Fried Green Tomatoes…the recipe!

Sundays at my grandparents’ house was always a full Southern Sunday Supper! Chicken, collard greens, fried green tomatoes, black eyed peas and corn bread…Oh and peach cobbler! All homemade and Granny was in the kitchen all day getting ready for us 4 “monsters” to arrive…4 girls! Monsters? Never! Climbing the walnut tree in the back yard or picking radishes from the garden we could smell the goodness coming out the windows by the…

Black-Eyed Peas. Soul Food…A Way of Life

I grew up on soul food. I can close my eyes and the aromas take me back instantly! Every Sunday at home or at my grandparents’, black-eyed peas would be slowly simmering on the stove. In the south, eating black eyed peas on New Year’s Day is said to bring good luck.

Let’s face it, when seeing the minimal ingredients of warm egg yolks, butter and lemon juice, you’re probably thinking “how can this be good?” Well friends, it definitely…

Terrific Goat Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes

Here you go…another “comfort food” recipe; my favorite kind of food to make and eat! Twice Baked Potatoes are a dish most everyone has had at one time or another. The difference between one recipe and another is the filling. The skin of the potato is the container with a filling of just about anything you want to include. Most of us have enjoyed a filling of creamy mashed potatoes with cheddar cheese and bacon. With some creativity, there…
