If cooks and bakers are two separate breeds, then Erin Jeanne McDowell, an award-winning food stylist, author, and recipe developer, is a unifier. Her newest cookbook, Savory Baking: Recipes for Breakfast, Dinner, and Everything in Between, is a dreamscape of supple, buttery flatbreads, cushy cheese-stuffed pretzels, and delicate, zesty crepes.
McDowell hails from Kansas, but the two stars of this dish—braised greens and hominy—are Southern cooking staples. “They are each delicious on their own but together are a real delight,” she writes. This all-day pie is hearty and cozy for winter and, thanks to a generous, flexible dose of greens, fresh enough for spring.
