This is funny. Perhaps it is because I've moved so often, maybe because I like a lot of different ethnic cuisines. But you'd get a lot of different answers if you asked different people. My Mom ALWAYS wants me to make barbecued ratatouille (barbecue meaning grilled by some definitions). One of my friends insists on parm/artichoke dip. Another insists on my version of hummus. There are entire Galena families who want lasagna, and I have a whole group who wants my boozy trifle. Oh, and an entire cadre of freinds who want my negemaki. So I guess my signature is a willingness to cook!

I'll keep that in mind.
The leek is for that AB mussel sauce I saw and bought the stick blender for.

My New York style cheesecake. Everyone that tries it says it's the best they've ever tasted and it took the blue ribbon at the Orange County Fair 3 years ago.
