In the past, whenever I've shared a cooking blog or website, the response has been amazing. You've told me that you love those posts and to keep them coming. So, I'm going to do just that. Each Saturday I'm going to spotlight a new-to-me foodie blog or website. And I'll even share some of my favorite recipes too. A lot of you are like me - you enjoy cooking and are always on the lookout for new ideas for the kitchen. I think this will be fun and hopefully you'll enjoy it as well. Feel free to leave me comments and share foodie sites that you've found too!
So to get things started, today I am going to share with you a blog that I've found recently that features Southern cooking. Believe me, you don't have to live in the South to cook Southern food. The name of the blog is Southern Plate and is hosted by Christy Jordan. Like many of us book bloggers, Christy started her blog as a hobby because she loves to cook and she grew up watching her grandmother cook and share stories. Over the last year, her blog has blossomed into one of the most amazing and informative food blogs I have ever visited. In fact, Southern Plate was recently named Best Food Blog by Cotton Spice Quilting Magazine. (Which is a great magazine by the way). Hosting this blog isn't the only thing that keeps Christy busy. She also writes articles for different magazines and newspapers. She has really made a great success of her hobby. I encourage you strongly to take a few minutes and stop by this impressive blog. I guarantee you will find something that catches your eye. Be sure to click on the 'About' tab to read Christy's back story and to learn where some of her inspiration comes from.
Today on Southern Plate you will find a delicious recipe for Simple Tomato Soup. She takes a regular ole can of Campbell's Tomato Soup and turns it into a bowl of wonder by adding just a few simple ingredients. I know I will be trying that recipe very soon!
I really hope you do get the chance to visit Christy's blog and I'd love it if you came back and told me what you think of Southern Plate. I'm looking forward to continuing this Saturday feature on Books and Cooks and sharing my love of food and cooking with you. Bon appetite!
