Ahhhh, comfort foods. From our childhood or from our present, comfort foods deserve a special place in our hearts and cookbooks. Here are some of mine and yours! Cover photo is Cast Iron Skillet Meatloaf.
These beans smell so good when they are cooking and the results are a tasty, New Orleans style red beans and rice. I have tried several recipes but this one is easier than the others I've tried with an excellent result. Serve with cornbread or corn muffins and your meal is complete. Recipe is from Taste of Home magazine.
There are probably a thousand different ways to make a hot chicken salad casserole, but this is, in my opinion, one of the tastiest and simplest. This recipe comes from "Miss Daisy" King, a Nashville cooking legend who made this recipe and many others famous at her "Miss Daisy's Tearoom" in Franklin, Tennessee. I like to serve this for supper with fresh fruit, hot rolls and lemon icebox pie for dessert.
This recipe was from the local newspaper in Wichita Falls, Texas. Mom fixed it for Easter, Thanksgiving, and Xmas dinner every year...My mom was a great cook! Great replacement for traditional Turkey or Ham.
This recipe goes back years, it is a family favorite that I still make to this day, and I have also make it using cooked chicken or cooked turkey in place of the tuna, is a easy basic casserole, but it has tons of flavor!
This is a delicious casserole that can be made using either tuna or 1-1/2 cups or more of cooked cubed chicken or even cooked turkey
--- for a thinner sauce use 1 cup of milk or half and half instead of 3/4 cup, prep time includes boiling the egg noodles, if you are not a garlic-lover then you may omit the garlic powder and to zing the flavor up even more add in 1-1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Chicken-Fried Steak is so 'Texas', and the Austin dance hall has one of the best in the state. One of the old traditional ways to tenderize the beef was to pound the "heck" out of it with a Coke bottle or saucer. Rich, peppery gravy is a must for a successful chicken-fried steak. I recommend a round steak, pounded into tender submission by hand rather than machine-tenderized cube steaks.
