 This recipe is from my Aunt Hazel in Shelby Gap, Kentucky. I had to follow her around her kitchen with a pad and pencil to get this. It is really delicious. She told me, "Now don't go letting anybody see you put that food coloring in. They'll think it's not fittin' to eat, but it gives it a real rich color". Whenever I make this I feel like she's looking over my shoulder making sure I do it right.

Chicken & Dumplings

One 4-6 lb. Baking Hen
2 cans Chicken Broth
1 Onion
1-2 ribs celery
2-3 carrots
2-3 drops Yellow food coloring
½ teaspoon. Poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon. Lawrey’s seasoning salt
½ teaspoon. Black Pepper
One thing that makes a big difference is to buy a baking hen instead of a fryer. Then gently boil it in chicken broth to cover. This gives a wonderfully flavorful broth. Cook until meat is almost falling off the bones 1-1 1/2 hrs. Coarsely chop 1 onion, 2 ribs celery and 2-3 carrots. Sauté in a little butter and set aside. Remove chicken from broth to cool. Add onions, carrots and celery to broth. When cool enough to handle, pull chicken off bones and return meat to broth. Add 2-3 drops of yellow food coloring-not more- this makes it look really rich. I then add 1/2-tsp. poultry seasoning, Lawrey's seasoning salt & pepper to taste

Dumplings

¼-1/2 cup chicken broth (dip this out of the pot)
1 ¾ cup self-rising flour (can use Bisquick)
Mix together and then take a teaspoon or tablespoon (depending on t he size dumplings you want) and gently drop on top of boiling broth. I cover with a lid to let them steam, about 10-15 minutes or so-then uncover and make sure they are done, and leave lid off and cook about 5 minutes to firm up a bit.

This is the recipe my mother gave me when I got married.
Granny’s Corn Bread
1 ½ tablespoons cooking oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 ½ cups white cornmeal
½ cup yellow cornmeal
¾ cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 ½ teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 Tablespoon honey
1 ¼-1 ½ cups buttermilk
Heat oven to 350. Put butter and oil in cast iron skillet or heavy pan and
place in oven to heat. Mix dry ingredients together. Add rest of
ingredients and mix together. Add hot butter and oil, stir to mix. Bake
for 28-32 minutes or until top is browned medium.
You know I don’t use a recipe for corn bread or biscuits, just judge how
many people you cook for and adjust accordingly. So this is as
accurate as I can remember. I love you and hope your marriage is
happy.

As a child, growing up in Kentucky, I would often visit my aunt. I always begged her to make this cake for me, and she would always say, "You know what you have to do". I had to go get the apples out of the cellar, peel them, chop them, and then watch my baby cousin while she baked the cake. It seemed like a lot of work to a kid, but it was sure worth it.



Fresh Apple Cake

2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

1/4 cup orange juice

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon cinnamon

1 Tablespoon vanilla

1 teaspoon rum flavoring

3 cups peeled and finely chopped apples

1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup chopped pecans

Sauce

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Heat oven to 325. Lightly grease and flour 10" bundt or tube pan. In electric mixer bowl, beat sugar, oil, eggs, juice, vanilla, flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together until just combined. Scrape down sides of bowl and stir in by hand: apples, and if using, coconut, and pecans. Pour into prepared pan and bake until tester comes out clean, about 50-60 minutes (could be longer) Just before cake is done, make the sauce. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, stir in the sugar, buttermilk and baking soda, and bring to a good rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Prick surface with toothpick, and pour on soaking syrup quickly while cake is still hot and in pan. Cool to room temperature (about an hour). Invert and remove cake.
