Love your website! The recipes are wonderful!
Does anybody have any good recipes for Okra? A neighbor gave me bags and bags of the stuff and other than gumbo I don’t know what to make with it.
Pat…..I love mine fried and my husband likes it cooked with tomatoes and onions. We grow plenty of it so to satisfy both of us, I freeze it two ways. For my hubby I reserve the smaller ones and put them whole in a ziploc freezer bag. For myself, I cut it up into bite size pieces for frying and do the same. When using, it is simple to rinse in cold water and it thaws quickly! I also make pickled okra for him but it’s not as easy as freezing!!
Okra is great pickled and canned
Fried it the only way to cook okra! Just slice it in 1/4 – 1/2 inch slices. Put it in a empty bread bag with cornmeal, salt, black pepper and a little flour and shake until well coated. Melt Crisco (enough to cover the bottom with about 1/8″ –especially good in a cast iron skillet) and pour in your okra. Cook stirring occasionally until browned! Serve with slices of vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes and fresh creamed corn. This will be the best meal you’ve ever eaten.
A twist I use is to heat my oil in a cast iron skillet, when oil is hot add Seasoned Louisiana Fish Fry to skillet. Enough to coat okra.
Also I slice, coat with fish fry and lay out flat one layer thick on a cookie sheet and freeze till solid & bag. No more frozen chunks.
Hi Pat grew up n the Carolina n I love Okra try some n veggie beef soups or just steam them put okra in pot with salt to taste add little oil add water enough to cover n a touch of vinger depends on the amount of okra let it come to a boil turn down to simmer until tender they r great with greens n cabbage r just eating them by themselves
I love your website too! It makes my life easier cooking for my brothers and granddaughter that is for sure. Don’t think I could get dinner on the table without you after a hard day of work.
I love your recipes! All your recipes easy to prepare
Love your site! Yummy recipes.
Do you have any gluten free recipes.?
I have a few, but not many. Have you ever checked out Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures? She has a lot of gluten free recipes and her cooking style is similar to mine.
I was looking at your recipes earlier and they looked delicious, so I signed up for emails. Now I can’t see anything. Every time try to look at recipes it say…oops, this content is for members only. Any suggestions?
Elizabeth, I’m so sorry! This shouldn’t happen at all. I’m going to run it past my tech person to see if we can fix it. You should be able to see everything! Thanks for letting me know.
Just signed up and can not find the weekly recipes. This site is not as easy as it sounded. Would like to use it but not finding things.
Shelley, if you’ve got more questions, you can send an email to email@example.com. You should get an email once you’ve confirmed your address that has a link to the member page. And you can always find that link at the bottom of the right hand side bar. Let me know if you need anything else.
Just signed up. Your recipes look amazing! However the drop down menu in recipe box doesn’t go anywhere. I click on main dish…as an example…and it stays on the page titled recipe box that says to click on the drop down menu.
Cindy, the drop down menu should work for anyone. Are you on a mobile device? I’m not sure why the links aren’t working for you. That’s strange.
Ok well not sure what happened, but it works now. Yay! I love your recipes!!! Thanks Tiffany!
My son when he was quite small tried Okra..his response was Mom it keeps getting snotier
