I'm back from the beach and it was definitely a much needed mini vacation! We love going to Chincoteague Island because it is just so laid back. Nice little sleepy town with some really nice shops and a movie theatre that is reminiscent of the 1970's. Not a multiplex. We saw New Moon there and boy was that good. I think I've mentioned that I'm a Twilight fan. Very good movie! My husband and I have been seriously thinking of some day moving to the Island. I grew up on Long Island, NY so I would love to be near the water again. I've never gotten used to living far from the ocean and even though where we live now is several hours away, that is too far for me.
Anyhow, this dish was another husband request and it was really good. Of course, it's from Paula Deen! He just loves her recipes! This one is another winner. Simple, delicious, fattening but there is some fruit in this so maybe it's not all bad! I would recommend trying it. I never made any type of fritter before and it's so easy!
