I was watching the food channel and they have this show called 'Calling all cooks' and it about the show folks going around to regular folks houses and letting 'aunt mable who is famous for her apple pie' cook her apple pie. Or Hubert who is famous for his BBQ sauce , make a batch and have a meal at the end of his segment. All are 'famous' for something special in the kitchen.
I asked Hubby what food am I famous for? He came up with a blank. This bothers me somehow.. LOL So to my question: Are you famous for something you cook? cookies? pies? casseroles? something the kids ask for when they come home?

Well, in my house, I am always being pestered to make my Chik-Fil-A style nuggets. Pretty easy--- a milk wash with some spices, a flour dredge with some spices, and peanut oil, and you're set. :) Either that, or the no-bake double decker pumpkin pie cheesecake I haul out every Thanksgiving and Christmas. :) But that's a cheat also- got the recipe out of some flier somewhere. :) :) :)

My folks would probably say my gooseberry pie. My husband would tell you my cowboy brownies, mostly cause he could eat the whole pan himself and refuses to share, lol. Speaking of which he would probably appreciate a pan of those, been months since I've made any.

I am famous for my cheesecakes. I won the Nestle Toll Houses National Baking Contest in 2001 and won the grand prize for my Triple Chip Chessecake. Take a look at it with the link below. I love to cook and bake! It is my passion!

My potato salad is expected to chow up with me at every big family get together, on both sides of the family! :)

The ones my family request and claim no one else can make "cause it just does not taste right" are:

potato salad
cornbread dressing
corn casserole

I am passing my recipes to my daughter and son and duaghter in law. Tastes good to me when they do it. (except for the potato salad)

Corn Casserole?????!!!! I have to laugh! I am famous for my corn casserole (but wish I wasn't!)

One famous Christmas rushing from house to house, I got the brilliant idea of dragging the ingredients with me, so while I was visiting my family, I could cook at their house and take my hot dish with me to the next house (my in-laws).

I was cheating, and using Jiffy corn bread mix...I am frantically dumping stuff in the bowl, mix, mix, mix...when my mother says "WHAT'S IN THAT CORNBREAD??!!" We stop, look, pick out a chunk of unknown something from the batter and taste it (we are brave). It was a BLUEBERRY!

In my haste, I had grabbed the blueberry muffin mix instead of the cornbread. I made it anyway and still get teased about it! Everyone who tasted it, got a funny look and went "hmmmm, how interesting" (my in-laws are polite!) We still laugh!

Blueberry corn casserole!

I gotta admire your determination;
you just kept right on and made it
and served it!!

LOL!!!! Reminds me of the Thanksgiving when I pulled my beautiful turkey out of the oven and had it sitting, all pretty and butter-sage basted to a turn, on my counter. Well, I opened the cabinet above it to grab the cinnamon for the sweet potatoes and- yep, you guessed it- that cinnamon spewed all over the turkey!!! Had a very "Morocco" Thanksgiving that year!!!! LOL!!!!

Hi Tinker,

I guess it'd have to be my "stick-to-your-ribs" beefstew & biscuits, or maybe my beans & ham(with potatoes cooked in 'em) & scratch cornbread.

Or maybe it'd be the home-made chili with the same cornbread.
Comfort foods, at my house. All my Family loves 'em.
'Til Later........

Eating it!!!

Nothing. I do a fair job of outside cooking on the grill. But, nearly everyone I know can do that. the key is to not overcook.

Take my wife, Nancy, now, there's a cook. She makes the best potato salad and cole slaw that I've ever tasted.

On his birthday, Nancy makes for our youngest son, a potato salad cake. Actually, it just potato salad made to look like a cake, without the candles.

She's a pinch of this and a pinch of that kinda cook. She has measuring spoons but rarely uses them. She's pinched here and pinched there until I stopped pinching an inch long ago. Now, I dare not say how many inches I can pinch......gfp
