Absolutely the best pecan pie ever! What's more Southern than pecan pie? How about one that only takes 5 minutes to prepare?! Pecan pie even a New Yorker can enjoy...
A wonderful New Orleans-style soup that is a best seller at my family-owned restaurant. Serve with crackers. I like to season my shrimp with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, 1 tablespoon of Season All(R), and 2 teaspoons of hot sauce (optional).
My all-time favorite recipe, which my Dad makes every year on New Years Day for the college Bowl games. I prefer the ham hocks, but you can substitute a ham bone for them. To slice the sausage easier, put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes first. The longer you cook it the creamier the beans get; I love to let it simmer all day, the smell is wonderful. Serve with hot rice.
A refreshing, tangy coleslaw. This is my best attempt at recreating a popular local restaurant's recipe.
Black-eyed peas bring a Southern flair to a Latin favorite.
Eat just like the cowboys on the old range. Bust out a cast-iron skillet and make yourself this spicy cornbread. Then listen for the howl of the wolf and the lowing of the cattle.
This dish has a long history, from the Acadians (who became the Cajuns) and then eventually to the U.S. Army. Adapted from the 1910 Manual for Army Cooks.
A very easy recipe for coleslaw; you just throw these ingredients in a pot and cook them up. Chill and serve at your next cookout. Adapted from the 1910 Manual for Army Cooks.
Pulled pork in the slow cooker with an easy barbecue sauce.
Craving fall-off-the-bone pork? If you also love spice, this is the easy slow cooker recipe for you, friend.
Boston is famous for their Baked Beans and though they are good they hardly stand up to my hug-worthy Bama Baked Beans. These beans will make a ridiculous side dish for your next BBQ or pool party but they are hearty (and meaty) enough to stand alone as an entree. They feature crispy bacon lardons, ground beef and strips of bacon as garnish. You know if bacon is used as a garnish it’s gotta be good.
So easy, so little prep, and so, so delicious. You can literally make this in your sleep! (Well, almost literally.) The perfect recipe for an all-day sports-watching gathering, like March Madness.
Pants, then shoes, is one important order to remember. The other is the proper way to assemble Frito Pie. See below to make sure you're not doing it wrong.
Fall-off-the-bone Garlic Teriyaki Wings with a hint of heat - awesome!! Less cooking time after dipping makes wings saucier.
These wings are coated in corn flake crumbs, oven fried, and drizzled with spicy honey. They are hot, crispy and addicting...best of all, not fried.
My dad always said the right tool makes the job go easier. In this case we will make use of an apple corer and a red brick to make the perfect popper. Please don't waste your money on one of those expensive popper holders!
No self respecting Man should be without a proper cheese dip. And...no I ain't talking about that "slime" that you buy at "Wally World". In less than 30 minutes you can be feasting on the real deal. Now where did I put those chips...
This macaroni & cheese is one of the cheesiest delights you will ever taste! Be the talk of the month when you bring this to your family's function. It will be a smash hit!
Classic and easy potato salad for picnics, a good side dish for barbeques, or just to eat any time. This was my mother-in-law's recipe, which I loved from the beginning.
An easy seafood and potato recipe that can feed a little or a lot.
