I may not be from the south, but I love a good biscuit! Every time I see a biscuit on a menu, I just have to order it. There is something about biscuits that are so comforting and delicious.

There are so many recipes and methods for making biscuits. It is amazing that a food that seems so simple could actually be so complex. I have made many varieties of biscuits, but I think that this recipe for cream cheese biscuits might be my new favorite.

Well, it still is the best because he still cooks breakfast any time I am home in St. Louis. Tons of bacon. Fresh squeezed orange juice. Fried eggs if you want them (cooked in bacon fat and served on rye toast. that is worthy of its own blog post). And of course, my favorite, pancakes.

I still crave pancakes pretty much every weekend. And while I will always love good old fashioned plain pancakes, I love trying out new varieties. Like these lemon ricotta pancakes.
