If your not familiar with South City Kitchen, it’s a great Southern style restaurant with two locations in and around the Atlanta,GA area known for dishes like their Fried Chicken and Fried Green Tomatoes. Chef Chip spent some time showing us how to cook Collard Greens in less than 30 minutes that are flavorful, full of texture and easy to prepare. He gave us every instruction we needed to make this fool proof. So if you’re looking for a modern way of cooking Southern Style Collard Greens Chef Chip’s recipe will point you in in the right culinary direction. Stay Hungry Ya’ll !

Until I met my husband, I thought that everyone liked pumpkin. There is nothing like a big piece of pumpkin pie smothered with homemade whipped cream after a 1000 calorie feast on Thanksgiving, haha. No really, though. Pumpkin pie always has and always will round out my meal on the fourth Thursday in November… it’s just not right if it doesn’t.
I’ve been working on new Sweet Tea delivery systems and decided it was time to explore brines for my birds. It was a beautiful idea for two great reasons, the first being brining a chicken will help prevent it from drying out during the roasting process and two it will help introduce some great flavor and character to the meat. Besides everyone loves chicken right? Get ready for some super moist Sweet Tea Chicken born in the South that is ready over night.
There was a period in the South where everyone knew how to jam, can, preserve and pickle. Southerners knew how to preserve just about everything using all natural household ingredients and every home would have pantries stocked with jars of canned vegetables, fruits and everything in-between. Learning how to pickle, or to brine, is very simple and doesn’t require any special tools. The best part about learning how to pickle is getting to experiment with creating your very own Southern brine recipes.
