July 20 Traditional Southern Summer Dinner

July 20 Traditional Southern Summer Dinner: My grandmother was a wonderful Southern Cook in Mountain View Arkansas. My father and mother owned and operated a restaurant in Sonoma, California. where I grew-up. With this heritage I enjoy menus that fuse traditional Southern Cuisine with California Fresh. I trust you will enjoy these updated Southern recipes.
