I’m not only a baker, but I’m a savory chef as well! My blog has my favorite southern cooking recipes that I love sharing with you!

Bacon Wrapped Bourbon BBQ Chicken w/ candied jalapeños

Hey ya’ll! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged a savory recipe because I up and opened a bakery… in my converted garage. It’s been a whirlwind finding my rhythm but I think I’m getting there. That being said, I’ve also brought in a line of products with my name on them because I believe…

Easy Scratch Chicken and Dumplings

We just didn’t eat chicken and dumplings when I was growing up. I don’t even think my grandma made them, but when I married my husband, it was something he craved and always asked for. My step mother in law taught me how to make hers, and I adapted it over time trying to make…

Jo’s Chili (no beans)

Honestly, I don’t get into the chili debate over beans or no beans. I do both from time to time, but this one has no beans. You can always add a can of ranch style beans to it and make it with beans if you just gotta have beans in ‘yo chili. This chili has…

I added a few things to this recipe, so that makes it mine, right? Truth be told, there are a lot of recipes for this soup online. All are pretty similar. I added some heat and some sun dried tomatoes to mine. It’s a favorite and since I grow kale pretty successfully in my garden,…

Spaghetti Sauce

I mean, who doesn’t want an Italian red sauce (or gravy) that tastes like it came straight out of someone’s Italian great grandma’s kitchen? Anyone? If you don’t want this recipe, then you must dislike red sauce. Now, this isn’t a weeknight project. It’s definitely something you have to let simmer on low for 8…

I don’t fry stuff very often, but when I do, it’s usually fried chicken breasts. This recipe gives you a juicy chicken breast surrounded by a slightly spicy and sweet crust.
