Chef Carla Hall Serving Curls and Turkey Cornbread Stuffing

Turkey Cornbread Stuffing
4 teaspoons canola or other neutral oil
2 medium yellow onions, cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 celery ribs, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
Kosher salt
1 pound fresh turkey sausage, casing removed
Skillet Cornbread cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup Chicken Stock or store-bought unsalted broth
1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil, then add the onions and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden, about 10 minutes. Stir in the poultry seasoning and season with salt. Transfer to a large bowl.
3. Raise the heat to medium-high. Cook the sausage in the same skillet, stirring and breaking up into crumbles with a wooden spoon, until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the vegetables. Add the cornbread and toss until well mixed.
4. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg, cream, and stock until well combined. Pour over the cornbread and stir until well mixed. Form the mixture into 2-inch-diameter patties, each 1/2-inch thick.
5. Wipe out the skillet. Heat over medium-high heat. Add enough of the remaining oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add a few of the patties and cook, turning once, until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a half sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining patties, replenishing the oil and heating it with each batch. Transfer to the oven and bake until heated through, about 15 minutes.
What yall cooking?

Long Hair Gal

This was the length of my hair before it was "trimmed" last December. I usually flat iron my hair once a year in December, but I'm kinda itching to flat iron it again before then. We'll see...

Perms and Color Don't Mix!

Some of us had to learn the hard way (raises hand). I LOVE to color my hair, but I've been taking a break from it, because NOT coloring my hair is actually something new for me. So I know all about color and perms (from back in the day). Even the thickest haired beauty will succumb to the perils of the color/perm combo. It's simply a matter of time.

This beauty decided to chop off all her damaged hair and happens to look gorgeous!

Would you do a big chop again?

Bang Bun Tutorial

It's been awhile. I've been getting used to two children and simply enjoying this first year of my baby girl's life.  I feel like my son was only a baby for 2 weeks, so I was determined to live in the presence for my second child. I've been co-sleeping with her (I know, I know), but I don't feel bad about it. However, it does hold me captive :-) I can't make a move without her fussing. I just started putting her in her crib, so I can get more time for me. She'll be 9 months in a few days.... It' just goes by so quick.

Anywho, I thought this tutorial was super easy and stylish - just what I like.
