As I enter my third November with, I thought I’d bring you some past November favorites from the site. Hope you enjoy them!

Sawdust Pie

If you’ve never had Sawdust pie before, I really do feel it could become a fast family favorite. The taste is rich and buttery, and whipped cream and sliced bananas set it off to sheer perfection.

Homemade Cinnabuns – the easy way

These cinnamon rolls have power behind them – real power. You could pretty much get anything you wanted if you showed up toting a plate of these babies, warm with icing oozing down the side.

Mexican Wedding Cookies

My mother used to make these especially for me when I was a little girl because I loved the Danish Wedding Cookies that were sold in the grocery stores. They were a bit pricey, so she made these for me instead – which were MUCH better anyway!

THANK YOU for supporting the book and!

I love what I do and am forever grateful to you for allowing me to continue to do it.

Dear Family,

I’ve made it to the home stretch of the book tour! This is my last week of heavy travel away from the kids and we are really looking forward to getting back to whatever our new normal ends up being. I’m looking forward to being home to get them ready for school and tuck them in at night. I’ve had a wonderful time getting to meet you all, but I am soooooooo meant to be at home with my family.

As I head out to Fairhope and Birmingham Alabama this week, you can watch for me tomorrow on Talk of Alabama in Birmingham and come meet me at either of those book signings. I have a hug with your name on it! For more information, please click here.

Be sure to check out what I’ve added December 29th! It’s a special surprise. I’ll have another surprise to put up there soon, too! A lot of people have read about that surprise date and asked if I’m bringing the family with me. I’m actually going to fly in and fly back home as soon as I can. 1. It’s very expensive to fly four people up there. 2. As beautiful as New York can be at Christmas and New Years, Alabama has all that I need.

Thank you for lifting me up and loving me back. 🙂



Every person ever created is so special that their presence in the world makes it richer and fuller and more wonderful than it could have ever been without them.

  1. Hi, Christy! Congratulations on your third November. It has been a delightful journey! I always look forward to hearing from you–even if I’m taking the day off from cooking! God bless you and your family richly.
    P.S. The wedding cookies are my favorite, too!

  2. Christy: Just want to let you know I have made the Cold Brew Coffee a couple of times. I enjoy it so much. And to think that I am saving money, too. It’s so good. I think of you every time I drink some of it. My favorite way is to mix coffee, milk, some ice cubes and two packs of Splenda. Stir and enjoy. It’s so refreshing. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
    May God continue to bless you in the future. Barb

  3. Hey “cuz” Christy,
    I know you are ready to be home for a while. It’s nice traveling, but getting home to family is so up there in my book. My husband and I went on a 16 day trip to Europe in ’01 and I was sooo ready to get back to my kids. It was a little bit too long to be away from them. Hope to get to see you soon!

  4. I know you will not come on tour near me but I wish you the best. I just love the book and I actually collect cookbooks (for more years than I would like) and I love yours and the recipes in it. I got a signed bookplate from the publisher for pre-ordering and I thought that was great. Love the food.

  5. Hi Christy. Just purchased your new cookbook-I LOVE it!!! Now if only I could get my copy signed. Thanks so much for all the wonderful recipes and your sweet memories! Kathy

  6. I am glad your tour is going well, but it will be good to get you back where you belong too. As Dorothy so wisely proclaimed in The Wizard of Oz–“there’s no place like home!”

  7. Can’t wait to meet you in Fairhope, this is my special birthday present to me and I am so excited. Reading your stories and the posts and comments from other readers gives me hope for the world. There are still people out there that value family, food and faith. Thank you, Christy for giving us Southern Plate.
