Welcome to my recipe blog. I created this blog so I could share my high calorie recipes. My daughter, Rachel, has CF and I'm always looking for recipes loaded with calories. I hope you see a recipe you'll want to try. Happy browsing.

Overnight Texas Brisket for 20

Here's another good one from the CF cookbook, "Kids Crave The Darndest Things (Grown-ups Too)".  I made it last night and could hardly wait to taste it this morning.  Then after tasting it, I couldn't get it posted fast enough.  Hope you enjoy.

Instead of salt and pepper, I used Paula Deen's house seasoning.  I plan on serving my brisket in a plate lunch with sides such as potato salad, baked beans, green beans, cornbread, etc. (southern style).  Also, cookbook says it "freezes well" - good thing because it's a ton of meat. 

isn't it pretty?

it's so tender and juicy
