The Southern Plate Family
Southern Plate was founded in 2008 by Christy Jordan, a food blogger, bestselling cookbook author, tv personality, former editor at large for Southern Living Magazine, former contributing editor to Taste of the South magazine, and someone who loves to feed people. Christy has since passed on the reigns and Southern Plate is now in the hands of the Eaton family who love, well yeah, you guessed it, eatin’. 😉
SouthernPlate has been twice named one of the top 25 food websites in the country, and draws millions of visitors each month.
Where is the save option??? Do you not have it anymore???
I saw that in a few of your recipes you used Ginter Corner Tap ‘n’ Sap Syrup. I know exactly who make that. My grandparents! I thought that was cool.
thanks for sharing 🙂 And I love that you are a part of our Southern Plate family 🙂
Your Apple dapple cake was a hit in NZ…I love cooking it.
Oh wow! Thanks for letting me know it was a hit so far away!! I am so glad you love cooking it !!
You are both terribly lucky to have such a rich and loving heritage, where food is comfort. I experienced this from my Nanna who died at 98 when I was 16 and my x2 aunties… Not from my parents.
I did not have the experience of comfort food that you southerners had… I learned to cook at a very young age from the English books in my library… not really ideal.
I have been an avid follower of “the southern plate” for many years…
I live in “southern Australia” and have finally procured a property, I grow everything that i can… my husband has produced great garden beds, I milk my own goats… Sadly the one thing which separates us is that Americans cook from cans…
No criticism… I still love your work, it is inspiring…
I was so confused when I saw someone else doing a video on the Southern Plate Instagram
What’s going on and where’s Christy?!? No offense but she IS Southern Plate and it won’t be the same now
Her down home and warm personality and stories are why I started following her years ago
Disappointed Follower ☹️
Hi Becky, thanks for your comment. I understand how you feel. Christy as the founder of Southern Plate has always been leading the charge when it comes to good wholesome down home Southern food. She had a calling to serve the Lord through her fellowship and just wasn’t able to give time to both Southern Plate and her fellowship. So over a year and a half ago I met Christy and we began working together on Southern Plate. In Sept 2020 she has been doing her fellowship work full time and I have had Southern Plate full time since then. So I hope you can see that my goal is to bring the same down home feel to y’all as I continue Christy’s work going forward. It’s an honor to have been chosen by her to do this. Here is the handover video we did almost a year ago. Please watch when you have time. And I hope you continue to be part of our Southern Plate family. There will always be a place for you at our table. https://youtu.be/TsWb2FJ3fgM
Will there still be Meal Plan Monday recipes? I love these as I found new ways of fixing food that I would have never even thought of! And the recipes worked for just plain folks like me (plus I usually had the ingredients). I’ve been busy sorting out things after my mother’s death so maybe I missed something. She LOVED the Christmas cakes story as that’s what she always remembered about her childhood Christmas. Her mother made assorted cakes depending on what was available, there was no money for store bought gifts. Mama was 90 last year but she always remembered her childhood Christmas cakes. Thank you for your story and the smiles and memories Mama and I shared.
I just realized Christy isn’t here anymore, why did she leave
