Peanut Butter, Cream Cheese, & Brown Sugar Heaven!
This is a GREAT activity to do with kids but even adults enjoy the “neatness” factor of making your own butter.
I gave this recipe to Southern Living to print in the October 2010 issue….
This dip combines the best of both worlds with the taste of buffalo chicken wings, cheesy goodness, and none of those little annoying bones!

The reason I say don’t let that get around is that you know any Southerner who doesn’t consider themselves to be a fan of such a sacred sport stands a serious chance of losing their citizenship card and being deported. Fortunately, I [...]

My great grandmother, Mama Reed, always had a relish tray at every meal. My mother remembers it being filled with homemade pickles, pickled beats, and fresh vegetables from her own garden according to season. It was the perfect accompaniment to every meal. Folks could pass it around and use the contents to add variety and [...]

What do Southerners love more than their Mamas and their biscuits? Good things to put on our biscuits, of course!!! We top these light and fluffy creations with numerous things. Molasses, honey, chocolate gravy, fresh butter, assorted meats and cheeses, jellies, jams, and the ever wonderful preserves. Homemade preserves are quite possibly the perfect compliment to the southern biscuit.
