What’s Cooking…


I love Saturday mornings…especially when I have no specific plans…at least not early…and…I can snuggle into the covers…until my heart wants to get up…not my sense of responsibility…
Today…was one of those mornings…ahhh…
So…I’m sitting here thinking…what will I write about…when I notice a package I haven’t opened…a new cookbook that arrived yesterday…Back to the Table with My Country Kitchen…by Betty Lynch…
I know…I need another cookbook like I need another hole in my head…but as you may recall…I got one of those last year as well…so…I deserve the cookbook…
And…besides…this one is different…the first recipe I saw when I opened it was…Chocolate Gravy…do you know…in all my 57 southern drawling years…I’ve never had Chocolate Gravy…yes…I’m deprived…I’ll be remedying that in just a bit…so…feel free to send biscuits…if you feel so led…
Anyway…it only went uphill…from Chocolate Gravy…I’m loving all the recipes…there seems to be something for everybody…from…fresh is best…to…I’ve got a soccer team to feed in twenty minutes—help…from…meat and potato appetites…to…hold the meat—hold the potatoes—what’s left
Then…there’s the story behind the recipes…when author Betty is teaching editor Kim how to cook in order to test the recipes…I really liked that part…like when Kim asks…how do you fold raw eggs…hopefully better than I fold bottom sheets…just saying…
Well…I’m getting really hungry…so…I’m off to try Chocolate Gravy…
