The Best Secrets...Ever

Tonight, I had a very special treat! I got some of the best cooking secrets from Jason's Granny ever! I have loved Jason's grandparents from the very first time I met them. And...Jason's Granny is one of the most amazing cooks I know. She is one of these...a dab of this and a pinch of that...until you get the right consistency for whatever you are making. While, I don't know how to cook like that. I have to have a recipe for everything that I make! I need exact measurements. I have wanted to know how to make Granny's fried chicken and biscuits since the first time I ate it. It is amazing! Better than anything you will ever be able to buy out. It just so happened that Granny and Grandaddy were coming for dinner tonight. I asked Jason if he thought Granny would teach me how to fry chicken and make biscuits. (Coming from the North, no one makes biscuits!) Biscuits are the ONE thing that my mom cannot make! So Jason called Granny and she said she would teach me how to make fried chicken and biscuits! So, tonight I learned how! I am just so excited. Not only because I now know how to make this delicious meal, but because I was able to learn first hand from the very best. When my Nana died she took lots of our favorite recipes with her. Granny reminds me so much of my Nana. I guess that is another reason why I love her so very much. So, thank you Granny for your wonderful lessons in the kitchen tonight. They mean more to me than you will ever know!

Put on the lid and let it cook!

McKenzie got tired of waiting so she got into the party mix!

Granny is telling me that you have to sift the flour for the biscuits. We used my Nana's sifter!
