Cook the Book: 'Simple Fresh Southern'

Corn King - as I branded it as a 4 yr old when I couldn't say casserole: 1 stick melted butter, 1 8 oz. container sour cream, 1 can creamed corn, 1 can drained whole kernel corn, 1 box Jiffy corn bread mix.


Cook the Book: 'How to Roast a Lamb'

Lamb chops, broiled, with sea salt and course black pepper.

Or the classic tankwatkins mentioned above, though basting with worchestershire throughout. Amazing!

3 lbs of Whole Raw Almonds

I somehow end up gifted with food each time I visit my family. Sometimes it's delicious, crumbly kourambiedes (butter cookies) from my yia yia (g-ma) in old peanut butter jars. Other times it's smooth, creamy Greek feta floating in brine in old pickle jars. This time it was a 3 lb bag of Kirkland raw almonds from Costco.

I have some ideas - candied almonds, curried almonds, monster trail mix. But beyond the basics, I'm stumped.

Any idea would be greatly appreciated. I'm adventurous, enjoy lots of cuisine. And I can figure my way around a kitchen.
