Your Signature Dish...

What are one or two things that you cook very well—that dish you are known for or do just right, even if you hate to cook? Or as Grandpa Willie would say: “what do you put your foot all up in and stir with your big toe”?

  1. If I do say so myself, I make one mean chicken pot pie: with real homemade biscuits for the top crust, potatoes, leeks, pearl onions, cranberries, herbs and just a "little somethin', somethin' else!

  2. Corn bread dressing, collard greens, mac and cheese

  3. I make these seven layer bars that require no cooking skills whatsoeever and you don't even bake--you just layer the ingredients and melt the chocolate chips on it....they don't even give me a choice at work, they say "you're bringing those bars!" when we have a potluck.

  5. Guacamole! No cooking, just chopping. But it gets requested all summer...

  6. I have a few seasonal favorites - strawberry rhubarb pie (with a lattice crust) in May, peach cobbler in August. My late partner's greatest food compliment was "You put your toe in it." Could he have been related to Grandpa Willie? But I like his BGFF's compliment even more: "Forgive me for smackin'."

  9. I have two signature dishes 1st is my Lasagna which I make with either ground turkey or beef, and sometimes I throw some chopped broccoli in the mix. (I'd bake it more often if it weren't so expensive to make!) And 2nd is my finger licking good Fried Chicken (sometimes all I have to do is Adobo the chicken) LOL !!

  11. I have to say my favorite dish to make for family and friends would be my sweet potato waffles with a special cinnamon sauce. Yummy!

  13. Stuffed Turkey! ..used to be stuffed chicken but, since I've been to the US, it MUST be turkey, stuffed as a crossover between Italy and US! :)
    I'm so proud of it.

  18. Mostly, people know that I'll bring something new. In November, though, it's dressing. Not stuffing. Not salad dressing! But cornbread dressing, made with homemade cornbread, biscuits, fresh sage, dried sage, black pepper, rich turkey broth, and more. Soft underneath and crisp on top. At church, I bring a quiche a few times a month, but each one is quite different from the others.

  19. I am proud to say I have several. One is my Thai salmon with a chili-garlci sauce (as MK my old roommate would call it "pepper gravy"), seafood salad, kale greens and a few more items.

    @ALM, those garlic crabs sounds delicious and I would love you for life if you can share your recipe. Crab is my favorite food.

  20. My most requested dish is so simple that it's a wonder it's even asked for. Roasted carrots and potatoes. Funny thing I started making it out off being too lazy to go the store and buy food. Recently I love my raw brownies made from nuts.
