Michael's Southern Home Cooking


I'm surprised that I've never written a post about Michael's delicious Southern cooking. He is an excellent cook. His mamma taught him well! While I consider myself a good baker, I'm not that great at regular cooking and unlike him, I have to have an exact recipe to go by. We went to the Farmer's Market Saturday morning and bought fresh okra. We had okra, peas, fried green tomatoes, corn and of course, cornbread. We only eat like this about once a week, otherwise we would both be the size of the house.

  1. Phillip, not only looks wonderful but sounds delicious. Love okra but have not grown it in our vegetable garden... brings back many fond memories of living back east. Tell Michael he can whip some up for us anytime. :)

  6. That looks like the sort of stuff my Grandma in Arkansas used to make! My family roots are Southern on both sides, and I do love the cookin' down yonder.

  7. This plate envies Paula Deen's and I know...I ate at her restaurant. Now all you need is a glass of sweet tea. I put a sprig of mint in mine..have you tried that? I also stole that idea from PD. Looks dee-licious!
