I’m not sure how your summer’s been, but the staff of The Hungry Southerner has been roasting! After several days of temperatures in the 90’s, a cool white wine is a great way to beat the heat on a warm summer night. We’ve got two great options that are light, crisp and refreshing. The first is a Sauvignon Blanc from Cupcake Vineyards, recommended by one of our readers back in May. Thanks Kevin! The second is a Trinty Oaks Pinot Grigio. Give them both a try and let us know your favorite.

As a stress cooker, I did my fair share of baking in college. Most of my friends knew that an all night study session would inevitably be followed by an afternoon of baking stuff I couldn’t possibly eat, so they’d drop by after class got out to enjoy the spoils. Most of the time I’d make some cookies, but after a really bad test, I needed cake. Pound Cake, that is. So easy, and so good. Southern food made simple.
Ahh…. Red Velvet Cake. What a fantastic challenge! The first time I ever tasted Red Velvet Cake was six years ago at Regas Restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee. I was reluctant to try a nibble after I was told the cake was made with cocoa and the frosting made with cream cheese. Cocoa and cream cheese = icky. However, after my mother-in-law convinced me to take a bite of her piece, I ordered a ginormous piece of my own. It was SO stinkin’ good!
