I absolutely love grits. I don’t know how old I was the first time I had them, but I was young enough for their deliciousness to be engrained in my mind forever. My parents and both sets of grandparents made them almost every weekend, and often loaded them up with cheese. So as far as I’m concerned, cheese grits are the only way to go.
Did y’all know that August is National Peach Month? Best month ever! This time of year, nothing beats farm-fresh peaches. I stock up at the farmer’s market every weekend. So this week, I’m sharing some of my favorite peachy recipes, on here and over on Instagram. I’m starting with something everyone loves sipping on: peach iced tea!
I’m back with another delicious recipe for National Strawberry Month! Check out my Simply Southern Strawberry Jam recipe while you’re here, too!
There is hardly a drink more refreshing on a hot summer day than lemonade (with the exception of sweet tea, of course). It’s a cul-de-sac classic that everyone at any age can enjoy, at almost any occasion, and it’s easy to adjust to other people’s flavor and taste preferences.
I don’t know about y’all, but I could definitely live on macaroni and cheese. It is its own food group in my diet and I am 1000% not ashamed of that.
There’s never a bad time for mac and cheese, if you ask me. Lunch, dinner, mid-afternoon snack…in college, I sometimes even had mac and cheese as a mid-morning snack. There was a cafe in the student center that had some pretty delicious mac and cheese, and I didn’t always want to wait until “real” lunch time to have some.
Did you know that May is National Strawberry Month? That’s a “holiday” I can get behind, especially now that strawberries are in season! So for the month of May, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite strawberry recipes, and I hope y’all will share some of your favorites, too!
I’m kicking it off with one of my favorites: strawberry jam.
I absolutely love strawberry jam. It’s one of my kitchen staples. I always have a jar on hand because it’s delicious with pretty much anything, at any meal of the day. And as good as some store-bought brands are, nothing beats a jar of homemade strawberry jam.

Pimiento cheese is a Southern staple and necessity at almost any event that requires food. I remember helping my mom grate cheese as young as three years old (don’t worry, she supervised). So you could say pimiento cheese is in my blood.
It’s really the perfect food for any occasion. Tailgate? Pimiento cheese with crackers or pita wedges. Cold, gray rainy day? Grilled pimiento cheese sandwich. Just got dumped? Grab a spoon and chow down. Okay that’s a little weird, but you get the idea. There really isn’t a bad time for pimiento cheese.
