2. Banana Bread

3. Slow smoked chicken and sausage. Man...was that chicken juicy. Brining makes all the difference in the world.

4. Brownies and corn pudding (a traditional southern dish that's savory, not sweet)

5. "Crash" potatoes

6. and my first attempt at drop biscuits. This is where I learned baking powder can loose it's power over time. They didn't rise like they should have, and I hadn't perfected the cooking time, so they are a little blonde.

I just realized all my food is some shade of beige.
sod the colour mac,it all looks bloody tasty to me.that's where the money is & you can see the juicy shine on the chook & the sausage.nice job mate!!

Browning a pot roast in my cherished 100 year old cast iron skillet. 10,000 chickens have been fried in that bad boy. Just look at that wonderful seasoning on it. Man...if that pan could talk...it have some stories to tell.



...then into the crock pot...to slow cook it until fork tender. Will serve with carrots, onions and potatoes....and a salad.

Addie,

I went with the half butter/half shortening combo for the snickerdoodles. I'm currently having to wield my shotgun to keep the family from eating them before they get packaged up.

Oh shoot...guess I'll have to make more. I HATE having too many homemade cookies in the house!! NOT!!! I'm going to make another double recipe of the chocolate/chocolate chip...because they were "make the pope curse" good....insanely good.
