|Classic peas and pasta salad, made with tiny shell pasta and dressed with homemade buttermilk Ranch, spicy mustard, dill, red onion, cubed cheese, bacon and gently tossed with tuna fillets.|
Peas and Pasta Salad with TunaOkay y'all. I know everybody's in fall mode, sharing their favorite apple recipes, and pumpkin recipes won't be far behind - if they haven't started up already. Heck, we're only in the high 80s this week here in South Mississippi, so that's practically fall weather here, far as we are concerned. But... I'm gonna squeeze in at least one more "summer" recipe before the calendar tells me it's officially fall.

|Iced Refrigerator Cucumber Salad - a tart and crisp cucumber salad.|
Iced Refrigerator Cucumber SaladI'm not quite ready to let go of the summer and start up with fall recipes. Oh, I'm definitely ready to bid summer goodbye alright. To walk outside and feel that fresh, crisp fall air, the kind that sends a quick chill down your spine and requires at least a light sweater. I'm ready to turn off the air conditioner and get some relief from those high summer cooling bills. Maybe even open the windows and let fresh air flow through the house and put on a pot of hearty soup or chili. That's sure to be awhile yet here in The Deep South.

|Top Recipes Roundup from Deep South Dish|
Y'all liked the Labor Day Roundup of Dips, Burgers, Ribs, Sides & More post so much last Friday, and in fact, it was one of the top posts for the week, that I decided to gather up some of the other favorite recipes that were most popular on Deep South Dish in the past week.

Fresh Fruit Salad with Lime and Mint DressingOkay. I'm a gonna say it again. It is HOT y'all. Whew!
Magazines are arriving all decked out in the unmistakable colors of fall, loaded with fall baking recipes, chilis, soups and stews, and apple recipes are everywhere, even already with many bloggers. A Florida Sam's Club even has Christmas decorations out now. Yes. In August. I'm serious y'all!
And, while I'm so ready for some fall weather to show up myself, with the heat of 100+ feels like temps slapping us in the face everytime we walk out of the door here, well fall, I'm just not that into you. For the Deep South, fall won't come along for awhile yet and summer, like an unwelcome guest who stays just a little bit too long, is often still here far past the fall introduction anyway, so bring on the icebox desserts, frozen treats, summer cocktails and quick meals I say!

Broccoli and Cauliflower Refrigerator SaladWhew! It is hotter than hot here in the Deep South y'all. I'm still cooking... of course, we gotta eat no matter the heat, right? And yes, like most Southerners, I really don't have a season for the occasional treat of any of our Southern Classic recipes, even during the heat of the summer, though I do tend to lean more toward simple food on the outside grill, sandwiches and a lot of veggies and salads - in case you hadn't noticed from my summer postings this year.

Cold Corn DipFootball season has arrived! Well, it's really only preseason, but don't tell The Cajun that. It doesn't matter one way or the other, because to him, football is football and our television has been blaring the NFL Network for days now.

|A summertime Southern favorite, fresh speckled butter beans are stewed down with a ham hock enhanced broth.|
Southern Style Speckled Butter BeansSomewhere in the dark recesses of my deep freeze, I have some ham hocks. But... The Cajun handled the transportation of our freezer from the old house to the new, along with the contents of it, all scattered about in massive coolers, and frankly, I just crammed it all back in there with no manner of organization once it arrived.
Needless to say, I now can't find a thing.

|Chicken thighs, simply seasoned and slow cooked in the crockpot with a mixture of pineapple juice, brown sugar and soy sauce, that is thickened and brushed on as a finishing glaze.|
Slow Cooker Brown Sugar ChickenIt's become pretty clear that folks love the combination of savory meats with sweet brown sugar. I've used it to candy bacon, love it for ham, for rubs on ribs and steaks, it's amazing with chicken and I've even used it for fish. Here lately, I've been seeing brown sugar everywhere in these 2, 3 and 4 ingredient dishes you see pass via Facebook and Pinterest.
