If you plan to cook your own pork, you'll need to start this a day ahead.
Winter is definitely not my favorite time of year. It is generally too cold and dreary for my liking. Sometimes, to take the edge off the chilly days, I like to cook my favorite Brunswick stew. There are a lot of different versions of Brunswick stew and I don't know exactly what category this one falls into, but I hope you'll like it as much as I do. Ingredients 3-4 pounds of cooked pork At least 14 ounces of BBQ sauce (but maybe more depending on your preference) 1 yellow onion, chopped 1 green bell pepper, chopped 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes 1 14-ounce can lima beans, drained 1 14-ounce can of cream style corn I like to cook the pork myself, but you could certainly substitute pre-cooked pork if you choose. If you decide to cook the …

Southern Cheese Straws are among the delicacies suggested by a New York Times article. Add yours.
Thursday, December 6, 2012
Savory Southern recipes can make good holiday gifts, and The New York Times knows it. Times reporter Kim Severson, who is based in Atlanta, has posted an article with some recipes that she intends to give to friends during the season. The article is based on a friendly professional rivalry that Severson has with fellow food critic Julia Moskin. "America has fallen in love with the broad and delicious culinary canon down here, so these gifts will make you seem current. I also wanted to offer recipes that were easy to make in large quantities, sturdy enough to deliver in handsome packages and, mostly, wonderful to eat," Severson writes in the Times. She particularly is fond of the pecan recipe. "Walk into the home of a gracious Southern host…

This dressing recipe is hearty enough to serve as a main dish.
Many, many years ago, we got to my grandmother's house early enough one Thanksgiving for me to see her make the dressing for our Thanksgiving dinner. I watched and learned. As far as I know, she never wrote it down anywhere and I never had either, until I got ready to write this article. You see, there are quite a few things I make by eyeballing ingredients. Some things I add until the recipe looks right, some things until it tastes right and some things until it smells right. In the case of this dressing recipe, it takes a little of all three. -- Got a favorite Thanksgiving recipe you want to share? Post it in the comments below. -- Don’t miss any Suwanee news.
