In the south Thanksgiving just isn’t the same without sweet potato pie. Serve with whipped cream or some butter pecan ice cream. Or maybe both!
Although I don’t eat at Taco Bell much, the Enchirito had to be my favorite menu item. Unfortunately, in my area anyway, the Enchirito has disappeared from Taco Bell menus and most of the restaurants don’t make it anymore. Fear not. I have a simple copycat […]
Fried chicken is a staple of the southern cooks’ repertoire and you have to have a good recipe to be a southern cook. Sunday afternoon meals, church potlucks, picnics and on and on I could go. I’m sure there are more fried chicken recipes out there than […]

Well, it’s about that time of year to start thinking about cold weather comfort food. My two favorites are Chili and Gumbo although I eat them both year around.
Carne Guisada is a Tex-Mex favorite of mine for sure. I think you will find this Carne Guisada recipe about as simple as they come. One of the things I probably miss the most about not living in Texas is not being able to just jump […]

Mashed potatoes, a foundational comfort food. Just think of all the things you can do with a potato. You can bake it, fry it, roast it or boil it. You can make french fries, hash browns (diced or shredded), potato pancakes, scalloped potatoes and on […]
I’ve always wondered why anyone would want to eat a green tomato. They’re almost as hard as a rock and they don’t taste good. I would think that fried green tomatoes wouldn’t taste any better than fried shoe soles. However, there is something magical about […]
