    Everyone has an aunt that makes THE best potato salad. What is a dish that you are known for or you can make really well?

    I would have to say that I am known for my rosettes because they are difficult to make. Sadly, they are time consuming to make, but quick to eat! The disappear faster than I can make them!

    What is something that you can cook that is special?

      I am known for my Spinach/Artichoke Dip.  It is a hit at the parties!  It is simple and tastes delicious.  People will often request it when I go to parties.  The recipe is available on my hubpages.  Also, I make some mean fudge during the holidays.

    I have a casserole I created about 30 years ago that I am known for. It is Mexican meets Italian. It is spicy and the "heat" is adjustable to one's own taste.
    I will be posting it in a hub I am working on as soon as I get pics back.

    I make stuffed peppers.  I think I'm known for it because I do it differently than most.  I use red peppers (I think green ones are bitter when heated, and becomes an unappetizing color) and shredded pork loin (I dislike ground meat and think it's too dense).  I also add wine, breading, and white crumbled cheese--feta or gorgonzola.  It does tend to take a long time.  It started out as a leftover meal, for left over pork loin, and now I have to make the pork loin and then make the stuffed peppers.  But it's always a crowd pleaser.

      Wow, that sounds absolutely amazing! My father makes stuffed cabbage rolls that are the best ever. It's a Polish recipe as my dad is Polish. They are to die for. I should get that recipe from him! That sounds really good!

        I had some fantastic ukrainian cabbage rolls at a friends wedding (it was one of their family specialties).  It was fantastic.

            no, i don't really prep the pepper.  I like the pepper to be firm, I don't like soft vegetables.

    I love to eat and try to restrict calories to something worth being fat for.  I think I have multiple special dishes.  I was in the Air Force 20 years, and macaroni and cheese was my thing for most all Thanksgiving and Christmas meals.  There were usually enough fellow Southerners around, who viewed homemade baked mac and cheese to be just as important as the turkey.  It was a great compliment, but I felt pretty obligated to make it for all holiday gatherings.  Of course, I too expected it at holidays, and since my mom and aunts were nowhere near, it was up to me!

    Actually it's my dad who makes the best potato salad smile

    And as for me...well...hmmm...I would say I took after my mom and can make a killer broccoli salad. And i make really good cakes...

    As for cooking I guess I can grill on my george forman girrl any kind of meat and fish. smile but that's about it. OH and really good soda pot roast. I'll have to make a hub out of that one. smile
