It doesn’t get more Southern than this! Here is the final recipe I’ll be posting (for now) from Martha’s book, Screen Doors and Sweet Tea. I hope you’ve enjoyed her recipes as much as I have. I have had so much fun working with new ingredients and flavors! and I’m thrilled to read that many of you will be trying them as well! I definitely think this book is a must buy, seeing there are tons of more recipes that look absolutely delightful!
Here is a recap of the recipes I’ve tried and shared with you this past week:
This recipe is perfect for when you have left over sweet potatoes! I whipped these up while I was cooking dinner the other night and they came together so fast. They are made with ingredients you most likely already have in your pantry so there is no excuse not to try them! I can’t wait to eat them for breakfast tomorrow morning, topped with wilted spinach and a poached egg! Martha suggests to enjoy them with your favorite jelly or jam. I think they would also be great with some cinnamon and sugar flavored butter!
