Pumpkin Crunch Dessert with Frosting

A cross between gooey butter cake, dump cake and pumpkin pie, this dessert is a fall favorite and perfect for the holidays or to carry to a church supper, family gathering or potluck.

Pumpkin Crunch Dessert

Apple and pumpkin recipes are definitely fall favorites, though I lean more toward the apple recipes than the pumpkin. Unless we're talking about pumpkin pie, of course, or... this Pumpkin Crunch!

This recipe has been a personal favorite for way too many years than I care to admit! Though you'll find variations around the internet today, and in older church and community cookbooks, this is the one that I love dating back to sometime in the 70s.

Southern Thanksgiving Dinner Classics

A classic Southern Thanksgiving meal in my family - roasted turkey with from scratch gravy, homemade mashed potatoes, baked ham, chicken and dressing, sweet potato casserole, spinach Madeline, corn spoonbread, hashbrown casserole and glazed carrots.

Southern Thanksgiving Dinner Classics

I have a huge collection of Thanksgiving appropriate recipes that covers everything from beverages, to appetizers, to salads, main dish meats, side dishes and desserts, and everything in between.

It's a perfect resource for those who are not committed to any set menu and for adventurous souls who just want to do something a little different every year.

Baked Ham Collection

A collection of baked hams from the classic southern favorite glazed with brown sugar and mustard with cola, to old school pineapple, apple cider, whisky glazed and more, all from Deep South Dish!

Baked Ham Collection

I'm not one to be married to one ham recipe, though my favorite for many years and still today is the old school cola with brown sugar and mustard. My version has also become a favorite of many of you!

Truth is, I've even played around with that one over the years too.

One thing for certain is that a baked ham is not limited to the holidays for me. Truth is, I bake one every couple of months, rather than to buy sliced deli ham and for one, I want that ham bone for some beans!

Deep-Fried Butterflied Panko Shrimp

Wild American shrimp are butterflied, highly seasoned, dipped in flour, then blended milk and egg and last in panko breadcrumbs, then deep-fried.

Deep-Fried Butterflied Panko Shrimp

Even though I love fried shrimp all kinds of ways, my number one way to make them is the classic version.

It's the one I crave and make the most.

I also love them batter-dipped or tempura style and if I'm baking them like an oven fry, panko breadcrumbs are likely to be my top choice of breading, just for the added crunch.

This time I thought I'd try the panko breadcrumbs in a deep fry instead, and I'm glad I did. They turned out fantastic!

Hamburger Steaks in Tomato Gravy

Seasoned ground beef patties, dredged lightly in flour, then pan fried, onions caramelized in the drippings in which a tomato-based gravy is created, and the patties returned to finish.

Hamburger Steaks in Tomato Gravy

Hamburger Steaks and Gravy is a go to for me and a favorite meal for my meat and potatoes hubby. 

It's super easy to make, tastes great and is a filling, belly warmin', delicious meal. 

As much as we love tomato gravy here in the South, trading the classic brown gravy for a tomato-based version is a natural transition.

Basic Boiled Cabbage

Simple and basic, cabbage is gently boiled in a chicken stock base, flavored with butter and bacon drippings and simply seasoned with salt and pepper.
