From the Tennessee Hometown Cookbook!
Here are a couple of recipes from my Tennessee Hometown Cookbook. All of these recipes are of the quick and easy variety but packed with Volunteer State flavor.... well, without the whiskey!

Mnnn, maybe some Jack Daniel's Blackberry Jam would be a nice addition. I'll get back to you with that recipe. Until then, "See ya at the dinner table!" - Kent
