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!!

I love it fried but I think pickeled okra is one of the best foods ever and considering I have worked in the restaurant industry for over 20 years in everything from micky d’s to Olive Garden and everything in between I have tried a lot of different and wonderful foods it is high praise

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.

Saute one onion. Add 1 can/bag corn, okra, 1 large can tomatoes. Delicious.

Hi, I just bought a can of okra, diced tomatoes, and corn. It had a few seasonings…maybe garlic, basil, cilantro, parsley. Very good heated and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

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.

Do you have any gluten free recipes.?
August 4, 2013 at 6:33 pm
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?
September 8, 2013 at 9:12 pm
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.

October 27, 2014 at 5:50 pm

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.
January 4, 2014 at 2:57 pm
Shelley, if you’ve got more questions, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
June 8, 2014 at 7:45 pm
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.
June 8, 2014 at 10:39 pm
Ok well not sure what happened, but it works now. Yay! I love your recipes!!! Thanks Tiffany!

Ziplist.com is no longer available. Any other suggestions as to where to save favorite recipes? Thanks!
June 1, 2015 at 12:40 pm
Unfortunately, I don’t have another option for you. At least there’s nothing that I know of. Sorry! It’s too bad ziplist is gone.

Curiosity on my end about InstaPots…recommendations please. I haven’t jumped on board quite yet one do to cost and the other not very familiar with them at all. Suggestions would be helpful and why you recommend your favorite. What should I stay away from and which one is more appealing. Thanks so much in advance. I just signed up today and I’m really excited to take the “stress out” of my life trying to figure out what to make tonight.

Lou – The best place to start is with a comparison of the different electric pressure cookers and they’re features to narrow down what you need for your kitchen. Here’s a blog post comparing some of the most popular models
