Jamie Dunkirk and Grace Cashel have a lot in common, not the least of which is their interest in food. Both women enjoy making things from scratch, using fresh, local ingredients.
While Jamie cooks for her daughters, Grace is not above tempting Cash, her grandson, to eat a better breakfast, since, as she knows:
“When her grandson chose his own breakfast, he was prone to either black coffee or the full Southern heart-attack-on-a-platter. She had seen him slather enough butter on his grits to lubricate the chassis of Rosslyn and Rosslyn’s entire fleet of pickups.”
One of Grace’s favorite “tricks” is one of the author’s too. I learned this recipe at The Mountain, a family camp and conference center in Highlands, NC many years ago. It’s still one of my family’s favorites.
