You always need a gravy recipe for your fresh hot biscuits. As a life long southerner, gravy and biscuits are a staple in my house. Eggs are eaten everyday in my house. Omelets are easy to make and can be filled with just about any savory meat or vegetable. I make omelets when I need to clean out the refrigerator. Everyone picks their filling and it becomes a family affair. Pancakes can be made into just about any flavor imaginable. We love savory and sweet pancakes for breakfast. I also serve savory pancakes for lunch and dinner. I always make a double batch of pancakes to keep in the freezer. Reheat the pancakes in the microwave or toaster and breakfast is ready in a flash.

Most French toast recipes are easy to make and can be assembled the night before. Coffee cakes make a great breakfast but are also good for snacks and desserts. They are easy to make and can be made in a wide variety of flavors.
There is no reason to run to the drive thru for a quick sandwich when you can make a delicious sandwich at home. Included are some of our tasty and quick favorite sandwich recipes.

I like to make as many items from scratch as possible. Homemade recipes are budget friendly and I know what I am feeding my family. Prepared foods are loaded with sodium and many ingredients that I do not want to feed my family. Many recipes I have used for years but it is nice to have them all in one handy reference book. This is an excellent cookbook and reference source for beginning cooks, new brides and for anyone who loves cooking from scratch.
I love cooking for my family and friends. The information and recipes in this book are from decades of cooking experience. Everyone knows my freezer and pantry are always full. Family and friends know they are always welcome at my table. Single family members and friends tend to drop by for a quick meal or dessert. Having a full pantry and freezer makes it easy to make quick meals and share memories with them.
If you are looking for gourmet recipes or fancy ingredients, this is not the book for you. This is homemade and homestyle cooking at it best.
Stocking a freezer or pantry can be overwhelming in the beginning. It is also expensive to buy everything needed at one time. Stock your freezer and pantry a few items at a time. When I first started stocking my pantry, I spent an extra $5 each week on items for the pantry. Start slowly and steadily increase your pantry items. If you are making rice, make double the amount and freeze the extra. If you are browning ground beef, cook a double batch and freeze the extra meat. Start slowly and steadily increase your freezer meals based upon your freezer space, time and money.
Casseroles are a huge favorite in my house. I make casseroles several times a week. They are perfect for busy families. Casseroles can be made ahead and reheated when ready to eat. On days where life does not allow us to eat together, a casserole is perfect.
I love to bake and cook in a 9 x 13 pan. I use these pans everyday. I highly recommend having several 9 x 13 baking pans with covers if possible.

Don't think soups and sandwiches are just for the cold winter months. I have included cold sandwiches along with cold soups for those scorching summer days. Soup & sandwich meals take the guess work out of What's For Dinner. For families with different schedules, most soups can be reheated and sandwiches made ahead or when ready to eat. If you don't have time to cook, there are plenty of fuss free soups and sandwiches that can be made in no time.
Sweet biscuits or scones are mainly served at brunch or holiday breakfast in the south. I like to make them on the weekend and serve with scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage for a lazy day breakfast.
This cookbook is a compilation of recipes previously published in my southern cookbooks plus 40 new recipes that I have never published in this compilation. Now you have every biscuit recipe in my southern heritage in this great southern biscuit and scone collection.
Potatoes make a great side dish, meal and even dessert.

I have included numerous variations for potato salads, french fries, soups and mashed potatoes. There is no reason to eat boring mashed potatoes or french fries again.
