A tasty cranberry sauce that beats the heck out of the canned stuff, although you may miss that suction sound those jellied logs make as they leave the can. Cooking time includes 30 minutes cooking, 30 minutes cooling.
After looking at many cheese soup and chowder recipes, I decided to try making my own combination of both. The bechamel sauce makes it a thicker than some soups and chowders, but hey, we like it that way.
This is an enchilada dish I made for my grandparents when they came to visit us several years ago. They still rave about it. I have made it quite a few times since. The sour cream sauce is always a big hit.
These are great as part of a Saturday or Sunday football game buffet. They go great with cold beer. Sometimes I even add ground beef after the bean dip, but before the cheese. And there are other times when we make these as a meal instead of just a snack.
This simple tasty side dish is great for potlucks. So far three people who said they didn't like hominy have asked me for the recipe. Oops. Make that two people. The third person gets it made for her since she is married to me.
This is a recipe for Chicken Fried Steak, one of the staple foods of Texas. Like with fried chicken, folks in each family or restaurant tend to have their own little "secrets" to preparing Chicken Fried Steak, so you can play with the recipe a bit. But if it don't include the cream gravy, it ain't been prepared right and it ain't a "secret" worth keeping.
Fried okra is a staple in Texas and the south, and everyone has their own way to make it. The crust can be flour, cornmeal, or a combination of both; my grandmother used cornmeal, my mother uses mostly seasoned flour, my wife uses both at the same time. They are all good to me. In fact, I can't recall ever meeting a plate or bowl of fried okra that I didn't like. It is easy to make.
A rich, spicy cheese dip that is a must for parties and get-togethers. It also works well as a sauce. You can make it as mild or as spicy as you like, depending upon the type of sausage and/or Rotel you use.
