Sounds like my former mother in law--in OHIO. That woman was a terror. Still is, from what I understand, and she's in her nineties. She'd spend so much time baking for the holidays and put treats out for everyone to enjoy--everyone except her family. They were for company, for show. I didn't dare even taste something.

What a shame, Brenda. Two of my fondest memories are of helping my mother make cookies and my gram with cinnamon rolls. That's where I learned that the cook has to eat the mistakes! Needless to say I've been roly-poly most of my life. I wish I had trouble gaining weight!

Cinnamon rolls, umm, even sounds wonderful.

Ever eat raw cookie dough? Licked the spoon after the icing was spread?
Got to lick the dasher after that hand-cranked ice cream was ready?

God, I LOVED to help my mom and grandma in the kitchen!

Bet you're a good cook, Brew. While doing restaurant reviews, I discovered that men are great chefs.

I do tolerable well, Brenda. There are certain things I cook well that
my family asks for; chili, spaghetti and stews, to name a few.

And yes, my chili has beans - actually three different ones - red
beans, white beans and chili beans. Then two meats - beef and pork (add
one squirrel if you got one). If I'm making it for a bunch of good ol'
boys it's so hot that it could cook itself. Leftovers, if any, can be
used as paint remover.

For the uninitiated, I make a milder version by reducing the hot spices
and doubling up on the cumin. It can be spiced up per bowl if desired.

Then to accompany it,there's this Mexican cornbread that my grandmother
taught me how to makeā€”just add whole kernel corn and some fresh, finely
chopped jalopeno peppers to your regular cornbread recipe.

But that's not all. It simply HAS to baked in a cast iron skillet. If
you don't have one of those, all I can suggest is to just substitute
soda crackers. If you do, please for God's sake don't crumble the
crackers into the chili. That's disgusting! The cracker may be dipped
briefly into the chili as a scoop - just not so long as to become
soggy - also disgusting.

My favorite though is the barbie, the grill (which can also be a
smoker), which, by the way, just today produced a favorite of both
family and the neighbors... (The date on the photo is incorrect. I SWEAR it was today...)

The Olive Tapinade-stuffed Pork Loin

Notice the beer in one hand and a brush in the other... and the
roastineers in the husks... . The foiled-wrapped item is two huge
Vidalia onions, sliced with garlic butter between the slices

Love the bbq photo, Brew. And I agree about the chili. Has to have beans or it's not real chili, I don't care those Tex-i-cans say.

We agree on the cornbread. Has to bake in an iron skillet, only I pour a bit of bacon grease into the skillet, stick it in the oven to let it heat, then pour the cornbread batter into the skillet. Forms a nice, crunchy crust.

Have you ever fried the cornbread? I just leave out the baking powder, then fry it like small pancakes. Comes out crispy, then slather it with butter.

No wonder I'll never be skinny.

A few miles from where I live is Johnnycake Lock on the old Ohio & Erie Canal. Got its name when a boat was stranded for several days and that's all they had to eat.
The lock just south of it is Pancake Lock for the same reason.
In December 1997 my story The Phantom of Johnnycake Lock was the cover story in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. It does not, however, include a recipe for Johnnycake.

Brew, raw cookie dough? When I was still in grade school the cooking fell to me. One time I decided to make sugar cookies, a double batch. I was home alone, and by the time everyone returned from where ever they were, there were no baked goods. I got started on tasting and just didn't stop until it was all gone. I don't think I have to tell you that I had one heck of a tummy ache that night! never made sugar cookies again!

Gosh, Brew....

You made me want to fire up the grill! Think I will, this weekend.

Sounds like you like hot spices as much as I do.
If it doesn't grow hair on your chest and rip it off, it's not hot enough!

I made some salsa yesterday that you would have approved of. It made me cry. So good! cherry (I know this smiley isn't exactly right, but it's the closest to a cherry bomb)
