Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe

What could be a more perfect ending to a summertime meal than easy peach cobbler? Savor the flavors of summer with sliced fresh peaches cooking away with butter and spices. The topping can made from pantry ingredients you have on hand and peaches can easily be substituted with any fruit you have depending onthe time of year. The tang of the lemon juice paired with the sweetness of the peaches is perfectly balancedwith the crisp topping. Want to make dessert even better? A dollop of fresh whipped cream or cold vanilla ice cream truly makes it the perfect way to end a summer night.

Classic Baked Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

For a pan of classic, special occasion-worthy mac, our easy baked macaroni and cheese recipe is the best around. You’ll want to whisk warm milk into the flour mixture to ensure a lump-free sauce. We also recommend shredding your own cheese, rather than buying pre-shredded cheddar, for a creamier texture. (We tested this baked mac and cheese with Cracker Barrel Extra-Sharp Cheddar.) Follow these simple tips, and you’ll have yourself the perfect pan of golden, creamy macaroni and cheese, ready for any occasion, in no time flat.

Best Carrot Cake Recipe

Truly our best-ever carrot cake recipe, make this classic favorite for a crowd and you might not have any leftovers to bring home. For moreflavor, try toasting the nuts and coconut before adding them to the batter. It's important to cool the cakes completely before frosting, otherwise the frosting will just melt right off. To expediate the cooling process, you can put the cakes on their wire racks in the freezer (don't worry, it's not cheating), checking until they're thoroughly cool. This is a cake you can bake for any occasion. We recommend this cake anytime from Easter to Christmas.

Basic Deviled Eggs Recipe

The filling for Southern-style basic deviled eggs is nothing more than egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard and sweet pickle relish. These deviled eggs are perfect for potlucks, tailgates, and summer suppers. Now, if you have trouble peeling hard boiled eggs, here's a trick: Once cool, crack the eggs and place in cold water for 10 minutes, then try peeling them. The peels almost always come off much easier. You can also place the filling into a piping bag for a pretty, swirled finished look.

White Barbecue Sauce Recipe

At many barbecue joints across the South, white barbecue sauce (sometimes referred to as Alabama white BBQ sauce)is the sauce of choice. It's typicallya mayonnaise-based sauce, made tangy with the addition of vinegar, horseradish, and mustard. Fans of white sauce say that once you've dousedyour barbecued chickenin this sauce, you'll never go back tored barbecue sauce. Personally, we like a little bit of both on a pulled pork sandwich, butespecially for smoked chicken, you absolutely can't beat the rich tang of white barbecue sauce.Try it on any of your barbecue favorites this summer, from slabs of ribs to Texas-style brisket. This white BBQ sauce recipe happens to be great for drizzling, but if you prefer a thicker sauce, omit some or all of the water.If you don’t have Creole mustard on hand or have a difficult time finding it in your supermarket, you can easily substitute your favorite grainy or coarse ground mustard instead.

Shepherd's Pie Recipe

This potato-topped shepherd’s pie gets extra flavor from the cheese and carrots that are added to the mashed potato crust. You can take a shortcut with the crust because the recipe calls for frozen mashed potatoes. There's a reason this comfort dish has remained a classic Southern staple. With its layers of beef, veggies, and mashed potatoes,it utilizes great flavors and gives off a warm, homey aroma that'senough to make everyone gather around the dinner table in no time! Everyone in the family will want seconds. This is the perfect make-ahead recipe because it can freeze for up to one month. That's 55 minutes well-spent.
