    For 42 years there was a family-run Italian restaurant called "Sunny Italy" in N. Wilkesboro, NC, a favorite of many... sadly the restaurant closed when Granny Daisy's health declined. ( For those who have never had the pleasure of eating there, here is one reason this restaurant was so special. An extra little twist to creamy Italian dressing on an Iceberg wedge served with Captain's Wafers. I found the recipe shared here ( This dressing is delicious as a veggie dip as well. Nowadays a Roselli grandson & his wife run "Kitchen Roselli" in East Bend, NC, and offering delicious menu selections based on Granny Daisy's recipes. My version of SID is more diabetic friendly and not quite as sweet as the shared version.

    This recipe plus a package of slaw mix is a 10-minute side when any last minute meal is needed. Flavors do blend if made ahead and allowed to chill a few hours... makes a more juicy cole slaw if slaw mix and dressing are combined and allowed to chill a few hours as cabbage releases juices.

    No matter what you call them, these simple little cookies will be hard to eat just one! Asking for the recipe for over 30 years was met with "NO, BUT it's just a little...!" This is where it got interesting... pecan cookie, sugar cookie, brown sugar cookie, molasses cookie... and then the unrecognized key: it really was an accident when making another recipe...??? After searching for years off and on, a few dozen failures trying various recipes to discover the secrets to this little gem, the BREAKTHROUGH came when a cookie TASTED similar but LOOKED totally different. MAKE THE MISTAKE and adjust the rest! So here it is... ENJOY this chewy but crunchy little pecan cookie with just a hint of "praline" lurking in its taste!

    An easy refreshing breakfast smoothie that has enough protein to last all morning without hunger. CHOCOLATE, but can be made without chocolate with just a bit of tweaking. Fruit(s) used can be varied because most fruit goes better with chocolate... lol!

    Recipe #510264

    Not-U-Know-Who's caviar for a crowd... the scale of the recipe found using Black-Eyed Peas if you google looking for an "eatery & café" recipe. There may be a café somewhere using B-E Peas for this "caviar" of the south, but not at the famous chain now come to my home town! This is surprisingly YUMMY and disgustingly healthful... and will be gone if taken to a large gathering covered dish. It is ALMOST addictive to nearly everyone who tries it. For all I know, folks in Mississippi might make this using Black-Eyed peas from a can... if so & this is desirable, use the googled recipe.

    Recipe #510261

    and NEITHER is the recipe that claims to be when googled up! But MY version of Tippah County Caviar is a lot closer... and better because IT IS! I had no idea I'd LOVE TCC when I went to THAT café when it opened... so naturally I wanted the recipe and gooled it! WOW... so misinforming that I'd easily believe it was purposely planted online! Made one small batch as was ONE TIME & realized I'd been bamboozled! So I fixed THE PROBLEM because THIS IS GOOD & SO GOOD FOR YOU! This makes a "small batch" about 4-5 cups.

    No, Paula's boys did not EVER claim making such a dish! However, they did do BBQ Chicken with an original BBQ sauce that is soooooooo good that I keep some made and on hand for both chicken and pork (chops). The sauce is a sweet tomato-based sauce which has just a slight heat that can be made more intense by increasing the mustard powder and/or cayenne pepper. I've done bbq-d chicken in the oven several times since having this BBQ Chicken at friends' home about a year ago. The last time I started with 2 whole chickens (cut into pieces myself) that had extra servings of livers in the cavities. I nestled the livers in one corner of the baking pan and covered them with the BBQ sauce just as the rest of the chicken... and baked the chicken as instructed. The livers were so good that I had to do the recipe again as a LIVERS ONLY version! WOW... unbelievably delicious! But then I love chicken livers (infrequently because of health issues about colesterol, fat, etc.).

    Recipe #447790

    I have always liked corned beef & sandwiches made with it... Reuben's would be the deluxe of such sandwiches IMO. After finding Mike Mills' Crunchy Cole Slaw recipe in his book & adapting it (posted on this site), I thought that I would experiment with a Reuben using the crunchy slaw instead of sauerkraut! I was actually a bit stunned by how good the results turned out... I deemed it "the YOUNG Reuben" since the slaw is not aged like sauerkraut! Cole slaw & Reuben lovers might enjoy this variation of the sandwich! Recipe is for one sandwich... easily multiplied for more servings.

    Every BBQ novice (experts, too) should buy Mike Mills' book "Peace, Love, & BBQ" for recipes and BBQ lore... what a fun read and window into many regional favorites. Mike is certainly confident (and its justified): he declares that HIS Carolina Style Mustard BBQ Sauce would be used by the legendary Maurice Bessinger (SC BBQ restauranteur) if only he had it! I told this to my neighbor who likes mustard sauces & has been known to frequent Maurice's establishments when I gave him a sample made according to Mike's recipe. Later on he informed me that Mike could be right... he liked Mike's Sauce better than Maurice's. Moreover, he wanted the recipe! I have tweeked the recipe a bit and love this sauce better than all other mustard-based sauces I have tried. It is also delicious on HAM sandwiches & sausage biscuits!

    The mind boggled when I saw this recipe in a CHURCH cookbook... I thought "revolting" so why was I compelled to try it and why am I posting it here? For privacy reasons I will generalize to keep the church & location confidential but think in terms of the area in which you live. Imagine the oldest church in YOUR area having this recipe in its cookbook which was prepared under the guidance of 15 women in the church: all with prominent names in social and political circles spanning generations. WOULD these women include a terrible recipe? Would any of them LIE to you about its being worthy of making? HMMMMM... suffice it for me to say I'm not sure I'd declare it really tastes like pork! However, I will say that IF anyone served this BBQ does NOT know it has tuna in it, I suspect most will not guess tuna as the first guess. In fact, this IS fairly tasty IF you can get past the fact that TUNA is the basic ingredient! Are you brave enough to try? It is low cal, low fat, high protein, and diabetic friendly! (The book was old enough that I did have to tweak the ingredients because tuna is no longer in 6+ ounce cans.)

    Recipe #446236

    The aroma filling the house as these cook will tantalize and smell so delicious that you will hardly be able to wait for the beans to become tender for a taste of these "simply delicious" pintos! My M-i-L was a simple Southern cook... everything was delicious & mostly "no recipe." Just came together because she willed it to be biscuits, cornbread, pintos, greens, corn casserole, oyster dressing, etc. Her pintos were my exposure to HOW GREAT pintos and cornbread could be! I'll admit that SHE did not use tomatoes in her beans... simple food being the key. The tomatoes I owe to the vendors in the Charleston Market with their 15-bean mixes and recipe variations for great pots of beans . A little more labor and time than some dishes, but inexpensive and WELL WORTH the time for a hearty delicious meal. (Prep Time does NOT include slow or quick soak time... only actual work time) Keeps a week plus in refrigerator & freezes well.

    In his book "Peace, Love, & Barbecue" (a highly recommended buy) Mike shares a recipe for a simple vinegar-based slaw that is very popular at his 17th Street Bar & Grill. I love that it stays crunchy even if not used right away. (I've had it keep well up to a week.) His recipe makes enough for 10-12, and since there are ONLY two slaw lovers in the house, it is a bit too much except for big holidays. I would definitely use HIS recipe in the book for festive gatherings! So inspired by it, I have adapted & changed it for convenience (use slaw mix) and a smaller quantity. It is a key ingredient in my favorite new sandwich... The Young Reuben. Make your favorite Reuben but substitute this "young" slaw for the "aged" sauerkraut! I suspect a respectable "creamy" slaw could be made using this recipe by adding a little mayo or sour cream to taste & reducing the amount of vinegar by at least half.
