When we decided awhile back to move south, I started reading up on Southern Cooking and absolutely fell in LOVE with Southern favorites. My husband often enjoyed the new types of recipes I tried but always asked for the same old PA Dutch favorites that were so traditional to our upbringing. BUT NOW.....he asks when the next new recipe is coming!! YAAY! Of all of the things I've tried this is the one he asks for the most
