Lemon drizzle cake!!

Karen M said...

My friends always love my cheesy potatoes. Even the crusty edges get scraped off the pan. They are yummy. Thanks for the chance to win.

Liz said...

barbeque beef brisket - there are never any leftovers.

Susan said...

My kids say I make two things well--bread and soup. I feel sorry for them, they probably wish I would be good at dessert-y foods, but that's the way it is. At least they can always count on me for something sustaining.

Joan said...

I'm really good at making reservations. Oh, and French toast.

Roasted root vegetables...beets, carrots, sweet potatoes, potatoes, parsnips, and leeks...balsamic vinegar, olive oil , pepper, garlic and rosemary...yummy!

Congratulations Wanda for the win. I am required to bring Aunt Carm's Cheesecake to any gathering. I have been invited to the ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the newly remodeled Silver Swap Studio on 3/21(the music studio space for my nephew's band The Michael Weber Show) and I will be bringing a cheesecake to go with the chicken, pizza, and cake. We even wrote a song about the cheesecake! Someday it will be as famous and Jimmy Buffet's cheeseburger song!

I usually get requests for Carmel Popcorn - it is a favorite at our church bake sale and sells out to our volunteers before the sale even starts!
Thanks for the give-a-way!!

Laura said...

I get requests for my mashed potato casserole all the time. I think there would be a revolt at Thanksgiving if I just made regular mashed potatoes.

SandyQuilts said...

My tilapia and mandarin dinner. My friends like for me to bring roasted/grilled veggies to parties. thk

Rebecca said...

empanadas! little hand held pies with savory fillings.

JoAnne said...

Italian Cream Cake - our favorite!

I'm always asked for my Cranberry Pecan Cake at potlucks.....and it's so easy.....so I gladly bring it! :o)

Needled Mom said...

Congratulations to Wanda. I am always asked to bring my 3 bean baked bean dish.

sissa said...

People are usually happy to see me show up because I'm good on the clean up crew - my cooking leaves a lot to be desired!!

Barb said...

My family really likes my stuffing at Thanksgiving.

pippirose said...

My best dish Cabbage Rolls.
Thanks for the chance to win your lovely pincushion!

Lynn said...

I also make really good pie crust so my pies turn out great, even though I don't make it often now. My husband's choice for his birthday is always cherry pie.

Kathryn said...

I make a really good banana cake.

RustyBird said...

Dark Chocolate Brownies!

Carol said...

my family likes my beef roast with potatoes and carrots--a basic but seasoned and simmered until just right! and I recognized that Kaffe fabric right away! beautiful!

Pickles Quilting said...

My best dish: Beef Stew (for dinner) & Pumpkin Bread (dessert). Yum! Yum! -Brittany

Melinda said...

I think the most requested thing I make is my pumpkin roll.

Lynda D said...

Paklava (baklava) is the dessert my family looks forward to my making for the holidays. I learned how from my great-grandmothers who made their own phyllo dough...I purchase mine as the process is so labor intensive.

Thanks for providing an opportunity for us to share and to win.

Stay warm...spring will soon be upon us...daylight savings, robins, and crocus tips poking up through the southerly edges of our home say so.

Debra Crumbaker said...

My family's favorite dish that I make is baked beans. I have lots of bacon and lots of brown sugar with the onions. Yum! Since I don't make it very often (don't like to fry bacon on the stove because of the splatters), my family really enjoys it on those special occasions. It is good. Thanks for the chance to win.

cariboocarol said...

I make a traditional Scandinavian almond cake that a lot of friends like.
Congrats to Wanda on that last pin win cushion. They are all so pretty.

trudys_person said...

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake - I have a recipe that gets gobbled up, and people always ask for the recipe. And its a really easy recipe!

JustCallMeElle said...

I am not much of a cook - not because I can't but because my husband is a gourmet cook. I'm pretty lucky there. When we go somewhere, they always request 'our' anti-pasto. Grilled veggies, good italian cheeses, smoked Italian coldcuts, olives, pepperocini, drizzled with olive oil and basamic. Yum.

Dixie said...

For pot lucks I make crockpot meatballs...very simple but I see people loading them up on their plates. Just take a bag of frozen meatballs, a bottle of your fav barbecue sauce and about a heaping teaspoon of spicey Montreal seasoning. Throw everything in a crockpot on low - yes even the frozen meatballs - for 2 hours..can go longer

JoAnne in southern California said...

Deviled eggs are my specialty. I don't like cooking, etc. so any time I have to take a food something, it's my deviled eggs. When I'm supposed to bring a dessert, main dish or salad to my guild's potluck, they always tell me to bring my deviled eggs. They disappear quickly!

RustyBird said...

Karen, please pass this hint on to Debra Crumbaker. Bake the bacon instead of frying it. Instructions can be found on the King Arthur Flour blog:

25-35 minutes at 350 degrees, then: Yum! And SO much easier!
