This pie is absolutely fabulous. When I make it to sell at my market it flies off the table! My Mother found it an old community cookbook. I prefer to make it with full fat cheese and mayo, but I wanted to give the option for those who like low fat items.
This is great to use as your salad dressing, or as a salad topping with additional dressing. You can also serve this as a side dish, especially when tomatoes are plentiful in the summer months! If you prepare this during a "dry tomato season", plum tomatoes are a good substitute. This recipe came from Southern Living. Please note: Cooking time is marinating time!
This is a classic Southern recipe for Easter or Christmas. The sweetness of the honey and molasses is cut by the bourbon and orange juice, making for a perfect glaze. Once the ham is cool and chilled, be sure to remove the fat from the drippings to save and serve with the leftovers...that is one of the best parts of the recipe!
This is a delicious and quick recipe using pre-cooked chicken. Great for a weeknight dinner. Use your own pre-cooked chicken, or buy a deli-roasted chicken...both yield about 3 cups of cooked chicken. Featured in Southern Living's 40 Years of Our Best Recipes cookbook as a "Quick & Easy" recipe. From some of the reviews, I think it isn't as quick and easy as they would like :).
This spicy fish chowder usually is concocted aboard fishing boats from the days catch in Portugal. Many times the ingredients vary according to what the day's catch was. This chowder is traditionally served over bread triangles. Posted for ZWT!
Gazpacho originated in Andalusia, the southern section of Spain. For the best flavor, you must be sure to use very ripe tomatoes, otherwise the taste falls flat. This recipe is from the Antigua Casa Sobrino de Botin in Madrid, and is in A Treasury of Great Recipes by Mary and Vincent Price. Prep time includes 1 hour of soaking, Cook time is chill time.

Excellent meal for the summer, since there is no cooking involved and it is cool. Any thick, firm white fish can be used. The citrus juice cooks the fish. You can also add shrimp or scallops and substitute for part of the fish. This is adapted from "A Treasury of Great Recipes" by Mary and Vincent Price. Cooking time is the marinating time in the refrigerator. Letting it sit in the vegetable mixture overnight is not included. Posted for ZWT5.
