Chicken and dumplings are a Southern staple. They’re one of those dishes that is pure, classic comfort food and there are loads of different methods to make them out there. I think we even have a couple recipes for them on this site already.

Funnily enough, this isn’t a dish I grew up eating because my mom never made it once. (I called and checked!) But growing up in the South, there were plenty of other places to find it, including local restaurants and friends’ kitchens, so I get a hankering for it now and then.

When I put this one together last night, Heather and I both agreed that I’d achieved greatness. Or as one of our friends back in Ohio always says, I put my foot in it ! I hope your family loves it as much as we do. Happy eating, y’all!

Like most of you, we lead busy lives. That’s why we love throwing dinner in the slow cooker before we head out the door in the morning, only to come back at night and everything is ready to eat. Although not all slow cooker recipes are created equal, this one is delish, and more than a tad spicy, especially if you use our homemade salsa verde to prepare it. To tame the heat, make sure you add in sour cream. Just in time for game day, we hope you enjoy it! Read more of this post

If you grew up in the South like I did, you know that every time there is a gathering, whether it is for a wedding, funeral or even a community picnic, someone will undoubtedly bring a casserole dish filled with chicken spaghetti. It is simply one of those staples that every Southern woman (and many of the men) seems to know how to make, and everyone’s recipe is just a bit different from the last. Here’s my take on this comfort food staple, with just a dash of Texas heat thrown in for good measure. I hope you love it! Read more of this post
