For a little bit of sugar, a little bit of spice. For some morsels, tidbits, and cooking advice. For the completely clueless, those smarter than me, and of course, for those who want to be...all they can be. There are few things in life that really matter. Family, friends, and whether or not you know how to make yeast rise.
"You all know, and we won't let anyone forget it, that the South is a legend on top of a legend on top of a legend. Just read the stories of Eurdora Welty...William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Truman Capote, and Tennessee Williams. They all tell us...that our good times are the best, our bad times are the worst, our tragedies the most extraordinary, our characters the strongest and the weakest, and our humblest meals the most delicious...and we always cook enough food for unexpected company. Cooking food, laughing, and story telling -- that's what we're made of and that's what we enjoy the most." --Ernest Matthew Mickler, author of White Trash Cooking (Inland Book Company 1986)
