{Granny's Recipes}

I have had a real passion for cooking that was passed down by my Mother, Fern Sewell. Her kitchen was where everyone would gather to talk and share life's happenings while she kept on cooking.  

Mother had all the style of a true Southern cook.  She loved making a big pitcher of sweet tea and serving it with fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and cream gravy.  In the summer, we picked and canned all kinds of vegetables.  Her favorite meal was serving lady cream peas and chow chow relish with a bowl of sliced onions and tomatoes and that would not be complete without a pan of Southern cornbread.   

I grew up in the piney woods of East Texas in the 50's and 60's.  The memories of her recipes she created and cooked for me as a child, and shared with me as a young newlywed, are memories that I still have today.

  1. Hello Kay, I am so excited to find your blog. As I scrolled through your recipes I felt like I was back at my Grandmama's table waiting for dinner.I look forward to exploring every inch! Blessings, Kay M.

  2. I enjoyed reading your recipes. The page for Daddy's Lemon Icebox Pie does not exist. I grew up (Waco) eating pineapple Pie made like other fruit pies or as a pineapple pudding Pie, but never had it as a custard. I finally got to where I can make a really good biscuit, just not the way my grandmother (Groesbeck) made them. The only complaint I get is that they fall apart too easily when putting jelly inside. I was hoping you had a biscuit recipe that might help with my technique. I suspect temperature or possibly amount of fat, but I have tried numerous recipes over the years before getting the light fluffy biscuits I make now. Nobody makes them exactly like I do although there are many similar. I am looking forward to the sweet dill pickle recipe. My mother-i-law used to can semicream corn and also improved pinto beans. I think she got the bean seeds in Alabama or Tennessee. Thank you for your blog.

    1. Thank you for letting me know the link for the Daddy's Lemon Icebox Pie was not working. I have corrected the problem. Thank you for stopping by CWK! I do have a several good recipes for biscuits on the blog. Go to the upper lefthand corner and in the search box put in biscuits and it will take you to all of them.
