Someone asked me this week what my go-to comfort food is, and I feel like if I sat down to run through a list of all of the wonderful foods that make me happy, I might come up with a list including: baked pasta, divine cheese fries, my Mom’s summer fruit cobbler, or the strawberry ice cream I make with my Granddaddy. But you know the first thing that immediately popped into my head?…Grits! Now, obviously this post isn’t about a big bowl of delicious grits that I made, but I want to make sure that they get a good plug from me. Grits are hot, salty, and luxuriously creamy – I just love them. It must be the Southern roots in my family, and the fact that I grew up with them. So there are three take-aways from this:
- Grits are delicious.
- If you’ve never had grits, you need to try some stat (preferably from a good southern restaurant or a fabulous church lady).
- They really make me think of my childhood.
And that’s what brings us to these lovely treats you see here!
