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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
I'm always looking for ways to use up leftovers. I came up with this one last night, and it was delicious served over wild rice. I would rather have used a can of tomatoes, but hubby won't eat a cooked tomato that he can actually see...oh well!
When it is hot outside, who wants to heat up the oven and the house. These are great to go along side with any meat or fish dish. I clipped this recipe out of a Taste of Home Magazine. Updated 7/25/11, I now have made the recipe and the whole family loved the potatoes this way. I also added onion, but the recipe doesn't call for it. To really make it easy, I used "Simply Potatoes" already peeled and sliced potatoes, and used an 8"x8" foil pan; so quick and simple, yet so flavorful.
I have fond memories of having this dish with my family when I was growing up. My mother had to think of ways to stretch a meal to feed a family of five as well as something her finicky kids would all enjoy ... and actually eat. This was one of her many recipes that was a hit with me and my brothers. It's was easy, quick, and goes a long way. There were never any leftovers. When I decide to make this meal and want to use fresh carrots I save some time by peeling and slicing the carrots up the day before, cook in melted salted butter until semi-soft, and store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Just dump 'em in along with the peas after the meat has been browned up. Have fun changing things up or tweeking it to suit your tastes. I make it this way because my husband is a meat and potatoes man -- nothing fancy. Just some good eatin'.
This recipe is one that my Grandma Lewis would make when she had the ingredients on hand -- because the family lived deep in the mountains of West Virginia a quick trip to the store was not feasible especially during the winters months. My grandma was a terrific cook and never measured ingredients (old school of little bit of this, little bit of that) but it didn't matter because whatever she cooked always tasted good and filled you up! This recipe is one of my dad's favorites and I hope you like it, too!
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!
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.
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! :-)
