    I would have to say my favorite recipes would be my dressing, sweet potato casserole, broccoli casserole (I use recipe for Campbells green bean casserole but sub broccoli) apple-gingerbread cobbler and my homemade mac & cheese. I also make my coleslaw like you do and everyone loves it! I don't use salt in mine though cause I feel the mayo is salty enough. How much pepper and sugar so you use in yours?

    I enjoy making the dressing. I love cornbread with mushrooms, sausage, onions & celery. I am always in charge of the dressing and would be miffed if I wasn't, lol.

    Those all sound wonderful girls....Mine would be my oven- roasted veggies and my mother's stuffing recipes with sausage and chestnuts.

    We always eat dinner at my mother-in-law's, and she insists upon making all the dishes herself. So, most years I bring a plate of my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies... then I still feel like I'm contributing something, but it doesn't interefere with her menu. (In my family it's a major sin to NOT bring something to dinner, so it took a few years for MIL and I to work it out-- me feeling guilty and her feeling like I was stepping on her toes-- LOL!)

    Sugar pie! I love sugar pie, even though you can't eat too much of it. That, and maple glazed carrots. I drizzle my steamed carrots with butter and pure maple syrup, season with salt and pepper and its very delicious.

    I always make sage stuffing -- a recipe handed down to me by my mom. I also bake the pies. I love baking pies.

    My specialty is the turkey and gravy.

    I put mine into the oven the night before (around 8 pm). It has been washed out and buttered and salt and peppered and put into the pan upside down. I add a can of chicken broth and then roast it on 300 degrees for 60 minutes. After that, I turn the oven down to 200 degrees and cook it until I am ready to make the rest of the meal (about 11 am the next day)

    It's not "pretty" because it is cooked breast side down, but I cut it up before serving it anyway.

    This technique makes the house smell great all night, moist white meat, and gravy to die for. There is usually about 3 inches of juice in the pan that I make into gravy. dh wants to just drink it from a cup but ..
