Recipes From the Ol' South

Southern Fried Chicken

Southern Fried Chicken

Most of the recipes here came from one of the best Southern cooks...my mom.

She's no longer with us but she left me a treasure...the love of cooking and her little box with dozens of her recipes.

She taught me that Southern cooking is not difficult. It's just a little different.

Southern cooking uses a lot of sugar and cooking oil. Frying is used extensively, thus Southern food is not low fat. It is not meant to be. It is intended to be rib-sticking and tasty.
