Delicious Southern Cornbread

Rating: 4 stars 43
Nothing is easier and tastes better with eggs and country ham than good Southern cornbread. If you can find sorghum molasses, use it instead of the honey in this recipe.

Teena's Overnight Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

Rating: 4.5 stars 126
I'm a Southern girl and these are the ultimate buttermilk biscuits. They're easy to make and, the best part is, you put the dough in the fridge the night before to let them rise extra high!

South Georgia Biscuits

Rating: 4.5 stars 64
These are traditional hand-formed South Georgia biscuits as made by my family for generations. Unlike most recipes, these biscuits are formed entirely by hand, not rolled and cut. Once you master the technique, you can make them very quickly and will find the texture and appearance to be much better than rolled biscuits.

Mayonnaise Biscuits

This is a simple but tasty biscuit recipe. You don't taste the mayo, but it gives the biscuits a light and fluffy texture. For rolled and cut biscuits, use just enough milk to hold it together.
