Easy Drop Biscuits

Homemade biscuits are easy by using a simple recipe for drop biscuits.

Easy Drop Biscuits

This week has me realizing just how fast time really does goes by. It was ten years ago this week that I started Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. I knew nothing about blogging and had no idea what I was doing. I started Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures simply as a way to keep an online recipe journal.

I loved to cook and was always changing up recipes. I would constantly try new things and experiment. My husband would ask me to make something and I often could not remember the recipe he was talking about or what I did to make it.

Blogging was just starting to become popular back then and I decided it was a good way to keep track of the recipes I was making.

Those first few months no one really read my site. I was blogging more for me. Then I told a few family members and then a few friends. Then a few random people found me through google and other blogs linking to me and it just went from there.

Those are my kids back in my early years of blogging. They do not like me to share many pictures online now that they are older, but my girls are in college and my son is now almost 6 feet 6 inches tall.

Oh how things have changed. Both in the blog world and at my house.

Social media has changed how blogging and the online world works. It is no longer quite the same as it used to be.

My kids have grown and life has changed for us. My daughter developed a life threatening peanut, tree nut, sesame allergy. My other daughter and I went gluten free due to health issues.

Sometimes I long for the old days. The days when my kids were younger and things were easier in both my blogging and cooking life, but life changes and we adapt.

When I named my site Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures I had no idea how appropriate that name would be. With all the changes in our diet, life in my kitchen has been a huge adventure the last ten years.

In many ways though they are still the same. I still love to cook and bake. I still love to try new things and experiment with recipes. I am still a busy mom with three hungry kids. I still need quick and easy meals that my family will love. So much has changed and yet so much hasn’t.

I know many of you have been around for most of those ten years. You have followed my adventures since the early years of my site.

You have stuck with me through the bad pictures, the poor writing, and the keeping it real updates. Thank you!

I really can’t thank you enough. My readers and the friends I have made online over the last ten years have helped make this site what it is. It wouldn’t be the same without you. Thank you!

Easy Drop Biscuits

Because I have been thinking back over the last ten years I thought I would reshare one of the first recipes that I ever posted here on my site. It is for a simple biscuit recipe that my family loved.

When I shared the recipe back in my first week or two of blogging I didn’t even title it. The post was titled breakfast and it had no pictures. Blogging was so much different back then.

That recipe was one I made all the time before we went gluten free. It is not a traditional biscuit recipe, it is more of a drop biscuit that contains yeast, baking powder, and baking soda. It is based on an old Martha Stewart biscuit recipe. I think it was a recipe that came from the early years of her magazine.

I now have a gluten free version of this recipe that I make all the time. The gluten free version is one of my favorite gluten free biscuits to make. It turns out perfect every time. If you are gluten free be sure to check out the gluten free drop biscuit version.

Gluten Free Drop Biscuits

If you are not gluten free you need to make the version below. They are so good. This is a great recipe for those of you that may not have ever made biscuits or that don’t enjoy making traditional cut out biscuits. Drop biscuits make biscuit making easy!

  1. Congratulations! I don’t comment much, but your blog is one of my favorites. I am in the stage of life with three young kids and need quick and easy. We enjoy many of your recipes. I have learned some good tips from you over the years. For instance, I always volunteer to bring potatoes to family dinners so I can prep & soak them the day before and actually get it done. 😉 I love to make your puddings and our family favorite is your oven tacos. Thanks for all you’ve done to help me enjoy cooking!

    • Thank you. I really appreciate that. I love sharing quick and easy recipes that help make life easier, so I love hearing that you find those helpful. Oven tacos and homemade pudding are some of the most popular recipes on my site, so you are not alone in enjoying those! Thanks so much for taking the time to read my site and follow along on my adventures.

    I’ve been a reader for close to 10 years. Maybe 7-8! Time definitely does fly. I do enjoy your simple, everyday recipes.

    • Thank you! I remember you from the early years because you are have left many comments over the years. Thanks for following along all these years.

  3. When our son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2009, your blog was one of the first ones I came across in my research. You made me feel as though I could actually be successful in feeding my family gluten free, and I have used many of your recipes over the years. Your baked oatmeal recipes are favorites in our house, and I have been making baked oatmeal muffins and freezing them for my son to have at college for the last four years. I have also tried many of the products you recommend and found favorites I use to this day. I enjoy following your adventures and am very appreciative you put yourself out there so I could access information to help me in our journey to gluten free. Thank you so much, Lynn!

  4. We love your baked oatmeal recipes. I need to make up a batch of pumpkin oatmeal tonight, my sons have been asking for it. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m not sure how long I have followed but it has been a while, seems the pics are familiar! Congratulations on 10 YRs! Thank you for sharing your life with us and your recipes. I loved that you kept it all real and simple no matter what you were sharing. Takes a humble and giving spirit to do what you do. God bless you as you continue on for however long the Lord would allow.
    Some of my first recipes were the baked oatmeal and the puddings. The menu plans were helpful as well.

  6. Congratulations on 10 years! I’m another one who has been around almost that long. I long for the older days of blogging, too, as a reader. I far enjoyed those days more than the current blogging world.

    Your taco sauce recipe is the only one my son will eat. We’ve tried a few plus store rands but he skips all of them.

    I have been following you for a long time, and if I go back in my recipe book to the printouts I have from you in the past, I could get an exact date, but I would guess at least 8 years!
    My Kids are very close in age to yours, and I have loved raising them “alongside” yours and hearing about them growing up.
    Thank you for all you do for us out here in cyberland, and please keep up the blog even if all of our kids are all going, going, gone, we still need to feed out Hubbys! Hey, do I see a new blog idea for your future!?

    • Thank you so much! I love hearing from long time readers like you. Your comment made my day. One of the main reasons I love blogging is the “friends” I have made. We don’t know each other and yet we do. Have a great day!
