Title: The Southern Pantry Cookbook
Author: Jennifer Chandler
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Using checklists and smart strategies, Jennifer Chandler helps readers unearth dozens of Southern meals waiting to be discovered in their well-stocked pantries.
Nothing can discourage a home cook quite like being unprepared—running to the store for that one item, getting halfway through a recipe and realizing something is missing, or simply not knowing quite where to begin. Kitchen pro and popular cookbook author Jennifer Chandler returns with The Southern Pantry Cookbook, a fail-safe game plan for ensuring mealtime success.
Chandler helps readers stock their shelves with ingredients that will get them out of the kitchen quickly and around their table with family and friends. From rice and beans to sauces and seasonal produce, Chandler demonstrates how to turn basic recipe supplies into memorable Southern-style meals. With just a little bit of planning and a whole lot of down-home flavor, Chandler has some pretty delicious answers to the question, “What’s for supper?”
Recipe highlights include:
- Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Dried Cranberries and Pecans

- Braised Chicken with Mushrooms and Grits
- Pan-Seared Pork Chops with Drunken Peaches
- Cheesy-Jalapeno Hushpuppies

The Creamy Vidalia Onion Soup is fantastic! It represents the Vidalia onion that you find commonly in the grocery stores here in Texas. I love to use local products. This is a wonderful way to have something local in a very simple and budget friendly meal that will feed many. The second recipe I just downright enjoy in this book is the Rustic Blueberry Lemon Tart. Super simple to put together in just minutes for a delightful dessert. This could be easily paired with some ice cream or better yet fried ice cream. Everything is fried in the south!
