There's a story behind every GG's Recipe

My cookbook was written to help bring families back to the table.

It is filled with tips and stories. It has note pages in it to make it your own. Creating memories with the ones you love. Family and Friends!

Here are some of the great recipes you will find in by cookbook:

Squash Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium to large yellow squash 

  • 1 medium to large onion, chopped 

  • 3 Tablespoons butter 

  • Salt to taste 

  • GG's Bodacious Creole Seasoning® to taste 

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper 

  • 1 Tablespoon sugar 

  • 1 hunk of cornbread or about 2 large handfuls (leftover, homemade or store bought are all great) 

  • 1 egg, beaten 

  • 1 ½ cup grated cheddar cheese

 

Preparation: 

I wash everything y'all. Wash the squash and cut into slices. Cut onion. First, put butter in skillet on low heat. Let it melt. Add onions. Stir until onions caramelize. (To caramelize, cookuntil the onions are clear and very brown from cooking in their own juices). Add squash. 

Cover and stir occasionally. The squash will make its own juices. Add salt, Creole seasoning, cayenne pepper, and sugar. When it has cooked down, taste and add more seasoning if desired. 

Then take that hunk of cornbread and crumble it in a separate bowl. Add the egg to the com bread and stir it up. Let the squash mix cool a bit then add to the cornbread mix. 

Put everything in a greased casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with cheese. Return to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted. 

Make plenty. They will want seconds. 

 

Thank you Lord! Finally a Squash Casserole that's good! 

Banana Pudding

​Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cups whole milk (I call it sweet milk) 

  • 1/3 cup flour 

  • 3 egg yolks (reserve egg whites for meringue) 

  • 1/2 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract 

  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice 

  • ¾ cup sugar 

  • 4 -5 bananas 

  • ½ package vanilla wafers 

Preparation:

 

Filling:

 

Mix milk, flour, egg yolks, vanilla extract, lemon 

juice, sugar and cinnamon into a double boiler. 

If you do not have one, make your own by using a pot with water and a smaller pot or a heat proof bowl on top. Stir until mixture thickens, then remove from heat. 

Prepare a crust by layering vanilla wafers on the 

bottom of a pie dish. Add sliced bananas and then filling . Layer with vanilla wafers, bananas and 

filling till there is nothing left. 

Put into refrigerator while preparing meringue. 

 

Meringue: 

  • 3 egg whites 

  • 6 Tablespoon sugar 

 

For meriugue topping, whip egg whites with electric mixer until fluffy. Add sugar 2 tablespoons at a time, whipping until the mixture stands in peaks. 

Remove pie from refrigerator and spread meringue on top. Bake in a 425 degree oven for about 5-10 minutes or until meringue is brown. 

Tip: You can use a Graham Cracker crust instead of vanilla wafers. You can also use whipped cream instead of meringue.
