toasted bread stuffing with raisins, celery, onions, carrots, and apples

Stuffing

I know there's a few debates about stuffing... Is it stuffing, or is it dressing? Do you cook it inside the turkey, or in the oven? Do you use bread or cornbread? These are just a few of the many debates about "stuffing". As for me, I am old school and use bread stuffing inside the turkey the way my Momma always made it. Everyone loves it and if I don't stuff my turkey I'm…... view full recipe

Cabbage salad with green cabbage, orange carrots, and spices in a white creamy sauce

Brian’s Coleslaw

My husband LOVES coleslaw, and he has become quite the food critic over the years. I guess I've spoiled him! He says often times coleslaw can be either too sweet, not wet enough, mush, no flavor, or whatever he can find to come up with. So we scoured recipes in cookbooks and over the internet and tried out many of them. He found one that was "ok, but not quite there yet", so after a…... view full recipe

Light and Fluffy Cream with fresh red strawberries with green leaves

Devonshire Cream

This is really a "Mock" Devonsire Cream since the cream itself doesn't come from Devon, England. But it's just as delicious, and much easier and quicker to make than Clotted Cream. It literally takes less than 5 minutes to make. I serve it with scones, and I'll use it just as I do whipped cream sometimes, try it with apple pie, you'll be hooked! The tang from the sour cream gives it a special flavor…... view full recipe

Jar with lemon curd next to whole and cut lemons on a blue and white tea towel

Lemon Curd

Lemon Curd is a wonderfully delicious, sweet and tart treat that has a myriad of uses. I use it primarily to go with Scones. But I also use it fill in tart shells, as a layer in between layers of cake, on top of Strawberry Shortcake, in mini puff pastry shells topped with a dollop of Devonshire Cream, and so much more. Just be creative. Whatever might sound good with a sweet and sour lemon…... view full recipe

Black fondue pot with melted cheese and dipped bread with wine and more bread and cheese in the background

Cheese Fondue

Who doesn't love Fondue?! We do! I have tried numerous fondue recipes over the years and this by far has been our favorite cheese fondue recipe. And there is so much more to dip in this rich cheese sauce other than a good bread. Try veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus and carrot slices, for example. Freshly sliced apples and pears, along with some grapes are also an excellent accompaniment to this delicious cheese sauce.…... view full recipe

Fresh pineapple cut into slices and wedges

Pineapple Casserole

I received this recipe from a fellow innkeeper a number of years ago when they brought it to a potluck I was hosting at the Lodge. It was such a huge hit that several of us asked for the recipe. It is an excellent accompaniment to ham and I have been making it every time I make ham ever since, and several of my family members have also asked for the recipe. From the ingredients…... view full recipe
