Homemade Red Lobster Biscuits From Scratch

I have one daughter that especially loves the biscuits they serve at Red Loster, and the rest of us enjoy them as well! So when Abe planned on bringing home some live Maine Lobsters to cook for us for a Valentine's Day treat, that was the incentive I needed to do a search and see what kind of recipe I could find to make them ourselves. I know my sis makes them and they are great, but they use Bisquik, which I did not have on hand. I had an icey driveway and didn't feel like going out just for that... what's the internet for, anyway?! :)
I am happy to link you to the recipe I found and used. I would not want to take any credit for the recipe.

I pretty much followed it, except I did use 1/3 whole wheat flour, which I will probably up to 1/2 next time, because they were light and awesome. (I'd see how much I can add without losing the texture these had.)
I used a mild cheddar, 'cause it's what I had, and I didn't have any parsley so I substituted dried cilantro. I also baked them at 450 degrees instead of 475.
Needless to say, they were very good and will definitely be made in my kitchen again!
