@house_cat --- and thank  you for the Food 52 recommendation.  I will definitely check it out.  Now, instead of getting to bed around 2-2:30 AM, I may add another hour to my nightly viewing.  It's amazing how one could get along on 4 or 5 hours of sleep.  

 

It's amazing just how much stuff, good and bad on UT.  I find myself watching the stray animals who have been so badly neglected.  If I weren't so old, 77, I'd adopt in a minute.  Although I'm in decent health, IMO, I worry who would take care of one of these critters if something should happen.  

 

One more thing before I check out Food 52 --

Without mentioning names or programs, I hear you about "productions better than network shows."  I totally agree.  

 

ETA If you like Italian cooking and food, check out Sip and Feast also on YT.  Nothing exotic, just every day Italian cooking.

@coffee drinker : Different recipes and taste.😀😀😀 Some southerners call cornbread made with eggs: Egg bread. Some southerners prefer a sweet cornbread. Some southerners prefer butter milk added instead of regular milk. Today, I was lazy and used a cornbread mix.

What kind of thoughtful person you are, there’s not a lot of people around anymore like that they become harder to find. I never really did like all the ads in those videos just seem like this last year they just skyrocketed. 🐸

Lately I've been hooked on watching videos on You Tube, especially a woman from AL named Karen Jones.  She's fun to watch and her recipes are typical "home cook" style.  Stuff most of us would enjoy cooking and eating.  Occasionally, her husband will pop in and add a bit to her show, but he's not annoying.  If anyone has the time or inclination, check her out.  I think some of you would enjoy her.  No happy dance, either. 


I like to watch Brenda Gantt cooking videos.  She is also from Alabama.  She is a retired grade school teacher and demonstrates southern country cooking.  Her videos  remind me of my mother's cooking. 

 

My Mama used to make fried pies like Brenda does on her videos.  Mama would dry sliced apples from our apple trees outside on big tables in the sun.  Those (the dried apples) were put up to be used in the winter time.  Brings tears to my eyes just thinking about those times.

 

Brenda's videos can be found if you google 'Cooking with Brenda Gantt'.
