Appetizers Dressings Easy Pickles

Make mine Deep Fried… with a side of deep fried

Everyone in the world makes fun of people from the South. It hasn’t helped much that every.. single.. food program wants to do a segment on what us silly Southerners are deep frying this time. It’s hurtful. Why not talk about any number of the world-class chefs that operate out of the South, or that […]

Shandy Glazed Spare Ribs

Shandy – typically, a wheat beer with lemon / lime soda mixed into it. So, one day while sorting through a “mix-ur-own-6pk” allotment at the market, I came across several different makers of shandys –  I threw in a couple to try out. I know why I thought I’d like it. Back when everyone lived […]

Appetizers Cheese Easy

Mad Dogs, Englishmen and a Lump of Cream Cheese

Appetizers Curb Market Crawl Dips

Curb Market Crawl – Groundnuts

Groundnuts – Goober Peas – Hillbilly Caviar… Peanuts. I headed out Hwy 52 West towards Elijay to check in on R & A Orchards.
