SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- This holiday season, will you be serving ham, turkey or …duck?  The matriarch of the Duck Dynasty TV show, Miss Kay, is known for big family meals.

Now, she dishes on family tradition as well as some of her favorite meals, in her new cookbook, Miss Kay's Duck Commander Kitchen.

She joins us now with more on her dynasty and family traditions.

Shannon Miller:  We were just talking about how important it is for family's to keep cooking and keep their family traditions.

Kay: That's right. That is very important.

Shannon:  What are some of your favorite traditions, Miss Kay, that you have in the kitchen?

Kay: At thanksgiving we do the duck and dressing, we do ham with a sauce, we fry turkey, but the funny one is I make about 8 sweet potato pies. And the reason I do is because Jase, Willie, and Jep can eat a whole one. So I have to allow enough for the rest of the family after they take out a whole pie. And I always love to shop as much as cook, so I go to Walmart and buy all my veggies, fruit and all that, because its so fresh. And if it's not fresh, my daughter in-law Lisa, I call her the take back queen of the world. She'll take it back and get a full refund but I got the fresh stuff goin', I've got the good food goin'.

Shannon: And Miss Kay, I've looked through your cookbook, you've got a variety of recipes, what are some of your favorites?

Kay: I love making the pastries, like when i roll out the pie crust, 'cuz...It's just fun, rolling out that dough, playing in that flour. I guess I've been doing that since I was four years old with my grandma. And I'm still doing it, and making as big a mess as I did back then, now. I get flour all over my face, in my hair, everywhere.

Shannon:  That's a sign of a good cook, I would say. You've got your grandchildren and great grandchild to cook with of course, too, right?

Kay: That's exactly right. And my grandchildren love to make the biscuits, they love to make cookies, and put decorations, sprinkles all over them. It's fun with the kids.

Shannon:  Finally, I have to ask you. Every episode of your show ends with you around the dinner table in prayer, thanking everyone for your food and your blessings, so how important is that to you, to keep that tradition alive?

Kay: That's the most important. It's faith, family, and Phil said ducks, I said cooking, but I tell you, we give the Lord praise for everything we have, and I tell my family, if you forget where you came from, then I hope we lose it all, 'cuz I don't want anybody to change. I want it to be exactly like they were when we started the show when we end the show. It just brings us back to being humble, where I hope we stay.

I think the fans that have watched the show from the beginning up until now would agree with you that you guys have been pretty consistant throughout with your character, and I just love the show, Miss Kay. It's so much fun, and it's just so easy to watch and its really a good time to kick back. Thank you so much for your time this morning.
