On my foodie forum, someone mentioned that the "Dean boys" show was created to make everyone else feel better about themselves...

If I wanted to see two southern frat boys, I'd go to the RNC :-)

Southern cooking is, indeed, the best, in my opinion... You know you're in a good restaurant when they have country ham on the breakfast menu.... (and it's the real thing)

Have you heard the one about the yankee who went into a deep south restaurant to have breakfast. He ordered bacon and eggs and the waitress then asked him if he would like grits with his meal. Being from the north and not knowing what grits were but not wanting to show his ignorance he says great bring me two of them.

Northerner: "I'll have some grits."

Southern waitress: "Hominy?"

Northerner: "Two or three should be enough."

You know the four food groups in the south are salt, sugar, grease and alcohol? I've spent my entire life in the south and can vouch for this!

The deep fried cheese stuffed ground bacon burger was pretty darn close to that.

My ex's family still mocks me for putting honey and butter in my grits. I grew up with it being like oatmeal, sweet not savory.

Paula Deen's son was asked what his mom's favorite ingredient was and he said, "butter..." and if you've watched her show you know it's true! She was cooking something once and said, "it only has a half stick of butter so it counts as a diet recipe!"

After seeing her show I realized why people started making "light" versions of traditional classics...hehe

But I did learn how to make a good fried chicken and amazing biscuits! Between her and alton brown...i take the best of their advice...

Oh my gosh! I haven't seen Maid-Rite's since I was in Newton, IA 15 years ago. My mom was from that area, so my grandma would take us for Maid-Rite's when visited. Loved them.

Mom couldn't cook southern style when she married dad, but through the years she learned pretty well how to do it. She had lots of teachers since dad had 4 sisters. When I married, I took my DW to visit my aunt to learn how to make biscuits. No such thing as a measuring cup, just a little flour, glob of lard, some buttermilk squeezed through her fingers, got it honey? Well no, but after a few screw ups, she did get it down. Of course DW grew up in the south, but in the city the girls weren't taught to cook like the country gals were. DW is now a great cook, a nice blend of styles to fit her personal tastes.

I love southern cooking, but I love Italian too, and German, and ... I love it all if it's done well. It's amazing I'm not grossly overweight the way I love to eat. Lean genes I suppose.

I always wondered what a loose meat sandwich was. It looks tastier than it sounds.

Swell, I was just forced by this thread to make this:

INGREDIENTS:

* 1/2 pound pork sausage
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2 1/4 cups water
* 3/4 cup quick grits
* 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
* 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
* 1 cup milk
* 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
* 4 large eggs

PREPARATION:
In a heavy skillet, brown sausage, breaking up with spatula. Drain off excess fat; set aside. In a saucepan, bring salted water to a boil and stir in grits. Cover, reduce heat to low, and continue cooking for 5 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour, pepper and milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add cheese, stirring until blended. Add sausage and half of the cheese sauce to cooked grits. Pour mixture into lightly greased casserole. With back of a large serving spoon, ake 4 indentations in grits. Break an egg into each indentation. Bake at 325° for 15 to 18 minutes, or until eggs are done as desired. Reheat remaining cheese sauce to serve with grits and eggs.

I think I gain weight just watching her cook! I've done some of her recipes, and they've come out great! We're going to Savannah in late April, and we're going to her restaurant, as well as her brother's. I can hardly wait! YUM!!!
If you are heading to Savannah, I would suggest Elizabeth's on 37th, one of the oldest and most highly regarded restaurants in the city. I have heard good things about the Pink House as well. Have a great trip, it is a beautiful city!
