Her first cookbook is jam-packed with down-home, old-fashioned goodness!  It’s called Southern Plate just like her website and scrumptious recipes such as Chicken and Dumplings, Homemade Banana Pudding, Aunt Looney’s Macaroni Salad, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Daddy’s Rise-and-Shine Biscuits. And of course lots of cozy stories of her home-folks and life in the South. You can find Southern Plate cookbook here! Take a look at her great-grandmother’s fried peach pies below!! Ummm…Yummm!

fried-pies-278-400x300“These are my great-grandmother’s pies. I remember Lela standing in the kitchen humming as she fried these, placing the crispy treats on a paper towel-lined plate next to the stove as she dipped more into the hot oil in her cast-iron skillet. The entire house smelled of peaches because that was her favorite kind of fruit pie.”  Christy Jordan-Excerpt from Southern Plate Cookbook
