Most of the people I know don't even know how to turn on a stove, so when I fix almost any meal they don't ask for the reipe, but they ask me to fix it again.

My family usually request my "Soy Salmon" recipe.
My neighbor request my "Tater Tot Casserole"
My coworkers have requested my cucumber dip.

Other than that I get request for all kinds of dishes
Homemade angel food cake
Tex Mex Dip
Chocolate Chip Cookies
vegetable salad
lobster mousse
Chicken Puffs
and more

We made her a plate and sat it on the coffee table, per her request opened another bottle of wine and cleaned up and quietly went home. The next day she would call each of us and ask if she had a good time, I told her she did the best dying scene ever, she did herself proud. A month later the same was repeated. We all had a good time, and we threatened to tape her but under penalty of not being invited to return, we never did.

Thanks for asking chez suz, of course I share. I take a chicken breast and pound 1/4 inch thick, dip in buttermilk, then a mixture of fresh fine breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, a tiny pinch of cayenne, a little flour, hungarian paprika and lots of parmasean reggiano. I double dip it (back into buttermilk and then the crumb mixture). I preheat a cast iron skillet in the oven and add evoo and butter and place the chicken breast in it, and bake until crunchy and not sticking to the pan, I flip it over just to crunch the other side. Normally I prefer fresh garlic and onions, but I find that the powder works better for this.
