Garlic Italian Peperoncini Pork

This is our absolute favorite way to cook pork.  I’ve cooked this in the crock pot, and it is great that way, but Love it cooked in the oven, even more.   Pork butt and country ribs are fantastic cooked this way!   We buy pork on sale, or a bigger piece, and have it cut so we can eat now and save for later.  This is perfect for pulled pork or as a meat for your meal.

Rosemary Garlic Butter Roast Chicken

Roast chicken was always a Sunday lunch type of meal.  Coming home from church with Mama and Daddy and sitting down a down home meal of comfort.  It's not just for Sunday's any more.  We have this at least once a week.....In our home, comfort food can be found every day of the week. Enjoy!

Parsley Lemon Butter Chicken

I made this the other night and my boys ate it all.  The next night, they asked for it again. ~smile~   Obviously, the amount of butter/margarine can be reduced.  I made this recipe the first time the day I started to make something with german chocolate and found the box opened and could not use it.  Since I already had the margarine melted ...I  used it for the chicken.  YUM!

This is what was left after supper! 

Parsley Lemon Butter Chicken 

1/2 cup margarine or butter
4 to 5 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1 T garlic, 3-5 cloves, minced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste after cooking

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Rinse chicken and remove any giblets.  For some reason, I don’t ever get any in my chickens any more.  I love chicken liver.  Cut down the back and place breast side down in pan.  Heat all ingredients in a small pot until margarine is melted.   Spoon a little of the sauce on chicken, to cover.   Flip the chicken over and spoon the rest over the chicken.  Cook in preheated oven for 45 minutes, checking after 25-30 and tenting with foil so the parsley does not burn.  After 45 minutes, turn oven to 350 degrees and cook another 45 minutes or until chicken is 165 degrees, the leg joint breaks free easily, and juices run clear.  Can serve sauce over chicken pieces or for dipping.  I bet it would even be great to make rice.  ~smile~ Enjoy!

Roast Turkey and Being Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving!!!  I made this turkey last Wednesday.  Little did I know it would not be eaten, or even tasted.  My precious 5 year old son, the youngest twin, was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia after being sick with the flu for 11 days.  The pneumonia turned into double pneumonia. Seven days later and we are still at the hospital...hoping and praying he will be released today. We are taking it one day at a time.  

I'm very thankful my youngest son is getting better...slowly. which is fine with me while he builds the strength needed to be well, once again.  For the doctors and medicine that has helped him and now my oldest son.  I'm thank for for all the prayers, support and well wishes from friends, personal and Recipes For My Boys, and family, they are greatly appreciated.  Not only for my youngest but for all of us, my oldest is sick now.  I'm thankful I am able to be beside them, should they need to lean on me.  In front of them, should they need guidance.  Behind them, if ever they start to fall.   I'm Thankful for being Blessed with My Three Boys that fill my heart with love and happiness.   For being given the greatest of all gifts..that of being a Mama to my precious children and wife to a loving, caring husband of 24 years.  I Love You All!  

As this was being published, the nurse came in and said  he could go home!!!!!  So very thankful!!!!

NOTE:  Since we were never able eat this turkey.   I am not certain how the bay leaves will be.  Personally, I think they add a great hint of flavor.  You be the judge as this is my "Tasteless Turkey!" 

Roast Turkey

12 to 14 lb turkey, fresh or thawed completely
 2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoon ground garlic
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon white pepper or to taste
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon celery seed
2-3 bay leaves, optional
1 stick butter, very cold, cut in 16 slices
1 lemon, halved

Spray roasting pan and rack.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Mix everything except bay leaves and butter together and put in an empty spice container if you have one.  Put aside.
Cut butter and place on plate.  Sprinkle both sides with spice mix using only enough to coat slices.  Alternately, dip each slice of butter in spice mixture to coat each side.
Removed giblets and neck from thawed turkey.  Save if you are going to make gravy.
Rinse turkey, inside and out.  Pat dry. 
Slide fingers under skin, starting at the neck, and gently loosen the skin without tearing it.  
Place slices of spiced butter under the skin on the breast and legs, saving 2 to 4 slices to rub turkey skin with.
Rub turkey with remaining slices of butter.
Put turkey on it's back on rack in pan. 
Squeeze lemon over turkey.
Sprinkle inside and out with remaining spice mixture. 
Put lemon halves inside turkey cavity.
Add bay leaves.  

Cook on lowest rack in preheated 325 oven for 1 hour.  Baste with juice in pan continue to baste every 30 minutes.  Cook for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours or until thickest part of thigh, without touching the bone is 180 degrees F.   Remove from oven, tent with foil and let rest at least 30 minutes before carving.  Enjoy!

Three Cheese Garlic Grits

Grits!  There isn’t a Southerner around that hasn’t had a bowl of grits.  With nothing added to them, they are plain, blah and just not good at all.  When you add salt, garlic, cheese, bacon and/or are in for a southern delight!  Something to keep in mind…when grits boil, they hurt you if they land on you.  They will pop out of the pot like crazy if they are cooking too high.  When they get on you….they stick to you and burn.   Just keep them simmering and you’ll be fine.  ~smile~

3 Cheese Garlic Grits with Shrimp
Three Cheese Garlic Grits

4 cups water, chicken broth is Great
1 cup grits, old fashion
1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons minced garlic, I used bottled in water
1 medium to large bay leaf
1- 2 teaspoon kosher salt, to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
3/4 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2  - 3/4 cup parmesan cheese

Bring water, or chicken broth, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and bay leaf to a boil.  Stir in grits, cover and reduce heat to a simmer.  Cook according to directions.  Add cheese, change the amounts to suit your taste, when done.  Taste and add more seasoning if desired. 
Serve with sautéed or fried shrimp, eggs, ham…you get the idea!

Pork Chops are a stable in our house.  Seems like we are forever eating pork and chicken.  That being the case...We are always looking for new, delicious ways to cook them.  I mixed this yesterday and "it was very tasty" my boys like to say.  ;D   I'll be using this on chicken breast also.  This only made enough to smear on the top.  Double, or triple, to suit your needs.  

Honey Garlic Mustard Pork Chops

6 Pork Chops...boneless, thin cut
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 - 1 teaspoon soy sauce
1- 2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons honey mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Mix honey, soy sauce, garlic and mustard together.  
Spoon over pork chops.  
Sprinkle salt and pepper on chops, if desired.  
Cook at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until done...internal temperature of 145 degrees.  Do not over cook!  Let sit for a few minutes before serving.
