    Julia Child's recipe from 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking.' This makes a wonderful, moist, juicy bird. I think it's the turning technique while roasting that does it. It may sound like a lot of work, but it really isn't much more than roasting a bird any other way. The sauce reduction is a LOT easier than any gravy, and is out of this world! In the book, she suggests serving this with green beans or peas (buttered, of course! this IS French cooking!) and sauted, roasted, fried, or souffleed potatoes, or potato crepes. I have also posted the recipe for brown chicken stock, which can quite easily be simmering away as you cook the bird (you don't need the stock until the very end). Using the homemade stock makes a huge difference in the flavour, but it can be substituted, I suppose.

    Recipe #57199

    For me, this is the ultimate in comfort foods from my childhood. :) I fix this often, usually for lunch, accompanied with a bowl of soup. (LJ entry Monday, January 28th, 2002.)

    Recipe #27443

    My family would crowd into the kitchen to get their first forkfull of Mom's potato salad. It's that good! This potato salad is not at all sweet - something which was important for our family. Let it sit in the fridge as long as you can before serving... it's even better the next day!

    Recipe #27065

    An easy recipe for "yellow rice." This is my wife's favorite rice that I make for our dinners.

    Recipe #27442

    About once a year I used to call Mom and ask her yet again for the baked macaroni and cheese recipe she always made me when I was little. It's not anything like the ultra-cheesy stuff most people call mac & cheese, but I love it anyhow. Since I'm eating lowcarb these days, here's what I eat instead, in a pasta-substitute version...

    Recipe #27896

    From my Family Recipe Box, this was the first recipe I ever created on my own, when I was a teenager.

    Recipe #28039

    This salad is made in Finland in two ways: either with herring (rosolli) or without (punajuurisalaatti). It's my favorite beet salad, and although I've never made it including the herring I'm sure it would be tasty that way, too! Based on a recipe from "The Finnish Cookbook" by Beatrice A. Ojakangas. First prepared in our household by my husband Mike. :)

    Recipe #28754

    These will get gobbled down as fast as you can put them out on a plate. :) At first I thought it would be silly for me to enter my recipe in for them, because it's so simple. But like my Mom's tartar sauce recipe which you can find here, my family likes deviled eggs which are not at all sweet. People always rave about them when I make them this way, so I think it's worth sharing the recipe. Picnic storing and serving tip: fit two filled halves together, wrap in waxed paper or other kitchen wrap, and twist the ends!

    Recipe #31179

    This afternoon I was trying to decide what to make for dinner, and suddenly I found myself craving good old porcupine meatballs. But I couldn't make plain meatballs, no sir! Here's the recipe I made up, and it came out wonderfully well. An adult update of one of our childhood favorites. Very tasty!
