I make a variation of the beer-butt chicken that Katie E described last summer. Instead of beer, I use white wine and fresh herbs - tarragon, thyme, rosemary, whatever I feel like that day. The herbs go under the skin and in the can with the wine, and I use a cleaned soda can.

There's a photo on this page of the chicken on the grill: Featured Recipes & Techniques

I guess if I had to pick something that is my own, it would have to be my parmesan chicken wings which came about when I was incorrectly diagnosed with celiac disease. They have no bread crumbs and are very flavourful. I am always asked for them for catering menus or pot lucks alike.

Growing up it was always "dump cake". You take a 13x9 greased pan, "dump" a large can of cherry pie filling on the bottom, on top of that "dump" a large can of crushed pineapple with most but not all the juice. Over that sprinke (or "dump") a 2 layer DRY cake mix (either white or yellow) and don't worry about lumps. Then dot the top with small pieces of butter or margerine. Walnuts or pecans are optional on top. Then bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. It can be served warm or cold, but I liked it best warm with whipped cream! It is actually a classic dessert that goes by many names like Cherry Crunch Cobbler, but I always knew it as Dump Cake!

I LOVE DUMP CAKE!!!
I don't know why I always forget about that one, I've never made it myself, someone else always does.

What's yours?
Please tell us more about the tart au citron. Sounds fab. Hard to pin down to one sig (dish that defines me). Over the years of cooking, my tastes have changed. I've had some flops & hits. I'm partial to souffles - cheese being one of my faves. Mostly lean toward fresh ingreds - salads seafood etc - not big on breads & dessert (baking cookies etc). I do love cheesecake. On the heavy side, I make a pretty good pastitsio. Anything pasta, gets my creative cooking juices going. My sig dish is still a work in progress.
