It’s no secret that good ol’ southern cooking produces some great food. And luckily, you don’t have to be from the south to appreciate it. Or to cook it. We love trying out southern-style recipes, and here are four that we’ve fallen absolutely head over heels for. Whether it’s cake, casserole, or chicken, there’s something here for everyone. We know you’ll love these recipes just as much as we do!
If you have spent any time in the south, this caramel cake will look familiar to you – and will probably have you drooling if it’s left in your presence. A true southern-style caramel cake is made up of a moist, lightly sweetened yellow cake that tastes light and fluffy, but that really acts as more of a vehicle for getting the rich, delicious caramel icing into your mouth as quickly as possible. Our icing takes no more than fifteen minutes, but is everything you want from the classic southern caramel glaze! Click here for the recipe!
You know those dishes that are just comforting? You know, the ones that are warm and bubbly, filling, taste amazing and just make you feel good? Well we’ve got one of those for you today. Southern smothered chicken. That’s right, this is a good ol’ fashioned chicken and rice recipe, but this one’s been reinvented a bit to have maximum flavor. Trust us, you’ll love it.

Squash isn’t everyone’s favorite food, but we think this cheesy and creamy casserole is a great way to win over some squash skeptics. This is a wonderful side dish to a meal and a great potluck contribution. A heaping scoop of this piping hot from the oven is sure to satisfy a hungry crew. Click here for the recipe!
While you don’t usually hear the words “cheddar cheese” and “pineapple” in the same sentence – and no, we’re not talking about pizza – this is a sweet and savory side dish that totally takes your dish to the next level. The ingredient list might seem a little confusing at first, but bear with us: the end result is a crunchy, cheesy, fruity combo that, once you put everything together, really works!
