    Peachy326's Note:

    DELICIOUS! This was given to me by an online buddy when I was still engaged to my Southern husband. They have always pleased him. I have always liked it because it calls for all-purpose flour. Beinging a Northerner. I'm not good with self rising. GRITS (Girls Raised In The South & GRINS (Girls Raised In Northern States) forever!!!!
