I grew up at the elbow of whoever was cooking whatever was to eat in my house that day. I learned from my mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa. We had 7 acres of land and raised our own cows and pigs for slaughter for awhile. We had chickens for fresh eggs and a large garden for several years. I love to try new things and have perfected the classics. I can make gravy out of anything. Give me some flour and some liquid and I can do it. I find that I work best without to much of a plan. I will look to see what I have in the pantry and invent something for dinner. My husband tells me it amazes him the delicious things I can come up with out of thin air. My mother taught me later in life how to preserve food (canning). My grandmother always did it, but would shoo me out of the kitchen when it came to this process. Maybe she was afraid I would get hurt around all those boiling pots. When I got older, I asked my mom to teach me how to make pickled asparagus. Soooo good. Then we moved to jelly. I will pick fruit off any tree now, as long as it's free. A group of friends and I call ourselves "Redneck Smuckers Jelly". Last year we made over 30 cases of various jellies. The meal I most love to eat is fried chicken and mashed potatoes with cream gravy and corn. CARB CITY! My favorite meal to cook is pork steak, mashed potatoes, cream gravy, fresh green beans with bacon and onions. This is my mom's favorite meal and I love to make her happy. My husband's favorite meal is anything I make for dinner, gotta love that man.

Corn Dogs

Corn Dogs

Simple and tasty recipe. I used bamboo appetizer forks. I cut the dogs in half. Trick is to dunk straight in and then straight up out of the batter. Nice crispy coating. Had a ton of batter left over, added some minced onion and made hush puppies. 8/11/2013

I have used whatever I have in the fridge! Peperjack with a can of jalpenos, sharp cheddar and ham, pamesan with bacon. Use your imagination, but if you are a cook by numbers kind of person, try sharp cheddar. — wewerebornready 4/3/2013

I loved the crunchy onion cheese combo on top of the chops. The potato mixture was good, but will be kicked up a notch the next time I make this dish. — webtexan 2/22/2011

Marie Callender's Hush Puppies

Made this recipe last night and it was exactly what I needed to get my feet wet. I have never made hush puppies and was looking for something easy. Good flavor but I forgot Marie's is a sweet mix, just what I am looking for in a cornbread, but not a hush puppy. Don't get me wrong, they were GOOD, and easy, almost bomb proof! My dinner guests raved about them and wanted the recipe. — BillDSmith 1/31/2011
