Boneless Prime Rib Beef Roast with au Jus

A boneless prime rib roast made with a rub of olive oil, herbs, spices and seasonings and served with an au jus. Offer an optional sour cream horseradish sauce at the table.

Boneless Prime Rib Beef Roast with au Jus

Most people are terrified of cooking a prime rib roast at home and for good reason. It is a very expensive cut of meat if you mess up! But, it's also a delicious cut of meat, so it's worth the effort, and, if you follow these four essential rules, you'll have a perfect, and impressive, holiday roast.

Punch Bowl Strawberry Angel Cake

Punch Bowl Strawberry Angel Cake

Punch Bowl Strawberry Angel Cake

Punch bowls have a long history in the South and this dessert is a perfect one to ring in spring. Back in the day before hiring a caterer was the norm, families provided all of the food and labor for big parties and family events, and every family had a treasured punch bowl, almost always one that had been passed down a few times.

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole with a filling made of pre-cooked chicken, cream soup and chicken broth, canned veggies and a few herbs and seasonings.

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

Those of y'all who've been around here awhile know that I love my homemade, from scratch two-crust, chicken pot pie. It's classic, the way a pot pie should be, and it quickly became both a fan and family favorite. This batter topped recipe is just a tad bit quicker version for when time is running short.

The topping bakes up like a biscuit, the filling is made with already cooked chicken that you've hopefully put up, cream soup and chicken broth, canned or frozen veggies and a few herbs and seasonings. It's a quicker, but delicious, alternative for those lazy busy days like the ones I'm having lately!

Well, it's an exciting time here around Deep South Dish headquarters, because the debut of the official Deep South Dish Homestyle Southern Recipes cookbook on one of my all time favorite shows, QVC's In the Kitchen with David is coming up!


We were originally scheduled to launch on Sunday, March 15th, but as things go, we got rescheduled tentatively to April 19th. It's still going to be an exclusive opportunity to get an early copy of the cookbook, well before it hits the bookstores and online so be sure to save the new date! Of course I am so very happy to be bringing y'all the cookbook so many of you have been asking me to do for years - that's a given - but I'm also pretty stoked about meeting David in person too, to be honest. He makes me laugh every Wednesday and Sunday and he's pretty much outfitted my kitchen with everything from pots and pans to bakeware, gadgets and small appliances, plus he's filled up the freezer a time or two (do I hear Perfect Gourmet potstickers anyone? French crossiants? Corkies?)

Pressure Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup, Cookbook Debut and the Death of a Beloved Pet

Homemade chicken noodle soup, made from a whole chicken in an electronic pressure cooker.

Pressure Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

If you've been a friend of this blog for any amount of time, you already know that I love my food cooked the old-fashioned way - in the oven or on the top of the stove, low and slow. It's part of the whole process that birthed this recipe website to begin with - connecting to my Mama and Grandma through cooking, after Hurricane Katrina changed my entire career path overnight. There's just something magical that happens with that low and slow process that makes you understand the whole emotional connection to our past while cooking for someone in the present, and how it literally explodes the flavor in a dish that just doesn't happen any other way.

Sausage, Peppers and Onions with Beans

A quick skillet meal of sausage with peppers and onions, tomatoes, barbecue sauce, and beans.

Sausage, Peppers and Onions with Beans

I love this quick take on classic sausage and peppers with onions, adding in beans, making it much more filling and satisfying. It's kinda like if you took beanie weenies and sausage and peppers and married them.

I've used Italian sausage here, but you can use any kind of Italian-style sausage like chicken or turkey, or even a good andouille sausage, and I've also used those gourmet hot dogs that come with the steak packages you get as a gift at Christmas.

Nutritional Factoid: Did you know that while most canned beans are very high in sodium, draining and rinsing them gets rid of nearly half of the sodium level? And, just so you know, it also helps to reduce some of those gas-causing sugars too.

UPDATE SAVE THE DATE! The Deep South Dish Cookbook is Almost Here!


I am so excited to share with y'all that my cookbook, Deep South Dish Homestyle Southern Recipes, is just about here! Isn't the cover pretty? For those of you wondering "where's the beef?" it's representative of one of our favorite Southern dishes - the vegetable plate - and is actually one of my personal photos and all of my personal recipes! The publisher thought that it was a perfect cover for a spring launch and so do I. Don't worry though - there's plenty of meat protein dishes inside and a few of them are even featured on the back cover too! (Fried chicken anyone?)

Never in a million years when I lost my job - and frankly my entire career - to a hurricane named Katrina, did I have any idea that I would find myself where I am today ... and now a published cookbook author too. No matter how down and out things seems folks, never give up. He might just have bigger plans for you too.

Cherry Berries in a Cloud

Cherry Berries in a Cloud, a vintage dessert that begins with a baked meringue shell, is topped with a cream cheese, whipped cream and marshmallow layer and finished with a cherry and strawberry pie filling.

Cherry Berries in a Cloud

I had all but forgotten about this vintage dessert until my daughter-in-law's grandmother Mimi showed up with a pan of it at one of our holiday gatherings. Not only is it delicious as it always was, but it's a perfect dessert for Valentine's Day too!

From my 70s Betty Crocker cookbook, one of my first cookbooks as a new bride!
