Low-Fat Soul by Jonell Nash - Back when low-fat was the craze, Jonell Nash de-fatted a lot of her favorite family recipes. It is full of delicious things, and has my go-to recipe for greens.

Also, a bunch of church and school cookbooks with contributed favorite family recipes. I love both the ones from my own geographic area, and from other areas, too. There's always something delicious in these.

YESSSSS!! Church cookbooks are the best...especially in the South! My Granny always participated in a church cookbook and had her recipe for the famous "Hot Pineapple Salad" published several times and people always raved about it.
I've found them to be great for yummy desserts, breads, and old-school items like okra relish and muscadine jelly. YUMMMMMM.

Gadgets... we have a Ninja cooker, love it! I was gifted a beautiful kitchen aid stand mixer for Christmas a couple years ago. Utensils are best if made of bamboo or silicone. Once the house is done it will be like Christmas all over again. I'm certain since we've been living tiny for almost a year now I will do a huge purge of things that really aren't needed.
I just love to cook and play in the kitchen. Some of my favorite memories are centered around creating in the kitchen. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy this thread. Thank you Medusa.

Justkim!!

I love my Kitchenaide stand mixer as well. Mine was a birthday gift years ago and it was pretty funny because the first one got returned because it wasn't big enough. I have a giant bright red professional model and she has certainly gotten her workout over the years.

I did invest in lots of attachments for her and have a pasta roller set that I got on clearance for like 75% off that still needs to be experimented with. Maybe I'll try some spinach pasta and report my results back here!

Default Kitchen Mojo

My kitchen used to be the heartbeat of my house. It was an old craftsman house that the previous owner built for his wife. They had 7 children, which explains the kitchen. i had a HUGE open kitchen with a big ceramic sink with a huge window over it where i could see into my big back yard. That kitchen is why i wanted that house so badly.

It was my happy place. i got a reading from Arwen in that kitchen one time, and she saw my Mamere with me. i've always channeled my grandmother but that let me know for sure.

Its where i would put on my favorite apron, pull my hair up tight... and get in my mode..

Its where i would crank up my Kitchen Witch Playlist and dance around while trying to focus on the task at hand. Ricky Martin can be distracting.

Its where i cranked up my gas stove and made my yearly 20 dozen holiday cookies, (my Mamere's recipe), strawberry jam, Blackberry dumplings, pepper jelly, boiled crawfish, gumbo, jambalaya, etouffe for the masses, fudge and chopped tons of veggies that i grew in the back yard.

i've never had a microwave or used a Kitchen Aid appliance. i have burnt up many mixers and blenders though!

Its where my family would sit around my big table and drink coffee and chuckle about how much my house looked JUST like my grandmothers. Its where we played with Tarot cards and ate Oyster dressing on Christmas eve. Its where when no one wanted to make Oyster dressing we ate Popeyes chicken because thats all that was open on Christmas Eve.

i guess that's what this thread is about, and i totally get it. For now i am enjoying a break but soon, i think i will have my mojo back.

I love gingersnaps! Have you ever tried adding a dash (or more) of cayenne pepper to your gingersnap recipe? It is a celebration of taste sensations that explode in your mouth.

NOOOO!!! But it does sound pretty interesting and like something I would enjoy

I'll be making a vegan pasta sauce tomorrow and having some wheat pasta with it. I like to make enough for several days and besides, I am DYING to try out the new Dutch oven I picked up.

Y'all? If you have a Kroger grocery store in your area they have GORGEOUS 6 qt cast iron enameled Dutch ovens right now for $25! I have seen these go for upwards of $80 so this is a great deal. I got a red one

Y'alllllllllllllllll!

I have been pining away for this book for a while now and came across a dirt-cheap copy of it at Halfprice Books when I was in Atlanta last.

It's...ahem...a *delicious* read!

Eeeekkk!!

Anyone else have new recipe anxiety?

I am making something I've never made before and so excited and also nervous to see how it turns out.
It's not even a complicated recipe but WEEEE!

Spring rolls made with chicken, cilantro, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. Easy as hell, and I hope they taste as good as they look!

I have both OXO’s Pro line swivel and Y peelers and they are fantastic! I also have OXO’s hand grater and mandolines. Their grips are the best and they all are ergonomic. I am currently recouping from carpal tunnel surgery on both hands, and along with my arthritis, food prep can be painful for me. On those painful days, I use Cuisinart’s mini-mate chopper.

There is an electric peeler...Starfrit Rotato Peeler for like $15....

There are a various asundry of the silicone hand & palm peelers....Walmart, Amazon...in same price range.

I have arthur in several fingers of both hands, so holding a hand held peeler hurts my hands.

Good luck in hoping you find something amenable to your needs.....xo...clay

We've been using a meal delivery service for a couple months. We choose a few meals, they send the ingredients and recipe. We LOVE it!!! I enjoy the fact that I don't have to plan anything, shop for anything, or even think really. I whip out the recipe card and the ingredients and make myself follow instructions for 30-45 minutes. There have been healthy options and tasty options, sometimes even in the same meal. I feel like the menus are fully vetted so there is probably less anxiety than if I was choosing something online. How do you choose a recipe....is it something you've eaten then looked up on-line so you can make it yourself? Something you've seen on TV? Something based on ingredients you have in your kitchen? I find recipe-hunting intimidating so having limited choices each week (maybe 15 recipes to choose from) helps me.

We haven't had much success with the pork entrees (tenderloins, chops, etc.). I'm thinking we overcook by cooking too long or having heat too high. We probably need to try a meat thermometer. Anyone had success cooking with pork want to give us tips?

I have friends that get Hello Fresh and the meals have been really good. Sear initially on a higher heat but turn it down to finish the cook when using a stovetop and make sure to let it rest. It'll be juicier if you do. When baking, keep the time short and the temperature up (15 min and 425 degrees or somewhere in that ballpark). The meat thermometer should read 145 degrees. Also, when baking, put it in the pan so the fat side is up so as the fat melts, it will baste the meat.
