Southern recipes inspired by "The Help"

Classic Southern recipes are featured in The Help, both the movie and the novel, and are as much a part of the action as Aibileen, Minny, Skeeter, and Hilly. Here are a few of the featured foods.

Chocolate Icebox Pie  Law mercy. Even Minny's Terrible Awful Thing couldn't keep us from trying this ultra-decadent pie made with homemade chocolate filling. It's topped with whipped cream and chopped chocolate candy bar pieces; what more could you ask for?

Creamy Grits Casserole Celia never met a pork chop she couldn't burn, but she could do up grits like the queen of Sugar Ditch. If grits are a regular on your breakfast or brunch menu, try this decadent twist: Grits Casserole. Flavored with Gouda, Cheddar, and a dash of red pepper, these grits are no sides dish—they're the star of the show. As Abilene says, "That's all grits is, a vehicle. For whatever it is you rather be eating." Melty cheese, anyone?

Curried Chicken Tea Sandwiches  Everyone knows that chicken salad is best when made the night before so that the flavors can meld together, so when Elizabeth asks Abileen if she's got the salad ready 20 minutes before bridge club, it's a wonder Abileen doesn't faint on the spot. Next time, she should try this chicken salad recipe; the hit of curry will serve as smelling salts, should the need arise again.

Southern Sweet Tea  In the South, the way a person handles a beverage can be telling. Stirring the sugar into the tea a little too long? We're deep in thought. Tinkling the ice around in the glass? We may not like your outfit. Holding the ice-cold glass of tea against our wrist? We're just plain hot! Cool off with a tall glass of the South's signature drink.
