This is absolutely fabulous and so easy. Brisket that isn't dried out can be so good. The bar-b-que sauce is also wonderful and can be used for other meat dishes.
Brown Bean Chowder
This bean chowder is similar to chili. It's one of the most popular dishes at Tulsa Public Schools. Those of us growing up in the 60's and 70's remember it fondly as a favorite treat. A real stick-to-your-ribs comfort food. Tradition dictates that it is served with cinnamon rolls. This was given to me by my grandmother who was a dietician/cook for over 40 years.
Honey Crunch Pecan Pie
This is the winner of First Place in the Nut Category, as well as winner of the Best of Show award for the American Pie Council's 2000 National Pie Championship.
Grandma Oma's Pickled Okra
Grandma Oma always made these, and I still do. They are a welcome change on a relish tray.
Depression Era Corn Chowder
This is the recipe my grandmother used when she was growing up during the great depression. 70 years later, it's still a delicious, satisfying form of comfort food. Serve immediately with saltine crackers. Tastes even better after sitting in the refrigerator over night. In my grandmother's day, they would have 'refrigerated' it on the back porch overnight!
Oklahoma Cheese Grits
It's a great day when my mom serves up this Southern specialty! Cooked grits are combined with seasonings, cheese, and eggs, then baked. The eggs are the secret to light fluffy grits that melt in your mouth! You may adjust or eliminate the hot sauce to suit your taste.
Oklahoma Comfort Food: Brats, Cabbage and Green Bean Casserole
This unusual combination of ingredients in a pot came to us through a friend by way of her mother. Our friend's mom takes food to families who have suffered a death in the family. They take all sorts of things but this always goes first. It is tasty. She uses kielbasa but we use brats. We also use Splenda instead of sugar. It freezes and reheats well.
New Year's Day Black-Eyed Peas
Remember, black-eyed peas on New Year's Day brings good luck for the entire year!
Oklahoma Nut Candy
My Mom, sisters and I would not feel like it was Christmas unless we had made this delicious candy. It tastes somewhere between fudge and caramels. It's best to use a wooden spoon to stir this candy with.
A simple Southern classic! Okra is dredged in seasoned cornmeal, then fried until golden.
