Oh good...looks like Southern food is the best from the people on this board after all.
Paula Deen's recipes are the only ones that I seem to consistently love. I don't know why, but I do. And they all turn out great, too! Maybe because every one of her recipes says to start with a stick of butter...oink.
I'm stuck in MaidRite land right now where the loose meat sandwiches are king. When I was a kid, I thought they were the best; but, now as an adult, I don't like the quality of their meat...or the cold meat I have been served the 2 times I went to a MaidRite in the past 3 years either. I hate to see MaidRite close because of poor quality control, but looks like it might be headed there.
By the way, when you get a MaidRite it is served with onions..and mustard is the only respectable topping for one traditionally I think.

Not sure I know what qualifies for "Northern" food but my family was a little too english (bland food) for my tastebuds. Southwestern is yummy though. I am not a huge fan of grease and oil but seasonings belong in everything. I tend to like lots of other regional cuisines as well.

I was raised on Midwestern/Southern foods, like fried chicken, meatloaf, etc.

Hardly eat anything fried these days, and I find traditional down home cooking to be too starchy, too greasy, and too bland.

I use lots of garlic, onions, peppers, cilantro, ginger, curry, and herbs, along with fresh/frozen veggies, to add flavor and reduce starch. Cook mostly with canola and olive oils. Use EVOO and balsamic for salads. Tastier, healthier, and lighter...

We pretty much cook the same way. I eat too much fried food or carbs and I start feeling like a sloth.
