Good morning I just made y’all fried chicken and man was it good!
Connie Rae Dean
I am really enjoying the videos and learning how to make some different meals. I Live in Tasmania, an island state off the bottom of Australia but I was raised in the UK so all these recipes are new and exciting to me! I have a dear friend lives in Arkansas, so I'm hoping to boast of all the Southern goodies I will make! It's high summer, so too hot to have the oven on much, but as son as it cools down a bit I'll be cooking...

Hi Tammy and Chris
Just started watching you a few weeks ago and I love watching you. I haven’t been much on cooking at home due to work hours and difference in my husband and my schedules. Now that I found you on YouTube I don’t think we’ve eaten out maybe 3-4 times total in the past few weeks. My husband says thanks for that. I finally learned how to make homemade biscuits after so many years of trying. I always watched my mamma make them but I could never get it right, and she would do all from scratch. I am using the biscuit mix now and they are turning out perfect every time. I’ll give the homemade from scratch method a try again later now that I know what the dough should feel like and all that stuff. 
So anyway, keep making videos and I’m gonna keep watching. Thanks Tammy for getting me back in the kitchen.

I made your hoe cake recipe for dinner and it was absolutely amazing! We loved it. I will make it a lot in the future I’m sure. Thanks for all your great cooking lessons. I’m really learning a lot. I’m going to try all your recipes little by little.

I'm from Michigan, but family roots in Kentucky bind my heart to yours. Love your cooking and Bible study videos! Thanks for the joy you bring to my life.
Melinda Nabring
I just made your Italian cream cake while watching you make one. I forgot to save toasted coconut and pecans for top but it looks and smells delicious.
Sandie Hendrix
I love listening to Tammy because she reminds me so much of a friend of mine that I don’t see often enough. Also, her family stories bring back memories on my sweet Grandmother’s farm where I spent most of my childhood. She was born in 1892 and she could grow, and cook anything. She never used a recipe. She made pies everyday for desert. We called her Mama, because our mom was Mother. I wish I could have her back for a few months to answer...

I made my biscuits with the butter crisco and thank you so much for helping me they are fluffy and delicious first time using all purpose flour.
