Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Pike's Peak potatoes

    • nadiam1000 on January 19, 2017

      My go to scalloped/au gratin potatoes - creamy, rich and savory.

  • Pecan bars

    • nadiam1000 on January 19, 2017

      One of my top ten recipes ever; they taste like a marriage between pecan pie and pralines. I always line the pan with a parchment sling and remove the bars from the pan for easier cutting when completely cold.

  • Million dollar rice

    • Jviney on June 13, 2021

      This was suggested as a nice side for the Summertime Marinated Kebabs from the same book and it really was. A different kind of recipe than I’ve made before, subtle but summer comforting, which can be hard to find. Liked this one.

  • Cumberland cucumber dip
