From, "At Your Service...Southern Recipes, Places and Traditions," published in cooperation with your Daily Inbox Newsletter.


2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups water
3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 cup uncooked regular grits

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic. Saute until tender. Stir in the water, salt, pepper, dry mustard and turmeric. Bring to a boil. Stir in the grits gradually. Reduce the heat. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Stir in the egg yolks, Cheddar cheese and hot sauce.

2 teaspoons sesame oil

Process garlic, ginger, lemongrass, green onions, basil, parsley, cilantro, jalapeno, nuts, vinegar, and salt in a food processor until smooth.

1 small red bell pepper, seeded and minced

Sift flour with soda and salt; add to chocolate mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating after each addition. Beat until smooth. Beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks; fold into batter. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly pressed in center.
