Grandmama’s bon bons

Grandmama always made these and stored them in coffee tins in her fridge :)


Grandmama's butterbean soup

My grandmother used to make this butterbean soup to fill up our hungry stomachs after school. She died this year, but in my mind I can still walk into her house, smell the soup on the stove and then watch her, standing at her old gas stove, ladling me a warm bowl of this delicious soup.

Grandmama’s wind cake

Here in Alabama, signs of spring are popping up all round. When spring peeps her pretty little head out, we know that fresh berries aren’t far behind. This cake is particularly good with fresh berries or on it’s own. It’s somewhat like an angel food cake but truly in a class all it’s own when […]

Mama and grandmama make apple dumplings

I am so excited that this is apple week for Southern Plate. The weather has turned cooler here and brought with it thoughts of beef stew and apple dumplings. Of course, I love apples cooked any way, Apple Dapple cake, fried apples, apple pie and these apple dumplings. Tonight I made a big pot of […]


My great-grandmama’s eggs goldenrod, with a kick (kick optional)

I grew up eating this usually for dinner instead of breakfast. After I moved across the country, this was the one thing I always asked for when going back home. Finally, my mom showed me how to make it for myself. Then I put the kick into it!
