Hickory Farms = Holiday Shopping ~ Tradition ~ Charitable Giving



Hickory Farms = Holiday Shopping

For their Christmas gifts, when you’re trying to figure out what to give Aunt Edna, instead of another tea pot, and Cousin Eddie, instead of another dozen golf balls, treat them with a Hickory Farms gift basket full of goodies!  It’s a wonderful thing of “deliciousness,” that’s a sure way to brighten their holiday spirit, and give you pleasure in doing so!     


Hickory Farms = Tradition

You might recall a month ago, when I stated how much we enjoyed the “Toast the Traditions” gift from Hickory Farms.  It was a nostalgic moment:  thinking back to my youth, when we received Hickory Farms' gift baskets, from my parents’ business associates and friends.  Hickory Farms is a special tradition many Americans carry on year after year, as we do also.  

There’s still time to order a gift basket, such as “Toast the Traditions,” for friends, co-workers, clients, employees, or to fill the pantry for your family, from here at Hickory Farms.   For over 60 years, Hickory Farms has been providing holiday shoppers with options that not only present beautifully, but also taste delicious!

Toast the Tradition

Hickory Farms offers a variety of specialty foods and holiday gifts that are perfect for any budget and for everyone on your list this year.  Quality, freshness and value are key traits of Hickory Farms’ holiday treats and gifts.

Hickory Farms Signature Summer Sausage was recently rated the #1 Summer Sausage in America, winning the Masters of Taste Gold Medal for Superior Taste, in 2011.

This year, they are proud to introduce a host of delicious new artisanal products:

Hickory Farms Reserve:  The collection ~ including “Cheddar Flight with Salami” ~ will feature their premium Dry Aged Salami and eight (8) all-natural cheeses handcrafted by award-winning masters.

The Hickory Farms Reserve collection is available in select stores, from the catalogue and online at HickoryFarms.com.   

There’s more ~ Hickory Farms = Charitable Giving:

Hickory Farms has a wonderful philanthropic side also.  Hickory Farms has a partnership with Share Our Strength (SOS) – a leading national nonprofit organization that works to stamp out childhood hunger.  

Share our Strength

With the purchase of the Hickory Farms “Party Planner” gift box, you are making a purchase that gives back:  For each “Party Planner” gift box sold this holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign.  To date, Hickory Farms and its customers have donated $1.9 million.  

Party Planner

It’s an admirable cause worth throwing a party for!  It’s a win-win purchase!

And last, but not least, Hickory Farms has eight products that they offer free shipping to military APO and FPO addresses, including “Home for the Holidays” gift basket and “Beef Hearty Hickory” basket.

In other words, spread the love; make it a tradition for you and your family, and gift Hickory Farms!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…



You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”



Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.


Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!


A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
