Happy Monday! It is cold and raining hard here in Nashville and on days like today, I want something hot and hearty. I couldn’t get this dish out of my mind! Perfect rainy, cold Monday recipe. Here’s what I wrote last year when I first shared this:
If you don’t know Linda Davis’s voice from national jingles for Kentucky Fried Chicken and Dr. Pepper or from her 8 albums with 15 charted singles, you would definitely recognize it from her duet with Reba McEntire on the number one hit song, Does He Love You. Linda won a Grammy for that performance and she’s played sold out shows with Garth Brooks, George Strait and Kenny Rogers to name a few. She also helps up & coming entertainers find their own comfort on the stage with a consulting firm she started called Stage Performance 101. Still, she’d probably say her proudest accomplishment is being a mother to two beautiful girls—one being Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum. You’d be hard pressed to find a sweeter, more genuine person than Linda.
Now, it all that isn’t enough, she’s got skill in the kitchen too! I had so much fun being in her home and cooking up a family favorite, Chicken Pot Pie. Her recipe is now THE preferred pot pie recipe at the Kelley house. It’s the definition of hearty, delicious, comfort food and it’s sure to satisfy! Check out www.lindadavis.com for her touring schedule and more about SP101. Thank you, Linda 🙂
