Coleslaw


Coleslaw do you like it? Do you make it or bring home readymade? I have some family members that make really delicious coleslaw. However I rarely make it yet love it! I wonder why?

Today I'm sharing a  'Todd Wilbur Copy Cat Recipe' from  KFC and the Original Chick fil A Coleslaw Recipe: two of the most at one time readily available and well liked versions.

SMOKED HAM with PINEAPPLE BROWN SUGAR GLAZE



Some of you may remember this recipe I had it on the Dolly is Cooking Blog a few years back.
 
We really like ham around here but haven't had it much this year. I think we've missed it. Thanks to our local KJ'S Market we'll have it again soon.

I watched mama make her wonderful version of this for years. Oh my gosh her hams tasted like a dessert they were so delicious! 

So today I'm sharing my favorite baked ham recipe. I've described it in detail so this can be a beginner recipe as well.

Thanksgiving Menu Must-Haves



Goodness, it's November and almost time for Thanksgiving!  Where did the time go? This has been one of the most unusual years I can ever remember!  It will soon be Turkey Time as a co-worker of mine used to call it. 

Some can't eat turkey or may not like it but chicken is a good substitution anytime! I've included a chicken and dressing casserole as well.

Today I'm going into the post archives and sharing the absolute must-haves in a Southern Thanksgiving Menu Main Course.
