Chef's Backyard Moscato-Melon Chiller

This uber fruity/zesty cocktail is a synch to whip together. Major kudos to Chef John O'Larnic of Chef's Backyard for his Moscato-Melon Chiller - a grandiose display of summertime sweetness that's just as refreshing as it looks!

Cocktails

Martini Reviver

This martini by Adam Ford is actually the recipe for the original Martini (called the Turf Cocktail) in the 1884 Bar Keeper's Handbook. This version revives the original drink to a sublime experience. Full bodied, floral, and a colorful amber. From his new book, Vermouth: The Revival of the Spirit That Created America's Cocktail Culture.

Entrees

Apple and Avocado Chicken Salad

If you're an avocado lover like me, you won't be disappointed. This is a creamy and refreshing chicken salad made without mayo. It's good on toast, or simply on a fork. Many thanks to Chef Julie Yoon for sharing the recipe!

Starters

Good Ole Boys Boudain Balls

Some of the best Boudain Balls around with a famous seasoning from my friends at Good Ole Boys! This recipe makes more than the average family needs, but stop at the number of balls you want & use the rest of the Boudain as a side dish or to eat with crackers & a cold beer. Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Sides

Cheesy Biscuit Bombs

Use your favorite biscuit recipe along with some clever 'enhancements' to create these ultra cheesy biscuit bombs! They're downright addicting! This recipe makes 8.

Sides

Cornmeal Biscuits

These buttermilk biscuits have just a little “oomph” to hold up meals that feature pork chops or fried chicken. They're also fantastic holders of butter and homemade jam if you want to serve breakfast for dinner.

Desserts

Grapefruit Meringue Pie

Clouds of fluffy meringue enhance nearly any pie, but they are especially delightful over a sweet, tangy filling based on grapefruit juice that is exceptional.

Desserts

Warm Strawberry Cobbler

Strawberries always seem to get shortchanged in the cobbler area in favor of shortbread. No more! I love the rustic way this dish is prepared and served in a cast-iron skillet. You will too.

>

 

Entrees

Mustard-Smeared Roasted Pork Shoulder

This is a great make-ahead recipe. It slow-roasts in the oven the day before, then can be served any way you want. Try it over a bed of creamy, hot grits. Leftovers make great sandwiches for Monday’s lunch.

>

 

Entrees

Spinach and White Bean Chicken

Fresh spinach is such a terrific ingredient. It cooks up fast, looks great, and is loaded with vitamins and minerals that elevate it to nutritional powerhouse status. It tops this balsamic vinegar–basted chicken with panache!

>

 

Starters

Southern Fried Pears

Why should apples always get the side-dish glory when pears are just as fantastic? Of course, you can use this recipe as your guide for frying apples, but switch the orange juice to lemon. Whether you peel the fruit or not is up to you!

Desserts

Mama's Frozen Fruit Salad

Maybe it’s been awhile since you made and served this Southern classic. Maybe it’s time to give it another look. There’s a reason it’s still popping up at mealtime, especially in the heat and humidity of the summer. This cool-me-off-in-an-instant dish can be served as a salad, side, or dessert. Green maraschino cherries will add a hint of mint flavor.

Salads

Summer Crowder Pea Salad

A trip to the farmers’ market just got a lot more interesting. This recipe is as nice with black-eye or purple hull peas. Serve this dish with an all-vegetable dinner or with any type of pork, thanks to the sweet fruit addition.
