Sugar Cream Pie I

Rating: Unrated
This is a delicious lighter cream pie for which the filling is cooked prior to being put in the baked shell. Real butter and half and half are must-haves for this to be at its best. People always ask for the recipe.

Taco in a Bag

Rating: Unrated
I love Taco in a Bag! I had this recipe at the Covered Bridge Festival in Indiana. My family loves them too! The chip bag serves as a shell for the tacos.

Autumn Apple Onion Pork Chops

Rating: Unrated
This is a fairly common autumn dish in Indiana. It always reminds me of local harvest festivals. Crimson and gold leaves under foot, hay rides, the crisp sweet smell of the air...comfort food, pure and simple. There are many variations, but this is the favorite in our home. To be honest, I've never measured the spices before I sat down to write this, so please feel free to adjust to your own tastes.

Banh Bao

Rating: Unrated
I'm a Vietnamese living in Indiana who had to find a recipe for one of my favorite Vietnamese snacks, banh bao. They are a variation on the Chinese cha siu bao (Chinese pork buns). I would like to thank Houston Wok for providing Ms. SkimmyJeans' moist filling recipe and Miss Adventure[at]home for a tasty bun recipe. Combined, this is my ultimate banh bao recipe.

Big Bear Stew

If you kill a bear, you better have something good to make out of it! This stew is delicious! Serve with a crusty bread!

Baked Chicken Reuben

Rating: Unrated
This is a great make-ahead dish from Marcia C. Adams of Fort Wayne, Indiana. It took the top $10,000 prize in the National Chicken Cooking Contest in Dallas, Texas. It sounds weird, but it is good.

Easy Polish Noodles

Rating: Unrated
Growing up in South Bend, Indiana, Polish dinner buffets are extremely common at weddings and funerals. Polish noodles are a staple at these events and served alongside Polish sausage, green beans, mashed potatoes and chicken gravy, and fried chicken. While at a Polish meat market, an elderly Polish lady passed this recipe on to me upon request.
