Irresistible Raspberry Buttermilk Dumplings

Rating: Unrated

Wonderful twist on this old fashioned favorite, used for dessert or even breakfast! These buttermilk dumplings are light, fluffy, and full of flavor. The very slight tang of the buttermilk compliments the sweetness of the syrup like raspberry dumpling sauce. We love it warm with vanilla ice cream, or they're even great cold!

I love the tangy tenderization that the buttermilk provides. After the buttermilk soak, dredge the chicken pieces in seasoned flour, and fry them in hot oil until crisp and cooked.

This deceptively simple recipe can come out a million different ways with some very minor variations on the ingredients and amounts. This one's my favorite - flaky, but not dry; chewy, but not tough; crisp in just the right spots.

Chef John's Creme Fraiche

Making creme fraiche is very easy and, once you taste the magic of homemade sour cream, you'll have a hard time not repeating this esoteric exercise. Sure it takes a couple days, but the effort is minimal and the payoff is marvelous.

Chef John's Nashville Hot Chicken

Rating: Unrated
48
If you've never had Nashville Hot Chicken, we're talking about an ultra-crispy fried chicken doused with a cayenne-infused glaze, and by 'glaze' I mean melted butter and lard. For the record, I've never been to Nashville, so I can't tell you how authentic this is, but it works for me, and is fairly easy to pull off.

Chef John's Smothered Pork Chops

Rating: Unrated

You know that when a recipe has 'smothered' in the name, it's going to be easy. It's a beautiful combination of dark, rich onion gravy covering pan-fried pork chops. Serve over hot cooked rice.

Instant Pot® Chicken and Dumplings

Rating: Unrated
42
I wanted the richness of long-simmered chicken stew, but without the fuss of using a whole chicken. This compromise, using boneless skinless chicken thighs with bone-in chicken breast, gave me the richness of flavor and ease of preparation I was looking for! It's basically chicken pot pie made in a pressure cooker rather than an oven.

Greg's Southern Biscuits

Light and fluffy and the closest thing I've found to my grandmother's biscuits. Delicious for jams, butter, honey, corn syrup, or just great bread for any meal. My grandmother used to make them pretty much every day.
