The key to giving this amazing coleslaw recipe authentic KFC flavor and texture is by finely chopping the cabbage and carrot into the correct size pieces! You want them to be very small, about double the size of a grain of rice, to be exact.
In a large bowl combine the finely chopped carrot, cabbage and minced onion, mixing it well. In a medium bowl combine the remaining ingredients and beat with a hand mixer or whisk until smooth. Pour the dressing over the top of the shredded cabbage/carrot mixture and stir well to combine.

1 cup of mild cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Monterey Jack Cheese
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/4 to 1/2 pound raw peeled and deveined shrimp
2 plum tomatoes - diced
1 tablespoon red onions - chopped fine
1 teaspoon jalapeno pepper - use more if you like your nachos spicy
2 teaspoons chopped cilantro
2 or 3 slices of fresh jalapeno pepper
2 tablespoons sour cream
40 to 50 nacho chips
If you purchase frozen shrimp thaw shrimp completely before cooking. You can place them in a sieve and simply rinse cold water over them until they thaw. Drop the shrimp into a medium sized pot of boiling water. I personally like to add a little crab boil seasoning to the water to give the shrimp an additional layer of flavor. This is not necessary. Cook shrimp until they turn pink, and remove immediately, this will only take 2 to 4 minutes.Prepare cheese sauce by combining Monterey Jack cheese, Cheddar cheese, and cream cheese in a medium sized pot over a low to medium heat. Add milk to thin the sauce, you can add additional milk if you desire.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, place nacho chips on a heat resistant plate. You will want to heat the chips until they are crisp. Heat chips for approximately 5 to 7 minutes. While the chips are heating prepare the pico de gallo by combining the tomatoes, chopped jalapeno pepper, onion, together.

2 cups russet potatoes (peeled and cubed into 1/2" X 1/2" pieces)
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoon diced green onion (bulb only)
1/4 cup flour
2 cans (6.5 ounce) minced clams (reserve juice)
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
16 ounce half and half
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup bottled clam juice
fresh parsley (minced for garnish)
Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water; cook on medium heat until tender. Remove potatoes from heat, drain and set aside. In 2 quart saucepan on medium-low heat, melt butter. Add diced onions and cook until onions are slightly clear in color. Add flour to butter and stir briskly. Mixture will start to thicken. Add half and half a little at a time while stirring briskly. Mixture will be creamy and will look like thick cream. Place salt, clams and juice from cans, potatoes, bottled clam juice and milk with mixture. On medium-low temperature, bring chowder to a slow boil. Turn temperature down to low and let chowder simmer gently for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
Chowder, hard rolls, fresh whipped butter, and a cozy fire will warm your tummy and your soul.

3-4 boneless chicken breasts, cooked & diced*
Zatarains Blackened Seasoning, to taste*
1 lb Fettuccine noodles
2 jars Prego Homestyle Alfredo sauce
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
 I chose to use 2 packs of the refrigerated Tyson’s Southwestern Style Chicken strips instead to save time.
I found the Zatarains Blackened Seasoning at Wal*Mart
Cook noodles as directed on package. Meanwhile, combine diced chicken and Zatarains blackened seasoning in pot. The Zatarains blackened seasoning has some serious kick to it so start out with a little bit and increase it as you go. Heat chicken over low to medium heat until blackened seasoning coats heated chicken, about 4-5 minutes stirring frequently. Once chicken is heated through, add halved grape tomatoes and stir frequently until they soften, about 2-3 minutes. Add both jars of Alfredo sauce to chicken and tomatoes and continue to heat over low to medium heat. Serve sauce mixture over hot fettuccine noodles with Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

The easiest way to cook a lobster is to boil for 12 minutes in salted water. Add 1 teaspoon salt for every quart of water. Bring water to a rapid boil and plunge lobster -- head first -- into water. Return to a boil and cook for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove lobster and serve with melted butter, lemon wedges, lobster crackers and lots and lots of napkins.

Grind in food processor equal amounts of saltine and Ritz crackers to make 2 cups of cracker meal. Add white pepper, salt and garlic powder. One at a time, moisten a shrimp in cold water, press into the cracker
meal. Moisten again then press into cracker meal again. Place on a tray lined with wax paper and refrigerate one hour. Preheat oil to 350 degrees. If you don't have a thermometer, drop a piece of bread into the oil. If it sizzles and browns within a minute, the oil is ready.Drop a few shrimp at a time into the fat. Fry 30 to 45 seconds on one side then turn and fry another 30 seconds. Remove and drain on paper
towels. Serve with cocktail sauce and lemon wedges. This recipe yields 3 entree or 6 appetizer servings.

1 pound scallops
Flour -- for dusting

3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons Dill Relish
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried onion flakes
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Mix well. Place in fridge at least 2 hours to allow flavors to blend and develop

Serving Size: 4
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
1 pound red potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup half-and-half or milk
4 garlic cloves -- roasted
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground white pepper -- to taste
To really get their flavor, these potatoes need to be baked, not boiled. So bake them in a 350 degree oven for about 20 to 30 minutes. This would be a great time to roast that garlic too. You can either use a traditional roaster, or you may wrap a bulb of garlic in foil and roast that, be sure to coat the bulb with some olive oil before you roast it. Remove potatoes from oven and allow them to cool. You can leave the peelings on or off, I like to leave a few of them on. Chop potatoes, add butter, and half-and-half, and mix with with an electric mixture. Add cloves of garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. You will want to heat these potatoes in a saucepan until they warm up

6 boneless chicken breasts
2 cups pineapple juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup soy Sauce
2 tablespoons sugar

In a bowl combine all ingredients except for chicken. Stir. Using a fork, poke about 5 to 8 sets of holes in each chicken breast. Put chicken in marinade, making sure it is covered in the mixture. Add more pineapple juice if necessary. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Grill. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings

3 cups self-rising flour
1 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons seasoned salt
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 package dry Italian salad dressing mix
1 package onion soup mix - (1 1/2 oz)
1 package spaghetti sauce mix - (1/2 oz)
3 tablespoons sugar
3 cups corn flakes -- crush slightly
2 eggs -- well beaten
1/4 cup cold water
4 pounds chicken -- cut up
Combine first 9 ingredients in large bowl. Put the cornflakes into another bowl. Put eggs and water in a third bowl. Put enough corn oil into a heavy roomy skillet to fill it 1-inch deep. Get it HOT! Grease a 9- by 12- by 2-inch baking pan. Set it aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dip chicken pieces 1 piece at a time as follows: Into dry coating mix. Into egg and water mix. Into corn flakes. Briskly but briefly back into dry mix. Drop into hot oil, skin-side-down and brown 3 to 4 minutes on medium-high. Turn and brown other side of each piece. Don't crowd pieces during frying. Place in prepared pan in single layer, skin-side up. Seal with foil, on 3 sides only, leaving 1 side loose for steam to escape. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes removing foil then to test tenderness of chicken. Allow to bake uncovered 5 minutes longer to crisp the coating. Leftovers refrigerate well up to 4 days. Do not freeze these leftovers. Leftover coating mix (1st 9 ingredients) can be stored at room temperature in covered container up to 2 months. This recipe yields 4 servings.

Vegetable oil -- for frying
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup Crystal Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 dash ground pepper
1 dash garlic powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 chicken wing pieces
=== ON THE SIDE ===
Bleu cheese dressing
Celery sticks
Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. You want just enough oil to cover the wings entirely -- an inch or so deep at least. Combine the butter, hot sauce, ground pepper, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well-blended. Combine the flour, paprika, cayenne powder, and salt in a small bowl. If the wings are frozen, be sure to defrost and dry them. Put the wings in a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over them, coating each wing evenly. Put the wings in the refrigerator 60 to 90 minutes. This will help the breading to stick to the wings when fried. Put all the wings in the hot oil and fry 10 to 15 minutes or until some parts of the wings begin to turn dark brown. Remove from the oil to a paper towel to drain. Don't let them sit too long, because you want to serve them hot. Quickly put the wings in a large bowl. Add the hot sauce and stir,
coating all of the wings evenly. Serve with bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks on the side.
