About this item

My name is Christy Jordan and I like to feed people.

I come from a long line of Southern cooks who taught me home cooking is best, life is good, and there is always something to be grateful for. I created Southern Plate so that I could share the recipes and stories that have been passed down through my family for more than nine generations.

You won't find fancy food or new-fangled recipes in this cookbookjust easy, no-fuss Southern favorites such as Chicken and Dumplings, Homemade Banana Pudding, Aunt Looney's Macaroni Salad, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Daddy's Rise-and-Shine Biscuits. (I want to make one thing as clear as possible: How your mama made it is the right way! I'm going to bring it to you how my mama made it, which is the only right way for me.)

These stories and recipes come from my heart. They are a gift from my ancestors, but the ability to have them heard is a gift from you. Take a seat at the Southern Plate table; you're with family now.

If you have sworn off buying another cookbook(like I had) or just don't think you need another one, let THIS one be the last you own! This cookbook is unique: the recipes are easy, quick, and practical. You will find yourself saying over and over again, "Oh, I've always wanted a recipe for that!" Christy also adds a cupful of her good humor, kindness, and creative writing skills to her cookbook. It's not "just" a recipe book: its a book that really will make you feel like family.

I checked this out from the library first, then decided that I needed to have my own copy of this great cookbook. It isn't just a cookbook though ... it has interesting stories about Christy Jordan's life and all from a Southern perspective. You will enjoy reading and cooking and eating!

I've been a follower of Christy Jordan's website southernplate.com for over a year now .. I've been fascinated by all the delicious recipes on her site so when I heard she was writing a cookbook, I jumped for joy! I knew it was going to be a great book but when I finally got it in my hands and looked it over, it met so many of my expectations and much more. True southern cooking, even truer stories about where the recipes come from (generations deep recipes). Some recipes I recognized from my Mama's cooking growing up .. how sweet the memories! I recommend this cookbook to anyone who is tired of the same ol', same ol' southern cookbook and wants something 'fresh' in their cookbook repertoire! Thank you, Christy for writing this book .. =)
