Hot Tomato, Bacon & Chicken Pasta & {The Southern Bite Cookbook Review & Giveaway}


Today I'm sharing a yummy cookbook review with y'all!  Not just any cookbook, but the newly released Southern Bite Cookbook! 
This beautiful southern cookbook was released on Tuesday March 11th, but I was lucky enough to score an advanced copy to drool through.

This beautiful cookbook is written by my friend Stacey Little of SouthernBite.com. If you love simple southern food this cookbook is a must have, and I'm honored to add this beautiful book to my cookbook collection. 

The Southern Bite Cookbook is filled with 150 southern dishes passed down from 4 generations of his families kitchen! Stacey is a simple man with a big heart and a love for food, family and heritage. And in the south that's a big deal!  

When Stacey announced that he was writing a cookbook I knew right off that it would be nothing less that a hit. All of his recipes call for simple ingredients and pantry staples which is the definition of southern and country cooking. If you have a love for southern food like I do you'll immediately appreciate so many of these great recipes.
 
I'm so proud to call Stacey my friend and even more honored to have met him in Person. All I can say is Stacey's a hoot and definitely a keeper. I have so much fun every time I'm around him and he has such an infectious personality. This beautiful cookbook was written with a labor of love and it show's through on each and every page. Stacey, ya did good my friend! 


The photos in this cookbook are not only beautiful, but inviting and mouth watering to say the least. Each and every photo takes you back to your mother or grandmother's kitchen. Fried chicken, pimento cheese, pulled pork, stuffed peppers, succotash, chicken pot pie, fried green tomatoes, roasted garlic chicken, meatloaf, smothered pork chops and the south's famous comeback sauce is just a sampling of recipes you'll find in this delicious cookbook. 


Oh and let's not forget the desserts!! The Southern Bite cookbook is packed full of so many of my favorites, Lemon ice box pie, Dr. pepper cake, buttermilk pie, scratch brownies, pound cake, red velvet brownies and his mom's peach cobbler. Stacey was also generous enough to include recipes from his southernbite.com readers, so just might find a recipe in their from yours truly!!!! 

Now onto the recipes that I chose to make. First on the list was this easy-peasy Hot Tomato, Bacon & Chicken Pasta. I was in a pinch for dinner when we returned from Spring Break and I had everything on hand to make this wonderful pasta dish. 

This recipe honestly falls under what we call a pantry staple recipe. I even took Stacey's suggestion and added chicken to turn this side dish into a entree. Everyone loved it and it and I literally had dinner on the table in 30 minutes.



Hot Tomato, Bacon & Chicken Pasta 

1 - (12 oz) package bow tie pasta
5 - slices bacon, cooked

1 - onion, chopped
1 - cloves garlic, minced
1 - 2 cans (14 oz) can diced tomatoes (prefer Red Gold basil, oregano and garlic)
2 - cups cooked shredded chicken (I used Rotisserie)
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the pasta according to package directions and drain well. In a large skillet over medium heat, fry the bacon until crispy; then drain on paper towels and crumble.

Drain all but 3 tablespoons of the bacon grease from the pan. Return the pan to medium heat, add the onion and cook 7-8 minutes or until the onion is translucent.

Add the garlic, tomatoes with juice and chicken. Add salt to taste and reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the crumbled bacon to the sauce and toss the pasta.

Serves: 5-6



This next recipe is no stranger in my house! I have made these yummy Pecan Chewies more times than I can count. They bake up golden brown with a rich chewy center.  This was one of the first southernbite recipes I tried a few years back, and I've been making them ever since. 





Pecan Chewies

Ingredients:
2 - sticks butter, melted
1 - cup granulated sugar
1 - cup light brown sugar, packed
2 - eggs, beaten
2 - cups self-rising flour (do not substitute)

1 - cup pecans pieces
2 - teaspoons vanilla extract


Directions:
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Melt butter, add sugars, and blend well by hand. 


Add beaten eggs, stir well.  Add flour and stir until all lumps are gone. Add pecans and vanilla. 

Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake approximately 40 to 50 minutes watch closely so they don't over cook. You want them to retain their chewiness.

Cook's Note:
If you do not have any self rising flour on hand you can make your own.

For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix to combine and continue with recipe. 

Serves: 8-10

I would have to say the one thing that reminds me of home is my Mom's Cat Head Biscuits and Sausage Gravy. I make this myself about once a week, mostly on Saturday's, and when I take that first bite....I'm back home again in my Mom's kitchen. Watching and learning how to cook from my Mom.

Mom died in 2005, but not before leaving a wonderful legacy of recipes for her 5 daughters to use.

chicken salad (the grapes and pecan kind) and popovers say home to me. This was my fav lunch. Mom made it for us when Dad was not coming home, as he did not care for either one. They are both gone now...and this lunch brings them closer.

My favorite thing to make is my grandmas fried potato pancakes. I used to ask her for them so often that she made the rule that we would only have them once a month. She would always make them on Good Friday because she wouldn't eat fish. ljg719@hotmail.com

The Pecan Chewies sound exactly like my grandma made.

Lisa said... #

My Mom used to make what she called pigs in blankets. It was round steak strips wrapped in bacon secured with a toothpick. Then she fried them and simmered them with some water, which made the meat tender and a wonderful juice which she thickened into a Rich gravy. All was served over wide noodles. Mmmmm! I think I know what tomorrow's dinner will be!

Nothing really reminds me of home because I didn't learn to cook from my mother. I love making steak and gravy with mashed potatoes because it reminds my father of home, when he was younger, and his mother and father were alive. Nothing makes me happier than to give those memories to HIM when I cook.
Thank you for this giveaway :)

I have been trying to figure out my grandmother's Swedish meatball recipe. Each time I make it I feel i am getting closer to her recipe and feel she's right there with me. She would make them every summer for us to feast upon. We don't have a recipe but I have made it a goal to figure it out so that my family and I can journey back in time to those amazing summer memories with just one bite. And then we in turn can pass the stories and food onto our own children.

The South sticks with you in a warm, sweet kind of way, just like its foods do! I was born in Atlanta, raised in South Florida, and have lived in California all of my adult life! Reading these recipes and seeing the photos makes my mouth water and thoughts of my Aunt Polly's cooking come up with sweet memories! I love to prepare these types of foods and am thrilled that there are books like this one being published in 2014! You truly can take the girl out if the south but never the south out of the girl!

My mom's stuffed cabbage, and with the leftover rice she would make the best baked rice pudding. My mom never used a recipe and I wish I knew how she made it. I never thought to ask her and write it down and now its to late.

The recipe that always reminds me of home is macaroni and cheese--not the boxed stuff, but my mom's recipe with sharp white cheddar. I still can't make it as good as hers!

Hard to choose just one item that reminds me of home since almost everything I make reminds me of home. I learned to cook from many wonderful southern cooks such as my Mom, Dad, both grands, several Aunts and an Uncle. I guess if I had to choose just one it would be lettuce and onions with hot fat back drippings. Thanks for the chance to win.

The dish that always reminds me of home and my mom's kitchen is a dish she called Come Without Calling... but to most of you, it would be Goulash!

My Mom's potato salad takes me right back to childhood, even more so if I serve it with her barbecued chicken (which is actually cooked in the oven)

Hello All,
Homemade macaroni and cheese with green onions on the side, remind me of home. It was a favorite growing up and now I make it for my family. It doesn't get much better then that!

I loved my grandmother's cooking she made the best Mac and cheese and fried chicken ... She always knew when you had a bad day and how to cheer you up ... I also make her summer squash casserole quite frequently

Your Pecan Chewies recipe is very similar to a recipe my Grandmother made a lot and when I make that recipe it reminds me of home.

Chicken and Dumplings remind me of my grandmother, she made the best chicken and dumplings. I can't duplicate hers but I finally found a recipe that comes close and I always think of her and the holidays she made these.
