    This is my very favorite pumpkin (or sweet potato) pie formula. I got it from a very old issue of Gourmet magazine, and tweaked it a bit, substituting bourbon for brandy, adding fresh ginger, upping the spices a bit. My family insists on having this every Thanksgiving. The bourbon is very subtle - you won't notice it's there, but you'll know there's something special about this pie...

    Probably my favorite marinade for pork. I got this recipe from Food & Wine a very long time ago. It's a staple during grilling season.

    These are light, crispy, awesome. I learned to make them in Ireland. The measurements are converted from metric, so I had to do weights. Hope this doesn't cause a problem for too many people, but these cookies are worth it. I like to use them as accompaniments to custards and ice creams, or as a part of a cookie tray.

    This cheesecake is impressive to look at and to eat. The steps are easy but it takes some time to prepare. However, it freezes beautifully for up to a month, so it can be prepared far in advance of your event. I have made this cheesecake many times as a birthday cake. Use a high quality chocolate in this recipe, not chocolate chips or baking chocolate. Try Valrhona, Callabeut or Lindt, which you can get at many grocery stores. Lindt bars come in 3 oz. bars. Also, this cake must bake at the temperature directed or it will be raw in the middle and overdone on the edges.

    Recipe #27832

    Wonderful "company" dish - very impressive. I got this from my executive chef several years ago. He was very talented and I love this dish, especially in the summer time. You need to marinate the chicken for six hours, so make sure you start a day ahead. Serve this with your favorite chardonney.

    Recipe #27795

    Yet another marinade recipe I got from an old issue of Food & Wine. I love this one with chicken and fish. Don't marinate fish too long in this, though - the acid from the lemon juice will start to "cook" it. No more than an hour or so. This marinade is especially nice in the summer when fresh herbs are so abundant.

    This is my best pastry for a sweet tart. It always behaves itself, and it's light and tender and tasty.

    This is my adaptation of my great-grandmothers, who was from Greece. Of course, she made her own phyllo, but I'm not quite that ambitious. I also added the parmesan and mozzarella. I love this dish because it's comfort food to me, but also because, while it takes some time to prepare and an hour to bake, you can make it far ahead and refrigerate or freeze until you need it. I usually make (2) at a time, and freeze 1 1/2 of them after baking for "quick" suppers.

    Another wonderful marinade for meats. I really like this one on lamb, but it is terrific on pork and poultry, too.

    Recipe #27679

    The perfect chocolate dessert; very rich. Must make at least 8 hours prior to serving. Very simple to make - please use the best chocolate you can afford - I use Callabeut, but you could use Lindt, Ghirardelli, Sharffenberger, etc. Will impress your friends...

    This is one of my very favorite "company" dishes. It's worth making for the sauce alone! I got it from Paul Prudhomme a long time ago (one of his books, not him personally!) and tweaked it slightly. Don't let the long list of ingredients intimidate you - it's really simple to do, but plan on beginning at least 2 hours before you want to serve. Serve with long grain rice, and some biscuits or good french bread. The flavors are so bold, a nice fruity red wine would be perfect accompaniment.

    This is another one of my favorite recipes. Borrowed from one of my pastry-chef heros, Emily Luchetti, these lemon custards are about as perfect a custard as they come. Despite the heavy sounding ingredients, they are light and lemony and just wonderful. I usually serve them with a crisp cookie. They don't need any other accompaniment.

    This is really very simple, and will impress anyone you serve it to. It tastes incredible, and it can be made up to a month ahead of time. I once served 1000 servings of this, with both raspberry and chocolate sauce, to a dinner party, and my clients were thrilled. The mousse recipes are from one of my pastry-chef heros, Alice Medrich - she's a genius, and these mousses can be used seperately as cake fillings, too.

    Recipe #26515

    Creme Anglaise is a classic dessert sauce, and will "class up" just about any dessert. It is not hard to make if you pay attention to it, and the rewards are worth it. You can serve this with the chocolate chiffon cake I posted, or with the Apple Charlottes or with just about anything.

    Recipe #26474

    This is one of my favorite fall desserts. It is not a traditional charlotte by any means, but it is wonderful! And very simple to do. It can be made ahead and reheated, then unmolded just prior to service. It can be made with pears. Just make sure the bread you use is firm in texture -

    This cake is from a wonderful pastry chef, Mary Bergin. It's very simple, and it's simply the finest chocolate cake anywhere. When I make chocolate cake, this is the recipe I use. I may vary the accompaniments, but the cake is the same.

    These buttermilk biscuits are authentic. This recipe came from my great-great-grandmother, and was handed down to all the women in my family, and we are all Southern. I am the first one to commit the sin of using a food processor (lol) but I find it works very well. I would put these biscuits up against anyone's - they are perfect in every single way. I hope you all enjoy them.

    I hate meatloaf - DH loves it. I came up with this, modifying a recipe for meatballs, and we both love it. It doesn't have a sauce because it doesn't need it. It's wonderful on it's own. We like to roast carrots with it, and serve it with mashed potatoes and biscuits.

    Recipe #25961

    A wonderful, simple soup, which can easily be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth for the chicken broth. I like to garnish with a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkle of chopped chives or parsley. Beer is an excellent accompaniment to this soup.

    Recipe #25938

    This is a perfect summertime main-course salad. Cool and refreshing, and you can make it up to a day ahead of time, so you don't have to prepare it during the heat of the day. It's also a good buffet dish, or picnic dish. It travels very well. This is one of my favorite summer meals.
