American Chopsuey

Tonight was my first experience with Chopsuey. Jim said the taste is authentic for the Glen-Mor Restaurant. I can’t imagine ordering this in a restaurant, but it was easy enough for a weeknight meal.

Servings: 6

Fresh    1 oz. ground salt pork    1 small onion    2 cloves garlic    1-1/4 lbs. lean ground [...]

Lobster Newburg

This recipe took several attempts to get right, the first version with half & half was too rich. The successful version posted here is still a pretty rich dish, but Jim confirms this is the authentic Glen-Mor Restaurant version. Eating the lobster with toast helps to cut the heaviness.

Apple Pie

With an old-fashioned, counter-mounted apple peeler, corer, and slicer, Apple Pie is an easy, crowd-pleasing recipe to throw together. I try to time cooking so the pie goes in the oven just as we sit down for dinner.

Chicken / Turkey Stock

I like to keep homemade stock in the freezer to use instead of store-bought stock, so I always make a big batch of stock after roasting a turkey or chicken.

Servings: 8 cups

Mashed Potatoes

The chef in a cooking class I took a few years ago heated the milk and butter before adding to the potatoes, and I adapted this approach. This method doesn’t impact the taste, but does keep the potatoes warmer for longer.

Servings: 8

Fresh 6 white russet potatoes 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter 1 cup [...]
