Jill Conner Browne, New York Times bestselling author and Boss Queen, tours and speaks full-time about all things Queenly.
I am not a Sweet Potato Queen wonna be, maybe a little. I am a Jill Conner Browne wonna be. She is so funny and so talented. So she is a little racy at times. She is not saying anything that all of us have not thought at some time or another, just didn't have the balls to say or write.
Have you ever had a bad day or just felt depressed, stupid question? Don't reach for that bottle of anti-depression pills or box of wine, course a little wine never hurt anybody. Pick up a copy of one of Jill's books. If you don't own one, may I suggest that you start with The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love. I will bet you money that within 3 months you will own them all. You will be laughing so hard you will have to stop reading. Jill's books are my favorite pick-me-upper. These books are not the ones to grab and jump in bed expecting to be lulled to sleep.
In case you have been living in a cave for the past several years and don't know who The Sweet Potato Queens are, this is their official website. Their festivities this year are from March 18-21, and always in Jackson, Mississippi. Their Sweet Potato Queens Parade is always the 3rd Saturday in March. For the next few days I'll be giving you fabulous recipes from some of the Sweet Potato Queens various books. Of course I'm only sharing the ones I've actually tried. I promise we will run out of time before I run out of recipes.
See you guys later today with my first in a series of Sweet Potato Queens Recipes.
