Hey y'all!

I'm Amanda, chef jimmyj chef jimmyj 's daughter! Most of you have been reading the updates that have been sent to tx smoker tx smoker , and I decided it's time to make an account of my own 😂

I will probably post from time to time, but I'm not one to smoke a lot of food... I'm a baker.(dad, don't you dare say red velvet lol) so if a particular thing comes out well, I might post it.

Can't wait to see all the things y'all make, and take more of the pics of my dad's stuff for you to feast your eyes upon to hopefully recreate yourselves(IF HE HASN'T POSTED THE POT ROAST RECIPE, HOUND HIM.)

Talking about this is making me hungry...

Welcome Young Lady. These guy's like sweet and too few folks bake. They will Hound You to put up something good. And YES Red Velvet is my favorite. Maybe a Welcome Home after a Near Death Experience.😆 I did post the Pot Roast.

 
Welcome aboard Amanda.
Please do post up pics of your baked goodies.
We absolutely do LOVE to see pics of breads, cakes, pies, cookies, cobblers, strudels, muffins, etc.

I'd kill for a freshly baked batch of chocolate chip cookies. :)
 
BTW, interesting thread title.....I'm sure there is a story behind that. Bay leaves go in red beans too!

Its a difference in taste that has become a family joke...

I find Bay Leaf to be a Strongly flavored herb that can easily overpower the more subtle Chicken and Veggie flavor in Chicken Soup. Beef Soup, Ham and Bean? Bay Leaf tastes great! Mandatory in Corned Beef and Cabbage, but Bay Leaf can be too strong in Chicken Soup...JJ
 
Welcome from Iowa! So glad you joined us! And that dad is doing better! Better make sure to keep him in line... or at least kind of anyways! Look forward to some of your goodies!

Welcome Amanda!! Growing up with Chef JJ we know you got it going on for cooking. Most of us not only like but also post a lot of our meals that aren’t smoked. Looking forward to seeing yours!

Welcome, Amanda. Glad you're as spunky as your dad. Thanks for joining and keeping us updated.

I'm NOT a bay leaf guy for the above reason. One solution, I leave them in the cabinet for years for folks who insist on using them.
