My name is Christy Jordan and I like to feed people.
I come from a long line of Southern cooks who taught me home cooking is best, life is good, and there is always something to be grateful for. I created Southern Plate so that I could share the recipes and stories that have been passed down through my family for more than nine generations.
You won't find fancy food or new-fangled recipes in this cookbook—just easy, no-fuss Southern favorites such as Chicken and Dumplings, Homemade Banana Pudding, Aunt Looney's Macaroni Salad, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Daddy's Rise-and-Shine Biscuits. (I want to make one thing as clear as possible: How your mama made it is the right way! I'm going to bring it to you how my mama made it, which is the only right way for me.)
These stories and recipes come from my heart. They are a gift from my ancestors, but the ability to have them heard is a gift from you. Take a seat at the Southern Plate table; you're with family now.

“The recipes in Southern Plate made my mouth water! I have never heard of any other school serving peanut butter balls, except for mine—and that was forty-five years ago! This wonderful cookbook made me feel like I was reading something of my own.” (Paula Deen, author of Paula Deen's Savannah Style)
“I’ve been testing these recipes in my own kitchen and every single one turns out to be better than anything my Grandmother ever made. Don’t just buy this terrific book, use it!” (Dorothea Benton Frank, author of Lowcountry Summer and Full of Grace)
“Alabama native Christy Jordan brings Southern hospitality to the next level—it’s no wonder she has such a huge following. I could practically smell the blackberry cobbler baking in the kitchen while thumbing through the pages of this delightful cookbook. Make room at your table Paula Deen, here comes Christy Jordan.” (Joshilyn Jackson, author of Gods in Alabama)
