It’s Better Late than Never

Sweet Potato Biscuits

When pictures of these rich sweet potato biscuits were first posted to my social media sites, the response was overwhelmingly positive. Fans were promised the story and recipe would publish in a few days. I’m now writing this in the last days of December in the super early hours of the morning because of a sleepless night. One wonders just how crazy I was to make a promise during the week of Thanksgiving holiday and during the launch of this year’s .

Sweet Potato Biscuits is a group of food bloggers, chefs and other creative-thinking writers sharing food stories and recipes about Kwanzaa. It was launched last year, and it only publishes stories in December. In addition to balancing, working a full-time job, helping a boyfriend with his personal project (now pushed back to January 2013), and maintaining my household (Kudos to people with kids), please forgive me for failing to publish these Sweet Potato Biscuits as promised during the week of Thanksgiving.

Here’s to the recipe that made people excited in my social media circles. Like most ‘hot’ online stories, the excitement caused when people first saw the pictures of this recipe has since quieted down. Right now everyone is enjoying their holiday and the memory of seeing pictures of sweet potato biscuits are long lost. Perhaps this late story will freshen their memory. Remember… good food comes to those who wait. Perhaps, it’s better these delicious Sweet Potato Biscuits are served with a New Year’s Day meal.
