We are from the South and we know what's cooking in our kitchens. Join us as we share regional secrets from the Natural State, Arkansas. In fact, join us even if you are not from Arkansas, the only requirements here are delicious Southern recipes and true Southern hospitality!

This group just seems to have fallen by the wayside, so I'm in the process of clearing out some of my groups

and...about to leave this one as it seems just about everyone, even the host has left it behind already.

It's A Beautiful Day Un The Neighborhood

Beautiful sun shining and in the 60s today in Arkansas. Hope other parts of the South are doing as well! It's been a long, hard winter for many people and my hope is for all to get to experience the niceness we're having in Central Arkansas. What's cooking on your Sunday menu??? I made braised beef ribs with brown gravy , mashed potatoes, and carrots. I guess my body is still thinking it needs some comfort food. BTW, I bought one of those UP fitness bands and loving it. Anyone got one ????

Good Morning!

Good Morning everyone! My husband and I got caught in the snow yesterday and it took us 5 hours to get home from the northern part of the state last night! Glad to be safe at home and about to make chili and cornbread. Stay warm and hope you are having a great weekend! Dianne

Original??????? should be

I thought the recipes submitted in the "Recipes for Love" were suppose to be the persons/posters 'own original recipe'?????

Did I read that wrong???

I see a lot of recipes summited that are just copies of other recipes.

"1. Enter your original recipe with a simple click... then,"
