After reading recipedawgs blog I got thinking about Sunday Dinners.  There are so many memories with Sunday dinners whether dinner after church or just enjoying a meal on a Sunday with the entire family.  I am interested in compiling members favorites Southern Sunday Dinner dishes.   One of my friends has lived in SC and tells me her favorites are Baked Chicken along with all the sides but she really enjoyed the pinto beans her mom made with the Southern Sunday Dinner.   As you can see I am not originally from the South, but the way I prepare my collards friends ask if i am sure I am not from the South.  Please share your favorite Southern Sunday Dinner recipes and ideas.

My favorite Sunday dinner has got to be fried chicken, mashed potatoes, white "milk" gravy, corn, and rolls with butter. My aunt/godmother and mother used to make this for the family often. I don't care to fry the chicken so I have a wonderful oven-fried chicken recipe that is so simple, and it leaves drippings I can use for the milk gravy. I don't usually cook with a recipe, but here is how I cook the chicken (sorry for the sketchy instructions). I season with Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning. Sort of a seasoned salt with a light cajun kick. Oven Fried Chicken Pre-heat oven to 350. Wash and pat dry chicken parts of your choice (I prefer skin on but you can use skinless). Toss chicken parts in flour, season as you wish, and place skin-side down in a glass baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and scrape oil and drippings from pan. Place chicken skin- side up back into drained pan and return to oven for an additional 10-30 minutes, depending on the size of the pieces. If the chicken pieces seem fatty, I will use a rack for the second cooking time so that the grease will drain.

My favorite Southern Sunday dinner is definately Fried Chicken, Mashed potatoes with gravy, Collard greens and rolls. With a sweet potato pie for dessert. Or blueberry cobbler. Yummy!

Wow, fried chicken is such a comfort food and so delectable done correctly. I remember watching my mother fry chicken. Now my sister always makes me a fried chicken dinner for my birthday. So, my favorite Southern Sunday dinner would be my mother's fried chicken, milk gravy, rice and green beans cooked with some bacon fat. (Hey, if we are reminiscing here, let's not count calories!) I would finish it with my mother's Apple Betty Pie. Heaven on earth.

I love chicken of any kind with dressing (some call it stuffing - whatever.) And don't forget the devilled eggs - just 'cause it's Sunday doesn't mean you can't eat them. Ha!!

Pot Roast cooked with potatoes, carrots and onion. Buttermilk biscuits with honey. Homemade ice cream (peach is my favorite) for dessert. My mom's midwestern version of manna from heaven!

About Me
I have always made about 15 varieties of Christmas cookies throughout the years. I dabbled in other baked goods but in the last couple of years baking has become my passion. I have always liked to cook and try new things. We would have company over and I would try a new recipe and my sister was always worried it would not turn out. Most of the time it did.
My favorite things to cook
I am always trying out new recipes and I love so many of the recipes I get from this website that I cannot decide what my favorite things are to cook.
