I first shared my recipe for Simple Olive Oil Drop Biscuits in 2011. Looking back, I realized the photos in that original post weren't the best quality... But, at the time, I thought they looked pretty good. 

Somehow, over the years, these drop biscuits have become one of the most popular recipes on my blog... Despite those photos.

Did people feel sorry for me when they read about how sick I was when I created these biscuits? It's possible. 

But I doubt that concern inspired folks to keep coming back to it. 😉
