Feeling a little homesick today. Going with it, here are a few of my favorite southern foods. Do you have a favorite? Anything I should add if I made a "southern recipes: part 2" list? Coca cola cake (this recipe seems accurate) Its so very good. I've made it for neighbors and company potlucks. If you want to try it let me know. Love having a reason to bake it!
I grew up going to the Watermelon Festival each summer with my grandparents... Watermelon is definitely my favorite summer fruit. Banana pudding. A requirement when eating pulled pork (see below). I'm partial to the simple recipes with vanilla wafers.
Classic onion rings. Recipe here. Pulled pork. Dukes BBQ in South Carolina has the best, always served with hash and rice and of course sweet tea. Since I can't find it locally I make it in the crockpot.
