This recipe comes from a Texas cookbook called The Texas Experience. I've lost the book since moving, but had some favorite recipes written elsewhere. I make this every year at Christmas as it is so good.
I use toasted, chopped pecans or walnuts.
Cooking time does not include cooling time.
I went through all the haystack recipes on zaar and did not see these. They are a little different as they don't use the chow mein noodles. They are easy and too good to leave off. I want to try these with dry roasted peanuts and maybe butter instead of the peanut butter just for a change,there is something about the sweet and salty that makes you keep eating them.
This too came out of my Texas cookbook.
I don't remember how many these make so I took a wild guess.
This is another Cajun dish that is my personal favorite. It has a tomato base along with roux that makes it a hearty meal. It is also served over hot rice as most good Cajun foods are. That is a staple in every Cajun home. My gramma would keep her rice in a big new garbage can with a tight lid. We ate so much of it that when it was on sale and there was a limit she would send all the grandkids in to each get a bag. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
This is another comfort food from Louisiana.
We had this growing up at least every 2 weeks. My uncles and my dad would go out shrimping and I would sometimes go to pull heads off the shrimp as they were brought into the boat. You can't get any fresher shrimp than that. They didn't catch them to sale, they were for anyone in the family that wanted them and of course no one turned them down. I did not add the time it takes to clean the shrimp to the prep time.
Oh my gosh! My brother told me how to make this years ago and asked if I would make it for him. We had cleaned some fresh quail and his wife was out of town. I did and was instantly hooked on this meal. We had this like every night for a week and at least once a week after due to the fact we raised quail on the farm at the time.
I was making changes to a casserole one day because I had this and didn't have that and turned out a good casserole that everyone liked a lot. I took it to a church potluck and everybody wanted the recipe. It makes a bunch and gets better the next day warmed up. Freezes well too.
These are the best fried shrimp I have ever had. I don't remember where the recipe came from but I have remembered it for years. I don't have it written down anywhere. If you like them crispy, yet tender, this is the way to do them. I'm not sure of the weight of the evaporated milk, just took a guess, but it is the small one.
This is a cold weather comfort food that all members of my family have loved for ages.It is not hard to make and is very good.If you make this, you can say you made a Cajun dish.Everyone in the neighborhood will want to know who is cooking this because the aroma is awesome.We serve it over rice and sometimes have potato salad on the side.
These biscuits are so easy to make and taste really good. They were made by my gramma whenever we would show up on a week-end night to watch tv. When hot out of the oven, she would butter them and fill with one of her home-made jellies or jam. They were a great snack for us kids.
A friend gave me this easy recipe that she got from a friend. It is so easy to prepare and really good over rice with beans on the side. We like pinto beans or goya black beans with it. You could also use a Spanish rice and turn this into a Mexican meal.
My ex-husband's granny would make this when they were not having biscuits. She served some kind of hot bread at every meal.
I found this recipe after she passed away. We did not know she had written it down because she would just grab a bowl and throw it together. It is good and easy.
Twenty years ago while making a huge Thanksgiving dinner for a crowd I decided to go overboard with my regular, ho-hum candied yams. I just kept adding things to them. Everyone loved them and we ran out quick.
A friend gave me this recipe years ago. She got it from a cookbook but, I don't know which one. I use to give it at Christmas because everyone asked for it. It can be as hot or mild as you like. It is good with a bag of nacho chips or on whatever you wish.
