Over the years we have been honored to be featured in and by magazines, blogs, and sites from across the country. Here’s a taste:


“Do a web search for ‘Southern food’ and you’re bound to find a lot of fried chicken, fried pickles, and fried everything else. However, when that search is amended to ‘Southern food blog,’ one of the first results that appears is something a little different. It is Elena Brent Rosemond-Hoerr’s food blog, Biscuits and Such, and, in a landscape saturated (if you will) with deep-fried everything, it is a breath of fresh air.” Redefining Southern Cooking, One Recipe at a Time, Paprika Southern


“Elena’s fist blog post was her grandmother’s country fried steak, and although the Wilmington, North Carolina resident’s photography has improved throughout the years, her recipes are still as mouth-watering as Granny’s table. With bonus images of her parties, her garden, and even her wedding, it’s easy to feel like you’re invited to dine with a friend.”  The Local Palate
