@Mine29:  LOL people who “don’t like’ something before they try it annoy me.  Ketchup and mustard is like the simple staple for a hot dog, it’s not like you were putting peanut butter on it!

Peels in mash is what give it flavor IMO, of course you can’t have too much of them their either.

Everyone always begs for my brownies. I have no idea why; they’re made out of boxed brownie mix, but I add a little more oil to make them moister. My sister says she can never quite get them to turn out right.

I always beg her to make collard greens. Put a mess of collards in a pot; add water until just covered; add brown sugar, a ham hock/pork shoulder/whatever, some chopped bacon, and a little hot sauce, then cook for several hours until the collards are literally melt-in-your-mouth tender. Serve with extra hot sauce for a kick and corn bread to soak up the “pot likkor.”

@Mine29:  Every Christmas (and sometimes Thanksgiving) I am asked to make two things: Italian Potato Salad and Russian Tea Cakes (Mexican Wedding Cakes.. they have lots of names).

Italian potato salad: This is a family recipe. I don’t have any exact measurements. I just know how it’s supposed to taste, so I keep tasting until it’s just right!

  1. Boil russet potatoes with skin on until fork passes through with no resistance.
  2. Drain potatoes, let cool. Peel potatoes. Add to large bowl.
  3. Slice celery and green onions. Add to bowl with potatoes.
  4. Add olive oil, salt, pepper and Accent (really just MSG). Mix well.

Russian Tea Cakes/Mexican Wedding Cakes

Here’s the link. I use chopped walnuts, but a lot of people use pecans. They melt in your mouth. So yummy!

@Mine29:  I’ve been making Bobby Flay’s Wild Rice and Goat Cheese Dressing for a couple of years now and it is the first thing to get eaten up (generally people have second or third helpings during dinner and then the leftovers get gobbled up quickly lol).

Recipe here: http://m.foodnetwork.com/recipes/82560

I’m so glad I found this thread– hot corn sounds really good!

I think this year I’m going to try to make stuffing balls.  Just something a little different so not everything comes out in a casserole dish.

Martha Stewart’s Perfect Mac’n’Cheese. Asked for every year by Fiance. More easily done when we fry the turkey (which I wholeheartedly recommend) or bringing to someone else’s T-give. Everyone always raves about it and there’s almost never leftovers.

Oh, my other secret recipe that everyone always asks for are my garlic potatoes. Taken from a random garlic lovers recipe cookbook and altered like crazy, it is essentially peeled cubes of potatoes, olive oil, salt/pepper, garlic, and parsley. So frigging good and my friends are always stokes whenever i make it.
