There are so many good recipes out there that are given in weighted form.  Unfortunately most of the home cooks I know don't have a good scale.  Not to worry!  All Recipes has provided you with a conversion tool with mostly accurate conversions.  You still may have to experiment a little to get it right for you.  http://allrecipes.com/HowTo/Baking-Ingredient-Conversions/Detail.aspx <

Remember all recipes are just a guide; make it fresh and make it your own!

Mama . . . do you suppose Tator Tot Taco Casserole could be adapted for the crock pot ? If so, how would you go about it ? Thanks !

Mama Smith I'm hoping that you have the e-mail option set and will see my Question about your Crock pot Kalua pig. Sounds so good to this Haole grandma but in Mississippi we don't have access to banana leaves. I'm sure I will make this with out the leaves sound to good not to try. Just wondering will it taste the same?

I feel so lucky to have found Goya banana leaves in MS. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe with all of us.

About Me
I am a paramedic, personal chef & caterer. I love making old family recipes from my eclectic Hawaiian and Southern heritage with a healthy twist to them. Most of my recipes can be made with local ingredients. The most important part of any recipe is making it your own and keeping it fresh. Remeber recipies are only guides! I have been going back to basics more and more. Using hand utensils and using less electric appliances. I also started making my own soaps and lotions like my grandma used to! I have recipes for these posted at www.lonestarnaturals.com
My favorite things to cook
I still love to bake desserts and experiment with time tested recipes. I love cooking for my church making casserole and good old fashioned comfort foods like slow cooker pot roast and chicken pot pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love traditional Thanksgiving! Fresh cranberry orange sauce, turkey (baked, smoked and fried), buttermilk cornbread dressing, sweet potato souffle and of course pies, pies, pies. The fall holiday season gives us an opportunity to reflect on our many Blessing and give.
My cooking triumphs
Baking biscuits and chocolate gravy with as much love as my Mamaw.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count, but with every tragedy comes triumph through learning!
