Always hunting for the right dish to bring to the party or for any occasion? Cookbook author Elizabeth Heiskell can help. Her book, “What Can I Bring? Southern Food for Any Occasion Life Serves Up,” has more than 100 recipes to fill any bill.
Need the perfect thing to take over after a death in the family? She suggests a garlic cheese grit soufflé or chocolate chip bundt cake. New baby to celebrate? How about a trio of chicken salad, shrimp salad and pimento cheese for busy parents to snack on?
If you or a friend has to power through “hell on earth moving day,” as her chapter refers to it, Heiskell’s got you covered with what she promises is the best lasagna ever and chocolate Twinkie cake.
A frequent contributor to NBC’s “Today Show” and Southern Living, Heiskell sells home-grown gourmet pickles, jellies, jams, salsas and her popular Bloody Mary Mix under the brand name The Debutante Farmer.
