I made this icing yesterday for a chocolate cake I made for a family members birthday. The flavor was out of this world, deep chocolate flavor with the hint of coffee. I could not find espresso powder so I just used instant coffee. The process for this recipe is a bit labor intensive but is so worth the effort. I thought about halving the recipe...

I made these for my family about 10 days ago. I followed the recipe to the letter except I threw in a chopped parsnip, it needed to be cooked or lost. The ribs were fantastic and fall off the bone tender as most people have said. There were only 4 ribs left, I doubled the meat for my hungry family, and they were gone the next day.

We purchased our 20lb ham at a little shop in Culpeper, VA, called Calhoun's, their hams have been served at the White House. We soaked our ham for 3 days due to its size to add moisture and I followed Alton's recipe for cooking but chose to let it sit for a day, removed the rind, leaving at 1/2 inch of fat, I then chose to add a glaze just to...

Turkey Trot time! I have been using this recipe for 10 years now, never once has it failed. The bird is moist, the skin succulent and the guests well stuffed!! I ususally cook a 20-25 pound bird and just up the ingredients accordingly, sometimes I haven't and the bird still is delicious. I make the gotta have gravy from the drippings and everyo...
