Delectable Sauteed Parsnips

My parents raised parsnips in their gardens. They were generally much larger than those you can purchase in your local grocery store. It used to take only one or two for a nice sized dish of sauteed/fried parsnips. We always preferred them crisp with darker brown edges. They go great with steak or beef roast.

Cinnamon Candy Apples: A Yummy Treat

Cinnamon candy apples  are nice to serve at Christmas because of their bright red appearance.   I  also love making them with really fresh apples in the fall. They are nice for gatherings because they can be eaten hot or cold.

Wild Mayhaw Jelly

On my last trip to the orchard, I picked up a small jar of a jelly I had never heard of before, Wild Mayhaw. It is a pretty red jelly. After some research, I found Wild Mayhaw to be a deep southern item. It is related to or a type of Hawthorne (hence the name). […]

“Hunky Mess” aka. Skillet Beef and Macaroni

We always called it “Hunky Mess” because growing up I was told it was Hungarian Goulash.  It is not the traditional potato and beef version of goulash – I doubt that it is goulash of any kind.  Although, it does call for a substantial amount of Hungarian Paprika.  Thus, we called it “Hunky Mess.”   […]

Aunt Mary’s Apple Cake

First, I never had an Aunt Mary.  Second, this recipe was from my aunt by marriage. Mary was her aunt. We always called it Aunt Mary’s Apple Cake anyway. This cake is delicious and simple to make, but does require some upper body work.  It is a VERY thick batter ( more like a dough).  […]

Waldorf(ish) Salad

Super easy.  Very tasty.  My mom often made this salad.  A true Waldorf salad contains walnuts.  I use pecans, thus I call it a Waldorf-ish Salad. I also don’t measure anything in this salad.  I think you should add the ingredients to taste.

Textured Applesauce

I love the fall. There is cooler weather, less humidity, fall activities, and apples are in season. I love going to the orchard and buying fresh apples. They are good tasting and good for you. Early in the season or late, applesauce is always a good option. It is also one of my daughter’s favorites. […]

Good Dog: A Very Appropriate Name

The third installment of Hot Dog Stand Week at A Simple Home Cook moves from West Virginia to Tennessee. A Good Dog is located in the North Shore of Chattanooga, Tennessee near Coolidge Park. Unlike the other hot dog stands I featured, this is more of a restaurant than a hot dog stand. It is […]
