Hot food and delicious aromas from these three recipes might put a smile on your face
Southern Comfort Food

Southern comfort food has "comfort" in its name for a reason.

Southern comfort food is what your aunt in Georgia makes when you finally make the trip down to see her, or maybe it’s what you miss ever since you moved north (or west). No matter which recipe you’re enjoying, it almost always has three things going for it: it’s hot, it’s high in calories, and it’s cooked with butter. But the style of cooking is called “comfort food” for a reason, and when you’re feeling low due to work stress or personal drama, it’s always nice to cook a batch of fried chicken and leave your problems where the delicious aroma can’t touch them. Read on for three Southern comfort foods you should try out next time you’re in need of a hug.

Cheesy Grits

Grits are a Southern staple, and cheese is beloved all over the country. What a winning combination. Check out the recipe here.

Fried Chicken

So it’s a cliché  — maybe it's for a reason. Buttermilk, eggs, and dried oregano all play a part in this recipe — try it for Sunday dinner.

Green Bean Casserole


It’s a classic holiday dish, but there doesn’t need to be a special occasion to make this recipe, which includes garlic, onion, and thyme.
