  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.

  14. I have been wanting to make a down home southern dinner for a long time. Since I live in Colorado (Near the Wyoming border) it is tough! I can't wait to try all (if not most) of these recipes!

  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!

      You're so welcome Linda and thank you so much for such a sweet & uplifting note!

    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!!
