Southern food brings comfort like nothing else on earth. There’s no better way to welcome a new neighbor or support a new mom, no more reliable cure for whatever ails you than classic comfort food—whether you make it like Mama or use every shortcut in the book.
Your go-to comfort food recipes likely say a little something about where you grew up. Shrimp and grits or she-crab soup? You’re probably from South Carolina. King Ranch Casserole or chicken-fried steak? Tell all the folks back in Texas we said hey.
Of course, some Southern food crosses all regional boundaries. In kitchens from Baltimore to El Paso, you’ll find worn copies of comfort food recipes for pot roast, fried chicken, pound cake, buttermilk biscuits, and macaroni and cheese. The good news? They’re all right here at Carolyn’s Southern Comfort Cuisine.
