Pan-Fried Soft-Shell Crabs
Ask your fishmonger to clean soft-shell crabs for you so you can cook the seasonal delights to crisp perfection. Keep in mind that the crustaceans should be cooked no more than six hours after purchase.
The recipe for these extra-large biscuits comes from Virginia Willis, the author of "Secrets of the Southern Table." A phrase her grandfather once used, the name indicates that it's a biscuit as big as a cat's head. Each one is golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside, with a light, airy interior.
Coconut-Sugar Hummingbird Cake
This classic southern cake can be over-the-top sweet. Enter coconut sugar, a sweetener from the sap of the coconut tree's flower buds. While it has no coconut flavor, it does bring a caramelized, almost savory complexity to baked goods. It's perfect in a cake that's plenty sweet (as well as moist), thanks to the fresh banana and pineapple. This recipe appears in our cookbook, "A New Way to Bake" (Clarkson Potter).
Key Lime Bars
This recipe is based on the famous Key lime pie from Joe's Stone Crab restaurant in Miami Beach. If you can't find Key limes, use regular fresh lime juice.
Flaky Buttery Biscuits
Fresh hot biscuits slathered with butter, topped with a spoonful of jam, and served alongside fluffy scrambled eggs and a salty pork product are the epitome of a cozy breakfast (or dinner).
These decadent bars are inspired by Hello Dollies, a popular Southern dessert.
