My favorite gift idea includes: a dozen country ham biscuits, a dozen buttermilk biscuits, a half-dozen cocoa & cream cookies, traditional pimento cheese, and Edward's country bacon slices.


If you are looking for a delicious Father's Day brunch, my father's "waffle waffle waffle! recipe is a must" His waffle recipe was to mix together pancake mix from the box with a can of creamed corn.

My California-born husband claimed he did not to like fried food but he gobbles up the Kitchen Sink Pan-Fried Pork Chops every time.

I will never forget how out-of-this-world good Mrs. Burns and Amy's Country Fried Steak is, which I usually serve it sprinkled with chopped green onions and with an arugula salad on the side.

Simple Citrus Flank Steak is a simple yet flavorful marinade and then a fast grill. Quick and easy!

Pimento Cheese Shrimp and Grits Recipe -  I put this recipe together one Father’s Day for my dad, a Lowcountry boy who loves his shrimp.

Lime Zest Grilled Shrimp is another tribute to my father's love of seafood.

Crab cakes are one of my and my dad’s favorite things so I love to spice it up with a delicious Smoked Tomato Remoulade Recipe.

This Brown Sugar-Bourbon BBQ Sauce is the perfect thing to top off a grill master's ribs, wings, pulled pork or other BBQ creations.


Buffalo Cauliflower Dip - This is my heathier version of a buffalo chicken dip that is just as delicious and pairs perfectly with the new Callie's Hot Little Biscuit sea salt biscuit crackers!

I picked Krysten's Collards & Brussels Sprout Salad because it is like my husband - a Southern staple prepared like a California salad.

Roasted Rosemary Lemon Broccoli is the perfect vegetable to add to the meat-lovers' meal.

If you have a piecrust in your freezer, you can put the Caramelized Vidalia Onion Galette - a simple showstopper - together in a snap.


With the Biscuit Berry Nest dessert, you get the feel of a cobbler but with a unique presentation. 

My entire family – John included – cannot get enough of a summery Shortcake Sheet Cake! The recipe (as well as a savory-sweet breakfast option) is in our Shortcake Biscuit Mix recipe round up here.
