Celebrate! with Debbi Covington — Thanksgiving Sides (Episode 1)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBrLxzw1GeA&t=53s It's one of my favorite things to be thankful for. I don't have to cook Thanksgiving dinner. Vince and I are blessed to be invited to a gathering of friends every year. All we have to do is show up with a side dish. In true southern fashion, the turkeys are deep-fried and everyone takes copious amounts of vegetables, salads, side dishes and desserts. In keeping with the spirit of not being responsible for the main course, I'm sharing a couple of delicious Thanksgiving side dish recipes and a seasonal cocktail. In spite of the experience of a very trying year, we have so much to be grateful for. ...

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 ...

On the Menu This Week

I wish I had a really good tale to share in this issue, but I don't. A combination of busyness and laziness has kept me at home for most of the week. I have, however, been trying some new recipes that I thought Vince and I would enjoy. So, they're my column for this week. Lucky for all of us, the recipes are easy and delicious. Each one boasts a brightness of fresh citrus. Great for dinner on hot nights, the Vietnamese Pork Salad and Beef Satay Noodles only need a chilled glass of wine to make a complete meal. Trust me, you'll love the icing on the cake. Excellent summer supper food!Vietnamese Pork Salad1 pound ground pork9 tablespoons fresh lime ...

I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues

When I was growing up, my mother's go-to salad was a wedge of iceberg lettuce topped with a blob of chunky blue cheese dressing. She and Daddy scarfed it up like it was candy. I turned my nose up. What was the appeal of this stinky, gooey cheese stuff? Of course, I swore that I would never eat blue cheese. And, once again I'm eating my words. I love blue cheese! I love blue cheese with so many things – on steaks, on salads, stuffed in mushrooms, melted over grilled vegetables, the options are endless. This week's recipes all feature blue cheese. You can choose your favorite variety. Personally, I like the stronger blues like gorgonzola. If you're ...
