Welcome Friend,

I’m Willie Crawford, and I created this website back
in 1997 to share with you soul food recipes I learned while growing
up on the farm in North Carolina. Recipes like: Collard Greens, Sweet
Potato Pie, Southern Pound Cake, Homemade Biscuits, Banana Pudding,
North Carolina-style Pulled Pork Barbecue, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw,
Hush Puppies, Southern Fried Chicken, Fried Catfish, Pinto Beans With
Ham Hocks, and tons of others.

When I first built this site I started out by posting
about 20 of these great recipes right on the website. Then I invited
all website visitors to join our mailing list and share their favorite
recipes with each other. Since then, literally thousand of soul food
and old-family recipes have been shared by website visitors.

Now we’re inviting YOU to join the fun. To become a
part of our online family.

Every day, list members email in their request for hard
to find recipes to list members. Everyday, other list members share
favorite recipes with the thousands of list members. These daily requests
are edited and and the list is sent out to tens of thousands of members
by our trusty editor Joleene Smith!

Here is what some of our list
members have
to say about our recipe exchange mailing list:

 

“All the wonderful recipes that are found on Willie’s
site are straight from the hearts and souls of the sharers! So much
love and joy are a part of these offerings. My heart AND my tummy
are happy with each post that comes to me…. Don’t ever stop!!!!!

“For over a year, I believe, I’ve been receiving awesome
recipes from www.chitterlings.com. Whenever I request a recipe, someone
ALWAYS respond w/ not only that particular recipe, but more. I’ve
been educated on many things. After forwarding a few recipes to my
sister, she too signed up to begin receiving recipes from this site.

The people are really great and I plan to continue to
be apart of the www.chitterlings.com family for a long time. Thanks
for the Great Recipes!!!

“Hello to all of ya’s

I have been getting your recipes off line for a while
now, the food is very similar to what I was brought up on. I like
the pinch of this or that because that is exactly what I do and it
is very hard to write down a recipe for that reason.

I have been passing them around the office where I work,
and telling everyone about them.

I finally got my recipe book yesterday and just love
it. I could not put it down until I had gone cover to cover.

Thanks again.

Mary from Sarasota, Florida”

“Gee I can’t even imagine what cooking was like before
“more soulful recipes” came about. I really look forward to reading
the recipes daily. I have gained as much from the reply posting as
the recipes themselves. If I don’t get a post daily I really feel
cheated. I have saved each and every post so I can refer back to them.
Thanks for giving me such good stuff.

Charlotte”

“HI ! ALL : Every since i signed up for the receipe
service i began to experience my childhood over again. I can remember
that my mom and granny would go to the farm when he was butchering
the hogs, and they would get a couple heads to make head cheese and
get the brains for my dad.

He loved pork brains with his eggs in the morning.
Also the feet, mom would either bbq them or pan fry them. I was also
raised in North Carolina, High Point.

The one thing we always loved is pork fat hunny!!! Now
that i,m getting older i have got to watch what i eat, but for my
comfort food i always return to the hog. Keep up the good work with
all the various receipes you provide to us! thank you! We love the
great cookbook we purchased, its makes me home sick for some more
of moms cooking.

“I am an older, semi-retired batchelor that has always
enjoyed cooking. I read most recipes that I find but use few as presented.
I always modify or use them for ideas to create something of my own.
Your site gives me a wealth of ideas and would be lost without it.

Thanks for youe effort.

"I really enjoy the chitterlings.com recipe site.
I like a lot of old fashioned southern and soul food recipes, which
I find lots of on chitterlings.com.

Thanks, Debbie Bliss”

“I really enjoy your newsletter as I get some teriffic
recipes! Each newsletter has at least one, if not more, recipe that
I look forward to making. Thanks for your time and efforts.

Sheila Torres”

“Since I have joined Chitterlings.com I have introduced
it to my best friend and we have cooked and compared. I have tried
several of the recipes and also use some of them as a basis for when
I want to get into the kitchen and just “experiment.” I encourage
anyone who is reading and not yet a member to join. It’s a perfect
site for recipes of anything you have ever thought of cooking or for
foods you’ve tasted and said… “I wonder what’s in this to make it
soooo good.

Much love and God bless
Bethany Wells”

“Joleene,

I look forward to your daily messages, as I would a
call or visit from a good friend. The recipes are wonderful. As a
suggestion, it would be great if your site incorporated all of the
new recipes into some type of search engine. Thanks again for all
that you do.

Cynthia Engram”

“Jolene,

Just wanted you to know what a great list you have.
I am the hospitality chairperson for the Sierra Club in my area. I
provide “goodies” for the general meetings, and have the executive
committee meeting at my home. I also provide “goodies” for the Historical
Society and the genealogical society in my area each month. I ran
out of new things to take and make until I subscribed to your list.
It is wonderful!!! I have used many of the recipes and not one failure.
I have been asked for many recipes which I have copied off for many
people. Thank you for the great job that you do.

Jakki”

 

“Joleene,

I can not tell you how happy I am that I discovered
this site. I’ve been a member for a while so I really don’t remember
how I did find it.

I love the recipes that I’ve gotten from this site.
I look forward also to the emails with recipes in them. I’ve tried
so many of the recipes and have found them flawless. I love comfort
food and a lot of these recipes have provided that for my family and
myself. I love to cook so I have definitely come to the right place.

I am also looking forward to ordering the new cookbook.
I am such a collector of cookbooks but for some reason I feel this
will be the best one yet!!!

“I have been able to converse with a diverse group of
people from across the country, individuals who were willing to answer
questions regarding recipes, ingredients and recipe scaling. I have
gotten some wonderful advice, and excellent recipes.

Lynnette Brantley”

“I enjoy reading the recipes and have used several of
them. Yesterday I tried the Sweet Potato Pound Cake recipe. It was
delicious and really moist. I have already shared the recipe with
several people. Thank you.

Charlotte Hanner”

“Love this site!!! I get some many GOOD recipes.

Debbie McGowan”

“Chitterlings is a wonderful place. I have been a member
for a long time and I have shared favorite recipes with others. I
think the best part is learning new soulfood recipes that I had heard
of but never tried.

Although I live in Ohio my father was born in Virginia
and raised in West Virginia. His love of southern cooking encourged
me to learn more and try more.

My German grand mother gave me the other side. She taught
me dishes to die for, that are also inexpensive.

The people here who share foods from other cultures
are so great. I have tried Mexican foods that are wonderful.

Everyone should at least give Chitterlings a try and
read a few of the messages. If you aren’t happy you can always unsubscibe
but I can’t imagine that happening.

Best wishes to Willie and Joleen.

Lois from Ohio”

“I came across Chitterlings.com quite by accident. I
was searching for a recipe and Chitterlings.com was one of the sites
that the search engine found. The name was very unusual but to the
point. I thought “this must be a soul food site”, and it was. I was
absolutely thrilled to find some of the food my grandmother cooked
in recipe form. I love soul food and I like to cook it but could never
seem to find the recipes that I wanted. I ordered the cookbook the
first time that I logged on to Chitterlings.com. I have told all of
my family and friends about the site and the cookbook.

Keep up the good work!

Barbara”

“This recipe site has truly been a wonderful experience
for me since first discovered it last year! MORE SOULFUL RECIPES stands
in a class all by itself! I have not missed a day since I became a
member to visit the site and to read new and old recipes. I have met
new friends and found many wonderful recipes from all over the country.
I have never experienced a site that had so much to offer to it’s
members!

Lettie Griffin”

“Dear Joleen,

I want you and everyone else to know that I have thoroughly
enjoyed the terrific recipes you send. Your’s is the first one I look
at every day and I have tried quite a few recipesand they were delicious.
I love southern cooking and look forward to receiving many many more.
Let’s sign up good people and you’ll see what you have been missing

. Jacqueline in Pa.”

“I look forward to new recipes almost daily.Different
recipes I’ve never seen, I get compliments on the food I have prepared
from the recipes.I would be disappointed if I did not have my email
filled with great recipes.Please keep them coming.

Pat Waller”

“Dear Chitterlings, I have been a member for some time,
and I just love this site! Its a great way of getting wonderful recipes
(like grandma used to make) and to share some of my family favorites.
Keep up the great job and keep them comin’

Thanks so much for an easy way to stay in contact with
some great cooks!

Sincerely Yours,

Tara Norris”

"JOLENE:

Your cooking newsletter is most informative. The recipes
are great! They are down home-cooking recipes that I grew up with.
I can relate to each of them. Not only did I learn cooking from my
mother, but I also learned from my grand-mother who lived on a farm.
Their meals consisted of foods they grew themselves. A lot of the
recipes are some I remember well, the others are some I had forgotten
about. The section where people write in wanting recipes are interesting
also. Each of us have different tastes and we are willing to share
the recipes. I also lived in Louisiana and learned to cook everything
CAJUN I could. I am sorry I do not have a photo available to send.
It would be interesting to see face to face the persons you are sharing
recipes with.

DORIS”

“Dear Joleene:

I have been a member of the list since about June and
I have gotten some really great recipes.

I was interested in some Eggplant recipes before I joined
the list and I got several good ones.

One thing I like is the fact that you get so many variations
of recipes. You can pick and choose whichever one you like.

Keep up the good work! Thanks,

Cola Harris”
