Mmmm, southern comfort. No, I’m not talking about schnapps, but the warm and cozy meals your grandmother fed you with. (Will we ever know what she put in this mashed potato to make it so good?)

Anyway, if you grew up in the south, you can understand the sanctity of properly prepared side dishes and a perfected chicken. It’s just a shame that all too often we don’t have the time to recreate these nostalgic family recipes.
