Stone Soup

Follow this simple recipe, the difference is, the food is bound with a stone.  Just as Dolly did as child, her mother sent all the children out to find a stone and scrub it good.  One stone was picked from the child who needed the most attention that day to put in the pan.  This is a soup made with love.

Dollywood Cinnamon Bread

Making this bread will help you feel like you’re in Dollywood itself, as the recipe has been released for the signature dish that Dolly makes.  The smell of making this bread, made at her own theme park, will transport you to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee itself.
