Still cooking.....

Amidst this busy summer, the cooking has continued using recipes from my cookbook collection.

Today's featured book was a Christmas gift from a friend (thank you, GPW) in 1998.

One of The Husband's favorites is this one -

So - I got busy and sautéed the green pepper and onion....

Then I added the tomatoes and seasonings....

Finally it was ready for the best part....the cornmeal dumplings!

White Lily was once milled in my hometown, so it is not difficult to find that brand on our grocery store shelves.

This one for biscuits has become a historic recipe.

This is the last day of August!  Has this been a busy summer for you?


  1. This looks delicious, Nellie! I've never had cornmeal dumplings, they sound divine!

  2. Well, Sister, you know how I feel about White Lily products! This sounds really interesting, and I just might try it with my family soon. Have a wonderful Wednesday! Love you!

  3. Nellie, I laugh at myself...I did not know you could use cornmeal to make dumplings. That looks like a delicious meal. I fixed our lunch today...first real cooking for about a week. LOL. It was green beans, potatoes and smoked sausages. Ted loves's not my fav..But I can eat it. Blessings to you, hope all is well there. xoxo, Susie

  4. Yummy! Nice to see a post from you. I've missed you. : )

  5. I've never had cornmeal dumplings, Nellie. I bet this is good! Have a great evening. ♥

  6. I'm sure it's delicious, but I'm allergic to onions. It was a sensitivity until recently. Now it's out-and-out swollen tongue, lips, cheeks, and burning throat because I accidentally ate a tiny piece of onion recently.
