I was blessed to have my great friend Jellyroll in the kitchen with me
this week to cook up some traditional garlic and cheese biscuits.
Whenever we're in a kitchen together we have the best time! We just
make each other laugh all the time, as you can see in the video!
Jellyroll is practically a biscuit expert (she even sees them in her
sleep!), so it's a joy to share some dough with her.
Watch the video to see us make a few jokes and a lot of biscuits!
1 1/2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 (4-ounce) tenderized beef round steak*
1 teaspoon House Seasoning
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
2 cups buttermilk
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 quart whole milk
1 bunch green onions, or 1 medium yellow onion
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper in a
small bowl. Sprinkle 1 side of the meat with the House Seasoning and the
other side with the seasoning salt, and then dredge the meat in
buttermilk and then flour. Heat 1/2 cup oil in a heavy skillet over
medium-high heat. Add 2 or 4 of the steaks to the hot oil and fry until
browned, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Remove each steak to a paper
towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with the remaining steaks, adding up
to 1/4 cup more oil, as needed.
Make the gravy by adding the 2 tablespoons of remaining
flour to the pan drippings, scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon.
Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and the salt. Reduce the heat
to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the flour is medium
brown and the mixture is bubbly. Slowly add the whole milk stirring
constantly. Return the steaks to the skillet and bring to a boil over
medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low, and place the onions on top of
the steaks. Cover the pan, and let simmer for 30 minutes.

of the pork. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Place pork in a slow cooker. Set on low heat and cook for 10 hours.
Transfer from the slow cooker to a roasting pan and shred with two
forks, removing any large pieces of fat. Pour the broth into a
heatproof pitcher or large fat separator, and skim off the fat. Put the
pork back into the slow cooker.
Combine the barbecue sauce and 3 cups
of the skimmed broth. Stir into the pork and cook 2 hours. Using a
slotted spoon, remove the pork from the slow cooker. Place the meat on a

Add the vanilla and continue to beat until mixture holds
its shape, approximately 5 minutes. Stir in pecans.

If the candy becomes too stiff, add a few drops of hot water.

For quick and easy pies, use one 21-ounce can of apple pie filling instead of making your own.
Paula Deen's Fried Apple Pies Recipe
2 tablespoons butter
4 McIntosh apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Flour, for dusting
1 8-biscuit package refrigerated jumbo flaky biscuits
Oil, for spraying
Powdered sugar, for dusting
In a large sauté pan, melt butter. Add apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Sauté over medium heat until apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out biscuits into 7- to 8-inch-diameter circles. Place 2 or 3 tablespoons of the apple filling on each circle and brush edges with water.
Fold half of each circle over filling to make a half-moon shape. Seal by pressing edges with tines of a fork.
Working in batches of 2, spray pies on both sides with oil and place in air fryer basket lined with parchment paper. Set temperature to 350°F, and air-fry for 5 minutes. Flip pies, spray with oil, and air-fry for 5 minutes more. Repeat with remaining pies. Dust pies with powdered sugar.
¾ cup cake flour
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1¼ teaspoons ground ginger
¾ teaspoon ground allspice
6 large eggs, separated
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons dark rum
1 cup whipping cream
3 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
10 tablespoons plus ½ cup English toffee pieces
1½ cups purchased caramel sauce, warmed
To make the cake:
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a 15-by-10-by-1-inch baking sheet with parchment paper, then spray with vegetable oil cooking spray.
Sift the flour, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice into a small bowl. Beat the egg yolks, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer until very thick. Add the pumpkin and combine at low speed until incorporated. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until mixed.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites and salt until stiff but not dry. Fold into the cake batter with a spatula until most of the white streaks are gone.
Spread the batter onto the prepared baking sheet and smooth out the top. Bake until a cake tester comes clean, about 15 to 18 minutes. While hot, dust the cake generously with confectioner's sugar. Loosen the edges and turn the cake out onto a kitchen towel.
Fold the towel over the long edge of the cake and roll up lengthwise like a jelly roll. Let cool completely, seam down, for one hour in the refrigerator.
To make the filling: In a small saucepan, soften the gelatin in the rum. Stir over low heat until the gelatin dissolves. Let cool. Beat the cream and confectioner's sugar in a large bowl until peaks form. Fold in the gelatin and 6 tablespoons of the toffee pieces.
Unroll the cake. Spread the filling over the cake, then sprinkle with 4 tablespoons of the toffee pieces. Starting at one long side and using the towel as an aid, roll up the cake. Place the cake, seam down, on a platter. The cake can be prepared one day in advance. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate.
To serve, trim the ends of the cake on a slight diagonal. Dust the cake with confectioner's sugar. Spoon some warm caramel sauce over the top, then sprinkle with ½ cup toffee pieces. Cut the cake crosswise into 1½ inch slices, using a serrated knife. Pass more warm sauce -- and enjoy the compliments!
3 pounds fresh green beans
¼ pound salt pork, sliced
¼ cup bacon grease (pour this into a jar and keep on hand in the refrigerator to use as needed)
2 cups chicken broth plus more if needed (canned is fine)
2 to 3 teaspoons House Seasoning
12 small red potatoes, or more
1 onion, cut into slivers
Remove ends from the beans. Snap the beans in two, place into a colander, wash, and she aside to drain.
Meanwhile, in a large cast-iron Dutch oven, lightly brown the salt pork in the bacon grease over medium heat, turning often, for approximately 10 minutes.
Toss the green beans into the pot, stirring them with a wooden spoon to coat well with the pork fat. Add the stock and House Seasoning.
Cook over medium-low heat, covered tightly, for approximately 30 minutes, or until the beans are half done.
While the beans are cooking, peel a center strip from each new potato with a potato peeler. At the end of 30 minutes, add the potatoes and onion to the beans; add ¼ cup more broth if needed. Cook, covered tightly, until the potatoes are tender, approximately 25 to 30 minutes, periodically checking the pot to make sure a small amount of liquid remains.
When the potatoes are tender, tilt the lid slightly, off to the side of the pot, and continue to cook until the green beans are wilted, approximately 15 minutes.
