Early in life, North Carolinian Debbie Moose encountered fish primarily in stick form, but once she experienced her first raw oyster and first fried soft-shell crab, their pure flavors switched her on to shellfish and fish forever. Moose has now written the cookbook that unlocks for everyone the fresh tastes of North Carolina grilled tuna, steamed shrimp, pan-seared mountain trout, fried catfish, and baked littleneck clams, to name just a few of the culinary treasures sourced from the waters of a state that stretches from the mountains to the sea.
In ninety-six dishes, Moose shows how to prepare North Carolina fish and shellfish–freshwater, saltwater, wild-caught, and farmed–in both classic southern and inventive, contemporary ways. The book’s Best Basics section provides a much needed one-stop resource for confident selection, preparation, and storage, and the Think Seasonal section offers a comprehensive list with descriptions and peak availability of North Carolina fish and shellfish.

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, White Bean and Country Ham Soup, Braised Chicken with Mushrooms and Grits, Pan-Seared Pork Chops with Drunken Peaches, Cheesy-Jalapeno Hushpuppies, and Blackberry Skillet Cobbler.
The South’s relationship with drinking is complicated. Although religious and legal mandates discourage the sale and consumption of alcohol, the region has a robust drinking culture. As the home of NASCAR, a sport that arose from the high-speed antics of bootleggers, and Tennessee Williams, a man notorious for both his literary genius and his propensity to imbibe, the Bible Belt has a booze-soaked background. In the recipes and essays in The Southern Foodways Alliance Guide to Cocktails, Jerry Slater and Sara Camp Milam and their cocktail cabinet of contributors bridge the gaps between the culture, history, and practice of drinking in the South.
Nearly one hundred easy-to-follow recipes instruct the home bartender how to create memorable drinks, whether they be light tipples or potent bell ringers. Milam and Slater organize their historical how-to by drink family, starting with day-drinking classics suitable for brunches and tailgating, such as the Michelada and the Ruby Slipper. Variations on the French 75, lovingly lauded by food writer Kat Kinsman, and various juleps, cobblers, and sours are also covered, as are strong finishes such as the Sazerac and the Vieux Carré. A final set of recipes focuses on the punch bowl, with instructions on how to mix such shareable libations as Chatham Artillery Punch and Watermelon Sangria. Milam and Slater also share information on essential tools and glassware with which to stock the home bar, as well as mixing and garnishing techniques.
In addition, the book contains fifteen fun and informative essays on drink culture, including a profile of white whiskey whisperer Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton by historian Mark Essig, a piece on the kitschy pleasure of collecting figurative decanters by syndicated OC Weekly and ¡Ask a Mexican! columnist Gustavo Arellano, and an essay by the dean of cocktail history, David Wondrich, on “The Future of Southern Drinking.”
Lest we drink on an empty stomach, recipes for cocktail bites are provided by multiple James Beard Award nominee Vishwesh Bhatt. The Oxford, Mississippi-based Snackbar chef shares recipes for Benedictine Spread, Catfish Rillettes, Deviled Pickled Eggs, Deviled Ham, Okra Chaat, Pickled Shrimp, Shrimp Toast, Snackbar Pimento Cheese, Sweet Potato Biscuits with Pear Jam, and Spicy, Crunchy Black-Eyed Peas.

You may not know how to pronounce some of the words, but you will surely enjoy a trip back to the halcyon days of livin’ off the land and chewin’ the fat…

Critics hailed Robert Ruark’s “The Old Man and the Boy” as a tale of “infinite warmth, wisdom, and understanding.” This quiet best-seller captured the endearing relationship between a man and his grandson as they fish and hunt the lakes and woods of North Carolina. Now, the Old Man has passed on and the boy has grown up, and it’s the boy’s story that is told in this moving, nostalgic sequel. First published in the late 1950s and never out of print, “The Old Man’s Boy Grows Older” will transport you back to the days when ice cream was made at home and when fishing was not about the fish, but about the stories you told afterward. Readers young and old will appreciate and cherish this unforgettable book.
This timeless classic, originally published in 1957 and never out of print, tells the story of a remarkable friendship between a young boy and his grandfather.

This is truly a treasure piece. Made from my collection of porcelain fragments found in the earth of downtown Historic Charleston, SC.

It is gold edged in a 3 microns layer of 14kt gold and affixed to 14k gold filled chain. Chain around neck measures 16″ and a 1″ chain connects the porcelain piece. Each piece is unique, and therefore won’t be exactly the same as that pictured here.
Made to wear as a daily stacked-ring look, or as a statement cocktail ring, the Oracle Ring is inspired by the myths of ancient Greece and their ties to the sea. 14kt gold filled wrapped bands are hand-forged and designed to resemble sunlight on water. This ring is forged to a size 6 but is adjustable to sizes 5 or 7 with care. Other sizes can happily be created upon request!
A perfect statement every-day pendant necklace, it compliments a casual outfit or wear it as an eye-catcher for dressy occasions. Try it layered with other sea glass necklaces! A 2-3″ sea glass piece rimmed in 3 microns layer of 14kt gold hangs from 14kt gold-filled 30″ chain, and pendant will fall right below the chest. All sea glass is found locally.

Perfect for layering, this is a great every-day, versatile necklace! The simplicity and unique design also make it a great gift, as it fits in with anyone’s style. Hand-hammered 14kt gold filled crescent piece on 14kt gold filled 18″ chain.
