"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born - it's an idea, a state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, high school football, country music, and acoustic guitars. It's being hospitable, being devoted to front porches, magnolias, the good Lord, and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way."


Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies!

I found the recipe for perfect peanut butter cookies, thanks to my friend Irregular Tammie.

They're from Publix's Apron Simple Meals. They're insanely easy and truly delicious!

Simple Peanut Butter Cookies


1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine all ingredients in medium bowl.
2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten with fork in a crisscross design.
3. Bake 8-10 minutes until lightly browned and slightly puffed. Cool 1 minute on baking sheet, then remove to wire rack. Serve.

Then stuff your face!


  1. I tried these yesterday & seriously they are good. Not sure how only 4 ingredients do the trick, but they totally do! They were so good I made another batch today. Oh & from start to finish including cooking time is like 15 minutes. Can't get better then that! Thanks again for the great recipe :)

  2. I cant wait to try these;)
