Welcome to my new blog: Angel's Kitchen!
This is a new experience for me, and I'm looking forward to sharing recipes with you and seeing the readers' favorite recipes. Just log on at www.myeaglenews.com/kitchen and ask questions about cooking and baking problems, and get expertise from other readers.
I've always thought it would be nice to own a Grant County cookbook. What a great way to do it!
I love trying new recipes from cookbooks, the internet, family and friends.
One year I threw an Egyptian party because my middle-schooler was learning the subject in his history class. We learned about the country with a slide show and enjoyed many different and tasty foods from the region: Basbousa Cake, Spinach and Cheese Pides and Raspberry-Mint Cairo Punch.
The internet was useful in finding all those recipes.
While exotic meals are fun, I'd like to start with good ol' stick-to-your-ribs home cooking - Meat 'n' Potatoes.
Cody Wilson of John Day, widely known for his wonderful smoked meat recipes, helped me out with some contributions - thanks Cody! Family members of mine were also a great resource, and I've thrown in a couple of recipes I've used and enjoyed.
Please visit again in the coming days - I'm asking for your favorite "Thanksgiving trimmings" recipes, be it a savory turkey dressing, jazzed up mashed potatoes and gravy, your mom's best roll recipe, a veggie dish, or your good-to-the-last crumb pie and dessert recipes - does your aunt Carol make a mean yam dish with those marshmallows on top?
I look forward to facilitating great eating in Grant County!
Bring on the recipes!
