Chicken a la King
What I like the most about Heather’s Chicken a la King post is that she shares her delicious “from scratch” version, but shares how much this dish — in canned form — meant to her as a child. When it comes to food memories, I truly believe that it doesn’t necessarily matter the ingredients used…what matters is the way it made us feel. Her Chicken a la King brings those same feelings to her, even though now she makes differently than what she grew up with.
Anne is a great storyteller who shares a recipe that started with a leftover ham bone and a hungry husband (according to her mom). She even includes a bit of “pork ‘n beans” history, but one of my favorite parts of her post is the photo of the big brick barbecue pit at her family home…which shows a massive amount of chicken grilling on it.
Hezzi shares all about her family’s tradition of making pierogies, including details about The Great Pierogi Race at Pittsburgh Pirates game. I was particularly happy to read that she knows how to make them now so she’ll be able continue the family tradition when the time comes.
