My girlfriend used to live in Florida and loved banana pudding when she was there. I’m from the north and I’ve never heard of it, she mentioned it’s a southern thing. I want to make her some because she hasn’t had any since she moved north a few years ago. I’ve looked up some recipes and it seems easy enough but does anyone have any tips or recommendations to make it even better? Thanks!
Out here on the West coast but holding on to my roots as best I can
I live in Los Angeles and am having a tough time finding dried purple hall peas. I’m looking online under other names too “pink-eyed peas” and “southern peas.” No luck. Getting a lot of places to order seeds, but no dried beans.
Today we're talking about a true Southern delicacy that's been a staple of American cuisine for generations: Mississippi Southern Fried Catfish. It's a dish that's as much a part of the culture as it is the cuisine, with its roots in the rich history of the Mississippi Delta. This crispy, golden-fried catfish, dredged in a cornmeal mixture, is the ultimate comfort food, and a true representation of the flavors and traditions of the South.
Hush puppies are as much a part of the southern culinary canon as sweet tea and BBQ. The name "hush puppy" comes from the tradition of tossing these tasty treats to barking dogs to "hush" them up during fish fries and other outdoor gatherings. But why they're so delicious? Well, it's all about the perfect balance of crispy exterior and tender, moist interior, with just the right amount of savory and slightly sweet flavor to complement fried Catfish. Pair them with a cold brewdaddy and you've got yourself a true taste of the south.
I've left recipes for both of these dishes below as well as a cook-along video for those of ya'll who prefer visuals. I hope you dig. Lmk if you have any questions! 🤘🏼 Adam
Cajun-Creole Spice Blend
Hi! I recently ordered creole seafood boil at a restaurant and I was surprised that the sausages and stuff came in a plastic bag. The restaurant owner said that they put the sausages and stuff in the bag and then boil the whole thing (bag included). And to reheat it, I can also reboil the seafood bag. But I shouldn’t microwave it cuz the bag might shrink. Anyways, I was wondering if this practice of boiling seafood-bag and everything- is safe?
I want to like grits. I really do. Multiple times, I see them on a menu, I give them a try. Every time they are flavorless mush.
I add butter. I add cheese. I try them with shrimp. With hot sauce. They always end up a black hole for flavor. In other words, no matter what I eat with them or add to them, they taste like mushy nothing.
Am I doing it wrong? Have I just never been served “good” grits?
Or are they just one of those comfort foods you had to grow up on in order to enjoy?
I am looking for a recipe for fried cornbread. My late MIL always made, but didn’t use a recipe
