Pinky promise. Ok, here goes. Thanks to Amy over at Sing for your Supper for a recipe that will never leave my side as long as I live. Yes, it's my new best friend.
Lindsay's Sweetly Simple Coffee Cake
(I may just call them Sweet Rolls from now on)

2 10-oz tubes refrigerated biscuits
1/4 c margarine, melted
1/3 c brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c chopped nuts (I omitted for the guests)

Arrange biscuits very close together in a 9" round cake pan (I used my springform which worked great). Mix together margarine, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nuts; spread over biscuits. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

These look delicious!! It kinda reminds me of monkey bread, toned down a bit.
