Recently, I went home to Alabama for a visit. While I was there, I was reacquainted with southern cookin' I grew up with. Some of the things I enjoyed were a dish with fried okra, fried squash with potatoes, onions and cheese, some grits, and sweet tea. Southern sweet tea has sugar as the 2nd ingredient! (Water is first!) When I came back to Missouri, I was missing the Southern cooking. I was pleased to see that our Mid-Continent Library system has many Southern recipe books. So if you would like to try some wonderful southern cookin', check out these books. One title is Southern Heirloom Cooking.
