Granny Cantrell’s

“Your very own whistle-stop cafe’… Granny Cantrell’s!” That’s how the jingle goes when you hear it on many of the Panama City radio stations, and they nailed it when they sang that ditty. Cleave and I hit this little local game on 23rd St. for breakfast one day, and the place blows Waffle House away! My only regret was that we could not have been there for lunch instead. It was a Wednesday, and that day’s special was corned beef and cabbage. Cleave had been in a mood for something maple-y that day, and since we both had doctor’s appointments in town then, it was from Baldwin Ave. to Granny Cantrell’s, then to Pier Park, then back to Gulf Coast……

Rock N Roll Sushi

While awaiting a very long day of waiting for Cleave to get through a root canal up in Dothan, I craved some Japanese food. Due to his allergy to GMO corn, Japanese cuisine is just about the only kind he can eat when going out, and Dothan has its fair share of these kinds of places. It was a day of wait, wait, wait…. Fox News and puzzle video games that were much more interesting than Fox News, even if they were pretty much Candy Crush clones with a bit more challenge to them. After getting the procedure done, we headed to Pet Smart to get some catnip and cat grass plants for our little calico stoners, Mouse and Shelley,……

Peanut Butter Candy

While making a standard Southern version of No-Bake Cookies, Cleave tried the originals, and found at first he didn’t care for them because of the oats in them, but changed his mind after the second day. The he couldn’t help himself. He then suggested I try making them with some other kinds of cereals. So I tried toasted oat O’s, then he suggested we just don’t use any grains at all, and set them in a 9 x 13 pan and cut them like fudge. Just WOW! Using E.S.P (Experimentation, Sensibility, and Practicality), we came up with an amazing candy that was an instant hit! Hope this works out for you as well as it did for me. Peanut Butter……

Rho’s Sausage Casserole

I was looking for a new kind of dish to make for a wintry night, and had limited choices as to what to use for my main ingredient. Chicken and pork chops were frozen, but then i remembered that I had purchased some fresh market made sausage, great stuff, only four ingredients, pork, salt, pepper, and fennel! from Brickyard Market earlier that week, and it was still there, unopened, and soon the Taste Of Home casserole book was set aside for my own creation…. 1 lb fresh sausage 1 cup macaroni 1 large carrot 1 cup broccoli 1 cup cauliflower 1 cup shredded cabbage 1/2 cup milk 3 tbsp flour water 1/2 cup sour cream salt, pepper, garlic powder 1/2……
