For about three years now I've been trying to put together a cookbook of the recipes I've used when cooking for the people who have recorded or just plain visited here entitled When It's Gotta Be Good and It's Gotta Be Easy. Since it doesn't appear as if I'm going to finish it any time soon, I thought I'd start a thread here with some of the recipes and hope that you might join in with some of your favorites.....hey, I'm always looking for new things to spring on the guys! Here is one of the recipes I served to Gregg and the musicians when they were working on Searching For Simplicity.....(see, this thread is related to the band after all )

First thing I'm going to start with is Barbeque Chicken with White Sauce

White Sauce:

1 quart mayonnaise (not miracle whip)
6 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
6 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. salt
2 Tbsp. pepper
4 Tbsp. sugar

Combine and set aside.

Chicken

Place chicken breasts (however many you're going to cook) into a lightly oiled baking pan and cover each breast with a couple of tablespoons of white sauce. Cover with aluminum foil or lid and bake at 400 degrees for about 50 to 60 minutes.

When done, remove from oven, remove cover and drain juice. Top with another tablepoon of white sauce and allow to sit for up to 8 hours (this is the beauty of this recipe....you can bake it early and be ready for whenever you need to have dinner ready)

When ready, place breasts on either a prepared charcoal fire or gas grill (much faster on a gas grill) and cook for about 5 to 8 minutes on each side making certain the chicken doesn't start to burn. At the end of cooking time, remove from fire and serve with white sauce.

This was my grandmothers, my mom and now mine... Breaded Chicken cutlets..

depending upon the amount your going to be preparing.. use judgement..

Crispy Crackers salted or Saltine Crackers
garlic salt
parsley
egg
Thin Slice Chicken Cutlets
Oil

crush the crispy/saltine crackers to a crunchy consistency put in large oval shaped bowl. Yes, I

do use a rollin pin for this.
Add to that garlic salt, parsley, mix
beat egg for dipping

Take thin slice Chicken cutlets , dip in egg wash and then coat with Crispy crackers evenly on both sides.
In fry pan with oil heated , add chicken cutlets cook until a golden brown on both sides..

Honestly , I can't eat chicken cutlets any other way... Delicious


hope you enjoy
rainy

2 cans whole kernal corn, drained
1 pt. ranch dressing
couple of cucumbers
couple of maters

taters on a grill:
bakin taters
long hot peppers (rooster spur, chipolte, whatever)
core the tater long wise, like a apple, put pepper in tater. wrap bacon round said tater, wrap in tin foil and put on grill til done.

When I lived in New Orleans, a Cajun girl showed me this--incredibly simple, a sort of salsa to put on anything, but especially any kind of beans, black-eyed peas, pintos, etc. Just dice up some tomatoes, green peppers (I like to use Cubanelles) and sweet onion, almost equal amounts of each. Salt and pepper to taste, and let set up for a day or more. The juices and flavors combine, and it is just plain good. I add cilantro if I've got some growing...

A simple slaw I make from my winter garden:
a small head of green cabbage
some purple cabbage and carrots, if you have 'em
couple of handfuls of cilantro (to taste)
onion
salt and pepper
red wine vinegar, olive oil and a bit of sugar

Broccoli salad
a head of broccoli
1/2 onion, chopped
8-10 slices of fried bacon
1 cup or more of grated cheddar cheese
black pepper to taste
salad dressing:
1 cup of mayo
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar

Four questions....

1) Will you marry me ?
2) Do I have to eat "maters"?
3) Do I have to move to Statesboro?
4) Can you roll a biscuit?

That sounds like a very true red beans and rice recipe to me. I would only add gumbo file' in the last 10 or 15 minutes (a powder made from sassafras leaves), essential to almost any Cajun dish. Also, I use a ham bone or ham hocks, and smoked hot sausage (preferably Nettles' from Lake City). Tabasco to taste. And a bay leaf or two. Never tried it in a crock pot, great idea!

Trying to keep it simple, that's hard...

Two or three cucumbers and a Vidalia onion, sliced in layers in a jar. Mix about 1/2 cup vinegar and same amount of sugar, lots of salt and pepper in measuring cup, pour into jar, add enough water to cover cukes. The longer you let it sit, the better.

Good, very good, marinade for pork tenderloin:
balsamic vinegar, olive oil, rosemary and garlic

speaking of balsamic vinegar...

fresh carrots, sliced
good amount of butter
a little salt and pepper
Cook until carrots are almost tender, add about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and same amount of brown sugar, cook another 5-10 minutes. I don't even like cooked carrots, and this recipe I can't get enough of...
