Southern Plate Digest 1-14-11
It’s been an odd week here in Alabama. A lot of us have experienced being snowed in for the first time in our life and I think just about everyone (in Alabama and beyond) have kept winter at bay by cooking up a storm in their kitchen!
I thought I’d compile a list of what everyone has been cooking (special thanks to all the folks who answered my question on facebook this morning to make this list easier to compile!) with link to the recipes in case you get a hankering to head in the kitchen and whip some of these up.
So, What’s Been Cooking in the Southern Plate Family?
HERE WE GO!
Lots of folks have made this since I posted it earlier in the week.
Rachel Wesley said: “I fixed your BBQ Joint stew last night and the first word out of my husbands mouth was, ‘Wow!’ It was definately a hit.”
Kelly Watson said: “I made your banana crumb cake! Since it made 2 cakes we got our snow boots on and walked the other one to our pastor and his wife (just down the block). Everyone LOVED it!”
Kimberly Duncan said: “I made your chicken planks the other night.. Won over several northerners! Last night we had your chili and again, Big Hit!! I’m from southern Missouri but live in Wisconsin.. My kids are constantly dragging their friends home to ‘eat real food’!! Haha!! Oh, and the Banana Crumb Cake, everyone’s new favorite!! ”
Celest Koncul said: “I made your chicken stew and we loved it! Had your Bama steak sandwiches last night-that has become a stand by for me.Keep em coming,please!”
Debbie Strum said: ” Just made the Double Chocolate Chip Muffins and OhmytheyareSOOOgood!!! I feel so content now. Gonna have to put more cocoa powder on the shopping list. You’ll have NO REGRETS making these! And trust me, they’re just as good the next morning. Well, if there are any left! Gonna splurge and have another one with some hot chocolate. Christy, no wonder yer younguns think you’re the “bestest cooker” and Mama in the whole world! DANG WOMAN!
Mary Mounts said: I had never heard of “hoe cakes” until I saw your recipe. I’ve made it 6 straight days now and both my hubby and I love it, especially with butter in the middle. A million thank you’s Christy.
These are just a few of the recipes folks have been whipping up this week from Southern Plate. I hope you’ll visit the links and make a few of them appear on your table soon, too. Be sure to check out the Southern Plate cookbook if you haven’t already!
I’d also like to thank Melissa Herring for posting this photo, which is sooooo true! ~giggles~
