Hey there, y'all!
My favorite recipes came direct from my
momma and grandmommas. I just love goin' through all the
recipe cards they passed on to me and readin' their
handwritten notes; it makes me remember our good times in
the kitchen, gathered round the table. Sometimes, though, I
need a little remindin' when it comes to writin' down my own
recipes and recollections, so I've put together this darlin'
little journal to get me (and you) started recordin'. I know
I never forget a meal, but I also know that Jamie and Bobby
aren't always listenin' to what I'm tellin' 'em.
you and the boys, I've included some tried-and-true recipes
and some of my hard-learned tricks for gettin' out of
culinary scrapes -- and Lord, honey, have there been a few.
Whether it is a real disaster -- the boss and his wife are
comin' over and the kitchen is full of smoke (no shame in
servin' some takeout) -- or just an everyday bump in the
road -- your husband didn't hear the buzzer, and the cake
got a little dry in the oven (let some sugar water soak into
those layers, and no one will know the difference) -- I've
got your answer. Just get cookin' and let loose: nothin'
makes memories like the smell of home-cooked meals. Jot down
your ingredients and your musings, cut out a recipe card or
two to share with friends, keep track of who came to dinner,
who liked what, and who laughed the loudest; remember the
good times and learn from the bad. Like I always say,
there's not much in life you can't learn in the
