As a native Texan, I've been cooking Classic Southern recipes all my life! The truth is, none of these recipes are difficult; in fact, they're perfect for beginner-level cooks! The secret is usually a specific ingredient, seasoning or technique! And I'm happy to share my cooking secrets with you!
Any true Southerner will agree that there's nothing better than a delicious meatloaf, a big batch of cabbage and good ole' cornbread. Whether you're looking for an entree, appetizer or a good soup, stew or Gumbo, I've probably made it a million times with my tried and true recipes.
But don't be fooled! Not all Southern food is fried! Sure, us Southerners can fry ice cubes, but that doesn't mean every recipe is fried! Here you'll find easy, classic Southern recipes that stand the test of time:
- Foolproof Skillet Cornbread
- Rice & Beans
- Chicken Spaghetti
- Salisbury Steak
- Chicken and Dumplings
- Purple Hull Peas
and some fried favorites, too, like:

Other regional recipes include Mississippi Pot Roast, Irish-American Beef Stew, and all kinds of soups--Southwestern Chicken Tortilla, Cream of Mushroom, French Onion and Wonton!
