Since I reposted Jennifer’s blog on her cookbook collection, I would like to share a particularly favorite Cookbook in my family.
This cook book has had an extended hiatus as my friend Caleb’s house. Maw-Maw graciously stored it in a drawer for me, and today I found it and plan to begin making use of it again.
I wish I could start a mission like Julie did in Julie & Julia to cook through all the recipes in the book, but that would require the use of meat.
This particular cookbook has 1400 recipes- yes, 1400- all in all.
I’ve made several of them- or variations of them.
Originally, my mom bought a copy of this cookbook for my aunt, and she liked it so much that she went and bought our family one.
Some of my favorite recipes from the book include the macaroni and cheese dishes.
Another neat thing about the book is that it’s full-color and includes full-color photograph guides of various kinds of foods- charts showing different cuts of meats and different kinds of cheeses, mushrooms, and so forth.
Stuck in front of the recipe book are recipes not included, so I thought I might share them here.
Gigi’s Seasoned Crackers
What you need:
- 1 box of Saltine crackers
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups of Canola oil
- 2 Tablespoons of Red Pepper flakes
- 1 packet of Ranch Dressing Seasoning Mix
What you do:
- Mix ingredients together in a plastic bag. Allow the ingredients to sit together overnight, then enjoy. The longer they sit, the better they are.
Warning: These crackers are spicy, very, very, spicy. They’re so spicy, in fact, that you might want to consider not using quite as much of the Red Pepper flakes if you’re not a fan of spice. If you are a fan of the spice, however- I say go for it.
