I have been meaning to review this cookbook for weeks now, and can not seem to either get it out of the kitchen long enough to review, or find it – because someone else is always baking from it! This is fabulous…
“Sweet Mornings” By: Patty Pinner”
I am going to start out saying that I am recommending this book to everyone! It is a fabulous book with genius recipes, fabulous family memories, sweet and savory breakfast items – that can also be made into dessert items – and georgeous full colored photographs. And can we talk about Patty Pinner for me a minute!? I just love her! She is the author of, perhaps, one of my all time favorite cookbooks, “Sweets: Soul Food Desserts and Memories” – which is often mimicked, but never duplicated. That cookbook, has really stood the test of time.
This book is filled with dozens and dozens of recipes, most of which either myself or my Grandma has tried – and loved! My favorite recipe, though, has to be the “Orange Sweet Rolls” (page 162). I can not tell you how many times I’ve made these! They are perfect for breakfast, bunch, dessert or snack! They remind me of some orange rolls that my Grandma Barbra used to make when I was younger. By far the first recipe you should try when grabbing this book!
The book is sectioned off into two main categories – Sweet Beginnings and Morning Savories.
Some of the delicious recipes that fill the book are, “Cherry-Filled Coffee Cake” (page 18), “Cousin Vercie’s Snickerdoodle Scones” (page 20), “Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding Squares” (page 34), “Chocolate-Macadamia Waffles” (page 47), “Mama’s Strawberry Coffee Cake” (page 61), “Orange-Filled Crescents” (page 73), “Lemon-Coconut Bread” (page 88), “Southern Tea Cakes” (page 105), “Banana Streusel Coffee Cake” (page 122), “Cowboy Coffee Cake” (page 144), “Blueberry-Cornmeal Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping” (page 160), “Hot Cooked Apples” (page 174), “Blackberry Buckle” (page 182), “Sweet Potato Scones” (page 196), “Apple-Cinnamon Bear Claws” (page 203), “Sunday-Best Sausage Bread Pudding” (page 228), “Fried Green Tomatoes” (page 234), “Daddy’s Griddlecakes” (page 238), “Old-Timey Brunch Chicken Salad” (page 252) and “Miss Ruby’s Table-Talk White Bread”(page 256) – just to name a few!
I highly recommend you check this book out – as well as Patty’s other titles.
