I have a serious weakness for southern cuisine. It could be because I spent a portion of my childhood living in Georgia, or it could also be because I still have family residing in Texas. Either way, when I am presented with a plate of shrimp and grits with Andouille sausage, biscuits and gravy, or anything with gravy, really, it takes little to no effort to convince me to eat it.

If southern comfort food was the cure for any disease, this week’s food blog of the week, Southern Pink Lemonade, would be one hell of a pharmacy.

Written by a woman named Heather who resides in Kansas, Southern Pink Lemonade provides a fantastic collection of comforting recipes that pull at the heart strings of anybody yearning for rich Baked Potato Soup, Chili, or Stuffed Shells. Her recipes are fairly simple and easy to follow, and the outcome is always something warm and inviting.
