Southern Fried Chicken with Cream Gravy with Pan-Roasted Butternut Squash and Turnips and Slow cooked Greens

This chicken was amazing! It had been brined the night before so it was nice and juicy. I loved the Roasted Butternut Squash and I was surprised by the greens.

Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Carolina style BBQ Sauce and Sandwich Slaw

We’ve made so many BBQ’s now, they’re all starting to run together, but what makes the Carolina BBQ special is spice and the vinegar. The slaw was a perfect complement to this sandwich too. I could have eaten 10.

Banana Pudding

Banana Pudding

My mom loved this one. The Banana’s were caramelized by the hot custard.

Fried Green Tomatoes with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

While I was interested to try the fried green tomatoes, I wasn’t fond of the red pepper sauce,

Pecan Encrusted Catfish with Hush Puppies, Mashed Sweet Potatoes, and Succotash

Pecan’s release a lot of oil into the pan making the catfish cook really fast. I may have under-cooked the catfish. The Succotash was interesting. The Hush Puppies were AMAZING. We ate most of them before we plated.

Peanut Brittle

The first batch I made was really really light. I didn’t let the sugar caramelize. The second batch turned out really well though.
