Authentic Southern Recipes
Most of our recipes came from my mom who treasured traditional Southern food made from scratch. Many of the recipes are very old, most are easy and all are delicious. If you are looking for Cajun or Soul Food recipes, we have those too. So, enjoy our Southern recipes, bookmark this page and come back often.
If you are having a Superbowl party you can buy pizza and a few prepared salads or...make your own yummy party dishes. Recipes for deviled eggs, BBQ ribs, pecan pie, spicy hot wings, avocado dip and more, all on one page.

First Time At A Southern Dinner Table?
"Southern Hospitality" is not just a phrase..it's a way of life in the South.
Good table manners are valued by Southern families. Be sure to compliment your host on their food. Should you ask for a second serving of any item, it will please your host.
Southerners admire one's appreciation of food and a healthy appetite. Feel free to ask for the recipe of an item you especially liked.
Be polite, friendly and enjoy the wonders of Southern cooking.
Then look forward to future invitations.

Do not store spices in a cabinet above the stove. Heat and humidity will cause them to lose their flavor. Store your spices in a cool, dark place to preserve their potency.
