Mommy's Kitchen - Recipes From my Texas Kitchen: Peanut Butter Pie & Sticky Chicken Legs + A Cookbook Review

Peanut Butter Pie & Sticky Chicken Legs + A Cookbook Review

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. The Cookbook winner is Cindy Leonard.


I have another tasty review and giveaway for y'all, and I'm super duper excited about this one. Come Home to Supper over 200 Casseroles, Skillets, and Sides (Dessert Too) To Feed your Family With Love is Christy Jordan's 2nd Cookbook!!!

I'm so glad it's finally here and I'm sure she is too. This cookbook is as wonderful as her first one,Southern Plate Classic Comfort Food That Makes Everyone Feel Like Family. And I'm not just saying that because were friends. This cookbook really is that awesome and I'm so stinkin proud of her!

Christy is such a sweet, sweet friend and one of the first blogging friends I met when I began my own blog journey back in 2008. It was a instant friendship, because we shared the same love of family, traditions and southern cooking. I call her my southern sister, because I really think we were separated at birth. 

All her recipes remind me of the food that I grew up eating. I love the cover of her cookbook as is shows her in front of her beloved Pyrex collection. If you know Christy and her blog, Southern Plate then you know she's a big Pyrex hoarder and I am so jealous of her huge collection.

Come Home to Supper has 10 chapters and is packed with 200 easy-to-prepare recipes that will comfort your soul. All of her recipes are simple, delicious, kid friendly and easy on your budget. That's definitely my kind of cookbook. I shy away from fancy schmancy cookbooks that have a huge list of ingredients, because they can be so intimidating. In my opinion simple is always best.

I was raised on home cooked meals and eating together as a family. I think today's families are leading such busy lives that they just don't have time for dinner. Due to the lack of time home cooked meals and family dinners get put on the back burner.

Come Home to Supper will get your family back on track and eating together as a family again. Christy even gives you the recipes, tools, conversation starters and inspiration to get your family back to the dinner table. I received this cookbook last week, so I've had plenty of time to go through it.

I love a good old fashioned pie, so when I was thumbing through the dessert section this Peanut Butter Pie immediately caught my eye. The photo in the cookbook was simply beautiful. It was one of the recipes that as soon as you saw the photo you said..... I have to make this! Christy's pie reminded me of a Amish Peanut Butter Pie I had a long time ago, but was unable to find the recipe. 

This decadent peanut butter pie has four delicious layers, a crumbly peanut layer in the bottom of the  pie crust, then a homemade vanilla custard is added. The pie is finished off with a fluffy meringue and additional peanut butter topping. This was the best peanut butter pie I have ever eaten (no lie). I thought the peanut butter pie recipe I had was good, but this recipe blows it away.  I'm definitely making this pie for our big family Christmas.



Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Pie 

1 - store bought 9 inch deep dish pie crust
1 - cup confectioners sugar
1/2 - cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
3 - large egg yolks (reserve whites for meringue)
2 - cups milk
2/3 - cups sugar + 1/4 cup, separated
1 - teaspoon vanilla extract
dash of salt 
4 - tablespoon cornstarch

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake the pie crust according to package directions and let cool. Place the confectioners sugar and peanut butter in a small bowl and cut together with a dinner fork until mixture is crumbly.

Place half of the peanut butter mixture in the baked pie crust (reserving the remainder).  In a large saucepan,  stir together the egg yolks, milk, 2/3 cup sugar, vanilla, salt and cornstarch. Cook over med-low heat, stirring constantly until thick, 4 - 5 minutes. Pour the cooked custard into the pie shell. 

Make the meringue, in a large clean bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread the meringue on top of the custard making sure to seal the edges all the way around.

Sprinkle the remaining peanut butter crumbles on top of the meringue. Bake until lightly browned 30 minutes. Refrigerate several hours uncovered to let the pie set up. Pie will keep 3 days stored covered in the refrigerator. 

Servings: 6-8



Next on the list were these Old Fashioned Sticky Chicken Legs. This recipe only has 6 ingredients and that's it. All of the ingredients are ones you probably already have in your pantry. The sauce is a sweet and tangy sauce that glazes the chicken. These were a huge hit in my house and the meat just fell of the bones. This recipe will be going on my regular dinner rotation.

 

Old Fashioned Sticky Chicken Legs

Cooking Spray
1 - cup ketchup
1 - cup honey
1 - cup brown sugar
1/2 - cup light soy sauce
1/2 - teaspoon garlic powder
8 to 12 chicken legs with skin (3 pounds total)
1 - cup uncooked white or brown rice

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a Dutch oven or 9- by 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. 

Combine the ketchup, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, and garlic powder in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until it comes just to a boil and the brown sugar has dissolved, 3 to 4 minutes.

Remove from the heat. Arrange the chicken legs in the prepared baking dish. Pour the sauce over the chicken, turning the pieces with tongs to coat them. 

Place the baking dish in the oven, uncovered, and bake until cooked through, 60 - 90 minutes, turning the legs halfway through the cooking time. 

While the chicken is cooking start on the rice. Cook the rice according to package directions. Place the rice on a platter and arrange the chicken legs on top. Spoon the sauce over all and serve.  

Recipe yields - 4 - 6 servings


Here are a few step by step photos. It's a real easy and straight forward recipe, so I don't think you can mess this one up.

And last but not least are these Tender Easy Cookie Bars. I have been making these ever since I found the recipe on southernplate.com. This is actually my go to cookie recipe, because they're so versatile.

You can add M&M's, Reese pieces, pecans, cranberries, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips or even candy corns. So many variations, but the M&M' version by far by far my favorite. 



Tender M&M Cookie Bars 

1/2 - cup M&M candies (I used 1 cup)
1/2 - cup oatmeal
1 - cup brown sugar, packed
2 - cups biscuit baking mix
1 - egg
1 - stick (1/2 cup) margarine, melted
1 - teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
Combine everything in a mixing bowl except candies. Mix until well blended. Stir in candies, reserving some to place on top. 


Pat into greased 8×8 pan. Press some additional M&M's on top and bake at 350 for about twenty minutes. Allow to cool and cut into bars. 

Recipe yields - one 8x8 inch baking pan & 16 servings



Besides recipes "Come Home to Supper" has positive quotes and encouraging thoughts scattered throughout the cookbook. After reading this cookbook I took away not only wonderful recipes, but knowing what's really important in our lives, FAMILY!

If you're looking for easy to prepare recipes and comforting meals then Come Home to Supper is the cookbook to buy. Right now you can purchase Christy's cookbook at Amazon for around $10.00 . That's a awesome deal my friends. It will also be available in bookstores and retailers on October 22, 2013. I suggest getting two, because they will make perfect holiday gifts.

My idea of southern comfort food is grits. Grits with shrimp or with eggs. Grits with cheese or veggies or meat mixed in. Nothing says comfort more than curling up with a warm bowl of creamy grits.

My favorite southern meal has to be chicken and dumplings served with field peas and peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream for desert. I have tried my best but no one will ever make these things as well as my Mama did! Tina I love you site and Christy's. There aren't enough cookbooks out there that teach simple southern cooking to those of us who didn't pay enough attention to Mama's when we were growing up.
Thank you.
