6. Southern Black Eyed Peas

Ain’t nothing better than a plate of soulful black-eyed peas over rice, served with cornbread, and collard greens! Oh my goodness. I absolutely love it. I swear my mom made the best black eyed peas. Her recipe was pretty simple. She used smoked ham hocks, onions, and seasoned the black-eyed peas with seasoning salt, and a few other spices. She never went overboard with it. She kept her recipe simple. I’m the same way!

7. Applewood Smoked Turkey

So here’s the deal. I smoked a turkey breast for time-intensive reasons and in hopes of not wasting any food. I HATE wasting food. This was not an issue considering we took down this turkey in a matter of days – just the two of us.

This is a classic old-fashioned Southern-style giblet gravy made with the addition of hard-boiled eggs. If you like an egg-free gravy, feel free to omit the hard-boiled eggs. Use this recipe to make a delicious gravy to go with your chicken, Cornish game hens, or roasted turkey.

9. Southern Milk & Honey Corn On The Cob

This recipe for Southern Milk and Honey Corn on The Cob will be one of the best corn on the cob recipes you will have ever try this season hands down; made with delicious Florida sweet corn, simmered slowly in whole milk, organic honey, unsalted butter, and seasoned to perfection with Cajun spices, kosher salt, and freshly ground peppercorns. So darn good you won’t even bother with extra butter or salt.

11. Southern Potato Salad

Good old fashioned southern potato salad. Sounds good right? Well, I figure I’d get on here and share my version for southern style potato salad before barbecue season hits next month. Besides, y’all have been requesting it for quite some time now. Believe it or not, I actually posted a potato salad recipe a few years ago. However, since then I have changed a couple of ingredients, and I’ve also changed a few of the preparation steps. Let me tell you how I make my southern style potato salad!

12. Parmesan-Butternut Squash Gratin

Crispy bread crumbs add a bit of crunch to tender slices of butternut squash seasoned with garlic and Parmesan, making this a can’t-miss side that even veggie skeptics adore. It’s also easy to make ahead — perfect for holiday feasts.

13. Bourbon Pecan Pie

This is a classic and simple recipe given a Southern kick with a little bourbon. The alcohol will evaporate when you bake the pie, and you’re left with a richly flavored, gooey dessert, intensely sweet with a baseline of vanilla. You do need both light and dark corn syrup for this — using only one or the other will change the pie’s flavor.

Never a fan of pumpkin pie, this sweet potato pie was a revelation. It was lighter yet creamier than its pumpkin cousin, with a heavy dose of vanilla and subtle spices.
