    Here are some of mine:

    1. Chuckwagon steak sandwiches w/ Coleslaw on top.
    2. Biscuits and milk gravy. I always crumble the biscuits up and pour the
    gravy over the top.
    3. Hominy Grits (The big yelllow ones).
    4. Sage Stuffing. (recipe passed down from my mom).
    5. Bean pone (pinto beans with cornbread crumbled up in them and diced
    onions on top).
    6. Yeast rolls and cinnamon rolls made from the left over dough. (recipe
    also passed down from my mom).
    7. A special recipe for potato salad handed down by my mom. Everyone
    has tasted it always wants me to make it.
    8. Applesauce cake with glaze drizzed on top (also passed down from my
    mom. It is so moist and yummy. At christmas time I add red or green
    food coloring to the glaze. This recipe uses black walnuts which I love.
    We used to gather them when I was a kid. I remember we would lay
    them out in the driveway to dry and then take the skin off and if you
    didn't wear gloves, you sure would get your hands stained.
    9. We always picked blackberries and my mom would make cobbler and we
    would put it in a bowl and pour cold milk over it.
    10. Pecan pie. I can make one in about ten minutes!!
    11. Lemonade.

    My mom cooked with bacon grease. She kept a coffee can on the stove and added bacon drippings. This really gave food a good flavor, but it is something I don't do.

    My apparently make a really good pot of black-eyed peas, because my DH pulls no punches when it comes to food. I only hope he never says this in front of this in front of his mom. She is a true born and bred southen gal. I'm afraid it it way cause a problem.

    My fave meal to eat (but not to cook b/c it's soooo messy and time consuming when I used to have to cook 2 pounds of meat for my family) was chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, cream gravy, green beans, sweet tea and homemade chocolate pie. I don't cook that but once in blue moon anymore since we're trying to lose weight around here.

    My grammy was raised in Arkansas soooo....
    Fried okra, dumplings, buttermilk cornbread, pot beans w/ham. DH had never had any of these foods before we were married. Now he asks for them all the time. It isn't a holiday in our family unless there's dumplings.

    [QUOTE=PAVallygrl;623994]Ok, since I'm a Yank, would someone please tell me what chitterlings are?

    Also known as chitlins or chittlins - they are the small intestines of the pig - generally fried. In the south, historically, they truly used the "whole hog" and not one part of the pig went to waste. Normally considered 'soul food' now. It was one of the portions of the hog that the slaves would get during the hog killing.

    My favorite foods

    Eastern NC BBQ (the best is actually getting the meat off the pig at a pig pickin')
    Hushpuppies
    roasted oysters
    fried shrimp w/tarter sauce
    Brunswick Stew
    Country Fried Steak
    Chicken 'n Dumplings
    Any veggie cooked with fat back or bacon
    Fried Chicken
    Cornbread
    Cheese Grits
    Boiled Shrimp, fresh catch and served with fresh corn on the cob
    Meatloaf w/ mashed potatoes
    Moonpies
