Staff Picks

Oklahoma Brisket

Rating: Unrated
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

Rating: Unrated
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

Rating: Unrated
Grandma Oma always made these, and I still do. They are a welcome change on a relish tray.

Choctaw Catfish

Rating: Unrated
I developed this when the catfish was plentiful in the summer!

Depression Era Corn Chowder

Rating: Unrated
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

Rating: Unrated
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

Rating: Unrated
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

Rating: Unrated
Remember, black-eyed peas on New Year's Day brings good luck for the entire year!

Oklahoma Nut Candy

Rating: Unrated
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.

Fried Okra

Rating: Unrated
A simple Southern classic! Okra is dredged in seasoned cornmeal, then fried until golden.

Leslie's Salty Grilled Potatoes

Rating: Unrated
These fantastic grilled potatoes will have everyone eating the skin! But be careful, no other baked potato will do after this. So be prepared to make it again.

Inspiration and Ideas

Okra Patties

Rating: Unrated
These fried okra patties are made from fresh okra and onion in a cornmeal batter. A delightful southern-style snack.

Easy Barbeque Beef Tenderloin Steak

Rating: Unrated
This is a simple treatment for tender cuts. No long marinating, no complicated basting sauce - just the steak and a little garlic.

Chicken Fried Steak III

Rating: Unrated

One of the more comfortable of comfort foods, breaded steaks are fried, and served with a seasoned cream gravy. Mashed potatoes and greens, or a salad would be the perfect complimentary side dishes.
