I hadn’t eaten homemade salmon croquettes in a hundred years, not since I left home for college. When we were kids, Momma made salmon croquettes for my sister and me nearly every week—it was one of our favorites. (But we called them salmon patties.) Last weekend I made them using the recipe in Momma’s copy of the Keiser’s Kitchen vintage cookbook. And I’m dedicating this recipe to Project STIR, storytelling through international recipes.

Have you heard of a July Cobbler? Until last weekend I hadn’t, but I found this recipe in an old Ozarks Collection Cookbook someone left in our Little Free Library. I LOVE old cookbooks, and I’ve been reading it cover to cover. The cookbook is filled not only with old regional recipes but also snippets about traditions of a “storied region”. And there are sketches throughout, small pencil drawings of barns and farmers and crops growing in fields. This treasure is a great example of one of the many benefits of having a Little Free Library. I never know what will show up next.Continue Reading
Hey, hey it’s been a while since I made a recipe from Keiser’s Kitchen vintage cookbook, but today I present Company Chicken (originally submitted by C.W. Bell). Since I have company staying for a week in my guest quarters, how could any other recipe be more perfect? Unless it was called Tom Sweeney Chicken because Tom Sweeney is the writer-friend holed up writing in our guest quarters.
In case you haven’t been following along, click HERE for my post about the origins of the charming Keiser’s Kitchen cookbook along with a picture of me wearing lots of Aqua Net and a cardboard crown. (Other recipes I’ve tested from the same simple cookbook are linked below along with pictures of my guest quarters that I may or may not occasionally rent out.)
The chicken was falling off the bone tender and flavorful. My company liked it and if he didn’t, I have no doubt he’d let me know. He’s from the Northeast.
Here’s the recipe. So easy!
I loved the addition of almonds.
Serve with Arkansas rice of course!
