Chicken and Dumplings Challenge

c and d

Not many people know much about me, except for the fact that I am a Yankee married to a Southerner who lives in Maryland and likes to cook. After I started working with The Hungry Southerner, I entered into the terrific world of teaching first grade. I never thought that I would wish so much more for extra hours in a day until I spent one full week in the classroom. I love my little kiddies, but I miss my free time. And the kitchen. My poor husband has had two home cooked meals in the past 30 days.

Southern Kitchen – Sweet Tea Roasted Chicken

chicken

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.

Local, Fresh, Sustainable – 5 Seasons Brewing

We continue our quest for local Southerners that are doing things Local, Fresh, and Sustainable and have stumbled upon a marriage of food and brew.  Meet Crawford Moran, the Brewmaster at 5 Seasons Brewing, and a Southerner with a passion for bringing seasonality and sustainability to the micro-brewing industry. We sat down and talked about what makes 5 Seasons so unique including its symbiotic relationship to the farmers with its constantly changing menus, and the constantly rotating styles of beers that will keep your palates busy for years to come.  Throw out all your old notions of what a brew pub is.  The dynamic team of Crawford Moran’s brewing and the fresh, local, seasonal cooking provided by Chef David Larkworthy combine to pay great respect to the wonderful ingredients they are both working with.  A wonderful local Southern discovery that can’t be missed.  Stay Hungry Y’all!

Yankee Challenge: Red Velvet Cake

Growing up my Sisters would watch Steel Magnolias, over and over.  So you can imagine that I’ve managed to see this, modern, Southern classic once or twice.  About midway through the film, there is this great scene where the “mean old” Ouiser is serving the, Armadillo shaped, red velvet groom’s cake, and she chops the tail off and serves it to Tom Skerritt.  Seeing this scene makes me laugh every time, which brings us to this month’s Yankee Challenge. This month you’ll be baking Southern Red Velvet Cake.

Southern Kitchen – Creole Tomato Basil Tart

Tomato Tart

I have a confession, pie and tart crusts are my nemesis.  I’ve been caught red handed, on multiple occasions,  seeking the freezer section for my secret pie recipe.  I’ve decided to conquer said problem, and sort out the “secret to southern tarts“.  As important as the crust is, in a tomato tart, the type of tomato selected is even more important.  It’s the very unique creole tomato, that will always provide a signature warm southern flavor.  These tomatoes were bred to survive the high heat, humidity and strong south Louisiana sun, bringing an intense tomato flavor.  So was my tart a success, failure, or ugly first attempt?
