The Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook

Everybody has one in their collection. You know―one of those old, spiral- or plastic-tooth-bound cookbooks sold to support a high school marching band, a church, or the local chapter of the Junior League. These recipe collections reflect, with unimpeachable authenticity, the dishes that define communities: chicken and dumplings, macaroni and cheese, chess pie. When the Southern Foodways Alliance began curating a cookbook, it was to these spiral-bound, sauce-splattered pages that they turned for their model.

Including more than 170 tested recipes, this cookbook is a true reflection of southern foodways and the people, regardless of residence or birthplace, who claim this food as their own. Traditional and adapted, fancy and unapologetically plain, these recipes are powerful expressions of collective identity. There is something from―and something for―everyone. The recipes and the stories that accompany them came from academics, writers, catfish farmers, ham curers, attorneys, toqued chefs, and people who just like to cook―spiritual Southerners of myriad ethnicities, origins, and culinary skill levels.

Edited by Sara Roahen and John T. Edge, written, collaboratively, by Sheri Castle, Timothy C. Davis, April McGreger, Angie Mosier, and Fred Sauceman, the book is divided into chapters that represent the region’s iconic foods: Gravy, Garden Goods, Roots, Greens, Rice, Grist, Yardbird, Pig, The Hook, The Hunt, Put Up, and Cane. Therein you’ll find recipes for pimento cheese, country ham with redeye gravy, tomato pie, oyster stew, gumbo z’herbes, and apple stack cake. You’ll learn traditional ways of preserving green beans, and you’ll come to love refried black-eyed peas.

Are you hungry yet?

Published in association with the Southern Foodways Alliance at the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi. A Friends Fund Publication.

The Five Brothers Next Door: A Reverse Harem Romance
The Hunter brothers are back in town, and all five of them have got their eyes on one lucky girl.

I've always had a crush on the boys next door. I used to peek from my bedroom window when they were playing in their backyard. I didn't even care that they never looked my way.

Now that we're all grown up and they're home for a visit, something's different. The way they stare at me sends a thrill down my spine. If I didn't know any better, I'd say they're checking me out and they like what they see.

But that's insane, right? There's no way the five gorgeous brothers are into me.

I try to forget about them, but we keep running into one another in this small town. One night, the Hunter brothers even save me from my harassing ex.

I'm in trouble. It's getting harder and harder to ignore the wicked glint in their eyes, or the way they linger when we touch . . .

When they whisper in my ears, telling me all the naughty things they want to do to me, I can't deny it any longer. I want them, too. All five of them.

It's wrong. Oh, so wrong.

But five alpha, protective, hot-as-sin men? What chance do I have of resisting the Hunter brothers?

This is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 56,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!

My Brother's Friend, the Dom
I started out with good intentions, I swear.
I promised my best friend I’d protect his sister from a dark secret.
Then I see her—all grown up, gorgeous, and completely off-limits.
I try to stay away... until I find out just how bad she's been.
Screw protection. What she really needs is punishment.

The first time I met Sarah Ellis, she was a wide-eyed eighteen-year-old who asked for a tattoo on her wrist. So I gave her that... then I checked to see if she had ink anywhere else on that delicious little body. Let’s just say she left a happy customer.

But Sarah made it clear that it was just a one-night stand. She was leaving town for college.

Then, unexpectedly, I met her brother and we hit it off. Peter and I bonded over a few joints and some painting supplies, and soon we were having a full-blown bromance.

Unfortunately, Peter's gone now. But he gave me one task before he went away: protect his little sister from a deep, dark secret.

I said yes, naturally. I’d keep an eye on her. Anything for my best friend.

It’s been five years since I last saw Sarah. She's a woman now, with ripe curves and a graceful elegance. The sight of her makes me wish I could have her in my chair again, moaning and quivering in ecstasy.

I try to keep my dirty hands off her. But when she posts on a kinky website, looking for a dominant master, I can’t just sit on my hands. She’s putting herself in danger. I have to step in.

So I send her a message—anonymously, of course. I tell her I’m the Dom she’s been looking for. I tell her I’m going to inflict exquisite pain on her body and give her unimaginable pleasure. I know exactly what to say... because dark urges have been haunting me, too.

I’m not really going to do any of those depraved things to Sarah, though. She deserves better. I just want to show her she’s playing a dangerous game and convince her to live with me, at least temporarily. For her own safety.

But who am I kidding? That's bullsh*t. I just want her all to myself. The sweet submission in her eyes calls out to the darkness within me. And it’s only a matter of time until I cave.

This is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 55,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!

Royal Beast: A Dark Fairy Tale Romance

Life’s not a fairy tale, and princes don't fall for bookish virgins like me.

I didn't know about the secret palace in the woods. Not until I held a stolen rose from its gardens.

A tall, dark, and mysterious man lives within the palace. He’s known across the kingdom as the royal beast. They say he’s a monster.

He also happens to be the crown prince.

As punishment for my crime, the prince orders me to spend one month as his prisoner.

But instead of throwing me into the dungeon, he whisks me into his bedchamber. The arrogant bastard says he’ll make me beg to give up my virginity.

I tell him there’s no way in hell that’s happening, of course.

He's the freaking crown prince, and I'm just a girl from a provincial town in the middle of nowhere. We don’t belong together. That's obvious.

But somehow he knows about my dark, secret desires. All he has to do is speak in that low, dominant voice, and I melt into a submissive puddle. Despite my reservations, I find myself wanting to surrender my virgin body to the prince—and my heart, too.

I really should stay away. But being punished has never felt so good.

Royal Beast is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 57,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!

Knocked Up
My prim-and-proper assistant has a dirty, dirty mind.
I found her steamy writing on my computer.
Now all I can think about is re-enacting the “good parts” of her story.
But I don't sh*t where I eat. She's off-limits.
Until I realize I need a baby—and she’d be the perfect surrogate.

I control the hottest funds on Wall Street. The financial papers call me a genius. My business is worth billions of dollars.

But it all means nothing when my dad’s lying on his deathbed and I don't have the only thing he wants: a grandchild.

Enter Katherine York—my assistant. She thinks a pencil skirt and a buttoned-up blouse mask the naughty girl inside. But I’ve peeked inside her mind and can’t get her raunchy words out of my head. Who does she think she’s kidding?

There's no hiding those lush curves, or those kinky fantasies her beautiful mind dreams up. Kat wants to make it as a romance author, and I have the money and connections to get her there.

So I offer her a new position: as a surrogate for my baby. She’ll be working under me, of course. Right under me.

The contract is clear. I get her pregnant. She delivers my baby. She walks away with a publishing deal and half a million dollars.

Simple, right?

Except once I get a taste of her—my kitten—I’m hooked. She’s an addiction I can't quit. I’ll break all the rules to make her stay.

Knocked Up is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 51,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!

My Brother's Best Friend
I’ve loved him my whole life.
He’s only ever seen me as the little crybaby who needed a lot of rescuing.
Now he’s back after 8 years away, and he doesn’t recognize me.
The look in his eyes says I'm finally old enough for the ride of my life.
I can't tell him who I am now… can I?

I used to scribble his name all over my notebook, surrounded by little hearts. He treated me like his own sister, but I wanted more. I wanted to have his last name and wear his ring on my finger.

Eight years ago, tragedy struck. He had to leave the country, and it was all because of my family.

Now he’s back in town. He still has the same sharp green eyes, the same strong jaw, and the same thick mess of chestnut hair.

He's panty-meltingly, toe-curlingly irresistible. And most importantly...

He finally sees me as a woman, and not the girl he left. I see desire in his hungry gaze. I feel it in his dominant touch.

But that’s only because he doesn't recognize me. Given our history, he probably wouldn’t even come near me if he learns the truth.

The way he undresses me with his eyes under the moonlight… I can’t break the spell and tell him the truth.

It's okay if I don't tell him, right? It's only for one night. He's made it clear he doesn't do relationships, and I just want him to be the one to take my virginity.

Except one night turns into two, and then three, and then I’m so in over my head that I don’t know what to do. I think I’m screwed, but not in the good way.

Nothing is going to be the same when I finally come clean.

My Brother's Best Friend is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 51,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!

The Billionaire's Bride: A Fake Marriage Romance
He was my first kiss. My first boyfriend. And my first heartbreak.
I should’ve known better than to fall for the bad boy.
Now, 7 years later, this bad boy needs a good wife to close a business deal.
He says he’ll make it worth my while. Yeah, I remember that big, thick… ego.
This is supposed to be just pretend, so why do I want us to go all the way?

Everyone knows who Zeke Harris is. A modern rags-to-riches success story, he built a billion-dollar business empire from nothing. Tall, dark, and panty-meltingly gorgeous, he’s also the most eligible bachelor in the city. At least that’s what the magazines say.

To me, Zeke Harris is the bad boy who used to sneak into my bedroom when my parents were away. He reminds me of late nights, youthful excitement, and new, sinful sensations.

Time and distance tore our young love apart, but now he’s back. And he needs me—to be his wife.

Yes, Zeke Harris wants me to marry him. But it’s only for the sake of his business. In exchange, he’ll give me one million dollars. There’s another million in it if I’ll also have his baby.

I should tell him to buzz off, right? This is crazy.

But I do need the money, and I’ve never been good at saying no to Zeke...

So I accept his offer. I’ll marry him and play house with him. But I am not giving him a second chance. This fake marriage is not about that.

But then he leans me down on his strong arms and kisses me, and all the feelings I’ve ever had for him come rushing back.

I should've known I can't just pretend—not with Zeke.

This is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 54,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!

Again: A Second Chance Romance
My dad said the boy was trouble, and I didn't listen.
Now, years after Aiden broke my heart, he suddenly reappears—everywhere.
He shows up in the strangest places. I can't seem to escape him.
Worse still, I don't want to. Even if I still hate what the boy did.
I’m afraid I’m falling all over again for the man he's become.

Ten years ago, I waited for my boyfriend all night at our usual place. He never showed up, not even when the diner closed and they shooed me outside to wait in the rain.

Trying to get over Aiden was more painful than a root canal and more difficult than my med school classes. But somehow I managed to put the shattered pieces of myself back together.

One thing I still haven't done? Fall completely in love with another guy, the way I fell for Aiden. I'm sure I will, though… eventually.

Then, without any warning, Aiden starts showing up everywhere: at the mall parking lot, by the slot machines in the casino, and even at my sister’s wedding rehearsal. Oh, we also happen to be new medical interns at the same hospital.

Seriously, what is happening?

I mean, a part of me is still fuming over what happened in the past. But I can't deny I’ve always wanted to see Aiden again. He's looking good. Real good.

He used to be a tall, lanky kid. Now, he's a solid wall of muscles, with a smile that could melt hearts (and panties). Despite his humble beginnings, he's also a young doctor with a bright future ahead of him.

As our worlds collide, secrets come tumbling out. We learn the chilling truth: with every secret kiss we share, we're risking everything—our careers and our families.

I know I should stay away from Aiden. The stakes are too high. But what do I do when love keeps leading us back to each other, again and again?

Again is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 54,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!

Stripped: A Bad Boy Next Door Romance
I broke my own rules for him.
For one mind-blowing, toe-curling night.
Now he’s back, and he wants all of me.
He wants to know all my deep, dirty secrets.
He won’t stop until he’s stripped me bare.

I never thought I’d see him again, especially not in this sleepy little town. He’s not a SEAL anymore, but otherwise he’s just as tall, dark, and dominating as I remember.

I can see the hunger in his eyes. It makes me want to surrender, to submit to his desires. I want his hard, sculpted body pinning me down, claiming me as his property.

Then, he moves in next door.

Perfect, right?

Except I need to stay away from him. He's completely, non-negotiably off-limits, even if he says he wants to protect me, even if I crave his intoxicating touch.

He’s not supposed to be here. There shouldn’t be any trace of my old life left.

This is a full-length standalone novel of approximately 70,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after!

Ethan Hunter is a self-made billionaire. He also happens to be devastatingly handsome. My knees go weak when he looks at me with those piercing blue eyes.

Yes, I’m his sweet, innocent assistant during office hours, but I’m also working undercover as a journalist. I only started working for Ethan to get the inside scoop on him.

So I marry him. That makes me both a virgin and a married woman, which I'll admit is strange. But hey, stranger things have been done in the name of journalism.

Then I move into Ethan's swanky penthouse apartment and things start to unravel. Everything feels too real. I have a plan, but my heart won’t stick to it—and neither will my traitorous body.

I want this fake life to be my reality. But what will happen when Ethan finds out the truth about me?
