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.

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 for as long as I can remember.
Now he's back, and I'm finally old enough for the ride of my life.
Gabriel Kent was driven out of town 8 years ago because of my family.
And if he knew who I was, he wouldn't have anything to do with me.
So I can't tell him 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.

Then tragedy struck, and he had to leave the country. All because of my family.

Now he's back. Older, wiser, and hotter--and an accomplished doctor, too. 

Something magical happens: he finally sees me as a woman, and not the girl he left. I sense desire in his hungry gaze, and his dominant, intoxicating touch.

But that's only because he doesn't recognize me. 

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. Contains steamy scenes, explicit language, and elements of BDSM. 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!

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!

Virgin Fiancée: A Fake Engagement Romance
So we’re engaged. Sort of.
He just needs his family to think it’s real.
No problem. I’ll play along. How hard can it be?
But pretending isn’t supposed to feel this good,
And now I can’t help wanting him for real.


My old roommate used to help me pay the rent. Now the only roommate I have is my orange tabby, and despite everything I’ve done for him, that jerk has never paid me a cent.

So when my landlord knocks on my door, I brace myself for an eviction.

Instead, he makes me an offer. I can stay for free, as long as I pretend to be his fiancée. He says it’ll make his sick mom happy.

Raphael Holt is wealthy, handsome and has dazzling green eyes that makes me want things I don’t even understand. He lights an unfamiliar fire inside me.

So I say yes.

But none of this is real. There’s no way someone like him could actually want to be with a penniless virgin like me. Not when he could take his pick from any of the single girls in the city.

I’d only get my heart broken if I believe any of this is real. And I might lose my home, too.

So I’ll play along. I’ll be the perfect fake fiancée and nothing more.

I can resist that cocky smirk, that lustful stare, and that dirty mouth. I can ignore the way his deep voice sends a chill down my arms every time he says my name. Of course I can.

This is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 60,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!

Single Dad's Fake Bride: A Virgin and Billionaire Romance
My billionaire boss wants me to marry him.
But this is no office romance. This is just pretend.
Or at least it’s supposed to be... until feelings get involved.
Now I want him and his daughter to be my real family.
But I have a secret that could destroy everything.


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.

Now he’s in trouble. Because of his bad reputation, he could lose custody of his daughter.

And by some strange twist of fate, I’m the only person who can help him… by pretending to be his wife.

But here’s a secret: he doesn’t know who I really am.

Yes, I’m his sweet, innocent assistant during office hours, but I’m also an undercover journalist. I only started working for Ethan to dig up some dirt on him.

So I marry him. That makes me both a virgin and a married woman, which is weird. But hey, many journalists have done crazier things to get the inside scoop.

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?

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!

Billionaire Protector: A Dark Romance
I should be all grown-up now. I should have my life figured out.
But all I have is a dull job and a lonely apartment… until him.
When a billionaire makes you a once-in-a-lifetime offer, you don’t say no.
Especially when he’s this painfully handsome.
Not even when you know he’s trouble…


Designer suit. Luxury car. Expensive watch. Seth Wayne blends in well… But something dangerous is lurking beneath his sleek exterior.

Or maybe that’s just an excuse I make up because I’m dying to see what he’s packing underneath that suit. Can you blame me, though? He’s hotter than the spiciest chili in my pantry.

I try to keep things professional.

Until he asks me to be his personal chef.

He promises me a lot of money and free creative reign. I can come up with any menu I want and use the best equipment and ingredients money can buy.

The only catch?

I’ll have to live in his mansion outside the city.

It sounds too good to be true...

Then again, what’s the worst that can happen, right? Even if he’s only using the job as bait to lure me into his bed, it wouldn’t be the worst thing to happen.

It might just be the best one.

Billionaire Protector is a standalone, full-length novel of approximately 60,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Includes bonus content!
