Celebrating Southern Drawls, Southern Food and Southern Susan

When I remember Susan Shaffer, her very southern accent is the first thing that comes to mind. It always makes me smile. Twangy drawls were one of the things that Susan and I had in common. After twenty-five years of living in the Lowcountry, I've been able to tone my eastern North Carolina articulation down a good bit. Susan's cadence was a constant. Her words were always spoken slowly, softly and honestly. I miss my friend. With Susan on my mind, I'd like to share a few very southern recipes. This week's offerings are from a food photo shoot taken at my home a couple of years ago. Susan's husband, Mark, was the photographer, and Susan joined him at ...

Beaufort Tomato Pie

No two tomato pie recipes are the same. If someone actually added them up, I'd be willing to bet that folks from Beaufort have about a zillion recipes for Tomato Pie. They're all just a teeny little bit different. Some use a variety of fresh herbs, some add bacon, some use salad dressing instead of mayonnaise. No matter which version you prefer, we all agree that tomato pies are one of our favorite local delicacies and something we look forward to every June. It's very interesting to me that tomato pies are pretty much a Lowcountry thing. Most friends from my hometown of Wilson, North Carolina, had never tasted tomato pie until I published the recipe ...

Three Pounds of Cheese

I was watching the news this morning and learned that the world has an overrun of cheese. Such a huge overrun of cheese, that it will take each and every person on the planet, eating an extra 3 pounds of cheese this year to get the cheese market back on kilter. I don't know about you, but I'm ready, able and willing to do my part for the cheese industry. The recipes this week all feature cheese. Some are hot and gooey, some are cool and firm, but all are deliciously cheesy!

Sunshine Salads

Don't you just love the sunshine? I'm totally solar powered. I have to admit, I've been feeling a bit anti-social during the past few cold and dark winter months. And, I've been spending too much time at home eating my favorite comfort foods. Warm and bright days have been so good for my psyche and I'm feeling inspired again. This week I'm sharing three of my favorite (and delicious) slim-down salad recipes. Soon we'll be able to buy fresh spring and summer vegetables locally. Isn't it wonderful?Grilled Romaine Salad 1 cup mayonnaise ½ cup sour cream ¼ cup whole milk or cream 6 ounces blue cheese, crumbled 1 tablespoon shallot, finely grated 1 ...

Stevie Wonder, Ruby Slippers & Hoop Cheese

Did you watch the all-star tribute to Stevie Wonder television special last week? It was wonderful! I was 12 years old when Stevie's album, Songs in the Key of Life, was at its peak. Listening to all of the old songs made me a bit homesick for my friends, my youth and the food that I grew up with.I heard somewhere that the music you listen to when you're in your early teens is the music that remains your favorite for all of your life. I believe that's true. I also think it's the same way when it comes to food. Every time I go home to Wilson, NC, I visit all of my favorite restaurants (even at the risk of gaining a few pounds) just because I can.Stev...
