Some of our family's favorite dishes from bbq to casseroles, good eatin's to scrumptious vitals, from tantilizing treats that titillate the tastebuds to delicious, decadent desserts! Ya'll come back now, ya hear?!
This recipe comes from a very good friend of my aunt's in West Virginia. Her name was Mildred Reynolds and she was a phenomenal cook AND baker. I remember having these biscuits with some warmed canned peaches, which Mrs. Reynolds had also put up herself. I had made this recipe many years ago and the biscuits were so good my mother even noted (with a star) "delicious" next to the recipe. I'm glad to have found the recipe again and even made a batch to go with some fried chicken I made for dinner -- and they still are delicious!!! Unfortunately, Mrs. Reynolds has since passed away but I'm thankful to still have access to her best recipes. Hope you like these tasty biscuits just as much as we do.
My Aunt Louise in Tennessee shared this recipe with me, it has been a dear family favorite for years. This is a VERY moist, sweet, sticky, and EASY to make crowd pleasing dessert! This cake is so cherished in our home, that it has its very own Fleur-de-lis Bundt Pan!
This is a "make ahead" recipe and is quite easy on the budget. It can also be changed up for what you have on hand ... very user-friendly. My aunt in the mountains of West Virginia is a great cook and I adapted this to meet our tastes from her recipe. I've made this several times and always receive positive remarks, including one of my sisters-in-law who gave just one word ...."WOW!!".... which is one of the best compliments you can get from a family member! I normally make it with fresh/frozen vegetable ingredients, which is the recipe posted. My husband is a meat-eater so I'll make another smaller version with what he likes (I'll brown up or cook the selection of meat(s) and cut them up before adding to the first five ingredients.). This is quite a tasty, very filling and satisfying meal. Enjoy!
Ruby Mae Bromley operated Mrs. Bromley's Dining Room in Clarendon, Texas many years ago. She was known throughout the area for her good country home cooking. If you like fried okra, you'll love this way of preparing it.
Mac and cheese is one of the all-time comfort foods. When my kids' taste finally outgrew the boxed stuff, I came up with this recipe to satisfy their need for cheese (my daughter, in particular, is a cheese junkie). I'm sure this recipe contains influences from my Mother and Grandmother. It goes great with other comfort food staples like meatloaf, roast, pork roast, etc.
This meal is one we always eat too much of. I recommend using Sweet Baby Ray's or Jack Daniel's original BBQ sauce. A good quality sauce makes a lot of difference. I serve it with my Sweet, Creamy Coleslaw #100526.
Yes, I know, lots of pot roast recipes here, but I tell you this is my all time favorite. Even better then the ones that you dump all of the pre packaged gravy mixes and salad dressings in the pot. Homemade, just like a good mid-western mom meant it to be!
I love this chicken recipe--after messing around with oil fried chicken, I found this recipe and it's exactly what I was looking for, darn close to "real" fried chicken without the hassle of oil frying. There is marinating time, but otherwise super easy. Don't be intimidated by th amount of hot pepper sauce in the marinade, the chicken will pick up only some of the heat.
This was my husband's grandmother's recipe. It is so good. Store-bought pickles don't even come close. This is a good recipe for anyone who would like to try pickling, but hasn't done it before. It's quite straight forward, not a lot of ingredients.
This is a recipe I've worked on for quite some time. I believe I finally got the right combination of consistency, spices and tasty results some of you may have been looking for. My DH prefers chicken legs so that's what I've posted but I'm sure you can apply this to what you like. Also, I know there's already several fried chicken recipes on here .... so .... here's another one! :-)
I've always loved homemade spaghetti sauce and this one is my favorite. If you like your sauce chunky don't run through food mill, I usually make some smooth and some chunky. Also the original recipe called for 2 Hot peppers to be cooked in the oil with the garlic and onions.
You can use this recipe to can any amount. I sometimes do only 1 quart (if that's all the ripe tomatoes I have on hand). I have been making this recipe for almost 40 years and my Mother and Grandmother did it the same way for many, many years, and my Mother-in-law has been doing it this way for almost 70 years. While some folks advocate adding acids, I don't do this. I never have and never will put lemon juice in my tomatoes. I put a teaspoon of canning salt in each quart PERIOD. I have yet to "lose" a jar of tomatoes and nobody has ever gotten sick or died from them either. You can be assured that this recipe is tested, tried and true.
