Jessie James Decker's Fruit Salad

A family favorite, fruit salad recipe made with fresh cream, pineapple, mandarin oranges, grapes, apples, strawberries, maraschino cherries, sliced bananas and marshmallows. 
I love easy holiday side dishes and this Fruit Salad is one of those recipes. For the longest time this Ambrosia Fruit Salad or Jell-O Fluff has always graced our holiday table, but last Christmas, I came across Jessie James Decker's Fruit Salad recipe and I have to say that it's just as equally delicious. 

This fruit salad is creamy, light and packed full of fruit flavor. You can serve this as a dessert or a side dish, making it perfect for holidays, potlucks or cookouts. This fruit salad is made with fresh cream, pineapple, mandarin oranges, grapes, apples, strawberries, maraschino cherries, sliced bananas and mini marshmallows.  🍒🍍🍎 🍌🍇

Oven Baked Whiskey Barbecue Chicken Drumsticks

Oven roasted barbecue chicken legs, smothered in a sticky, whiskey barbecue sauce. These chicken drumsticks are tender, juicy and full of flavor.
Chicken legs are one of my family's favorite ways to enjoy chicken, so I prepare them quite often. For the longest time these Easy Peasy Roasted Chicken Legs were my go-to-drumstick recipe, but recently we've been enjoying these oven baked barbecue chicken legs. 

These yummy drumsticks are seasoned and marinated in olive oil, Montreal steak seasoning and dry Italian dressing, then baked and smothered in a sticky Whiskey barbecue sauce and baked again until tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.

Southern Skillet Fried Corn

A sweet and savory skillet style corn made from fresh corn, cut off the cob and sauteed in a cast iron skillet with bacon grease, butter and seasoning. 
Summer is the time of year when fresh corn is plentiful. There's nothing better than munching on an ear of corn, smothered in melted butter and sprinkled with seasoning salt. Oh how I love corn season in the south. There are so many ways to enjoy corn on the cob, but southern fried skillet corn is my absolute favorite. 

Skillet Fried Corn is fresh corn that has been scraped off the corn cob and sauteed in a cast iron skillet with bacon grease, butter and seasoning. Skillet corn is a delicious summer side dish that's really simple to make.

Dilly Beans - Pickled Green Beans

Dilly Beans are crunchy relish style green beans, pickled in a simple brine and flavored with fresh dill, garlic and chili flakes. 
Dilly Beans
I just recently purchased and learned how to use a pressure canner! It was a bit intimidating, but once I got over the fear it was really pretty easy. I had an abundance of green beans in my garden and I wanted to can them, but the only safe way to process green beans, other than pickling is by using a pressure canner. 

Green beans are low in acidity, so hot water bath canning is not recommended or safe. Before my pressure canning days, I either froze or pickled my fresh green beans. Adding vinegar adds acid, which makes it safe to process the green beans in a hot water bath canner. Pickling green beans is one of the easiest canning recipes.
