  1. I have to say you have the "best" recipes I have seen in a while--- overall. Most of the time you can find websites that have "ok" recipes or some really good but not overall GOOD-- but i havent seen one on here yet that doesnt look great! This website/ recipes are so impressing-- congratulations you have a great website with lots of good stuff-- just in case lots of people havent already told you that! Please put me on the list for new recipes...
    thanks,

  5. Not everyone loves tea that is so sweet. I've been told I make the best iced tea they have ever tasted; here is the recipe for Louise's iced tea, 2 1/2 quarts of water, 6 regular tea bags and 1/4 cup sugar or 6 packets of Splenda for no/low calorie Iced Tea. I grew up extremely poor and instead of milk to drink at meals we had tea. And BTW, my teeth were really hard.

    1. Everybody should make tea to their own sweetness that's for sure! I've found that there's a wide range of levels of sweetness as some folks like it light like you do, and others have a very strong sweet tooth and want it much sweeter.

  6. Greetings from North East Arkansas. I found your site by a Google search for a Hamburger Steak recipe. Man, did I hit the jackpot. Your site has many of the "Mom used to make" recipes that are so hard to find. The Hamburger Steak turned out well and I'll be trying more of your recipes. Thank you for taking the time to share the simple pleasures of good Southern home cooking.

  9. I made the Crescent Cocoon pecan sandies, they came out great but I may have made them too big. Then I decided for the next batch to press them in a tiny cupcake thing. After they baked til done I sprinkled Heath mix on the top and slipped them in the oven a couple more minutes. They're pretty festive.
    Thank you for the recipe, it's always been a favorite.

  11. i have tried doing the fried jalapeno poppers and i cant seem to make the coating stick when i do the second washing in the milk the flower comes off the pepper and the same whe i try the bread crumbs doesnt seem to want to stick ...any suggestions what i may be doing wrong?

    1. Hi! My first question is do you mean you're having trouble with "my" popper recipe or just in general?

      Store-bought jalapenos usually have a waxy type of coating on them to keep them fresh and pretty. This will affect the ability of the coating to stick if you try to bread them raw. In my recipe, I boil the jalapenos first which both removes the coating and softens them so you don't have to fry them so long. I also use buttermilk, which is much thicker and gives the crumb something to cling to. Regular milk and especially a thinner lower fat milk won't work. If you don't have buttermilk, you'd be better off trying an egg wash and double coating with crumb. If you don't want to boil the peppers first, you can scrub them with a vegetable brush, but the fried pepper won't be as tender either.

      So you 1) parboil the peppers, 2) stuff them 3) dip in buttermilk 4) dip in flour 5) dip in buttermilk again and 6) dip in breadcrumbs then 7) fry!

      Hope that helps!

  13. I was browsing through your recipes and discovered the link for "casseroles" is broken. I thought you might want to know so it can be fixed.
    Thank you!
