A new favorite

Sometime during the past year I discovered a new blog that I have really enjoyed. It is called Southern Plate and is written by an Alabama girl named Christy Jordan. If you live south of the Mason-Dixon line you may have heard of her, but some of my readers live far to the north or even out of the country, so you may not have had the opportunity. Christy states that she loves to feed people and her blog has lots of recipes as well as many lovely stories about her immediate and extended family. Although she has only been blogging for a few years her blog has become hugely successful and she had the opportunity to publish a cookbook which just came out last fall, shortly before Christmas.

Guess what? I asked for the book and DH bought it for me for a Christmas present. I know that I really don't need another cookbook, but I have enjoyed her blog so much that I wanted to support her endeavor.

I have tried a number of her recipes and will link to two of them here today. After you read them you might just want to sign up for her blog.

One of our new favorites is this Chicken and wild rice casserole that you cook in the crockpot. While it is not particularly interesting to look at, it is very easy and very tasty. I have made it at least three times. It works great for Sunday dinner.

Another one that I tried recently is this Frozen Cranberry Banana salad. I cut the recipe in half and found that it made twelve servings. It made a nice fruit salad to serve with Sunday dinner.

I hope you will visit the Southern Plate site and enjoy it as much as I have.

    Becka ~ I was introduced to this site by my sister last year and put it on my google reader. When I stayed overnight with Bet back in October on my way to and from Florida, she had bought the cookbook, and I loved looking at it as much as I could while I was there. Needless to say, I put it on my Christmas list, and she gave me a copy! I’ve enjoyed reading through it but haven’t made anything yet…I’m in a rut with my recipes so I should try something from it for sure!
