Varied but all contain love...

Directions:
Directions:
* Add a tablespoon or more of sugar to most cooked vegetables, especially those with a tomato base, like sauces & soups but it is good with collards and green beans as well.
* Add a little Jiffy cornbread mix to your flour and corn meal when making batter for shrimp. It gives it a sweet taste and is soooo good.
* Sprinkle some salt, pepper, garlic salt, MSG (or Accent) & paprika on your chicken before breading with flour. It tastes great and the paprika makes it fry up a golden brown color.
* When frying green tomatoes, squash or other veggies, sprinkle salt on them after slicing and let them set for 5 minutes or so before peppering and breading. This "draws out the water" and makes them crispier when fried.
* Put several tablespoons (4 or 5 at least) of powdered coffee cream into instant mashed potatoes while whipping with water and butter. It makes them taste like homemade mashed potatoes.
* Always have something cooked so when folks come by, you can offer them something to eat.
* Teach all children to like vegetables.
* Let babies gnaw on a stripped clean chicken leg bone to help in teething. She insisted on this for Saralyn and she loved it as a baby.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These are mostly hints I learned from my Granny Elsie, to whom I was very close. This was Elsie Rock, my dad's mom. My Dad was an only child so I was her first grandchild and only granddaughter. Needless to say, she spoiled me and I loved to stay at her house. She loved to cook and always had something good to eat at her house that she was willing to share any time of the day or night.
Elsie was a Silcox before she married Clyde Carter, my dad's father and later married Norman Rock, the man I knew as Granddaddy. Granny Elsie was raised in Clay Hill and knew Arzell and Sadie growing up. She said they loved to dance and she often saw them at dances on Saturday night way back in the day.
Granny has long passed away but I think of her often and miss her very much.
