Fresh Strawberry Cobbler

Early Louisiana strawberries have been so abundant and affordable since their arrival, that they've been a regular purchase on our grocery list all month. Now we're starting to see the Florida berries show up in the markets.

Homemade Southern Style Chicken and Dumplings

I didn't grow up with what many of you deem to be a classic Southern style rolled dumpling. Mama's chicken and dumplings had fluffy little puffs of biscuit dough floating in them and they were so good. It's the way I made them when I moved on from my parent's house to the house I shared with my husband, and they remain my favorite still today.

Frankly, no two Southerners are likely to agree on how chicken and dumplings should be made anyway, but I know of quite a few other Southerners who quietly admit that they grew up with drop dumplings too. Guess it just all depends on what you grew up with.

Sometimes you just want your cornbread in convenient little packages with crispy edges all around, rather than just a slice cut off of a pan, and corn muffins are just one of many ways to get that. There are quite a few specialty pans you can buy for this these days, but most everybody already has a muffin tin, making it the most convenient delivery system for these little bites of cornbread.

Noodles and Cabbage

First off, let's just clear the air by saying no... this is not a "southern" recipe, so out of the gate, I'll let you know that we are veering off the path today, to visit, in this case, Poland.

One day, not long ago, a reader mentioned this dish on the Facebook page and, being a lover of all things cabbage, I decided to make it. I had no idea of the true origins of this cabbage and noodle dish, so I did a little digging. Turns out, based on my own ancestry, it should already be in my blood and so, in truth, I guess it actually does fit here.

Garlic Cheddar Drop Biscuits

Since I still had some baking mix in the pantry, leftover from my annual holiday sausage cheese balls, I thought it'd be a good time to use some to publish these drop biscuits with garlic and cheese. These yummy biscuits were made famous by Red Lobster restaurant's Cheddar Bay Biscuit of course, and the multitude of copycat recipes that resulted from it. This is the copycat version that I ended up with after a few trials.

The recipe for Pasta e Fagioli, a pasta and white bean dish, in the Italian cookbook, The Silver Spoon, is much less involved than the Americanized soup we are more familiar with from the Olive Garden restaurants.
