Sentiments Of A Southern Artist: "Kitchen Peculiarities"

I've been enjoying some time in the kitchen lately.  I lost my feel for cooking over the summer, the Georgia Heat was just too hot to think about being near the stove.  But lately with the arrival of cooler weather, I'm finding my groove again.

My favorite cookbooks right now are Nigella Lawson's "Feast" and a Williams-Sonoma book on Braises and Stews.  And I also keep a few of the passed-down Mississippi Recipes from my Grandmother at the ready.  Nothing like my Mammaw's Magic "Lemon Pie" when I need a good walk down memory lane.

Anyhoo..last night I made a recipe out of Nigella's book for Roast Chicken.  UNBELIEVABLY DEVINE!  I need to tell y'all if you add some cut-up Onions and Sweet Potatoes to the cooking may not be Mammaw's Magic, but darn near close.

I'll have to check out her book! I do love Williams-Sonoma. Anytime I make it into Dallas, I have to stop by there! I've been wanting to try their short rib recipe with polenta. The cool weather definitely increases my interest in cooking, too!! And, as for those handed-down favorites, there is just nothing to compare! LOL! Hugs from Texas! Tanna
