Happy Blogiversary to The Supermom Chef & a recipe for Sweet & Salty Snack Mix

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Wow, can you believe it’s been a full year of wonderful recipes? I can’t, it seems like just yesterday I was sitting with my hubby talking about possibly starting my own recipe blog. I wonder how many dishes I’ve washed over the last year while preparing recipes for this blog? About 3 gazillion five hundred [...]

Nana’s Pear Salad

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

As a child, I absolutely loved pears, so my Nana would always prepare this salad for me. She’s a bit on the fancy side so she’d plate it up for me on lettuce leaves atop fancy china and let me use her real sterling silver cutlery. I’d eat up every bite that she ever fixed me and [...]

Mae Mae’s Sweet Garlic Pickles

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Let me just start by saying that I’m posting this recipe, which will (next week) be followed by another recipe that uses these pickles as an ingredient.  You don’t want to miss out on that one! It’s super easy and delicious so don’t forget to check back for that one. Now, on to the pickles! [...]

Hamburger Sliders

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Before I tell you about this recipe let me just tell you about my hubby. He’s a super picky eater. He doesn’t like anything “weird” in his food, and “weird” in his mind qualifies as anything other than pasta, meat, or potatoes. He sure doesn’t like onions or peppers, and will turn his nose up [...]

Bacon & Onion Finger Sandwiches

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Here in the deep South, it’s very rare that you attend a gathering where there isn’t some sort of finger sandwich tray. We love our sandwiches down here, but what we love even more is tiny sandwiches that are filled with yummy things like bacon and cheese. What’s not to love? Every good Southern cook [...]

Margaret’s Fruit Dip

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

I know I already posted a fruit dip recipe, but this one got such rave reviews that I had to post it also. After all, one can never have too many creamy ways to fatten up delicious, healthy fruit, right? So this recipe comes to you from my aunt, Margaret. Not Aunt Margaret, just Margaret. [...]

Cake Batter Ice Cream

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

We live in Mississippi and when I say it’s hot, it’s friggin’ HOT! We completely skipped past Spring altogether. It’s supposed to hit 100 degrees today, and I would not be one bit surprised if it just bypassed 100 and hit 105! I love living in the South just as much as any good Southern [...]

Cream Cheese and Pepper Jelly

Friday, April 8th, 2011

I know this isn’t so much a “recipe” as it is an idea, but it still qualifies to be posted here in my humble opinion. This is one of those all-time favorite Southern appetizers that can be found on almost any buffet table, wedding reception, birthday party, pretty much any gathering you can imagine. I [...]

“Consider Yourself Warned” Snack Mix

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Catchy name, right? My smart little brain came up with that one all by myself because the title of this recipe says it all…one bite of this delicious, crunchy, ranchy (yes, that’s a word…at least in my world) snack mix and you’ll be forever unable to stop yourself from grabbing “just one more” handful. My [...]

Pimento & Cheese

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Not many things are as Southern as Pimento & Cheese. I know around here every family has their own variation of the classic spread. Our family’s version is from none other than my Mae Mae! I know you’ve all heard alot about her, but you just might as well get used to it because a [...]
