You all know I am all about simplifying meals and I just don't have time for kneading and rolling, but I love love love Southern-Style Sweet Buttermilk Biscuits.

Lately, I have really been craving the flavors and dishes I remember from my childhood. I guess that is a good indication that I am missing home. Well, at least my family and especially my mom.

I grew up in small town America, in southwest Florida in a little town untouched by reality. Sure, I had the typical family and life struggles, but it was kind of like growing up in Mayberry. I joked about it through my teens and twenties. Nonetheless, looking back I wouldn't change a thing.

Florida is a melting pot for the northeastern and the southern United States. There are so many culinary influences, but the ones that truly take me home are the recipes of the south that I remember from my childhood. My mother prepared a lot of Italian food as my dad is Italian and that is what he loved most.

But, when we spent time eating with our friends, we would get to enjoy their favorite dishes and that usually was the best the south had to offer. So, when I think of home, the flavors of the south beckon to me. Strawberry Shortcake was a favorite growing up!

I tried to recreate that magic with a store bought sponge cake for a long time; that was until I discovered the beauty of the Sweet Buttermilk Drop Biscuit. It is so simple that it brings this Southern favorite to your table in about 30 minutes!

I have created an amazing drop biscuit recipe to take the complicated out of this southern classic.It all starts with a super easy sweet buttermilk drop biscuit. There is no kneading or rolling here. It is a genius creation! You are going to love it.
