Apple pie. Definitely. I really like apple pie, but I won't touch it unless somebody made it from scratch with actual apples.

Try a cherry pie with real canned sour cherries, the juice thickened with cornstarch, backed in an all butter crust... (only add an extra can of cherries, with the juice drained and 2 extra tbls. sugar...

it is soooooooooooo delicious.

I'm making an apple pie tonight, with courtland apples, which are the BEST imo, very tart. Whats another good pie apple, cuz I cant always find courtland?

I found an awesome pie crust recipe. with a truckload of shortening and butter, its unbeatable. but geez, just after I went off my Zocor...uh oh....

Apple is your go-to gal on All Things Apple Pie. She totally squared me away for Thanksgiving 2004.

Actually, you'll find that using a mix of apples tastes darn good. Don't forget to throw a couple of Fujis in. Yum!

Spaghetti meat sauce - my specialty. I simmer it 3 hours before mealtime. Yummy! Restaurant spaghetti always tastes.....well...lousy.

Malted milkshakes in the blender.

Baking powder biscuits.

Potato salad - doesn't everyone's mom make the best potato salad?

Mexican food. There's no comparison with the restaurant version because so much of it depends on being freshly made. Done right, it's evanescent and melts in your mouth.

You might get a decent burrito someplace, but enchiladas, flautas, complex sauced dishes suffer in all but a very few restaurants.

And what's up with that awful brown sauce at many Chinese restaurants? Do they get it in 55-gallon drums? :rolleyes:

Hamburger buns. I make a scratch recipe that often turns into the main course as the hamburgers remain in the fridge, neglected.

Chicken pot pie. My wife makes one where all the flavors balance, but you can find any single element with a little concentration.

Carrot Cake. Home cooked seems to be the only way to get that fresh carrot sweetness in the cake.

Keep this up and I won't be practicing tonight, I'll be cooking.

Homemade hamburger buns! Oooh, that sounds great! What do you do?

I've never made a chicken pot pie. I'll put that on my To Do list.

Beelady,

I boycott The Blue Box. If I'm going to have the calories, I'm going to have a Serious Cheese Experience. I even have a version that uses blue cheese, brie, cheddar and tri-color spiral thingies.

Oh, yum! For adults only!

I make the hamburger buns by this recipe from kingarthurflour.com . A self-confessed "bread geek" pointed me to that site, it's been indispensible.

I pretty much stick to that recipe, making sure to do the egg wash just before baking. Our family likes salt on top, not seeds, but that's the only variation. They do spoil quickly, but eating them is never a problem.

Margaritas.

Spaghetti and sauce.

Meatballs.

Chicken soup.

Caesar salad.

I've yet to have a restaurant version of any of these better than I do at home.

Steak!!

Honestly, I have never had a steak at any restaurant as good as one my husband cooks (and I season) at home. For that very reason, my husband and I never order steak at a restaurant. It pales in comparison.

That said, I do forgive him if they are over or undercooked. Even he isn't perfect! laugh

I've perfected my recipe:

1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz orange juice
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz Cointreau
2 oz Tequila (I prefer resposada)

blend with crushed ice, strain into salted rim glasses.

I buy limes by the bag, juice them, and make ice cube trays of them so they are always ready to go!

What's Mr Bee's formula?


Estonically yours,
