Gary,this reads like a really delicious chili recipe, and your allowing me to post it for others to enjoy is really appreciated.Thank you.There will be a pot of this chili simmering on the stove in a couple of days.Trish

Hi Trish,

I noticed you didn't have a Chili recipe, here's an easy one that is my favorite.   Enjoy!


Red Dog Chili

First ya catches yerself a BIG RED DAWG. . .


1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. oregano
3 tsp. salt
2 tsp. chili powder (hot)
1 dried red pepper (2 ½ inches long)
1 tsp. white pepper
1 clove garlic
1 med. yellow onion
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 lb. good ground chuck
1 lb. dry red beans

Wash your beans, remembering to remove all stones and foreign matter.  Cover with 2 quarts of water and soak 12 to 18 hours until thoroughly swelled.

In the large saucepan that you are going to use for your chili, brown 1 pound ground chuck (not pre packaged ground beef from the local grocery store if you can help it) if beef is extremely lean, brown in olive oil.

Chop your onion fine, in about ¼ to ½ inch squares.  Add this to your ground chuck, pour in tomatoes and bring to a slow boil.

Put a little salt on your breadboard, place clove of garlic on salt and smash with the side of your knife.  Chop the smashed garlic very fine and add to your pot, along with the rest of your spices.

Continue simmering a minimum of 4 hours.

If you desire a little additional zip, after you dish up your bowl, add Mexipep
( Trappey’s Louisiana Hot Sauce ) to taste.

Tip from Gary:  If you put your dry spices in a canning jar and cover with bourbon whiskey and seal with lid, your spices will be more flavorful when used and require less cooking time for the spices to blend.

Alice found an old cookbook at a garage sale.The title is Southern Cook Book there are only 322 recipes in there,written in Charlotte, N. C. Compiled and Edited by: Lillie S. Lustig S  Claire Sondhein. Sarah Rensel .Along with the recipes are sayings and a few poems scattered throughout.Thanks for sharing,Alice.

 Kentucky, Oh Kentucky, How I love your classic shades,
Where flit the fairy figures of the star eyed Southern maids;
Where the butterflies are joying mid the blossoms newly born;
Where the corn is full of kernels, And the colonels full of corn!

And another saying on another page.

"Some folks say preachers won't steal, But I caught two in my cornfield. One had a  bushel, One had a peck, One had a roastin`ear hung round his
neck. "

Here are some of the recipes from this old book.Sure sound good.

New York-Style Cheesecake

For the crust:
1 cup (250 ml) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar
1 tsp (5 ml) grated lemon zest
1 egg yolk
8 tbs (120 ml) butter, softened
About 2 Tbs (30 ml) water

Mix the flour, sugar, and lemon zest in a large bowl.  Add the egg
yolk and butter and blend with a fork.  Work the mixture, adding a few
drops of water at a time, until a dough is formed.  Form into a ball,
cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.  Roll one third of the dough on a
floured surface into a 9 inch (23 cm) round and ease it into the
bottom of a buttered 9 inch spring-form pan.  This dough is fragile,
so if it breaks just patch it back together.  Roll the remaining dough
in pieces and fit it against the sides of the pan, pressing the seams
together as you go.

For the filling:
40 oz (1100 g) cream cheese, softened
1+1/2 cups (375 ml) sugar
3 Tbs (45 ml) all-purpose flour
2 tsp (10 ml) grated lemon zest
5 eggs
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp (2 ml) vanilla extract
1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy cream

Beat the cheese, sugar, flour, and lemon zest in a large bowl until
smooth.  Beat in the eggs and yolks, followed by the vanilla and
cream.  Pour the cheese mixture into the crust and place on a
heavy-duty baking sheet.  Bake in a preheated 550F (290C) oven for 15
minutes.  Reduce the oven temperature to 200F (90C) and bake 1 hour.
Turn the oven off, open the oven door, and allow the cheesecake to
cool for 30 minutes.  Cake may be served chilled or at room
temperature.  Makes one 9-inch (23 cm) cake to serve 10 to 12.
