This is a collection of my recipes. Many are quite old, and have been handed down through generations of my very Southern family. There are others that I have collected over decades of cooking. The purpose of this blog is to preserve and pass them on to the younger generations of my family, and to share with old and new friends. You are welcome and appreciated here.

Emma Ruth's Family Recipes Restaurant
My youngest son, David, had been asking me about family recipes for a few months. He is the one who made the Red Beans and Rice in an earlier post. There had been some casual talk about opening a restaurant, using family recipes to make from scratch dishes. Everyone thought naming it for his, and wife Kim's grandmothers, the inspiration and origin of many of the recipes, was a good idea. That, in a nutshell, mixed with his entrepreneurial spirit, is how Emma Ruth's Family Recipes restaurant was born. The doors opened at the end of February, and I am proud to report that the cooked from scratch, home cooking restaurant has been quite successful so far. The food is very good. If you are even in Bentonville Arkansas, stop in for a good meal, or just to say hey, y'all!
Many of the recipes for their dishes are on this blog. I am proud of you, David and Kim!
