A wonderful New Orleans-style soup that is a best seller at my family-owned restaurant. Serve with crackers. I like to season my shrimp with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, 1 tablespoon of Season All(R), and 2 teaspoons of hot sauce (optional).
My all-time favorite recipe, which my Dad makes every year on New Years Day for the college Bowl games. I prefer the ham hocks, but you can substitute a ham bone for them. To slice the sausage easier, put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes first. The longer you cook it the creamier the beans get; I love to let it simmer all day, the smell is wonderful. Serve with hot rice.
Black-eyed peas bring a Southern flair to a Latin favorite.
This is a super simple peach cobbler recipe I learned in the fire house. It has 4 ingredients (including the pan) and is so easy, even a firefighter can do it!!!
Eat just like the cowboys on the old range. Bust out a cast-iron skillet and make yourself this spicy cornbread. Then listen for the howl of the wolf and the lowing of the cattle.
Pulled pork in the slow cooker with an easy barbecue sauce.
Craving fall-off-the-bone pork? If you also love spice, this is the easy slow cooker recipe for you, friend.
Long a comfort food for hungry cowboys throughout the West, Rocky Mountain Oysters (a.k.a. "cowboy caviar," or "Montana tendergroins") were ushered into the modern world when a northern Colorado saloon owner began deep-frying them for his customers. Try it yourself, if you dare.
Boston is famous for their Baked Beans and though they are good they hardly stand up to my hug-worthy Bama Baked Beans. These beans will make a ridiculous side dish for your next BBQ or pool party but they are hearty (and meaty) enough to stand alone as an entree. They feature crispy bacon lardons, ground beef and strips of bacon as garnish. You know if bacon is used as a garnish it’s gotta be good.
So easy, so little prep, and so, so delicious. You can literally make this in your sleep! (Well, almost literally.) The perfect recipe for an all-day sports-watching gathering, like March Madness.
My dad always said the right tool makes the job go easier. In this case we will make use of an apple corer and a red brick to make the perfect popper. Please don't waste your money on one of those expensive popper holders!
No self respecting Man should be without a proper cheese dip. And...no I ain't talking about that "slime" that you buy at "Wally World". In less than 30 minutes you can be feasting on the real deal. Now where did I put those chips...
Awesome dip! If you like collard greens, you will love this dip. Serve with toast, pita bread, or Tostitos(R) tortilla chips.
This is a summertime favorite. Traditionally a southern dish, this is a good recipe for picnics or pot luck lunches. This particular recipe is easy to make and takes little time to prepare.
Slow cooker recipe. Great comfort food. Beans, meat and plenty of natural spice. Serves as a main or side dish. Great for family gathering.
Do yourself a flavor and throw out that store-bought stuff. This is the real deal, powered by lime juice, fresh cilantro, and habanero pepper. Respect the habanero--it can and will hurt you! I dump this stuff on nachos, smear it on pizza, fold it in my omlette, and put it in my chili. Legends are made when you add additional habanero peppers!
These super crispy wings are super delicious! You can deep fry them or even cook 'em in the skillet--they just take 10 minutes!
The chicken leg is often the redheaded step child of the bird. I say no more! This recipe elevates the leg to culinary heights normally reserved for the now legendary wing. It's gonna take some time in the brine so plan ahead...it's worth it! Gentlemen, start your grills...... it's time for legs over buffalo!
I love chicken. But, when it comes to the boneless skinless breast, all I can think of is a tasteless piece of shoe leather! This is a no fail recipe that delivers juicy chicken breasts every time. I take mine topped with bacon and cheese when the wife's not around. Pardon the sloppy grills marks...I was hungry!
