Deep South Dish Homestyle Southern Recipes Cookbook

Deep South Dish Homestyle Southern Recipes Cookbook
Just a quick reminder for those of y'all who have been after me for years to publish a cookbook you could hold in your hands... the day is finally here!

This Sunday, April 19th, between 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST, will be my on-air appearance with David Venable on "In the Kitchen with David" for the exclusive launch of Deep South Dish Homestyle Southern Recipes on QVC. You'll get your book ahead of everybody else!


I am so excited to finally be offering a cookbook representative of the website here, and while I couldn't get every single recipe from the blog in this first effort, there certainly will be plenty of your favorites, plus a few new and exclusive recipes that I think you'll enjoy too.

I believe that it's also a great mix of Southern recipes in general, as well as many of my Deep South favorites, primarily the ones I consider homestyle, as well as some of the more popular and most pinned ones that y'all love - the recipes that borrow a few pantry shortcut products that we all keep on hand.


I'm so very happy with the book and I hope that it's also all you wanted and expected. Thank you so much for your love and support over the years, and for encouraging me to step out of my box to become a published cookbook author!

Save the date...

  1. You must be over the moon about this accomplishment. I can just see David;s face, tasting your creations; he will be a most appreciative "taster" and I have a feeling you may just sell out! I know my mouth waters many times, looking at the pictures of your Southern cooking. Good luck with this endeavor!

  8. My husband and I always go out to breakfast and then do our shopping for the week on Sunday. I told him this past Sunday that I wanted to get an early start so we can be home by 12:00 to watch ITKWD and you!! I have been looking forward to this and don't want to miss it!!

    I feel like I know you, like you're a friend and I am so happy for you!! I'm wishing you the greatest success with this and, should you sell out before I get it ordered, I will buy it when it comes out in the stores!! I may even think about giving it as a Christmas gift to family. I MUST HAVE YOUR COOKBOOK!! You are my FAVORITE!!

    Have a safe trip and a great time with David! I hope he is as nice as he appears to be! Hoping to see a Happy Dance!!

    5. I know! Seemed like we were barely on before the books were gone! It was really awesome and scary and fun all at the same time. David is exactly what you think - I just adore him!! He really helped me be calm. Well, as calm as someone could be on live TV!!!

  11. I'm so excited for you....you've earned it. I've used your recipes for several years now & I've always appreciated all the time and trouble you go through to explain each one so that they're mistake proof. I found your blog several years ago while on a kick of trying to make the best sweet iced tea ever and knew I had found a blog that I'd be visiting over and over. Can't wait to watch your segment and order a book....I hope David is as fun as he appears to be! Kelley from Littleton, CO

  14. Mary, I'm so excited for you. I know that David will love everything he tastes & I can assure you that we will see some "Happy Dances" from him. I just know the cookbook will be a sellout when people see what is in it. Can't wait to get my copy.

  20. Hey Mary, you did it!! I'm so proud of you. You got TWO Happy Dances from David and your book was a sellout. I can't wait until I receive my cookbook. I don't buy many but I wanted a copy of yours because I've tried your recipes and they are delish! Many hugs and best wishes.

  21. Mary, I taped the show and I'm watching right now!! I'm so upset I was too late! I will be buying it when it's available! You are an inspiration, and so humble. I watch David 2 times a week and I can honestly say I've never seen him react to anything like he did your cooking! You go girl!!! Hope I can get my booked signed by you one day!! Dreams do come true. I'm so glad you didn't give up, and now look!! Wow!

  23. I set my DVR to record QVC and get a copy of your wonderful Deep South Dish cookbook. When I got home Sunday they were sold out and only available on Wait list! AAARGHHH! Is there any other way to order one? Thank you! Louise

    1. I was late also so I just pre-ordered from Amazon. I think the date is going to be May 1 but figured it would be that late on QVC waitlist. I did watch the video and you were wonderful, Mary! Got that happy dance right off the bat! :) Thanks for all you do!

    2. Absolutely Louise & Jackie! If you want it to be on your QVC account, you can still order on the waitlist. Those orders will be filled soon. As Jackie mentioned, it is also currently available for preorder on Amazon.

      Thanks Jackie! David was amazing!!

    1. Thank you Denise - it was a wonderful experience. David and Mary are amazing and just like they are on TV and all of the behind the scenes crew too!

  26. In an indirect way (qvc) it was so nice to meet you! My favorite part other than seeing that glorious mac & cheese was you and David's little dance! I was out of town so I had to TIVO you. I saw 1 comment above that they pre-ordered on amazon. I will have to look into that. Well, again congratulations and thank you for teaching me that cooking does not have to be so stressful and my family looking forward to our time at the dinner table! Thank you have a great day.

  27. Let me add my congratulations to your QVC debut. I was watching when they announced that your cookbook had sold out. I know you had to have been thrilled to hear that. Looked like you were having a wonderful time on the show. Hope someplace like Costco picks up your book to sell.

    1. Thank you! It should be available all over though I'm not sure exactly what stores will or have ordered it. It is currently online at QVC on waitlist, or you can preorder on Amazon for May 1st delivery as well now.

  28. Mary darling I watched the segment on qvc.com since I don't have cable anymore, Comcast has lost their minds LOL. Dang gum it the book sold-out before I could get one for mama and myself. I'm so proud of you. I feel like I've known you and The Cajun for years through the blog. I'm so happy for you. You made David dance. When he tasted your peach cobbler I thought he was gonna cry. You looked beautiful that shade of blue on your shirt and your pearls. I was grinning ear to ear the whole segment :)

    1. Aw Tracey, thank you SO much!! (And you're the first person who even mentioned noticing the pearls!!) I've been a QVC customer for years and a fan of David's too, so it was very surreal to be there with my book. I'm not sure that it has quite hit me really!! The book is also available on Amazon for preorder here if you'd still like to get one. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this with me - sure made me smile!
