Southern

 

Chicken and PeasThis started as a recipe from my stepmom. She grew up on a farm in southern Indiana and would make this for us but hers was dredged in flour and more like an oven fried chicken. I am trying to be a bit more healthy and eat a low carb diet so I removed the flour and honestly, I don't miss it. This is still a really good chicken recipe thats super easy to make.
Early Girl BennyGrit cakes topped with country ham, tomato, spinach, poached eggs, tomato gravy and avocado, served with toast or a homemade biscuit.
Aunt Fanny’s Buttermilk PieIf you're not familiar with it, buttermilk pie is made with a creamy custard. Some call it sugar pie down here. From the book Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen.
Pickle-Brined ThighsNever throw out the juice left behind in a dill pickle jar. It's a bit like liquid gold, flavored by the pickles and perfectly salty for brining. This recipe delivers juicy meat with a zingy tang encased in a crispy coating.
