A sweet squash dish great for a meal on a cold winter day.
A grilled/smoked turkey is juicer and has a far better flavor than an oven-roasted turkey. The turkey will be more tender and juicy than you thought possible. The recommended size for BBQ is 12-14 pounds. The turkey must fit under the lid with about 1-inch space between top of turkey and lid.
This recipe is so quick and easy, and you'll be sure to get many requests for this side dish at future gatherings.
Long list of family and friends that beg for this pie.
This is the best stuffing that I have EVER had. It is 100% homemade (less the store purchased croutons that my Great grandmother made from scratch!!) THIS IS NOT A FAST MADE RECIPE. YOU HAVE TO COMMIT TO THIS ONE!
This Cornish game hen recipe was always made X-Mas Eve along with baked vegetables. After we all had our fill, the family members would each get to open a special gift, and when we were done we put cookies out for Santa and went to bed. Next day we had our home-smoked ham. Really Neat Childhood Memory.
My mother prepared this dish (along with another simple appetizer consisting of chilled cocktail shrimp stuck with festive toothpicks along side a dish of cocktail sauce) every Christmas as far back as I can remember. It is a creamy, savory blend of easy-to-find ingredients that showcases the rich flavor of the clams. Stay with the mentioned brands and you'll never be disappointed. Serve with Ruffles(R) Original potato chips.
For the pecan pie connoisseur, this is the richest flavor you'll find! I think this is the perfect combination of sugars and nuts to produce the ideal flavor and texture. For the pie crust, believe it or not, the refrigerated rolls of pie dough from the store are great for this pie. (Don't buy the pre-molded pie crust!)
A great holiday cake for Christmas, St. Patty's Day, or any special occasion. Easy to make and very sweet! Try adding green sugared jelly candies on bottom around cake for decorating tips! Have fun!
I have made this pumpkin pie many times for friends, and they always ask me for the recipe afterward. One friend tells me this is "just like the pie my grandmother used to make!"
A green bean casserole made using "real" ingredients, other than the canned fried onions.
Black Rice aka Dirty Rice. This is a turkey stuffing most often used in the South in place of traditional bread dressings. The blacker the rice; the better the stuffing. The s e c r e t of black rice is the chicken livers. The darker you cook them the blacker the rice. Also you can add more livers if you want.
A rich, delicious, made-from-scratch pound cake.
This pie recipe won a lot of respect at the holiday table! I guarantee you this is the best pecan pie you will ever dream of -- oh, and watch yourself lick your fingers when you're finished -- umm-umm good!
This coffee cake is perfect for the holidays. Textured like pound cake and topped with nuts, sugar, and cinnamon, this cake is sure to please!
This sausage stuffing will make between 10 and 12 servings, depending on who you're serving. If serving sausage lovers, add the proportionate amount of ingredients to compensate.
My family's recipe for Noodles Riviera. It's like lasagna with sour cream. You can substitute ground turkey in place of ground beef if you like.
An easy, savory meal that anyone can make.
