Though I live in the midwestern city of Chicago, I have a strong appreciation for all things southern. I love flipping through the latest issue of Southern Living -- I'm a subscriber! I'm looking forward to visiting more great southern destinations - Hot Springs, AK, Louisville, KY, Asheville, NC and Chattanooga, TN are at the top of my list. It goes without saying that I love southern cooking -- who doesn't!
Here's a book that showcases the best of the best in good ole southern cookin':
Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen by Francine Bryson and Ann Volkwein.
So far my top recipe picks in this book are...
Faked Out Fried Chicken - bakes, not fried!2
Corn Fritters (OMG so good!!!)
Fried Okra (the best!!)
The instructions are super easy and don't call for a bazillion hard-to-find ingredients. The book features a total of 125 dishes with 60 color photographs, too, helping you bring a little southern charm to your table.
