Sausage Egg Scramble




Have you ever made this before?  Probably but if not how easy and delicious it can be with a really good bulk sausage and farm fresh eggs.  You must use good ingredients in order to make any dish delicious!
Do you like breakfast at all times of the day?  We are known to have breakfast for supper as we call it here in the south what most call Dinner.  Of course this is very delicious for breakfast also.
Simple with few ingredients that is what I like and try to share on this site.  This recipe is one of the simplest in the Quick and Easy Section.

Flour Dough Hoecake



I found this Old Fashioned Recipe in the draft menu of my website and thought it was time to share it with you.
This is something I haven't thought about in years, although my mama made it quite often.  She would especially do it with leftover biscuit dough.  I think she had a fondness for it from her childhood because her mother and grandmother had made them as well.  We were so spoiled with her pan baked biscuits that I feel she didn't have her hoecakes as often as she would have liked.
Today I share the making of a biscuit dough hoecake.  join me won't you....

Cooking Black-Eyed Peas


Do you like dried beans and peas?  Here in the south we were definitely raised eating them.  Those along with  fresh greens such as collards, mustard, turnips etc. 
I remember watching my grandma cooking them on her wood stove.  It was so hot and I can hear the wood burning and crackling now.  That stove cooked some of the best food I'd ever put into my mouth.
When we were children we were made to eat lots of vegetables and things that were good for us.  I remember fruit wasn't as abundant then as it is now, so it was quite the delicacy.  We would all get so excited over there at Christmas time.  Granddaddy would go to the local grocery and order box after box of fruit along with nuts and a little candy to give to all the family at that joyous time.
Excuse me I went down memory lane, food can do that you know remind you of good times with special people.  Speaking of that I miss my mama so much and she was such a good cook.  It was second nature to her fixing a meal at a moment's notice.  I spent most of my time as a child standing and watching her work her magic in the kitchen.  I started this post when mama was still living a few years ago and found it the other day in the draft menu.  So "Dot" here's to you!  Cooking Black-Eyed Peas.

Chicken Breasts in Slow Cooker for Use in Various Recipes



Today is just a simple, easy way to cook chicken breast in a slow cooker.  You can of course use the thighs and legs if you wish.  I just happen to use the breasts in my recipes.  This can be used in many recipes.  You of course can use fresh garlic, onion, and chili peppers, but today this is for quick and simple, plus I'm trying to use up those huge containers of minced onions and granulated garlic in my pantry.

Old Fashioned Stewed Potatoes


.
Here in the South we really enjoy quite a few recipes and some are handed down through many generations.  This is one such recipe my great grandmother, grandmother and mother all made.  I used to make them more but revisited it today.  
It is so very cold here in South Carolina today.  We have ice and snow storms all around us.  I needed something warm and these sounded like the thing to make.
I don't want you to be confused this is not potato soup.  It is cubed potatoes stewed sometimes with onions and sometimes not.  A white sauce is made and they are simply seasoned with salt, pepper and an oil of some type.  You may use bacon, fat back, butter, olive oil or you may use some of the oil used in cooking some type of meat.  We usually have these potatoes as a side dish. They are especially good with fried chicken, pork chops, country fried steak or any type meat you would choose to make.  That is what I was speaking of when I said oil from the pan of a meat fried.  You can decide which type oil to use.

One Crust Chicken Pot Pie




Today I share a one crust chicken pot pie recipe with you.  Yes, I know it seems like cheating to make one without the bottom crust but it will be better for us.  I did make it with a Sam's Club Rotisserie Chicken.  I'm trying to cut some calories and make a lighter version.  One crust no potatoes lots of vegetables and vegetable broth or water to replace some of the broth.  You can just make a vegetable pot pie without meat or chicken broth and use no butter only olive oil for an even lighter pie.  Now doesn't that sound nice and easy?
