Southern style Cornbread Dressing has always been the go to side dish to add on the menu for almost every holiday in my household – especially Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter..  My grandmother’s dressing has always been my favorite.  Although I can never get it as perfect as she would, I wanted to share with you all how I always fix mine.  It’s tasty, easy to make and packed with flavor!

It all starts with making dry cornbread.  I usually follow the instructions on the side of a container for yellow cornmeal, but you can find it with an easy web search online as well.  Once you’ve got that made, check back here for the rest of the recipe.  Avoid the sweet cornbread like a box of Jiffy mix, it just won’t work.  

Check out the details on how to make this delicious side dish for holiday dinners, below. View Post

Do ya wanna know what’t the best southern snack in the world?  Well, at least according to me??

Fried Green Tomatoes!

I just love eating them, especially first thing out of the skillet.  They are just soooo good, and very simple to make.  Add a little of Frank’s red hot to the mix, and these are banging!

With just a handful of ingredients – corn meal, eggs, salt, garlic powder and pepper, canola oil, and of course your fresh green tomatoes, you too can enjoy this super easy and quick side dish / snack / meal.  I don’t know who ever came up with this fabulous idea way back when but, I thank them for it!! 😉 View Post

While grabbing a few things from the grocery store earlier today, I ran across some fingerling potatoes on clearance for just 99 cents at a local Kroger.  Now, these potatoes I have never tried before, but when I see a deal – especially on food – I usually go for it.  When I got home I immediately went online for a way to prepare them.

After searching through Google, Foodnetwork and Pinterest, nothing caught my eye other than a unique way that you can slice them.  Many recipes called for just cutting them in half length wise, but there was also another way to slice them so that they would look something similar to corkscrew fries.  It just looked pretty to me, so I made note of it.
