What is your "Signature Dish?"

I did a search here and found a very old thread with the same title started in 2008. It made for some very interesting reading, I must say. I havn't seen many of those folks since I've been here, and there are a ton of new members who I hope will contribute to a new thread with the same question. Besides, some of the oldtimers here might have a new "Signature Dish" by this time!!

So how bout it?? What do you cook that puffs up that cooking ego, like nothing else? Recipe's or links, are encouraged, but not required.

Just to get started, I think my signature dish would be my "Shortcut Chili Verde".......not fancy, but easy, and my most requested original recipe.

If you ask my brother he'd say my oven fried chicken. His opinion counts big time. Everyone else loves when I make kahlua pork in the oven with rice. Thats the number one requested dish from me.

I'm asked for my raviolli and gravy , I don't make to often any more mad cow brought the filling to a crashing halt, simply because we always use part of the cow that brought many a gag from those who didn't grow up eating ravioli. So that recipe is enfolded into an old cook book waiting for fear to subside. Another recipe is loved and safe and is asked for ovten. It's my fried chicken, which is fried of course on the top of the stove, then set on large cookie sheets that have been dotted with chunks of butter, springs of fresh rosemary, sprinkled with salt,garlic powder, as well as onion powder, and then we sprinkle dry white wine over the chicken,Then we finish it off in the oven. I have friends who ask for pasta gavy for lasagna, pasta, even rice. salads just simple things. I love to make focaccia, simple breads...But cakes or pies...Ask Laurie or Alix and you are sure to get the best.

Probably my chocolate cake - I use cocoa for the batter and real chocolate for the topping (half dark, half milk). But by now I can't stand the sight of it! Hahaha!

Layered potato casserolle with black and green olives, jalapenos, cheese, S & P, garlic and EVOO. Also, oreo mudslide dessert that is absurdly easy to make.
