Yorkshire Pudding

Yorkshire Pudding is the classic accompaniment to Prime Rib, as you probably know, especially in England. But you might never have eaten it, and might be surprised to learn that it is not pudding as we Yanks think of pudding. Over here, we call things like this...

Old South Cornbread

Here's an authentic Old South Cornbread recipe given to me by my sister-in-law Martha. She probably got it from her mom, Sara. We all agreed that this was the most flavorful, crusty, and delightful cornbread recipes we've tried in a long time. The cornbread you are...

Nawlins Hush Puppies

Now I don't know for sure that this is the way they fix hush puppies in New Orleans, but I modified a Cajun recipe according to instructions from someone who lived down there. Well, I served them the other night, and they were a huge hit. So whatever else we call...

Grilled French Bread

Cornbread

This cornbread is excellent with soup, chili, and stews. It's quick and easy to make, and is basically fool-proof. The recipe here is very similar to the one on the Albers Cornmeal box, modified only slightly. As noted below, you can also add other items to the recipe...

Beignets

Beignets (pronounced ben Yay) are a classic New Orleans treat. Think of them as a Creole doughnut. A few with your morning coffee starts the day off right. I often make a few from a ball of dough from the fridge for a Sunday morning special with whatever else is for...

Navajo Fry Bread and Tacos

I first had Navajo Fry Bread, often called Indian Fry Bread, along with steak, pinto beans, and salad at a dinner at the Kowboy Kountry Klub in Flagstaff, Arizona back when I was a kid. We just tore pieces off the bread and ate it like rolls. It was very tasty, and...
