Shrimp, Collards & Grits
Recipes, Stories and Art from the Creeks and Gardens of the Lowcountry
By Pat Branning
The South is a place where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter, macaroni and cheese is a vegetable, front porches are wide and words are long. Buttermilk pie is a staple. Y’all is the only proper noun. Chicken is fried and biscuits come with cream gravy. Everything is darlin’ and someone’s heart is always being blessed.
