What's your signature dish?

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you have one dish that you're famous for among your friends and family? Is that the only thing you cook/bake well?

For family gatherings I usually get picked to make the pork greens (DH's cousin makes the greens for the non-pork eaters).  I'm also known for my zucchini bread.

I have a few other things that I make pretty good, but DH is a much better cook than I am.  I either need a recipe or a lot of experience making something before it's good.  He's able to just throw things together until they taste good.

She is Swedish, her parents were born there. She was born here. They all live in Minnesota. There are a lot of people of Swedish decent living in Minnesota. She probably never cooked traditional meals b/ c my father is AA and prefers " soulfood"


Quoting babyblue415:

then she is probably not Swedish. Do you stay in touch with her? does she speak swedish fluently? maybe she is just half swedish or maybe she is from swedish decent. i dont know i'm "fresh of the boat" so to speak lol i just immigrated here in 08. i would love to meet more swedish people here in the states. but i guess i can always suggest you to go to ikea and have some swedish meatballs with mashed potatoes and lingon berry. thats as swdish as u can get i guess in regards to food

yeah that makes sense. i was watching the history channel one day and it showed how many people immigrated back in the 1800 and made villages and stuff. i had a cousin who's husband was stationed in kansas and she said they had alot of swedish stuff there as well. my hubby is aa and puerto rican and i'm so lucky he loves to try new foods. i'm lucky he lets me cook swedish foods haha but mostly i love soulfood anyway and thats usually what we eat as well.

1 mom liked this

My friends and family love my lasagna and are always asking me to make it. I can also put my foot in some macaroni and cheese and collard greens with cabbage.

 I can bake like nobody's business. Cakes, pies, cookies, anything sweet- you name it, I can bake it. And decorate it, that's definitely my favorite part.

I'm a pretty good cook too, I can cook just about anything. Except bacon. LOL

I am not a baker at all. I would like to get more comfortable with it though.

 I have a major sweet tooth, so I learned early on, about 12 years old, how to bake the things I liked, because my mom didn't have a lot of time when she was working (she's a nurse). By the time I was 16, I was showing BOTH my parents how to do things in the kitchen! lol
