Southern Style Desserts:

Chocolate Meringue Pie – My great-grandfather loved these.  This recipe makes two pies, one for your dinner party (or friend’s house)…and one for YOU to keep!

Red Velvet Cake – DEEP South recipe…If you’ve only had Red Velvet from your local grocery store or God-forbid Pepperidge Farm’s frozen version…you’ve never had a real Red Velvet cake.  This bad-boy recipe is from scratch and is RED…I mean RED, RED, RED.  Cut the pieces small too, it’s rich.

Old Fashioned Tea Cakes – In case you don’t know, these are cookies.  Semi-sweet, flat, light, delicious cookies.  You’ll rarely find these in any cook book…but you will find them here!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake – The last pound cake recipe you’ll ever use.  …and the top of the cake…oh my.
