Publication Day is always an exciting one around here and today we can share that excitement with our own Riley Adams/Elizabeth Spann Craig. Her 3rd Memphis BBQ Mystery officially releases today. Please join me in toasting her on the pub day of HICKORY SMOKED HOMICIDE! Woot!
In the Kitchen
For two years now, Riley/Elizabeth has been my co-blogging buddy, and my husband and I have enjoyed so many of her recipes. Because today is such a special one for her, I'm making her my "guest of honor" in the kitchen by sharing five wonderful Riley recipes with you. (And, let me tell you, there were many more I wanted to include. This was a difficult list to narrow down!)
Riley's affection for her Southern roots shines through in her posts as well as her books, and it's irresistible. Click on each photo below. A new window will open up and Riley/Elizabeth will share her ingredients and directions.
TIP: Now that we have a "print friendly" button at the end of each post, you will find that it is much easier to print or save (to PDF) some of Riley's earlier posts. With our blog's Recipe Index now LIVE, you can easily locate more of Riley's past recipes. To visit our Index, click here or on the "Recipe Index" icon in the upper left column.
A true keeper of a recipe! "This dish first originated in South Carolina’s coastal regions," Riley informed us, "where it was called ‘Frogmore Stew,’ after the town of Frogmore, SC, (which no longer exists)."
According to Riley, this recipe can be easily adjusted to feed a crowd; and in the South, it’s frequently served on newspapers laid out on picnic tables for easy clean-up. To see Riley's recipe, click here.
My husband now eats asparagus.

This favorite Southern treat brought very happy memories back to my husband, Marc. His mother made this often when he was a little boy. Until Riley's post, he had forgotten. Thanks to Riley, we both now enjoy this (on crackers, bread, or with chips) a few times a month! To see Riley's recipe, click here.
"There’s something about a small-town festival that’s really appealing," Riley wrote after she attended a local apple festival. According Riley, "North Carolina is the 7th largest apple producer in America." With apple season upon us once again, Riley's Apple Cobbler is a welcome treat in our house. To make it one in yours, too, see her recipe here.
for sharing your warmth, wit, and recipes with all of us!
