What would you bring?

 this could be interesting and fun! my question...you have the money to spend for all the ingredients and the spare time to make the dish , what would you bring to a  meeting with other folks that use this site....something that is 'YOURS', or you MADE it yours? you, of course, would be beamed to  the location by scotty from star trek. you can only make 1 thing. anything goes....but you gotta bring your signature dish, the one thing you HAVE to make when the family gathers! the thing they beg for at every holiday.  i would have to make my moose gater taters. oh, remember no one is on a diet  :)
Nov. 26, 2011 11:10 am
I would make you all some yummy funnel cakes with a lovely dusting of powdered sugar...cause you're all so sweet~
Nov. 26, 2011 11:13 am
Rib Eye Steak, With Mushrooms And Onions, Mashed Potatoes And Gravy With Broccoli
Nov. 26, 2011 11:22 am
hi cooking! you trying to fatten up my wife...:), you would have to bring 2 batches, that cooking-challenged wife of mine would run off with a whole pan of 'em! it is getting cold here, i guess i wouldn't try and stop her theft...i need a big bedhog in winter!
Nov. 26, 2011 11:23 am
hi king! now we are barking! forget the taters..i got 'em covered! but you had me at rib-eye!
Nov. 26, 2011 11:57 am
I would bring one of our famous smoked prime rib roasts.
Nov. 26, 2011 12:01 pm
hi witchy! we are coming to see ya this coming fall! gonna be great, august i believe. claire's great-aunt will be 103. smoked prime rib, i WILL run out the door with that!
Nov. 26, 2011 12:06 pm
I'll bring a cheesecake, maybe the Bailey's one I always make for St. Patrick's Day?
Nov. 26, 2011 12:12 pm
I would bring the Bacardi's Rum Cake I've made for years. You can either eat it as cake or suck the rum out through a straw! JK. : )
Nov. 26, 2011 1:02 pm
ummmm, I think I would bring a big blackberry cobbler like my granny used to make!
Nov. 26, 2011 1:20 pm
Hey Gary!! I'd have to bring my husband's favorite - beef tenderloin - the whole tenderloin - - and garlic mashed potatoes - red potatoes with the skins, real butter, heavy cream, and chopped garlic. Oh Yummo!!! . . . by the way, are you back in your house?
Nov. 26, 2011 1:32 pm
Hmmm, I can't make up my mind. Either something we have BBQed because we are getting pretty darn good at that or the recipe I created for Ryan for his going away party. Or the heck with it since I miss the kid like crazy it would have to be his dip :) Guess the DH could bring the BBQ if he came too!
Nov. 26, 2011 1:51 pm
Living in the Southwest- Pueblo, Colorado--everyone in my neck of the woods likes me to bring Green Chili made with Pueblo chilies and pork --simmered until the pork is melt in your mouth tender. Chili served over chicken enchiladas, spanish rice-- refry beans without the refry-- homemade flour tortillas. It is an acquired taste. Once you taste it there is no going back.
Nov. 26, 2011 1:54 pm
Hi motherann! and oh yes, a bailesy cheesecake is certainly called for!
Nov. 26, 2011 1:55 pm
hi linnie! rum cake...now i'm barking!
Nov. 26, 2011 1:58 pm
hi granny! ok, my arms are getting full from running out the door with that. brings back memories of picking fresh blasberries and mom making a cobbler on the spot. boy, i sure miss 'em!
Nov. 26, 2011 2:00 pm
hi luv! yes, we are back in the house FINALLY, but not everything is completed. more details...but soon i hope all will be done. a tenderloin....yep that's a keeper!
Nov. 26, 2011 2:02 pm
hi cat! we certainly need some dip. what type? bar b que...oh yeah, tell him if wants directions he BETTER bring bar bque!
Nov. 26, 2011 2:04 pm
hi lelia! yep, i'm gonna need a basket to get this stuff out to my truck! sounds excellent!
Nov. 26, 2011 2:22 pm
Hey, just like my family --they bring their own storage containers and load up. I'm looking in my fridge-for Thanksgiving turkey but my family took it all. Next year I'm going to hide some before they get here.
Nov. 26, 2011 3:37 pm
yep lela, you certainly gotta hide the GOOD stuff for left-overs after the free-loaders leave! you cook tooo good which is a compliment and a curse.
Nov. 26, 2011 3:38 pm
Gotta be pound cake! I'm bringing two... one cream cheese pound cake and one chocolate pound cake! nothing represents me as much as pound cake... Southern tradition!
Nov. 26, 2011 3:51 pm
hi terry! and believe me, you will NOT leave with either!
Nov. 26, 2011 6:25 pm
Now... I know I'm in!
Nov. 26, 2011 7:02 pm
How about some pineapple cake? I could bake it in your swanky new kitchen! Are you no longer kitchen challenged? Christened the stove with champagne (or perhaps cheap beer)?
Nov. 26, 2011 7:07 pm
I would bring my Reubin and fixings along with a case (or three) of Tenants Import.
Nov. 26, 2011 10:09 pm
My most requested dishes are lobster newburg over puff pastry or New Orleans barbecued shrimp, but since this is imaginary, I will bring both!
Nov. 26, 2011 11:36 pm
your buffet table looks devine. I will add several types of perogies with creamed dill and swiss chard gravy, cabbage rolls and a grilled, stuffed moose tenderloin. I am also bring a pot of borscht, but Gary you can't have any-no matter how you despise beets, tell most men they can't have something and they want it, so no borscht for you, Claire might like to try some.
Nov. 27, 2011 6:51 am
I popped back on to read what all is coming and I'll be there shortly! Yummy!
Nov. 27, 2011 8:22 am
My most requested dish is my pot roast and vegetables cooked in an oven bag. I plan to make it with mashed potatoes for Christmas dinner, easy to make, can assemble day ahead, economical, cn feed a crowd,no last minute rushes, never met a person who did not love it. I will post a blog with the recipe.
Nov. 27, 2011 9:03 am
Well, I'll be bringing Cupcakes.... of course!!! What else would I bring? And, because we just finished up with TG, these are the ones I'd bring. ***** http://allrecipes.com/personalrecipe/62540862/candyd-sweet-potato-cupcakes-with-brown-sugar-icing/detail.aspx *****
Nov. 27, 2011 12:39 pm
LOLOL! Now the dip is kind of spicy but if you take a look at it you'll see why I made it:)It has cheese, bacon and jalapenos so it can't be bad right? http://allrecipes.com/personalrecipe/62956747/ryans-reverse-popper-dip/detail.aspx
And yes sir, we know the difference between grilling and barbeque :)(: We might have to bring our own smoking wood though just to give it an authentic MO taste! LOLOL!
Nov. 27, 2011 1:52 pm
I make a seafood casserole that is a cross between Lobster Thermidore and Seafood Newburg over wild rice with steamed asparagus. Very rich and decadent. Did you get to cook for Thanksgiving in the new kitchen?
Nov. 27, 2011 5:59 pm
hi mags! yep we are home, but kitchen is NOT complete yet...dang it! you better bring 2, claire will steal one herself! i'd probably try and sneak off with the other.
Nov. 27, 2011 6:01 pm
hi mike! i hope you are doing well! yep, bring some beer and RUEBENS...lawdy mercy, i would arm-wrestle a gorilla for a good reuben!
Nov. 27, 2011 6:03 pm
hi hazel! you would NOT leave with either, bring a plastic dish since they will disappear asap!
Nov. 27, 2011 6:06 pm

Nov. 28, 2011 5:49 am
Looks like you need an appy! I have an artichoke dip (like there are a million of them!!) that vanishes! Even on girls night!!
Nov. 28, 2011 7:20 am
Fun blog! I am always asked on the holidays to make steak and guinness pie and a homemade coconut cake (with fresh coconut, of course!). Being a Southern cook, I have lots of ideas though!
Nov. 28, 2011 10:02 am
Hehehe.. there's hardly any dessert.. what good is any meal, however tasty, without dessert to finish up with? And with such a variety of food, we need a just as impressive variety of dessert.. :) so I'll bring Watallapan... A specialty of Srilankan Moors (which I am).. Even Srilankans of other races dont get it right.. its a steamed pudding made of pure kithul jaggery, coconut milk, cardamoms and eggs.. once steamed it forms a creamy custard consitency on top and a jaggery syrup underneath.. :D
Nov. 28, 2011 11:08 am
HI mick! you better bring an appy...sounds great!
Nov. 28, 2011 11:26 am
hi sweetiepie! boy the coconut cake flooded me of memories of my late aunt...she made the BEST!
Nov. 28, 2011 11:45 am
hi cuppy! better bring 2 of those, one for us to confiscate, the other to share. sounds magnificent!
Nov. 28, 2011 1:16 pm
Only one thing?? Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake. or the richest Chocolate Pie ever. Or Jambalaya Pasta...or my curry chicken salad. Sorry...one thing is hard to choose!!!
Nov. 28, 2011 2:04 pm
hi rae! oh ok, bring 2 of everything!! it all sounds GREAT!
Nov. 28, 2011 2:13 pm
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Apple-Crisp-Cups/Detail.aspx?prop31=1 a little late to the party, but i would be fired it these weren't on my table at christmas,or someone's birthday, or just any old gathering! oh, and my hot sausage lasagna!!!
Nov. 28, 2011 2:23 pm
hi weeble! apple crisps? oh, yeah i'm in there! hot sausage lasagna...woo i am a wuss, but willing to shed a tear when necessary!
Nov. 28, 2011 3:06 pm
I have to make sourdough hotcakes. I am the keeper of the sourdough starter that is well over a century old now, and the recipe for the hotcakes was passed down to me. The paper is yellowed and curling around the edges and is preserved in vinyl. I know it by heart having received it from my departed mother-in-law as a new bride. It is the one thing that is uniquely mine so I'd fix a big batch and send you all home with extra starter so you could build your own family tradition.
Nov. 28, 2011 3:17 pm
We need veggies! I would bring wilted collard greens slow cooked with a bit of sugar, finely chopped onions, and some balsamic vinegar.
Nov. 28, 2011 4:45 pm
Put me down for some amazing New Zealand Salmon (no, not lamb!). I caught 2 last week! Smoked some and grilled the rest -- OMG! SO GOOD!
Nov. 28, 2011 7:43 pm
Hi kat! yes, believe me your recipe would go to the front of the line!! i love it...what a GREAT tradition! yours would be so welcome!
Nov. 29, 2011 5:57 am
Well somebody needs to bring the Alligator Chili so it might as well be me.
Nov. 29, 2011 8:58 am
Hi doug! of course we NEED chili!
Nov. 29, 2011 10:22 am
I think we need a few more sides so I will bring my personal recipe for baked beans. They are one of my most requested recipes.
Nov. 29, 2011 1:33 pm
Nolidi I am always asked to bring the broccoli cheese casserole, wouldn't be a feast without it!
Nov. 29, 2011 2:57 pm
torn between my award winning cheesecake eclairs with dark chocolate fudge sauce and my roasted sweet potatoes with spicy maple glaze... guess it would depend on how long i have to make things before beamed up lol!
Nov. 29, 2011 3:38 pm
It would have to be something English, may be a bakewell tart, Victoria sponge cake or something else entirely!
Nov. 29, 2011 4:27 pm
hi mi! bring the beans! please...the wife will suffer later!
Nov. 29, 2011 4:28 pm

Nov. 30, 2011 6:41 am

Nov. 30, 2011 6:46 am

Dec. 2, 2011 7:50 am
I'm thinking I'd live up to my name and bring a big pot of my delicious Chicken Noodle Soup.
Dec. 2, 2011 8:29 am
a lemon meringue pie that is so wonderful. got the recipe years ago from the Texas women's board. U use flour instead of cornstarch and lots of zest! the flour makes it; so creamy creamy.
Dec. 2, 2011 11:24 am
hi nikki! it's kinda cold here...please bring soup!
Dec. 2, 2011 11:25 am
hi tunisawife! yep, we need more desserts and i love lemon...make 2!
Dec. 2, 2011 1:57 pm
I would have to bring my pumpkin bread! Both sides of the family request it and now I have friends who request it for their families! Thank goodness I know the recipe by heart because that poor card is stained, curled but so loved! It is going into my recipe books I am making this year as Christmas gifts for each family to pass down recipes of the families.
Dec. 2, 2011 3:59 pm
I'll bring a large Baked Macaroni and Cheese
Dec. 2, 2011 4:22 pm
I make the most mouth watering blue cheese encrusted steak and I make the most delisouse beef wellington. So it would be a toss up between the two!
Dec. 2, 2011 5:21 pm
hi daisy! ( i love your name btw!), pumpkin bread sounds so good!
Dec. 2, 2011 5:23 pm
hi blue! beware of my wife, she may run out and hide that mac and cheese, no kidding, she has been known to steal great mac and cheese...better bring a VERY large pot!
Dec. 2, 2011 5:25 pm

Dec. 3, 2011 2:47 pm
What are moose gater taters?
Dec. 3, 2011 5:08 pm
Pizza muffins! A family tradition that started as a Christmas classic and is now a gathering staple. Pillsbury grands in a muffin tin, shaped int a bowl and filled with sauce, cheese and pepperoni.
Dec. 3, 2011 5:53 pm
hi sky! moosegater taters is a personal recipe, it's in my recipe box. please check it out if interested. kinda a potato casserole made a day ahead. they are named after my daughters...moose and gater.
Dec. 3, 2011 5:54 pm
hi tale! they sound wonderful...especially while cheating at poker!
Dec. 3, 2011 6:52 pm
Oh baby they melt in your mouth when Imake them. I'm wanting one with all this talk about them!
Dec. 15, 2011 6:56 pm
I'm coming with my Carrot Cake and don't worry about it getting stolen, I watched a lady take off with one before. She didn't see me watching and my wise Hubster said it was a compliment to my cooking which got me simmered down. It was for a potluck at the newspaper where the local Congressman was attending and Hubster was a reporter at the time. I wanted my piece of glory but I guess having it stolen because everybody knew about my Carrot Cake was better than some dumb politician saying "Umm, that's good".

About Me
i enjoy cooking. the wife considers it a chore. i hate yard work. she loves it. we mesh. i love bass fishing, reading, music, baseball, college football and my family.
My favorite things to cook
i love vegetables, soups, and italian cusine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
holidays are a big deal! christmas is my time to shine. i try to add a new recipe each year, but the family demands pretty much the same menu. kinda frustrating!
My cooking triumphs
i cared for my mother in law about 3 months when she had shattered her shoulder. i didn't work, so money was tight. we survived on only wife's paycheck during that time. ma-n-law had diet restrictions. it was difficult to make cheap, nutritious meals everyone would eat. we prospered as a family and learned alot about each other's strenghths and weaknesses.
My cooking tragedies
a stove top fire. i explained that one already. the grill falling over was another one...oops grill season is here! i love the tragedies...those are the ones that i'll always remember!
