About the Author:
Christy Jordan is the publisher of SouthernPlate.com, a contributing editor to Taste of the South magazine, former editor-at-large at Southern Living, and a judge on the Game Show Network’s Beat the Chefs. She’s appeared on TODAY, Paula Deen, QVC, and a host of other media outlets. She lives with her family in Huntsville, Alabama.
It’s a heartfelt celebration of family dinners—the comforting, delicious food that memories are made of—by the new doyenne of Southern cooking. Christy Jordan’s first book, Southern Plate (William Morrow), has 107,000 copies in print.
Conceived and written to reflect the reality of today’s hectic schedules—and the need to gather around the dinner table—COME HOME TO SUPPER offers more than 200 deeply satisfying dishes that are budget-minded, kid-friendly, and quick. These are the everyday meals that Christy Jordan most loves to cook, and her family most loves to eat, and she serves them up with generous helpings of her folksy wisdom, gratitude, and lively stories.
Many of the recipes make ingenious use of the slow cooker or a single pot or skillet; require easily found supermarket ingredients; and are packed with time-saving tips and shortcuts. And the menu, well, it’s all good, including Crispy Breaded Pork Chops with Milk Gravy, Beef and Broccoli, Spicy Fried Chicken, Craving Beans, Summer Corn Salad, Slow Cooker Baked Apples, Ice Cream Rolls, and Cinnamon Pudding Cobbler. Or to put it like Christy Jordan, food to make your family “smile louder.”
