There are a few recipes every good southern girl should have in her repertoire.  A southern girl should know how to make biscuits, fry a chicken, make a perfect glass of sweet tea, and of course, know how to whip up some lemon meringue pie.  Now, with that said, I cook all the time, perfecting [...]
