    Nana’s Buttermilk Biscuits

    If you asked me what I would want as my last meal on earth, Nana’s buttermilk biscuits definitely make my top five. In our family, we all beg for these biscuits when we go to Nana’s, and no trip to her house is complete until we she whips us up a batch with a side of milk gravy and Conecuh sausage. My mouth is just watering thinking about them. In typical grandmother fashion, when we asked Nana for the recipe she answered “ Combine two cups of self-rising flour, some buttermilk, and a little bit of oil until it’s the right consistency.” Well… needless to say it has taken quite…

    Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

    Did I have you at bacon wrapped? I would think so! These bacon wrapped green beans are the perfect side dish to any holiday (or just dinner in general!). They are really easy to make, super tasty, and look really impressive. They’re the perfect addition to dress up any meal. The green beans get a little crispy on the ends and are full of delicious bacon flavor.

    First of all, this is the BEST pound cake ever to exist! Everyone I gave it to also agrees! And no, I’m not bragging about myself; this is my Nana’s recipe. Almost every time I see my Nana I request this pound cake. In college, when I would see her, she would make me one cake to eat now and share with my friends, and one to put in the freezer to save for later. The cake from the freezer always tastes just as good! I added orange to her recipe, and I love how the cake comes out with a thin, crunchy crust all around the outside, while the…

    Alma Mae’s Grilled Soy Wings

    It’s finally fall! Well kind of. Here in Florida it’s still 90 degrees, but football season is back and in full swing, and obviously wings on the weekends are a top priority! Growing up I vividly remember the soy wing recipe my mom got from my great grandmother, Granny Sasser. They quickly became a household favorite, and we would all beg for them on game days. They were sweet and salty and messy, and so, so delicious. Somehow over the years the recipe got lost, but recently, after going through family cookbooks, Granny’s notorious Soy Wing recipe was recovered!  After getting my hands on the recipe, I decided to create…
