Jean! Those cookies are ADORABLE!

Yeah - Sara, I have made my own celery salt, too, but I have a tough time getting it to the right consistency. It's always too powdered. It tastes great, but it's hard to use it the way I do when using store bought. I get that totally.

Nini, no worries on the french fries. I don't think my husband let them cook long enough in the toaster oven is all. lol I have not given up on them yet! I think canning is a great way to preserve them and am so glad you suggested that. Those cookie trays are amazing, wow. What a great gift to the lucky people.

I've been working on the Kitchen Renegade Badge and yesterday I made a oven stew using the freezer ground beef mix with Trelingua seasoning mix. Trelingua mix is in MJF Idea Book. Must say it was "standing at the stove eating out of the pot good". You know what I'm talking about. You take a bite to see if the seasoning is right and you keep on taking bite after bite because it's that good.

Brutal cold here today - 18 low 6 - lite snow. I know it's not so bad compare to up-north temps but for us it's the coldest in decades. But, my kitchen is warm, so I made cornbread mix. Yield 5 pints of 1 1/4 cups each - cornbread making will be easier now - no measuring - it's all done ahead of time in the jar.

Sara,
What recipe do you use for your cornbread mix? Still cold here but warm enough today to melt some of our ice and snow.

2 c all purpose flour
2 c cornmeal
1 c instant milk powder or dry buttermilk powder (I used buttermilk powder)
1/3 c sugar (I omitted it)
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Mix all ingredients and put in either 5 cup container or put 1 1/4 cup of mix in 5 pint jars. Use within 10-12 weeks.

The cornbread recipe I used called for 1 1/4 c of the mix. Turned out good.

Sara you are cold too my goodness. -22 at almost 5:30 am. I am a bit late in getting up, but that is ok. Heading out to milk shortly. I love having mixes made up. I usually have a pancake mix made up in the freezer. Sadly i have not taken the time to make it this year, since I ran out. One of these days I will. I have a mixes cook book, that I can't remember the name right now. So very handy.

Thank you Sara. I have some oxygen absorbers that I will toss in the jars once I make this up. Do recipes usually call for cornbread mix? Is it something like adding eggs and milk like the jiffy mix does?
This is a wonderful thread. So many great ideas.

Denise there's a cornbread recipe in the same book as the mix that uses the mix. Here's the cornbread recipe.

1 egg slightly beaten
1/2 water
2 Tbsp butter, margarine or bacon fat, melted. I used EVOO

Preheat oven 425. Butter a 5" X 3" loaf pan (I used 9" iron skillet w/EVOO). In a small bowl combine egg, water, and butter. Beat with wire whisk to blend. Stir in cornbread mix with a fork to just moistened. Batter will be lumpy. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 min.

I heated the skillet with EVOO on top of stove and poured batter into the hot skillet. Put in oven. I like a crispy crust.

I cooked heirloom red beans in the crock pot. Had with avocado and cornbread. Good eating. I grew up eating red beans (not kidney beans). Kin to pinto beans.

Paris is in northeast TX, 30 miles south of the Red River which borders Texas and OK. The whole state is snowed in and extreme cold. Never seen anything like this storm in all my 78 soon to be 79 years. It snowed in Dallas on March 1, 1942 the day I was born but never since. This year who knows - it just might happen.

Good your son has a generator - they come in handy. Might ought to put that on my wish list for next year.

Well speaking of cornbread, after reading about your recipe Sara, I made up some cornbread for supper. Yum I put together taco stew before work in the crock pot.
both were good on a cold night. I like to cook mine in a cast iron fry pan. Stay warm, stay safe, I know you have plenty to eat on your pantry shelves Sara.

Hey girls!

This is what I made for my hubby on a cold winter's day: Hot chocolate on a stick using creamy warm whole milk! And boy was he happy! Getting a smile out of him or any kind of reaction is a rarity! LOL! He was just like a little kid!







Oh, Happy Day!

Also learned how to make homemade bagels - oh my word, SO good! You don't even need the schmear! Never going back to store bought! EVER!! (Notice DH swiped one before they were even cool enough to enjoy! LOL! He LOVES them!) I cheat a little, using the bread machine to do all the kneading, but I do the rolling, shaping, boiling, topping, baking - AND eating! LOL! Super easy! Super delish! Definitely recommend it!



And homemade flatbread is so simple you don't even need yeast! Just baking soda! I don't make the best shaped flatbread, but oh my, it's so easy I've been making it more often than regular bread! We love it! We use it for sandwiches, pizzas, all sorts of thing. And it literally takes about 10 mins to mix and rest, then a couple of minutes more to cook! So, so good!!!

Busy in the kitchen. Nini your baked goods and hot chocolate look good. Once you have homemade anything you won't want to go back to boughten.

Oh, Michele! Lol! If only you knew... When we were young, the big joke was that the neighborhood always knew when I was cooking because the windows would fly open and there'd be huge billows of smoke signaling dinner was ready. Lol. But yes, you are right. Once you get in the groove, almost anything homemade is better! For example, I tried my hand at shawarma the other day. (Face down, shaking my head with closed eyes.) Oh my. Not sure what I did, but windows did fly open.. Not due to smoke but due to the smell! Lol. Definitely need a little practice with that one. In all honesty, tho, i think something was wrong with the meat. <<When he was younger, my hubby would've looked you square in the eye at this claim of mine, grinned ear-to-ear, gotten a twinkle in his eye, winked at you, nodded his head up into the air and said, "Yeah, THAT'S it! It was the MEAT!" LOL. SO thankful for his great sense of humor, and that he was never a picky eater! Lol. We sure ate a lot of pizza back then... ;) >> Oh well, you've got to start somewhere, right??? ;)

Hugs,

Nini
