Aunt Vel's Southern Fried Corn!

Fried corn is just about as southern as you can get and when the corn is fresh and it's done right it's delicious. In the summer, we usually serve it with vine ripe sliced tomatoes and whatever other fresh vegetables we have at the time. I think it's best when you use fresh cut right off the cob corn, but you can also use corn that you have put up or frozen (or canned) yourself. We all cook corn this way, but the person in our family that is known for her fried corn is my Aunt Vel. You know…

Aunt Vel's Sour Cream Corn Bread!

As I have mentioned before, my mother comes from a family of 11 children and 6 of them are girls. Fortunately, we still have all six of them with us. All of my aunts are really good southern cooks and they all like to feed people. They celebrate their birthdays by hosting a big potluck lunch in the month of those having birthdays. There is a enough food at these lunches to feed an army. The next time they have one, I will take pictures and post them. You won't believe the amount of food…

Southern Hushpuppies!

No fish fry in the South is complete without homemade hushpuppies. You just have to have them. There are several stories or theories about where the hushpuppy came from and got it's name. One that makes sense is that when folks would be frying fish in a big old pot outside over a fire, the dogs would sit and beg and whine for a bite, so they would drop some of the batter and fry it and then feed it to the dogs and say 'now hush puppy'. I guess they soon discovered that the dropped and fried…

Country Swiss Steak!

This is a recipe I always get asked about a lot. It seems so many grew up eating it, but not many make it anymore. It has always been one of my favorites. I am fairly sure it has nothing to do with Switzerland or the Swiss. I doubt they even know what this is all about. I am not sure where the name came from, like so many of our recipes that seem sort of out of place here in the South that are nonetheless delicious. I do know that this takes a fairly inexpensive and usually less tender cut…

I have seen a lot of copycat recipes for the fried apples they have at Cracker Barrel, but my mother's recipe to me is the closest it c. Fruit Recipes, Apple Recipes, Vegetable Recipes, Cooking Recipes, Recipies, Apple Desserts, Fall Desserts, Cracker Barrel Fried Apples, Glazed Pork Chops

Fried Apples...Cracker Barrel Style!

I have seen a lot of copycat recipes for the fried apples they have at Cracker Barrel, but my mother's recipe to me is the closest it comes to those apples. I actually think hers are even better though. They are also not hard to make at all. Wash about 6 or 7 apples that are good for cooking. These are Gala's. Don't peel them, just core and dice them in a fairly large dice. Place a 1/2 stick of butter in a skillet that can be covered. Put your heat on medium. Place apples in the skillet and…

Four Cheese Barbecued Chicken Pasta!

I really love barbecue and the taste of barbecue sauce. I have rarely met a barbecued 'anything' I didn't like. Of course, some barbecue is far superior to others and I do prefer my homemade barbecue sauce to the store bought, but I use the store bought sometimes also. I had some chicken breasts and I had some barbecue sauce and a taste for pasta of some kind, so I decided to try a barbecue chicken pasta dish. The results turned out better than I expected and even the pickiest of eaters…

Chili Cheese Frito Corn Salad!

This salad might sound a little strange as far as the combination of ingredients, but it is actually delicious. My mother first ate this salad at a church potluck dinner. She didn't think to ask the person who brought it for the recipe, but when you look up Frito Corn salad, several recipes come up. I think the best of them is the one Paula Deen has on the Foodtv.com site, so I used it with a few modifications. I saw this again on Pinterest lately and I remembered that I had just bought a…

7-Up Cake!

If you aren't familiar with the 7-Up Cake, it's just one of the best pound cakes ever that is made with...yes, you guessed right...7-Up. It's the same principle as the Coca Cola Cake, in that the carbonation in the soda is what makes the cake rise, but other than that, the two cakes are totally different. The 7-Up Cake is a lightly lemon flavored pound cake. Some folks leave the icing off and serve it just plain or with some fruit. That's ok I guess, but I love it with the icing. That's just…

Chicken and Dumplings...True Southern Comfort!

Chicken and dumplings, like so many of the southern classics, was more than likely born out of the need to stretch a meal to feed a lot of people. Killing a chicken for dinner was not something you did every day years ago on the farm when those chickens laid eggs, eggs that could be sold or traded for other staples you needed, but didn't produce yourself...like coffee and flour or sugar. So if you sacrificed a chicken it was a big deal and you probably only gave up one. One chicken was more…

Country Fried Steak with Gravy!

This is a recipe I get asked a lot about, but for some reason I am just now getting around to posting it. It might be because we actually don't eat this all that often. It is good and it is comfort food, but contrary to popular belief, we don't eat that much 'fried food' in southern cooking or I should say we don't in our family. It's sort of a special treat kind of meal, because obviously, if you ate this too often it could be a little much. However, when you get a craving for it, it can't…

Southern Cornbread Dressing!

Thanksgiving just wouldn't be Thanksgiving proper without the cornbread dressing. It's almost, if not, the most important part of the meal at our house. If you have turkey, you have to have dressing with it. Nothing else will do. Of course, you also have to have mashed potatoes and gravy. It just all has to be there, together in unison, on the plate. This might not be true for all of you and your Thanksgiving dinners, but it is for us. As far back as I can remember, the night before…

Layered Pea Salad...a Southern Favorite!

This is a salad that has been around a long time. I am not sure when people began making it, but it was probably in the 1970's or earlier? Some call it 7 layer salad, some layered pea salad and some just call it pea salad, which is what we have always called it. It's an interesting mixture of ingredients that you layer in a pretty bowl or trifle dish and then 'ice' with mayonnaise and sugar. Yeah, I know, only in the south. But if you are not from the south or haven't ever had this pea…
