Chef Christy Jordan Visits Suwanee Branch

Come Home to Supper reflects the reality of today’s family schedules, gathering more than 200 deeply satisfying dishes that are budget-conscious, kid-friendly, and quick to make. These are the everyday meals that Christy most loves to cook and her family most loves to eat, and she serves them up with generous helpings of her folksy wisdom, gratitude, and lively stories. Many of the recipes make ingenious use of the slow cooker or a single pot or skillet, and they all use easily found supermarket ingredients.

In her cookbook Southern Plate, Christy gets back to her southern roots with traditional recipes including chicken and dumplings, hoe cakes, boiled peanuts, chili, blackberry cobbler, and the oh-so-delectable pecan pie.  Interspersed with Christy's heart warming stories of family and friends, makes this an essential cookbook for any southern home.  Filled to the brim with full color photos and categorized by season of year, you'll find yourself saying "that's just like mama used to make it".
