I love them all.. except for red velvet cake and fried okra. I'll take banana pudding or peach cobbler any day over red velvet! ....and if anyone wants a taste of truly southern food. Go to Savannah and try Ms. Wilkes Boarding House. Forget about Paula Deen's crap food.

Boiled peanuts are not something I've eaten and I have only remotely heard of them and I was raised in NE NC. Okra isn't a bit hit around here either at least in my circles.

Amen on that Banana Pudding (made the right way with meringue on top) and Peach Cobbler.

While we're at it let's go ahead and throw the Cadillac of Southern Pies in there for measure, Pecan Pie.......with Coconut Cream a close second. (Let's not forget about Chocolate Sheet Cake either!)

Arggghhhh! Now I'm REALLY hungry.

Does anyone here like better-than-sex cake? Not sure if it actually originated down south, but it's pretty popular here

My mom makes some of the best peach cobbler, but she hasn't made it in ages, and even had us eat some store bought mess a few weeks ago. Mom, why would you do that?

I don't think I've ever actually had turnip greens. I hate grits, and I like my iced tea just slightly sweetened. Everything else is great though.
