Some things not mentioned here yet:

Homemade Biscuits with molasses and butter
Any sort of cobbler (blackberry, blueberry, peach, cherry)
Homemade ice cream (banana and peach are my favs)
Cornbread baked in the oven in a cast iron pan
Fried chicken (fried in a cast iron pan)
Caseroles galore (squash and greenbean were big in my family)
Potatoes and dumplins or Chicken and dumplins (dumplins made from biscuit dough)
Chicken pie (remember chicken pie suppers?)
Black-eye Peas and corn (they like to mix things here in the south)
Pintos and Cornbread (nice meal in the winter)

Restaraunts that serve southern-style food:

Mama Dips in Chapel Hill
**It used to be better but since she has become somewhat famous it is a tad expensive for what you get. It is almost a sin to serve small portions of southern food.

A lot of small towns have diners that serve homecooking ... but ask around because not all of them are good (IMHO).

Or ... try to befriend some natives and hope they invite you over for dinner!

Vass,
Fried Tomatoes.
You have a recipe?
My mom used to make them 50 years ago. Remember her's we done in a big ol cast iron frying pan. Remember milk was used.
You know we have some fairly good tomatoes here in Jersey so I'm looking for a recipe.
I know, I should be shot for not knowing mom's recipe.
Send me your recipe and maybe I can play with it and get mom's close.
Dennis

I don't have a recipe handy. My grandmother made them from time to time. I just remember she sprinkled flour and some salt on them and sauteed them in butter.

Here's an online recipe thats probably close enough
