Welcome 2013!


Thanks so much to all of y'all - those who have just found my little corner of the web and those who have been here from the beginning. I enjoy hearing from you in the comments here and the emails you send to me.

When I started this site, I could count the southern recipe blogs on one hand. Today there are hundreds of us, from home cooks like me, some quite ambitious to win you over from the rest, to magazine, television, celebrity and corporate websites, and personal blogs authored by professionally trained chefs.

I am grateful and humbled that you choose Deep South Dish as one of your many sources when looking for southern recipes and I look forward to sharing even more recipes in this brand new year.

LOVE & HUGS,
   ~Mary

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

~Attributed to St. Francis of Assisi

  6. I just want to thank you for the time you put into this blog. I confess I read your blog posts and bookmark so many of your recipes but don't take the time to comment. You are a bright spot in my day and I look forward to seeing a number by your blog name to tell me "a new entry"! Thanks again and may you and your family have a very blessed new year!

    1. That's exactly how I want folks to feel when they visit - thank you so much and many blessings in the New Year (and hopefully not too much snow!) I have been to Sheboygan if you can believe that. Very nice town & very friendly people but I'm always happy to be back home when I get back to the South!

  13. Hey Mary, happy new year! I got here looking for my dear Granny's recipe for miniature sour cream biscuits and I see your recipe is just about exactly the same as hers. I wonder if you have a moment could you tell me where your recipe came from? I would just be interested in learning maybe how she came by her recipe nice they are alike. My dear Granny; every time I eat from her recipes it is as though she is with us again.

    1. I meant to write "since" they are alike, not "nice" they are alike! Oops.

    2. Hi BK! I think you mean the butter bombs? It's just one of those non-recipe recipes that's been around forever & is easy to remember - 1 stick butter, 1 cup sour cream, 2 cups SR flour. Have no idea where I first learned it but it's been years ago!

    3. Hey thanks! Well, it sure is good! Must be another non-recipe recipe then ... Just like cornbread is
