Kentucky Pecan Pie
This pie is a family favorite. I get many requests to make this for our church bake sales.
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.
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!
Kentucky Butter Cake
Moist and buttery cake made from readily available ingredients with a luscious butter sauce.
Grandma's Hash Brown Casserole
This recipe is a friend's grandma's recipe and is absolutely the best hash brown casserole I've ever had. Kentucky grandmas sure know how to cook!
Kentucky Blue Ribbon All-Butter Pound Cake
This is the recipe my Grandmother would make every year during the holidays. I found the recipe tucked in her Bible when she passed, and it was written in her Grandmother's handwriting. It's been in my family for at least 7 generations, and in 2012, I won a Blue Ribbon at the Kentucky State fair by following her exact instructions. Tastes like pure love!
Old Time Kentucky Bacon Milk Gravy for Biscuits
I grew up with this gravy! Everyone has heard of sausage gravy. Well, it don't compare to this! After frying your bacon for breakfast, use the bacon dripping to make true Kentucky biscuit gravy. Fattening? Oh yeah, you better believe it! Worth it? Yes! Pour over biscuits and serve with crispy bacon and eggs in any style.
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.
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!
This is a great recipe, different than the usual biscuit. Serve piping hot with butter, jam, or honey.
