Our friend David Wallace has worked at numerous East Texas restaurants over his career. He’s even owned a few! His repertoire of recipes is endless and he loves to share the easiest and best with us so we can make wonderful things at home.
Shalene McNeill joined us to show us a wonderfully simple and extremely delicious recipe for stuffed poblano peppers. They’re full of Tex-Mex flavor and can be customized to however you’d like them to taste with the ingredients you have on hand.
So many times we see old cast iron pans that have been allowed to turn into orange, rusty messes, and some folks think they can’t be saved, so they throw them out. But most of the time, they can be salvaged with these "hacks" from Mama Steph.
Most people have seen vintage, or antique, yellow ware bowls, either in a relative’s home or a shop somewhere, if they don’t own it themselves. Why do so many of us have it, and how can we best take care of it?
The recipe for these sliders will satisfy football lovers as well as people who don’t like sports at all. They’re just that delicious. Plus, you don’t have to cook anything, which is a bonus sometimes.
Mama Steph was doing one of her favorite things ... wandering through one of East Texas’ many antiques shops ... when she came across some Fire King bowls that had been permanently damaged. Take a look.
This dinner can truly be made in about ten minutes because it’s made with some ingredients that are either quick cooking or pre-cooked for you. This can even be done on a grill if your power is out, which we know happens from time to time with our crazy East Texas weather.

Cooler days are coming (I have to believe it, y’all. I just have to.) and this flavorful soup is so delicious that it’ll be one we’ll all be making on repeat throughout the season. Happily, it’s easy to make, too!
Some of you, like me, may have seen this tip mentioned in other places, but have never tried it. I decided to give it a shot here on the Kitchen Care segment so we'd know once and for all how well ... or not... it works, and if it's as easy as it's claimed to be. Watch with me!
My mom had a book called Heloise’s Housekeeping Hints. I loved looking through it when I was a little girl, and now I look at it just to get some of the older tips that people used back in the 1950s and ‘60s to make their lives easier. I found one I wanted to share with you here.
“If we went back to December 21 really before the avian influenza outbreak, we would have had about 327 million egg laying chickens in the US. You fast-forward a year, and we have 308 million egg laying chickens. And that’s a pretty drastic cut in production,” Anderson said.
It’s only January, but garage sales are starting to pick up after the holidays. It looks like as long as the weather is cooperative, there may be some opportunities out there from now until Thanksgiving. This week, Jeff brings one find from a Sunday sale and the rest from storage.
