Holiday Cornbread Dressing

holiday cornbread stuffing-sara_shoot5_0291

This moist and flavorful cornbread dressing—or what you non-Southerners may call stuffing—appeared in Martha Stewart Living, and it remains one of our most requested recipes at the Market. The mix of pillowy egg bread and crusty, grainy cornbread is a real winner. Try stirring in leeks and wild mushrooms in spring or oysters and hot […]

Salt and Pepper Skillet Cornbread

Some Southerners will happily argue till they are blue in the face defending the honor of unsweetened cornbread, a preference that tends to divide the South from the North. But I find that a touch of sugar adds a layer of complexity that is well worth breaking the rules. More important to me is the […]

I like those dishes, of course, but the fact is there is something wonderful about making fried green tomatoes the way my mother and grandmother made them- that is, […]

Fresh Mozzarella Salad with Avocado, Roasted Corn and Grape Tomatoes

I tasted fresh mozzarella for the first time when I loved to New York City in the ’80s. Growing up in Tennessee, I’d had only the mozzarella you find in grocery stores; that was considered “gourmet cheese” in our house. As with the first time I tasted fresh herbs, roasted peppers, or asparagus that didn’t […]

Dilly Snap Beans

making dilly beans-sara_shoot3_0335

My dad used to make these crisp and vinegary dilly beans every summer, in those fleeting moments between the time the bean bushes bear fruit and the grazing deer eat their fill. My sister has since taken over this tradition, and the few precious jars she gives us each year are worth their weight in […]
