NASHVILLE HOT FISH FINGERS

I’ve been itching to make a ‘Nashville Hot’ recipe since I first learned it was even a thing. I even considered a weekend road trip to Nashville to check it out first-hand at the source, Hattie B’s Hot Chicken restaurant in Nashville, TN. Nashville Hot Chicken is simply fried chicken that’s basted with a hot “sauce” then served with pickles and bread....  >>READ MORE HERE>>

SLOW COOKER HAWAIIAN HAM

Most of y’all know I’m a baseball mom and that a HUGE chunk of my life is spent at the ball field. Brutus is on a new team this spring and I am soooooo happy to report that I absolutely love the kids and parents on the team. A few weeks ago we were all setting out food for lunch at a tournament and the crew got to talking about these amazing crock pot Hawaiian ham sandwiches one of their parents had made for the team once upon a time.....  >>READ MORE HERE>>

PINEAPPLE CASSEROLE

Man, DANG, I wish I’d gotten this recipe out to y’all before Easter! I can’t believe I’ve never shared it with you before because it is a huge favorite with my entire family. When we have ham, we MUST have Pineapple Casserole with it. We MUST. It’s the RULE. Period. Even my meat-and-potatoes husband has to have it. There’s just something about the sweet pineapple and cheddar cheese that just goes with ham....  >>READ MORE HERE>>

SUPER EASY SCALLOPED POTATOES

Y’all know what a rice lover I am. I rarely cook potatoes because, well, I’d rather have rice. Husband has come to love it too… though, that might be because he hasn’t had a choice. Either learn to love rice or you’ll go hungry at my house 😁. Every now and again, he’ll ask for potatoes. And since he rarely asks for anything special, I try to oblige him when he does....  >>READ MORE HERE>>

PECAN CORNBREAD COBBLER

The last time I was in Texas I was introduced to something I’d never heard of or tried before: pecan cobbler. It was obviously a local favorite and one bite made it a favorite for me too!I’ve searched a bit online over the years for a similar recipe but have never been able to find anything like the pecan cobbler I had tried on my trip...  >>READ MORE HERE>>

SLOW COOKER RANCH ROASTED POTATOES

So, I made this melt-your-face-off-good slow cooker pork roast the other day and talked about using simple spices we have on-hand instead of all the packets of soup and dressing mix and instant gravy. And then I turned around and thought of an easy potato recipe using dun dun DUNNN…. ranch dressing mix....  >>READ MORE HERE>>

BUTTER-BRAISED SLOW COOKER PORK ROAST

The “Mississippi-style” chuck roasts are all the rage right now. Ya know, the ones where you dump a packet of this and a package of that over a roast, slap a stick of butter on it, then arrange pepperoncini peppers around the top? And they’re delicious! But I got to thinking two things… one, let’s add that butter to.... >>READ MORE HERE>>

SOUTHERN-STYLE MACARONI & CHEESE

Nanny’s Macaroni & Cheese was, hands-down, my absolute favorite of all the things she cooked. Though her 12-layer banana cake, chicken n’ dumplings and greasy rice all hold special places in my heart, there was nothing – and I mean NOTHING – that was more delicious or more requested than her macaroni and cheese... >>READ MORE HERE>>

SALISBURY STEAK & POTATO SKILLET

Salisbury Steak only ever meant two things to me: 1) that processed lump of meat swimming in glumpy gravy in the school cafeteria and 2) something that came in a TV dinner. It was not something I grew up eating or cooking. Or maybe it was. I think for folks around here, ‘Salisbury Steak’ is a very close cousin to what we would simply call ‘Hamburger Steaks & Gravy’. One thing I have learned with this blog is that... >>READ MORE HERE>>

SHRIMP & SAUSAGE 15-BEAN GUMBO

What the what is bean gumbo?? I know that’s what you’re asking. And maybe even shouting. And maybe you asked it and then spit on the floor like my nanny would have done if someone had implied you could make chicken and dumplin’s with tofu. But it’s a thing! It really is! I had a Red Bean Gumbo in a little dive in Shreveport and it really left an impression on me so I decided to try my own version of it...  >>READ MORE HERE>>
