This is a great old Maine recipe, moist and spicy. The bread actually tastes even better the day after it is baked. Great for holiday gift giving!

Maine Lobster Lasagna

I made up this recipe because my hubby wanted to try a lasagna made with lobster meat. I combine tender steamed Maine lobster chunks in between pasta, jarred or homemade Alfredo Sauce and fresh spinach and ricotta, Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses. Serve with a tossed garden salad and oven toasted garlic bread.

Restaurant style comfort food directly from Maine that is easy to make and wonderful to eat!! Any white fish such as haddock may be used in place of the cod. Serve with crackers and corn bread if desired!! The real person that deserves full credit for this recipe is a wonderful mother named Cathy that lives in Chicago and loves her son in Kansas!!

Pork Pie

Pork Pie is a standard Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve treat in my predominantly French-Canadian hometown in Maine. It's served with catsup or mustard, tossed salad, and pickles. Simple but wonderful. Top individual servings with catsup or mustard before serving.

World's Best Maine Whoopie Pies - Ayuh

Rating: Unrated
11
Whoopie Pies are one of those comfort foods that make you want more than one. They just don't get any better. Though Whoopie Pies can be delicious any old way...the preferred way to have them is about 5-10 minutes out of the freezer. Tall glass of milk and one of these Whoopies...you will not have a care in the world! The frosting is phenomenal, but make sure you remember that when making it, it will look like a real mess until you've beaten it on high for at least five minutes. Sometime after that it will become like nothing you've seen or eaten. This makes a big batch and is easily halved.

Knedliky - Czech Dumpling with Sauerkraut (Zeli)

Rating: Unrated
31
This was my grandmothers recipe and it has remained a family favorite... It should be served with roast pork, sauerkraut and a nice glass of beer. A very traditional way to eat the leftover dumplings the next day for breakfast or brunch is to chop them up into cubes, pan fry in a little butter; then add eggs and milk, and cook as if you are making scrambled eggs. It's great.
