Deep South Delicacies in Mooreville is the fruition of a dream for Amanda Sanderford decades in the making, learning to prepare traditional comfort foods at her mother’s side growing up.
Amanda says “Food has always been a big part of my families’ lives and always seems to bring folks together. It brings comfort for the grieving, celebration for the new mom and dad, and is overall an expression of love.”
After having a career as an RN for over 25 years, she was laid off due to unforeseen changes in the workplace. This however, gave Amanda the push she needed to turn her life long passion into her new career, catering to others through her love of cooking.
Amanda says her specialties are old fashioned fried pies made completely from scratch and original cookies including Mandy Cakes (Oatmeal Creme Pies), The Elvis (two banana oatmeal cookies sandwiched with peanut butter creme filling), and Pansy Ramseys (named after her grandmother, this cookie consist of two old fashioned tea cakes with chocolate frosting in between).
Some of Amanda’s other most requested baked goods are homemade layer cakes including strawberry, fresh carrot, Italian creme, German Chocolate, tradition chocolate, peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter with chocolate drizzle, yellow cake with raspberry or lemon filling iced with cream cheese, lemon icebox pies, pecan pies, chocolate and coconut pies, as well as fun treats for special occasions!
Deep South Delicacies will have expanded offerings soon, to include casseroles, meats, veggies, and more!
What I ordered: A little bit of everything!
For a sample menu, I was offered dumplings with roasted chicken, southern green beans, cornbread, and sweet tea. You can bet this country boy took that offer in a heartbeat! The green beans were loaded with pieces of meat for the perfect pairing. The dumplings was prepared with the chicken baked separately and added last for added spice and flavor. So good!!!
Amanda says that her type of cooking is traditional southern. “Food that taste like your best memories”
While visiting, I sampled several baked goods…you know, for research. From cupcakes and cookies, to made from scratch fried pies. After my tasting tour of several of her specialties, I found that Deep South Delicacies was the perfect name for Amanda’s bakery! Her fried pies alone, with tender flaky crust and fresh filling, will melt in your mouth!
