    My go-to for traditional southern cooking. I love the savory pie recipes--vidalia onion and mushroom--and her sour cream pound cake is delectable.

      Delicious - this is my go-to for small number of people at dinner (you get just six small, very rich slices in a 7" or 6" springform). Comes out perfect every time (have made at least 30 times), you make this a day ahead (so great for entertaining) and it freezes perfectly. Ground nuts in batter are optional but I find they (I use pecans) are a nice addition. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or some coffee ice-cream (and die of happiness).
