Cake Doughnuts

There's nothing better than homemade doughnuts! I like cake donuts better than yeast donuts. This is how I make my favorite doughnuts for my family.

Real simple ingredients you already have in your kitchen. You can make the dough the night before and have them ready to go in the morning.

I douse them in cinnamon sugar or icing sugar or sometime plain...Happy Eating Sandra

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cut butter milk

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 quarts oil for deep frying

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup white sugar

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Heat oil in a deep heavy skillet or deep-fryer to 370 degrees F (185 degrees C). On a floured board, roll chilled dough out to 1/2 inch thickness. Use a 3 inch round cutter to cut out doughnuts. Use a smaller cutter to cut holes from center. If you do not have a small cutter, use the mouth of a bottle.

Fry doughnuts in hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Remove from oil to drain on paper plates. Combine the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar in a large resealable bag. Place a few warm donuts into the bag at a time, seal and shake to coat.

Sweet And Sour Chicken

Sweet and sour chicken is delicious. Easy sweet and sour chicken recipe that calls for chicken, sweet and sour sauce that is better than takeout.

I did not add pineapple but you can to the sauce...(The Reason I Did Not Add Them I Did Have Them Available).

The secret is in the chicken marinade, specifically using eggs and cornstarch and not flour, which cornstarch creates a super-light coating all around the chicken makiing it not dory but soft and tender.

1/2 cup cornstarch [not flour]

2 well beaten eggs

1/2 cup Peanut oil to fry

For the sauce:

1 tablespoon oil

1/2 tablespoon minced garlic

1 tablespoon minced onion

1/2 each diced green and red bell pepper

1/4 cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoon soy sauce

1/8 teaspoon sesame oil

1/2 cup ketchup

1/2 cup sugar

Pineapple Chucks

Chopped scallions
Sesame seeds

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Coat them with cornstarch, dip in beaten egg and fry until golden, crispy and cooked done through. place aside on paper towel.

In a large pan, heat oil and fry garlic and onion until fragrant.

Beef Ribs Bar B Que

Oven Roasting it seem requires more time, oven roasting is the simplest cooking method because it requires little attention.

These Beef Ribs Turn Out Delicious And Tender In The Oven...All you Had do is season them with your favorite seasoning and place them in your roasting pan with a top.

If you want that smoke taste in the oven just add ..Liquid Hickory Smoke...Did You Know That...Liquid Hickory  Smoke ...

Liquid smoke really is made from smoke. Chips or sawdust from hardwoods such as hickory or mesquite are burned at high temperatures, and particles of the smoke are collected in condensers. The resulting liquid is concentrated down for a stronger flavor...Happy Eating...Sandra

Buttermilk Cornbread

This is a simple, classic buttermilk cornbread recipe baked in a preheated cast iron skillet or a cake pan. There's no sugar in a Southern-style cornbread, but a small amount of sugar or a little honey can be added if you like.

This cornbread recipe is more on the moist and tender side not dry or crumbly that many traditional recipes  produce. This is a very easy cornbread recipe that always gets happy reviews.

I usually use melted butter in my cornbread, but melted shortening or cooking oil...

Buttermilk Corn bread is great, especially to a vegetarian diet, where its full flavor and slightly crunchy texture are welcome at any meal.

It's funny, I was raise in Texas and my mother never cook grits. When I married, my husband folks who lived in New Orleans ate them just with butter.So when I started cooking them I had to add a little some some to them "some taste".

Grits has been a part of the life of every Southern of whatever race, background, gender, and income; and whereas, grits could very well play a vital role in the future of not only in the south , but also the world,  
Grits are usually either yellow or white, depending on the color of corn. The most commonly version found in supermarkets is "quick" grits in which the germ and hull have been removed, so grits can cook fast and quick.if not if will take 30 minute to cook.

Chessy Beefy Mexican/Spanish Grits Casserole

1 1/2  lb ground meat

1 teaspoon cumin

1 1/2 chilli powder

1 small onion, chopped

1 small red and green bell pepper, chopped

My Cheese Grits Recipes
