Southern USA

Southern cuisine means big, big flavor. Many culinary classics of the American South are known to all: fried chicken, barbecue, biscuits, and sweet potato pie. Some regional favorites are a little more obscure, like smoked country ham and redeye gravy, crayfish etouffee, and Brunswick stew. And then there are local loves that rarely get any play beyond the places where they were born, like Country Captain, Hoppin’ John, and the Louisville Hot Brown. The South’s heat and humidity lead Southerners to excel in the art of canning and preserving. Pickled fruits and vegetables, relishes, and chutneys are indispensable; even barbecue sauce comes down by way of a long line of homemade vinegars. The weather, coupled with a love of hospitality and for gatherings centered around eating, leads to many outdoor food events. The church picnic, oyster roast, the afternoon barbecue, they all bring folks together to socialize over a common and comfortable cuisine.

About me:
I am in car sales, single, and cook to relax. I'm about to turn 40 (but of course only look about 32)! No kids but extremely close knit with my family. I'm getting a miniature long hair dachsund puppy to hang out with me in about two weeks. I live right off of an in town lake here in Oklahoma City and really miss San Antonio Texas. I will retire in the Hill Country some day if it's the last thing I do! Wait...I guess it would be the last thing I did. Haha

Turned out good but not granny worthy good. I can't imagine not using the eggs as one review...

I didn't really care for this. It tasted like a taco salad without the lettuce, cheese and chips.

This was a little to vinegar-y for me so I added about 1/4 sugar and that made an improvement....
