Where In The World Are YOU?!


One thing we love about this blog is that we get to hear from people all over the world who read Southern In-Law!

We've seen photos of our recipes made in places all over the globe - from Bali to Alaska and everywhere inbetween. 

Since you know so much about us, I thought it'd be fun to play a little game to get to know more about you! 

All you've got to do is leave a comment below telling us; 
  1. Where you're from
  2. What food you associate with your home town/country/childhood

But in case you're new around here, we'll start. Kristy is from Sydney Australia (where we live today) whilst Jesse is originally from Louisiana USA but also lived in Mississippi (you can read the story of how we met here). 

Fairy Bread is one food we both associate with Australia however it's also the one food Jesse will not try (because he hates sprinkles - WHO HATES SPRINKLES?!?!!) whilst Jesse links Louisiana with his Nanny's Jambalaya which we have since perfected with slightly altered ingredients here in Australia.

Your turn!
Leave a comment below so that we can get to know more about you - you don't even have to sign in, just click "Name" and then select "I'd rather post as guest" underneath!

We love hearing from you guys because then we don't feel like we're talking to ourselves, rambling on like idiots :P

  1. I'm a fellow Aussie (Melbourne) and I have to agree with your fairy bread choice (it's not a kids party unless there's fairy bread!) but I also link Vegemite and cheese sandwiches with my childhood and sausages wrapped in white bread are definitely an aussie food for me!

  2. Born in Kentucky, currently living just outside Sydney Australia! the food that reminds me the most of home is fresh corn on the cob smothered in butter, and home grown green beeans that only my grandma could manage to make right lolz

  3. You are so right with the sausages wrapped in white bread - everytime our church has any event on we have a sausage sizzle and I bet it would be totally odd to any foreigner (though Jesse is a converted fan!) haha.


    Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment! xx

  4. Oh yum! Both of those are simple but seriously delicious foods. I am fussy with green beans so I totally get how you could only like your grandma's haha!


    Thank you for taking the time to comment - and for reading our blog, Sarah! xx

  8. I was born and raised in Wyoming! Still living here! I associate any kind of beef meal with WY, but Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes & gravy & corn on the cob are definitely a staple that I associate home with!

  9. Arkansas, the US of A. I would have to say either farm fresh summer tomatoes or fried catfish are staples from Arkansas

  12. Fun! I'm currently in Sacramento, California but originally an East Coaster. I associate tacos with California and Brunswick Stew with Richmond, VA!

  13. Hey Corina, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment and read our blog!


    I have to know; hot chips or crunchy chips on your marmite and chip rolls?


    I also really need to get onto making a healthier sponge cake recipe!

  14. Hey there! Thank you so much for reading and taking the time to leave a comment. It sounds like we really need to visit Michigan - we love Farmer's Markets!

  15. If you mean Calcasieu LA we both definitely know where that is! Catfish is one food Jesse's pawpaw is convinced he's going to get me to eat but I'm not so convinced because I'm not a fish eater! :P

    ReplyDelete
  16. Haha, it's hard because all of the food you grow up with you consider normal when to an outsider it might be totally new!

  17. Chicken fried steak is something Jesse's been trying to get me to make a healthier version of so perhaps I need to do just that! Thanks for reading, Laurie!

  18. Hey there! Thank you for taking the time to read our blog - and leave a comment! Vegan cakes? Now that sounds like something I'd be into :P

  19. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, Elizabeth! Maple syrup is a staple in our house and sooooooooo delish!

  20. Hey Alex! Thanks for taking the time to comment - I have no idea what Brunswick stew is but now I'm off to google it! xx

  21. I agree! None of the fake stuff for us, here. :) I haven't ever had fairy bread, but I have no aversion to sprinkles, so maybe I should!

  22. I'm from Minnesota! Two stereotypical Minnesotan dishes that come to mind are "hot dishes" (i.e. casseroles--typical potluck fare here) and wild rice! And I always associate my mom's chocolate chip oatmeal cookies with my childhood... I've tried and tried to make them exactly like she does, but they're never quite the same as when she makes them. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ohhh how I love wild rice! At the moment I'm all about "hot dishes" too - if it comes out of the oven or arrives steaming hot off the stove, I'm all for it :P

  24. When you go back to LA, try the thin catfish from Sissy's in Hineston. You will love it! In my opinion it is best with some lemon juice squeezed over it and a few dashes of Louisiana hot sauce. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I know exactly where SIssy's is so I'll have to add that to my to-do list!

  26. Hi Kristy
    Crunchy chips as in crisps (as the English call them) Its the best combination :)
