Fig Bread

Figs are one of those versatile fruits that I love to use in baking and cooking. I’ve made fig jam and a fig upside down cake and now this delicious fig bread. If you’ve never made a quick bread, they are really simple to pull together and are perfect for breakfast or dessert.  The figs in this recipe along with the pecans give this a fruit cake kinda feel, but without the dried fruit. I hope you try this bread…

Orange Pistachio Scone Bread

If you’ve been around Jem of the South long enough you know I have a slight obsession with scones. A few weeks ago I was scrolling through the gram as they say and came across a recipe for scone bread. My baking antenna immediately went up and knew I had to try this take on the scone.

For example, last year I finally made gingerbread after buying molasses two years in a row and never using it. This year, I dug my heels in and finally…

Sweet Cornbread Muffins

Cornmeal is  a southern staple.  Growing up my family used cornmeal for savory corn bread, sweet corn bread (my favorite) and as a batter to fry fish.  Not one person in my family didn’t have a supply of cornmeal stashed in their pantry. That being said, I would be remiss if I didn’t include a recipe for corn bread muffins in this series. Although the corn bread muffin isn’t very fancy, it’s a really good muffin and serves as a…

Delicious Peaches

I’m a South Carolina girl, born and raised and I’m very proud that South Carolina ranks 2nd in peach production behind California which is 1st. Georgia, aka, the “Peach State” ranks 3rd and has some pretty darn good peaches as well! However, last week I was so happy to get my hands on some fresh South Carolina peaches that I could hardly contain myself. I was equally as happy to find a great new recipe to use these delicious peaches,…
