But for holiday and event planning, I have to go with Martha. I subscribe to her magazine off and on, but always buy the holiday editions. Her party planning skills top the list for me - not just menu ideas and timing it all out, but cook-ahead tips, decorations, you name it.
And then there's Paula. Is her food the healthiest? No. Does she claim that it is? No. But no one does low country comfort food better. I've never been disappointed by one of her recipes. Last year Michael and I took a trip to Savannah, GA and got the opportunity to eat at her restaurant, The Lady & Sons. Check that one off the bucket list! The food was impeccable - it was everything you'd expect and more (including the serving sizes, YIKES!).
-2 pounds ground beef
-2 to 4 c. chicken stock (this is not part of Paula's recipe, but I find that it helps, especially when reheating to have some extra liquid.)
by the way,
happy Mexican food friday!
