Life has always been sweet on Georgia’s Peach Cove Island, but a case of murder has Marygene Brown down in the pits . . .
For generations, the women of the Brown family on Peach Cove Island have been known for their Southern sass and sweet homemade desserts at their beloved Peach Diner. Since their mother’s passing two years ago, Marygene has been stuck in Atlanta while her sister Jena Lynn has been running the family business. Now Marygene has left her husband and returned to her hometown, where she can almost feel Mama’s presence.
But all is not peachy back home. Marygene has barely tied on an apron when a diner regular drops dead at the counter. When it turns out the old man’s been poisoned, Jena Lynn is led away in handcuffs and the family eatery is closed. Now, to save her sister and the diner, Marygene must find the real killer. With some startling assistance from her Mama’s spirit, Marygene will be serving up a special order of just desserts . . .
Includes Seven Recipes from Marygene’s Kitchen!
The Peach Diner Potato Waffles
When Marygene is feeling down, a potato waffle is one of her go-to comfort foods.
2 pounds yellow or red potatoes, shredded and squeezed dry 3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus extra for garnish
¼ cup diced onion
¼ tsp garlic powder
1½ teaspoons Himalayan salt or sea salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon thyme
2 eggs, lightly beaten
½ pound cooked and chopped bacon
¼ cup chopped chives for garnish
Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray, if required.
Toss the potatoes with butter, onions, salt, pepper, and thyme in a bowl until evenly coated. Stir eggs into the potato mixture.
Spoon some potato mixture onto the preheated waffle iron; cook until the potatoes are tender and golden brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture.
Garnish with crispy bacon, chives or parsley, and extra cheese.
