I'm headed to Lake Burton this weekend for little bit of fun and sun before I start my new jobs next week (and yes, that's plural. I'm about to be a very busy girl.) I'll fill you in on all the juicy details a little later, but let's just say I'll be working for two very fabulous ladies in the Atlanta food scene, doing very different things. It's been slow to the starting gate since my move back South, but I have a feeling things are on the up and up for Dixie Caviar.
So until the dust settles, here's a shout out to one of my favorite Southern specialty foods, Sister Schubert's Homemade Rolls. My sister Tinsley actually went to boarding school with Sister's daughter, so I've known about these heavenly yeast rolls since it was just a small start up. Needless to say, words cannot describe how tasty these little morsels are. They are a Dozier family holiday staple.
I'm planning on serving a package of her sausage rolls (my personal favorite) alongside my cast iron skillet coffee cake at the lake this weekend. With some sliced Elberta peaches and big pot of café au lait, it should be a breakfast to remember.
PS - I recently met Sister at the Atlanta Gift Mart, and purchased her new cookbook Cast Your Bread Upon the Waters. It features a recipe for "Everlasting Yeast Rolls" -- do you think they'll be as good as the ones you buy in the store? I'll keep you posted.
