snappy lunch

Southern cuisine is unique to America. It’s a combination of hard-scrabble lives, cooking what no one else would eat, and living off the land. How else do you explain mustard greens, fried chicken livers and fatback? But it’s more than food. It’s history, it’s connections, it’s comfort. And, most of all, it’s stories. Stories told around the dinner table, at the bar, on a picnic or after a ballgame.

    we are Mossy Bayou Foods…several great southern specialties. Be glad to send any samples you might like to try.
    Noticed the Snappys sign: There is a Snappy’s Hot Sauce now at the restaurant and available across the street at Mayberry On Main.

    Hey, would you please shoot me an email and advise what foods go over best at your church’s annual High Tea? We are trying on this year at our church and I want to know what works best. I am already committed to making a pound cake and chicken salad in puff pastry cups but I want to do other things, too…

    I love to catch up on your blog, as I don’t read it daily. It is priceless to me and always makes me laugh. It also always makes me want the recipes. What would you suggest would be a good way to save/ copy your stories, recipes and pictures for perpetuity? Thanks. It’d be neat if you were to publish the whole thing in a book…..?;)

      The idea is that it will be a book at some point! I wouldn’t copy anything right now. So glad you like it!

    Hi. I enjoy your blog and love attending the Dickens tea at St. Paul’s. Thanks for doing these.

    Can you please give me the exact name of the tea served at Christmas tea and where to buy it?

    Thanks so much. Faye

    Question: Do you try new products for people and blog about them? I have a grilling and dipping sauce that is in a few stores here in the Nashville area and Georgia. If so I would be glad to send my product to you to sample.
