  • Crispy chicken cutlets with a heap of spring salad

    • Breadcrumbs on September 02, 2015

      p. 133 - mr bc pulled some b/s chx breasts out of the freezer yesterday morning so my challenge was to find a Southern recipe to put them to good use. An EYB search landed me here and it was love at first sight when I saw the photo in the book. This recipe was outstanding. The meat practically melted in our mouths. The breading was incredibly crisp and adhered perfectly to the chicken. A quick spritz of lemon and little sea salt scattered atop was all we needed to take this dish from amazing to perfect. Loved this!! mr bc ate 3 pieces! Photo here:

      I really love this method of cooking chicken cutlets. It is like fried chicken without all the work and mess. The salad can be varied as one likes. This is a good light meal with some crusty bread and berries for dessert.

  • Buttermilk blue cheese dressing

    • Breadcrumbs on May 05, 2015

      p. 285 - An excellent rendition of a classic. I liked the use of sherry vinegar in this one and the technique of mashing cheese into the vinegar. I did this with half the cheese as we also like to have some chunks of cheese in our dressing. I also did this prior to adding the shallots to make life easier. Instead of basil I used dill. I've also made this with red onion vs shallots and with sour cream vs Greek yogurt. In all cases this recipe produces terrific results. I always add chopped garlic. This is one of my go-to recipes for Blue Cheese Dressing as it's easily adaptable.

  • Shrimp jambalaya

    • adrienneyoung on October 10, 2012

      Pretty decent. Not stellar, but good weeknight food. Fast, no weird ingredients, and reheatable leftovers.

  • Memphis-style barbecued spare ribs

  • Quick cucumber pickles

    • JFM on August 06, 2013

      The best pickle recipe I've tried so far - so easy, so delicious.

    • sturlington on August 24, 2013

      This recipe is quick and easy, and can be used to make any kind of quick, vegetable pickle, not just for cucumbers. Keeps 1 month in the fridge. p87

  • Skillet-fried corn

    • sturlington on July 31, 2014

      Super simple and really delicious with fresh corn. Add zucchini/summer squash or leave it out. P230

  • Summer squash casserole

    • sturlington on March 26, 2013

      I had to admit that I was very skeptical about this recipe. Squash is not one of my favorite things, and this recipe includes a healthy amount of mayonnaise, among other not-good-for-you ingredients. Was I wrong. The casserole is sweet, creamy, but not overrich, with the bacon providing just the right contrast in terms of crunch and saltiness. This would definitely be a hit at any potluck. p257

  • Roxy's grated coleslaw

    • sturlington on February 15, 2015

      It was difficult to cut this recipe down and maintain the correct proportions. Mine came out a little too sour.

  • Creamy potato salad

    • sturlington on December 23, 2014

      Necessity being the mother of recipe adaptation, I discovered that the salad is just as creamy and delicious with half the mayonnaise, which was all I had. I added 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar to the potatoes right after draining. To the dressing, I added 1/2 tablespoon of Dijon mustard in place of half the Worcestershire, and I seasoned with salt and pepper, not explicitly called for in the recipe.

  • Cucumber and heirloom tomato salad

    • sturlington on July 09, 2013

      P269. Make an entree salad by adding crab or chicken salad. Make a sandwich by stuffing into a wrap with cheese. Can also add avocado to this.

  • Phyllis's comeback sauce

    • sturlington on April 22, 2014

      This is like a russian dressing or Southern-style remoulade. Good for burgers, sandwiches, salads, and dipping. p282

  • Sweet and spicy pecans

    • sturlington on December 24, 2014

      Easy and good. Could use a little more vanilla, I think, but that might have been my extract rather than the recipe. ETA Served these at Christmas and everybody loved them. The whole dish disappeared.

  • Kate's sweet potato refrigerator rolls

    • sturlington on November 24, 2014

      Note: Dough can be made ahead. p66

  • Baked rosemary sweet potato halves

    • julesamomof2 on March 23, 2020

      Easy and a touch nicer than a plain roasted sweet potato. Need to adjust the baking time based on the size of the potatoes. Mine took forever but I liked them better with some crisp almost burnt edges and caramelization.

  • Holiday cornbread dressing

    • lkgrover on November 26, 2020

      Excellent Thanksgiving herb dressing. I used 1 brioche loaf; no cornbread; reduced all other ingredients by 1/2. Fills one 9 x 9 inch baking dish.

  • Red beans and rice with andouille sausage

    • ellencooks on September 24, 2017

      I made this with canned beans and just simmered them with the ham and onions and peppers about 20 minutes before adding the sausage.

  • Fried eggplant with sugared tabasco sauce

    • ellencooks on February 08, 2017

      This was fantastic! The sweet-hot dipping sauce was a hit and we couldn't stop eating these.

  • Braised cabbage

    • ellencooks on February 08, 2017

      This is very simple and very good. The cabbage got done sooner than other dishes but kept well on the stove.
