LETTERS FROM THE KITCHEN

Welcome to my little space on the world wide web. I'm the Grandma behind Grandma's Kitchen. I have 5 amazing grandbabies (with one more on the way) who I adore. The only thing better than being with my family is cooking in my kitchen. I cook from the heart and put love into everything I do.

Only 16 more shopping days until Christmas. 

Looking for that one of a kind gift for that hard to buy for person. Give the gift of Grandma's Kitchen Pepper Jelly gift packs.

You get 4 mini's of your choice all wrapped up in a fun take out box. All this for only $10.00.

These gift packs make great work party gifts for that all important gift exchange and I guarantee that it will be stolen (that's a good thing).

I will be at Gilbert Farmers Market every Saturday through the end of December. Hours 8am - 12 pm

See you all there.

Grandma's Kitchen will be at the annual
Chandler Chuck Wagon Cook Off

Friday and Saturday, November 9 and 10, 2012
Tumbleweed Ranch at Tumbleweed Park
Free parking



This unique culinary competition combines the sounds, smells, and tastes of the Old West. Teams work from authentic 1880s chuck wagons to cook five courses: bread, beans, meat, potatoes, and dessert. Judges decide winners in each category, as well as best authentic wagon and best overall meal. The Chandler Chuckwagon Cook-off also features entertainment and activities that highlight history, cooking and local foods.
Main food competition is on November 10. Admission to the event is FREE, but chuck wagon meal tickets are $10. Make sure you're in line by 10 am for meal tickets, as supplies are limited and they sell out fast! Free parking during both days.

I am working on some new and exciting new flavors

If I have missed a flavor you want to see just let me know and I will start to work on the formula.

I am also working on a little recipe booklet to accompany our cooking and serving photo card that we give out with each sample.
If you have a good recipe that used our pepper jelly tell me about it (or better yet write it down) and you will be the recipient of a free 4oz jar of your choice of pepper jelly.
