My sons say it's my mashed potatoes, too!

Expat, there is. Aubergine. Don't call it eggplant, peel it, and no one will be the wiser (everyone loves my grilled ratatouille. they can guess what is in it! haha!).

hahaha...he's living with his girlfriend now, in a small apartment over her mom's home. I sent her mom my zucchini bread and she asked for the recipe. I obliged. My son told me I should have given her the mashed potato recipe. I told him I'm taking that to my urn...it's the only way I'm convinced he'll visit !
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Right now these might be at the top of the list.

Borscht, Paska Easter bread, Ukrainian nut rolls, Ukrainian cabbage rolls cooked in a good home made chicken broth rather than tomato juice, Sparta Tort, Ukrainian Honey cake (or call it bread).

i guess that the dish i'm most often asked to cook/bring to an event is my sunday gravy. i make it every year for my dept's christmas party, and have gotten dozens of inquiries into how i make it.

it 's meatballs (mixed ground beef and pork) and hot and sweet italian sausage in a chunky garden style tomato sauce.

when i make it for my family, i add boneless pork rib ends, and sometimes brasciole.

During the summer it's my beer butt smoked chicken that seems to be a favorite. I guess I am most known for my Thanksgiving dinner though. Last year I cut back on what I cooked - this year I think I'm going to do what I want.......which means even more than the normal way too much food.

It's not really a "dish" but my rolls are the most requested for outings.

I've always been known for my pistacio poundcake, Balsamic drummetts,
spinach dip in bread bowl for BBQ's, and my sweeties request everytime he comes home is chocolate chip walnut cookies! Nice, thick and chewy!

OMG---those look so savoury and say "Eat me now!" Any chance that you'd have time to post the recipe?

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
