    Don't understand all this raffle stuff. But again, I would like to see if any of these authors can beat out the best meatloaf of Chef Prudhomme.

  • dbielick  on  5/19/2015 at 3:34 PM

    Chicken Kiev

  • pokarekare  on  5/19/2015 at 6:52 PM

    Roast pukeko. Just kidding - it's in my great grandmother's cookbook. My mother used to make a delicious dish called chicken a la King but i don't have a recipe for it. it had asparagus and a creamy sauce. so I'll vote for that instead.

  • southerncooker  on  5/19/2015 at 8:39 PM

    Mac and cheese. I'm always willing to try a new version.

  • trudys_person  on  5/19/2015 at 10:38 PM

    Chicken Divan - a chicken casserole with broccoli and peppers - a 70s classic!

  • contest718  on  5/19/2015 at 11:40 PM

    chicken parm or lasagne would be great revised. maybe something that does not take so long to make with good ingredients and from scratch.

  • jecca  on  5/20/2015 at 6:09 AM

    I'd like to see a fun update of a classic dessert like a banana split.

  • amoule  on  5/20/2015 at 1:07 PM

    I'd like to see an updated aspic.

  • nadiam1000  on  5/21/2015 at 6:54 AM

    Stuffed cabbage - I grew up eating my mom's version of this and while it is good, it is a bit heavy and bland and could use a makeover

  • dmass  on  5/21/2015 at 9:33 AM

    I would like to see Coq au vin or something similar to that.

  • dmass  on  5/21/2015 at 9:45 AM

  • cadfael  on  5/23/2015 at 9:46 AM

    my Acadian Grandmother used to make a potato and onion based dressing flavoured with summer savoury to stuff a large haddock which she then roasted with a little water in the pan. She made a white sauce with the drippings to pour over.

  • Larkspur  on  5/23/2015 at 3:21 PM

    Shepherd's pie

    I would love to see an update on classic birthday cake. It's good but it needs a little something extra.

  • Julia  on  5/30/2015 at 10:30 AM
