THE Bacardi Rum Cake.....adjusted for today's box cake mixes

THE Bacardi Rum Cake.....adjusted for today's box cake mixes by Salad Foodie

Several years ago Bacardi’s Rum Cake recipe used an 18 ½ ounce cake mix and box of instant vanilla pudding mix. Not long after that box cake mixes were developed with “pudding in the mix” which now are known as “super moist” or “deliciously moist.”…

Red beans and rice

Red beans and rice by John Spottiswood

I've adapted this recipe from a number that I have used in the past. You can deviate from this and it is still delicious! Normally, I serve this with a jerk marinated chicken or pork, but it also goes well with grilled fish, steak and many other treats. If you serve it with something that isn't spicy, try adding some of the spices…

Southern Low Country Boil

Southern Low Country Boil by Robyn Medlin

Here’s a little history on the “Low Country”. Low Country, and this is my own definition, is the lower coastal region of South Carolina and the Georgia Coast. Think of Charleston and Savannah ya’ll and all the great seafood you can get there with all the cultural influence of those areas thrown in! Now that’s low country cookin! So…

Southern Corn Bread

Southern Corn Bread by Salad Foodie

I was hesitant to try this because it was different than any corn bread I’ve ever made. The proportion of corn meal to flour for one, and then hardly any sugar. Now having made it I’ve decided southerners have it all right about corn bread, and I prefer this to the usual sweet variety. I like to use one third of the cornmeal as…

Southern Coconut Cake

Southern Coconut Cake by Salad Foodie

Rose Levy Branbaum's "Heavenly Cakes" (2009) was the inspiration for trying something new for our springtime desserts. The cake batter was made from her Southern Coconut Cake recipe, but I used a traditional buttercream frosting. Everyone agreed the cake was just like Rose said - heavenly! I have simplified some of the steps.…

Atlanta Brisket

Atlanta Brisket by Robyn Savoie

Atlanta Brisket is a braised, southern dish featuring boxed onion soup mix, ketchup, and Atlanta’s own Coca-Cola. In this recipe I replaced the artificial-tasting soup mix with sautéed onions and garlic powder, brown sugar, and dried thyme. To ensure that the brisket was seasoned throughout, pierced it with a fork and salted it…

Chow-Chow Relish

Chow-Chow Relish by Salad Foodie

Fall's green tomatoes are a perfect base for a batch of chow-chow. This pickled relish or condiment is lip-smacking good on hotdogs, hamburgers, fish, poultry, beans - oh, just everything! This version is a fusion of a friend's recipe and several others I compared it to, and I really like the results! A stash of 6 pints or 12…

Fried Corn

Fried Corn by Deidra

This is my interpretation of a favorite childhood dish. My late great-grandmother used to make fresh creamed corn with corn straight from her garden. It was my favorite thing to eat as a child. This version adds bacon and a bit of chili powder to liven things up.

Mom's Homemade Peach Dumplings

Mom's Homemade Peach Dumplings by Syi

This recipe was given to me by my mom. When it comes to pies & cobblers, I'm considered a "crust snatcher" as I love the crusts more than the fruit or filling; and when I see a cobbler, I'll cut into it and lift out all of the crust and just leave the fruit and juice for everyone else (if given the chance)! LOL!! So this recipe is…

Buttermilk Cornbread with Green Chilies and Cheese

Buttermilk Cornbread with Green Chilies and Cheese by Salad Foodie

It’s hard to stop at just one serving of this, so if you have a hungry crowd coming, double the recipe! I love to bake cornbread in a cast iron skillet to get that crispy crust, but a 9" square baking pan will make good cornbread too.

Carolina Coast Shirmp Bog

Carolina Coast Shirmp Bog by John Spottiswood

A bog (unlike a pilau) is any stew that includes wet, soggy rice. This recipe was adapted from one of my favorite cookbooks, Stews, Bogs, and Burgoos by James Villas. I've left out the bacon for health reasons. It is delicious as is, but would undoubtedly be even more tasty with the bacon.
