This chapter discusses the role of casserole dishes in Southern Baptist life, focusing mostly on the hospitality and friendship shown among Southern Baptist women. Casseroles have become embedded in southern culture, and women are still the ones who make this economical and convenient dish. Providing meals and other forms of nurture is an important part of how Southern Baptist women embody gender and express their complex identities.
