I’m quite particular when it comes to cookbooks, especially Southern cookbooks. For instance, my favorite most recently purchased book is John Besh’s “My New Orleans”. It’s a beautiful compilation of amazing images, stories and delicately executed recipes. It seems to me everyone these days has turned around and published a cookbook, most of those books being just down right awful. Southern My Way : Simple Recipes, Fresh Flavors by Gena Knox thankfully is not one of those books.

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 great pulled pork recipe that would be easy to do at home that doesn’t involve a crockpot. Not that a crockpot can’t make pulled pork, but I wanted pulled pork that also had texture; a bark on the outside almost as if it had been smoked. To get this Boston Butt right I needed to do it in the oven, and I needed the perfect dry rub. Which got me thinking, why not try a Coffee Dry Rubbed Boston Butt for a little cool weather pulled pork action?
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.
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.
