Have you ever had that friend that tells you how awesome your birthday gift is going to be, except that your birthday is months away??! “You’ll love it,” she says. And then you get to count down until you actually get to open the darn thing?!
Well I might be that friend… Because I am here to announce that I am WRITING A BOOK!!!!!!! And I am so excited I can’t even wait to share with all of you except that I can’t yet. Because it isn’t available yet; ya know on account of it not being completely written yet and all.
But the good news is, I can give you some of the details and even share some glimpses into some of the dishes I’ve been making. First off, it is a Grain + Dairy Free SOUTHERN COOKBOOK. It encompasses everything South of the Mason-Dixon Line, including TEX-MEX, CREOLE/CAJUN, SOUL FOOD, GULF SEAFOOD, and plain ol’ MAMA’S HOME COOKIN’. I wanted to share with y’all what I know best, and quite frankly this is IT!!!
I will have everything from CHICKEN N’ WAFFLES, COLLARD GREENS, APPLE CRISP, CHICKEN FRIED STEAK, OKRA, FULLY LOADED NACHOS, CHOCOLATE PECAN PIE, FRIED SHRIMP, CRISPY BEEF TACOS, and on and on and on. There are over 100 recipes of mouth watering SOUTHERN FOOD, but made without grain, dairy, or refined sugar. And to top it off, many recipes are egg and nut free, for those with food sensitivities.
So the bad news is y’all have a little longer to wait. But the good news is, when this releases, it will help BRIDGE THE GAP from those homemade favorites made with white flour and white sugar to a cleaner lifestyle! Can I get a YEEHAW??! Now take a quick lookie look at these tasty morsels I cooked up for you below. And know that y’all on my SUBSCRIBER LIST will be the FIRST to get your mitts on these! Stay tuned Y’ALL!!!

I was hoping this would be your news today Jen, looking forward to it!
E-book or hard copy?
Also, a big thanks for your yuca dough….I live in Australia and hurrah! At last I found frozen cassava (dunno how different the result would be, can’t find fresh), so finally this week I’ve been able to experiment with your yuca dough! Absolutely thrilled with the results – it really fills a void no other Paleo food can. Planning to paleofy my grandma’s pierogi next *blissful sigh*
Hi Cindy, it is a print book (not e-book). I am so glad to hear you found yuca! I hope you have a blast with it. Thanks for your support!!
How EXCITING! I have loved following your recipes and I know this book will be a hit. Keep up the amazing work!
Awww Thanks Marissa!!!
If you’d be willing to share the dinner rolls recipe in advance, I would be ever so grateful. I, of course, intend on buying the book, as well, but it would be so nice to have dinner rolls. Are they made using your yuca dough? I am trying really hard to avoid using refined flours…excluding coconut flour, of course.
I wish I could share it all but unfortunately my contract with the publisher says that all of my recipes have to be original (except a couple from the blog). Hang tight, I promise I am as eager as you are!
I’m excited about getting this cookbook. I’ve been such an inspiration and have kept me on track with your wonderfully simple yet delicious recipes. It’ll be the first cookbook I own, one income family eating healthy doesn’t afford me much, and because I believe that they recipes will be nothing short of fantastic, I’m paying it forward by gifting one to my nieces who will be off to college next year.
Cory, that’s so amazing!!! I really appreciate your support and hope it brings lots of joy into your kitchen and your tummy!

tried the pecan waffles from Down South Paleo. The waffles would not release from the sides of the waffle maker. We added additional oil to the batter and did not get any better results. I oiled the plates well but the waffle separated into a top and bottom piece every time.
Hi Carla, All waffle makers are different, it may not be an issue of the fat/oil per say, as there is a lot of fat in the pecan batter itself. I’ve tried this recipe in 3 different waffle irons and 1 of them in particular does seem a little more troublesome. The other two create perfect waffles, so it’s definitely a variable to consider. I hope you’ll enjoy some of the other recipes in the book!

Just got Down South Paleo for Christmas and I love it! Can hardly wait for the Yiddish cookbook to be published:)
I’m a little confused about the yuca/cassava flour relationship. If I am unable to buy yuca in my grocery, would it be possible to use cassava flour somehow?
Thank you for your book! Hardly know which recipe to cook first!
You can use cassava flour for certain recipes. For example I have a cassava flour tortilla called Weeknight Paleo Tortilla on the blog here. Let me know if you have any specific recipe questions!
