If you can't find something you remembered seeing posted, I probably haven't gotten to it yet. The search box in the upper right hand side of the website might be helpful.

  1. I stumbled upon this site looking for Sunday meal ideas. I absolutely LOVE it! I already have 4 recipes I'm going to try this week. In addition to the good looking food, I appreciate how much care you took in organizing this site. If I see too much at once I get overwhelmed and usually will just look elsewhere. Thanks...this site is now in my favorites. :)

  10. Dear Mary, I have been cooking for over 50 years and you help keep it fun for me and my now extended family. I have collected almost 3000 cookbooks over the years but I probably refer to your beautiful site more than any other resource. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your talents and your kitchen with us. Southern cooking is still the best!

  11. Mary, I just recently discovered your web site - how did I miss this fabulous source? I am Teresa from North Carolina, just up a few interstates from the Deep South and I've been cooking for over 40 years, cooking is just part of my DNA. I'm so looking forward to new recipes from your Deep South Dish - yes, Southern cooking is the best!

    1. Welcome Teresa & thank you so much! I started blogging back in 2008, but I have no interest in being famous, so I don't really do the whole self promotion thing so many bloggers pursue. I just enjoy cooking and sharing my recipes and I just mostly hang out in my own little corner of the web. I'm so happy you found your way here and look forward to getting to know you!

  13. Mary, I just found your site a week or so ago & have tried a couple of your recipes & commented on them. I'd like to thank you so much for the delicious recipes & hard work you put into this blog. I was raised in northeastern Ohio but was born in eastern KY & now live in central Virginia. My parents also are from KY. My mother is still alive (84) & cooks many of the recipes you list. I learned to cook at an early age & enjoy preparing southern foods. Now that I'm retired from nursing I have ample time to browse through your blog & try some of your recipes which have been delicious. I look forward to trying many more.

  15. I bumped into your site today. You have a wonderful place. I grew up in the low country of SC but have lived in Florida since 1969. I love to cook.

    Dishes from Louisiana and the SC low country are my favorites but I love all things Southern. My friends say I am a good cook and it's not unusual for any of them to call and ask me to prepare certain dishes for them. I enjoy doing that. Food was meant to be shared.

  21. Hi Mary...
    I so enjoy the recipes on your site...I am as Southern as you and things like the Hoecake, well I have told my kids about my grandmother making that for breakfast when we would spend the night with her.. I have always wanted to make it just like she did and you have nailed it...we ate it with fried cheese and coffee...I was offered coffee at a very young age... she cooled it in the saucer - you probably have seen that too... Thank you for all the wonderful recipes I grew up with - I am going to take my girls down memory lane for some delicious southern food....

    1. Oh yes, definitely. Mama used to make me coffee milk like many of us had - I'm sure that's where my love of coffee began. I did the same thing with my own son!

    1. Thank you so much! I actually do have a cookbook that will debut in early May 2015. I'm scheduled to be on QVC on 3/15 however, and those viewers will have an exclusive preorder opportunity live during the "In the Kitchen with David." Those purchases will be received ahead of the general public, otherwise, it will be widely available in May 2015!

  24. Mary - You have truly done a great service by compiling all these wonderful recipes. I know I have personally found many southern classics here that have reminded me of my childhood; recipes that I haven't thought about in years, but that hold great sentimental value to me.

    You have brought together many different heritages and have captured the soul and essence of the South so that many more generations can enjoy these tried and true classic recipes. You have also ensured that the traditions of family dining will carry on for years. Cooking is one of the best ways to show true personality and character and these recipes are chock full of that. It's inspiring that anyone can have a true taste of the South with these recipes.

    Thank you so much!

  26. I made your recipe for Creamy Butter Beans and they were fantastic. I did not have a ham hock but did have a ham flavored bean seasoning which I used instead. I made the whole lb of beans and shared half with my neighbor and she loved it also. Thanks and I will make this again.

    1. Hi! I keep saying I need to do a tutorial, but here's what I do. Make sure you have a clean skillet - use a scrubber brush to remove any stuck on gunk. Then rub the skillet all over inside and on the sides inside with vegetable or canola oil or Crisco - just a thin layer of it. I have found you really need to use a neutral oil and not something like bacon or other animal fats, butter or olive oil which all can turn rancid. Turn up the edges of a sheet of aluminum foil to form a tray or use a rimmed baking sheet on the bottom rack of the oven, place the skillet upside down on the oven rack above that. Bake at 500 degrees for about 30 minutes, remove and let cool. See how it performs, and if it still sticks you will need to repeat the seasoning and go a little longer. Remember every time you use your cast iron, scrub it clean with a scrub brush but no soap, wipe it dry and wipe a thin layer of a neutral oil all over the insides, then wipe it dry before storing it. If it starts sticking again, just repeat the re-seasoning. It is best to reserve one skillet to use only for your cornbread and nothing else and a slightly larger one for other cooking. Hope that helps!!

  29. Hi Mary,

    Of all the recipe sites I have visited over the years, yours is the first I've come across that comes close to how my Mom cooked. I'm one of those who have not let recipes go by the wayside. I just made this on Father's Day for Husband in honor of my Dad, who loved this dish when my Mama made it. The only difference is, Mama seasoned, lightly floured and browned the roast on all sides before adding it to an oven roaster, adding the tomato sauce, onions, garlic to slowly cook all day, basting it in the last hour of cooking. I grew up in Bay St Louis and am so glad to see some real recipes on the net!

    1. Oh goodness, thank you so much & Happy 4th! The Cajun and I were actually over at the Crab Festival in Bay St. Louis last night! Wow, has that grown!! It's been awhile and it's a bit of a trip for us but I'm so glad we went. The shrimp were enormous!! Hubby didn't want to fool with picking crabs, but found myself wishing I had grabbed some for the ride home. Lo and behold Dad sent some over he got out of his crab traps this morning and had just finished boiling, yay!!

Ur recipes are so like my Virginian born and raised great grandma that I feel like shes in the kitchen with me. She taught me to cook on the wood cookstove in my mama's kitchen. From Mema, I learned so much especially to learn as many different cultures of cooking. Guess thats the irish side of this Heinz 57 (my name is heather after all). thanks so much for ur wonderful site. hmmm. . . mema's chicken and noodles r starting to sound really good for tonight while i am corning my brisket point.

  37. So far I have prepared two dishes, I prepared the chicken and broccoli cheese casserole for thanksgiving, and yesterday I prepared the southern beef goulash, my husband feel in love, he crave about how good this dish was and advise me to keep this menu on the table. I want to say thank you so much, for once I have found a site where I can prepare almost every recipe, recipes that are not too difficult, no fantast names to them, ingredients are in your kitchen and if they aren't you are not breaking the bank to purchase what you need, but most importantly it takes you back to that deep southern home style cooking, cooking that your little ones can grow up on as we did once upon a time. I have so many dishes to prepare. oh and by the way "slap yo mama" seasoning is my secret season. I normally use the creole season which I love but that slap yo mama. Yassss honey! thank you so much!

  40. Your recipes are certainly encouraging!
    I used your Hamburger Steak with Creamy Onion Gravy recipe to help use up a box of frozen hamburger patties. I have to pick up some Kitchen Bouquet to help make the gravy as dark as yours. My family was very happy with the results!
    I did attempt to visit a few links on the recipes page, but I'm finding a lot of "whoops!" pages. Broken links? Not all but quite a few of the ones I've tried. Just thought I would point it out.
    Thank you for sharing your love of cooking!

Apparently Google, who hosts my blog, was having some problems tonight for about an hour or so, but I do think that the issue was resolved, because things seem to be working now (I hope!) I wasn't the only blogger affected, but so sorry about the inconvenience - I'm hoping it's fixed.

  42. Hi Mary. I have really enjoyed browsing your site and so far I've had 100% success with the recipes that I've tried (and I'm a lousy cook). I am posting tonight, hoping that you can help. My friend made the most incredible bisque-like dish, but she did not stuff the crawfish, but instead shaped the bisque like meatballs, but bisqueballs coated in a rich cream sauce and then served over rice. I don't think they were fried or baked and somehow they kept their shape and consistency. Do you have any kind of recipe like that? I searched but didn't find one. Thanks you!

    1. Thanks so much! On the bisque - I do not currently have a recipe on the blog, although I did save a big bag of cleaned crawfish heads to do it! But then we moved & they got tossed - my nephew asked "why did you have crawfish shells in your freezer??" lol... The heads are used to hold the stuffing together really, that's their primary purpose since they don't really provide flavor. To do the unstuffed balls, you'd just need to use a bit more filler to firm them up, and then bake them first. They'll hold together better once they are baked, then when you prepare the bisque, be sure to keep it at a low simmer with the balls in there and only simmer them for about 15-20 minutes or so, so that they don't break up. That should do it!
