  • “Best Ever” Pie

    I found this in my mother’s recipe collection, in a pamphlet entitled “Pecan Facts from Sunnyland Farms.” I don’t remember her making it, but evidently, she was quite taken with the recipe, as evidenced by the penciled circle and arrows marking it. 2 eggs 1 C sugar 1 t cinnamon 1 t cloves 1/2 C…

  • Philip’s Chicken with Asiago, Prosciutto, and Mushrooms

    This was the last meal Philip Wilson cooked before his untimely passing. He was so happy that day, in his brother Bob’s well-equipped kitchen, fixing a meal side-by-side with those he loved, and then sitting down to enjoy it with lively conversation. He could never follow a recipe without making it his own, so he…

  • Aebleskiver

    Aebleskiver

    Aebleskiver (pronounced able-skeever) are the strangest pancakes I’ve ever eaten…also the most delicious! They’re Danish, and I was introduced to them by my friend Philip Wilson, who is a) tall and b) of Danish descent. That makes him a Great Dane. Anyway, aebleskiver are made in a special cast-iron pan with 7 indentations — the…

  • Awesome Turkey Gravy

    Gravy is a sauce and is usually just broth thickened with cooked flour. The broth-flour mixture doesn’t become thickened until the flour cooks, usually at boiling temperature. Most gravy tastes better if some of the fat is left in the broth. However too much fat in the broth can be bad for your health. Gravy…

  • Wilson-Knepper Cinnamon Rolls

    This sounds like a simple, easy cinnamon roll recipe. However, I suspect this is just the tip of the iceberg — there can be much more to the recipe than this. For example, the last time the Wilson-Knepper household made these, there were at least 15 boxes of Hot Roll Mix used, and something like…
