Split Pea Soup
I was concerned with the flavor issue addressed by others so I decided to be slick. I soaked my peas overnight in 1 qt. of Aldi's Fit & Active chicken broth and 1 qt. of the broth from boiling 3/4 lb. of smoked turkey wings. I then sauteed 1 diced onion in 2 tablespoons of EVOO in my dutch oven and added the peas, broth and smoked turkey wings. I brought it to a boil then a simmer and added the other diced onion and a couple of cloves of fresh minced garlic. I then added a diced red potato, the carrots and celery, the marjoram, and I also added a pinch of oregano and thyme (I didn't add salt or pepper). Everything was cooking wonderfully but was very runny. Then it dawned on me. The peas soaked up the liquid and I had added more liquid to bring the total to 2 qt. I ended up adding an additional 2 cups of peas to get the right consistency (the reason being, as others have commented, peas are not like beans, they absorb liquid and soften quickly). When it finally got there, folks, it was one of the best things I've ever made in my life. Absolutely delicious. My dad and I used to go out for split pea soup at a local restaurant every Tuesday night after work before he passed away. This great recipe brought back those memories. Thanks for sharing it, bluebayou.

Grandma's Corn Bread Dressing
I used the Grandma's Cornbread recipe as my base, then followed the recipe with a few amendments. I used Fit & Active chicken broth from Aldi, added 3 T of sage and made sure not to over mix. Once I combined everything, I added one can of cream of chicken soup and one can of cream of mushroom soup. The result was the best dressing I ever made. Normally my dressing gets stiff and you have to add milk to loosen it up for leftovers. Not now. The consistency was perfect. Again, don't over mix it. I lightly greased my dutch oven and baked it it the oven covered for 20 min, then uncovered for another 15. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

Homesteader Cornbread
I usually make the 'Grandma's' recipe but decided to try this one because it didn't call for buttermilk. It was not a successful tria. and I ended up dumping the entire batch. I did take away the technique of soaking the cornmeal in the buttermilk, which I did in Grandma's recipe. It came out more delicious. Thanks for the tip. To anyone making this recipe I would definitely advise against using so much flour (maybe 1 - 1 1/2 cups) and over mixing. I'd mix it by hand until just blended. I followed the instructions and it came out dense but in a doughy way and flavorless.
