Culinary Week #4

Week #4 is in the books and I have to say I think this has been my favorite week yet! A lot of these recipes are actually ones I grew up on as my Mom(growing up in Southern Illinois) was constantly making. So yeah I think everything this week averaged above a 7 out of 10 rating. Prepare for all the comfort foods!

Homemade Ice Tea 9 out of 10- a little too sweet for me, but only slightly.
Buttermilk Biscuits(recipe– I did add a bit more butter to mine because the batter wasn’t coming together) First time I have every made biscuits and they turned out amazing! 10 out of 10
Chicken Pot Pie Soup 10 out of 10. Tay especially liked this soup pretty much licking the bowl dry.
My Mom’s Southern Style Cabbage 10 out of 10
My Mom’s Southern Style Green Beans 10 out of 10
“Healthy” Sausage Gravy and Biscuits(recipe– obviously just used the gravy part) and my Mom’s cinnamon apples 8 out of 10 and 10 out of 10 respectively.
Buttermilk Pie 10 out of 10 and no-churn vanilla ice cream 9 out 10(tasted more like yogurt but amazing yogurt)
Fried Orca 10 out of 10- so delicious!
Mac and Cheese Bake(recipe) 10 out of 10
Fried Catfish 5 out of 10. Our “eh” moment of the week.
Cornbread 10 out of 10 I think I could live off of this… literally.

Yeah might have gone a little overboard with the food this week, but at least we’ll have amazing leftovers. Since this next week is super busy for us and then it’s Easter we will be waiting till the first of April for our next challenge. However because we can’t wait here is our next word: Jane Austen!!

Lots of love,
