At Last! Today is the debut of Quick Fix Suppers, the video series I’m hosting on I’m so excited to bring you this series, and especially today’s recipe! Since filming these a few weeks ago, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve made the recipe I’ll be showing you today. It’s just that good (and so very simple).  At the end, you’ll see the coolest tip, too!

To commemorate the debut of Quick fix Suppers, we’d like for you to go watch the videos and come back and tell us what you think!

I’ll pick ten comments at random on Sunday night and we’ll send each of those an advance copy of the June issue of Southern Living Magazine, which hits newsstands on May 20th.

I would really appreciate it if you could help me spread the word about my new series! Please head on over and watch them and be sure and tell your friends!

Gratefully, Christy

— Series Complements New Column Based on Readers’ Questions, Debuting in the June Issue, on Newsstands May 20th
New York, NY – Southern Living introduces “Quick-Fix Suppers,” a new video series starring cookbook author and blogger Christy Jordan of Southern Plate, who demonstrates how to make dinner in 45 minutes or less.

Daily time-saving tips accompany Jordan’s weekly 3- to 4-minute, how-to videos so people can spend less time in the kitchen and more time around the table. The video series is a companion to the “Quick-Fix Suppers” column debuting in the magazine’s June issue, hitting newsstands Friday, May 20, and features new video content updated weekly.
“I’ve fallen hard for Christy’s pure Southern charm, not to mention her strawberry-pretzel salad and other childhood favorites,” says Southern Living editor Lindsay Bierman. “She’s the real deal, a busy mom who found her calling to cook and blog from the heart in a way that has inspired and informed millions of readers and followers. Christy’s cooking demos make every meal seem incredibly easy and fun.”

Readers can ask questions online at www.southernliving/quickfix or on Facebook. Southern Living Test Kitchen Specialist Vanessa McNeil Rocchio, herself a busy mom, will develop weeknight menus based on reader requests. Videos online at launch include: Quick-Fix Tacos, Pasta, Shrimp Noodle Bowls and One Pot Pasta.

Our days are happier when we give people a piece of our heart

rather than a piece of our mind.

Disclaimer: *Contest closes at midnight central time on May 15th. Winners announced on this post Monday morning. I was not financially compensated for this giveaway and Southern Living is providing the prizes to the winners. I think fresh watermelon sprinkled with a little bit of kosher salt is about a close as we can get to what food will taste like in heaven while still here on earth. Disclaiming all done now, Amen.

    Hooray for you and all of us who need some Quick-Fix dinner ideas. All your videos were great and I look forward to seeing more on Southern Living. I don’t subscribe to their magazine (as I’m a Midwesterner) but would love a free copy of their magazine especially if they have you featured in it! I liked the idea of using the rotisseree chicken as a base for the King Ranch Casserole. With those already prepared in the grocery store, even the dark meat tastes great!

    I love cooking but hate spending long periods of time in the kitchen. I loved the chicken taco video. Was super fast and looked delish. Totally making it this week. Also,loved the tip about using the muffin pan to fill the tacos!!! Anything that gets me out of the kitchen faster and makes meal prep easier…..Count me in!!!

      In the south, our mamas teach us, “If you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything at all.” While you may live to be 90 by choosing healthy cooking and eating, it may be worth it to sacrifice 5 or 10 years and live a happy life on positivity and hamburger steak!

  3. Sylvia Faye says

    I declare there are so oooo many comments that everyone seeks to find
    ‘a quick ‘n easy’ receipe; especially with summer coming, honey!

    Southern Living was one of the first magazine’s I subscribed to when this Southern Lady moved to the Great Northwest.

    Loved, loved the fiesta look of the tacos and the wonderful tip on how to fill them using something most of us have on hand; a muffin tip ya’ll.

    One cannot win a giveaway without entering and so it is a little like fishin’ you put your entry in and hope your pole (comment) is a lucky catch.

  5. Kelly says

    Congratulations on your video series! You did such a great job!
    I had to tell you that my daughter had an upset stomach this past weekend and her only request was french toast….but no loaf bread in the house. I was flipping through your cookbook and TA-DA! “Waste-not, want-not french toast”!! Caroline was able to pick up the hotdog buns like french toast sticks and you’re right, you can’t beat the taste! YUM!!
    Thank you for all of your great ideas and recipes!

    Wonderful job new star of Southern Living and QVC!!! I was not home yesterday but video taped it (how old school am I). You were fabulous and that southern boy host was lovin your momma’s receipes! Makes my heart swell to see a home town girl do well…

  7. Suzette says

    I recorded the session and watched it today! You looked so fantastic! I’m so excited for you! It looked like you had a grand time. You are blessing people with your food and your message. I’m blessed to have met you at the Nashville book signing! Life is good! Blessings!

  8. says

    Hey Christy, I love the videos on SL. Whodathunk of using a muffin tin as a taco stand. Great tidbit!! I was sorry to miss you on QVC we had company for lunch and most of the afternoon on Sunday. I made your Mama’s chicken planks for supper two nights ago and it was a huge success. It’s probably good I don’t live in Alabama, I’d probably be stalking you to the grocery store just to meet you. You just touch my heart. I’m kidding about the stalking part…kinda…;)

  9. Marie H says

    Christy….. You Go Girl….Great Job!!! You are a natural in front of that camera.
    Using the muffin tin is a good tip……and I will use it this week

    MICHELLE……I would “stalk” her too…… :o)
