Old Fashioned Buttermilk Chesspie

Old Fashioned Buttermilk Chesspie

I love custard like desserts and I love pies! I kept seeing this Chesspie recipe in several of the Southern cookbooks I own and online, and I have been wanting to try it since. I found this recipe from Deep South Dish and it seemed unbelievably simple and easy to make. I did love that hint of…

Creamed Corn

Creamed Corn

It’s that time of year again…. CORN SEASON! They are on sale at the grocery store this week for 19 cents each. For me, that means 8 ears of corn for less than $2! And are they ever good right now. They are so sweet and tender, you can eat them as is. Raw, without…

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Candied Sweet Potatoes

I actually cooked this sometime last fall when we havested sweet potatoes from our garden. I just realized, while sorting through my photobucket pics that I never posted it on this blog. I also suddenly got a yearning for some sweet potatoes, which unfortunately, we didn’t get to plant this year. I guess I’ll be…
