down home cookin': bbq tempeh

i grew up in california and now live in massachusetts...i have no real idea of what down home cookin' entails. and if it includes deep frying a
meat and cheese lasagna , then count me out (paula dean: i think it's cute when you say "yall" and "oh my gracious", but geeeez...)! but if down home cookin' includes the simple pleasures of baked sweet potatoes, stick to your ribs bbq temeph and collards, i'm all for it.
