Sit on the front porch in your rocking chair on a sultry afternoon and sip on one or two of these. The proper way to serve a mint julep is in a frozen silver goblet, but you can use glasses instead--just use the most elegant ones you have! You can make the syrup ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for whenever the julep mood strikes you.
Run For The Roses Pie III
A pie filling made with nuts and chocolate, and flavored with bourbon. Serve warm with ice cream.
Kentucky Hot Brown
If you're a southern belle or gentleman at heart you have to try this one! Hot turkey over hot toast and smothered in a buttery sauce. There are two things Kentucky does right--horse racing and the hot brown. This is also great for Thanksgiving leftovers!
Kentucky Butter Cake
Moist and buttery cake made from readily available ingredients with a luscious butter sauce.
Original Hot Brown
This recipe originally came from the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY. I have altered it based on how I have had it served in restaurants in Louisville. This is a good way to use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and my husband looks forward to it every year.
Alcohol-Free Mint Julep
An alcohol FREE mint julep for you non-drinkers out there.... now you don't have to drink water and can enjoy the classic mint julep with a slight twist while watching the Kentucky Derby!
This is a great recipe, different than the usual biscuit. Serve piping hot with butter, jam, or honey.
Traditional Kentucky Burgoo
This is my version of a traditional Kentucky stew recipe my brother brought back after going to school in Louisville. A favorite on Derby Day or any day!
Kentucky Style Fried Green Tomatoes
If you're not frying your green tomatoes in bacon grease then you have lost half of the great flavor! No self-respecting Southerner fries their green tomatoes in anything but bacon grease!
Dad's Kentucky Home Fries
Yummy fried potatoes with the flavor of Kentucky. Easy to make while camping or at home. Leftovers store great in the fridge for a microwave breakfast on the go. For an East Coast twist, add diced green pepper.
