    I really enjoyed this show! Thank you.

    We always put small okra in our pinkeye peas

  13. 13soap13 on July 17, 2022 at 2:38 am

    Growing up in the North, the closest we got to okra was gumbo soup. When I moved to the South where okra is plentiful, I had all kinds of fun. Here’s my favorite recipe for a "stewed" okra. Loved the show. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Declan McLeod on July 17, 2022 at 2:39 am

    The Okra Fritters look amazing…..and Purple Hulls are my favorite!!!!

  15. CrowGirl on July 17, 2022 at 2:44 am

    Miss Evette’s Fried Chicken with the fresh herbs looks absolutely delicious! I love that she shared her seasoning blend. Will be incorporating this recipe into my next fried chicken adventure (just a bit intimidated by hot oil 😬🙂)!!

    Loved the purple hill pea sisters banter/smacktalk!

  19. Declan McLeod on July 17, 2022 at 2:52 am

    I’ve always felt fortunate for being born and raised in the South….from New Orleans, and was exposed to many different cuisines, Soul Food, Creole, French, Italian, Greek…so many….I live in Northwest Louisiana now, and learned what is called country cooking also, which basically is a blend of Soul foods…..and my Mom was from Arkansas, so, I had the best of all worlds in food…..I cook them all, and Also Japanese, Chinese, and so many more…..I am an herbalist, so I grow many herbs, and vegetables, so, from farm to table is apprapo for me…loved the video, so interesting!!!! And new ideas!!! Thank you so much!

  20. linda parker on July 17, 2022 at 2:53 am

    My parents both from the South, I am a multicultural cook. But nothing is better to me than Southern Cusine ! I just love all the wonderful blending of spices ! Awesome & delicious recipes !

  21. Ruby Arias on July 17, 2022 at 2:54 am

    For the biscuits…what if you put aluminum free baking powder? Is so much sugar needed?
