When your family gets together what foods are/were cooked for celebrations or special events? Do you always have ham or leg of lamb for Easter dinner? And the turkey for American Thanksgiving? How about St. Patrick's Day. Who has corned beef? Or do you go out of your way to have other special meals on birthdays and other holidays?

One thing I started doing several years ago on Independence Day in the US...otherwise known as the 4th of July. We make homemade ice cream! Last year we made 3 kinds. Vanilla custard, chocolate and the new one which was a hit was peanut butter crunch! Oh MY goodness~ it was amazing. I have an ancient wood bucket style churn that we take turns cranking by hand. The little ones think they're so strong and barely get one crank. Then the teenagers have to prove how strong they are and darn near spin the stuff right out the But it seems that hubby always ends up finishing it and packing it into the freezer. But he gets to lick the dasher that way. He's no

What foods are traditional for celebrations in your family?

Well, I'm married to a pretty cool woman, and she never likes to follow the traditional meal for Holidays. Her and I both love to cook and often work together in the kitchen. We are looking all the time for special meals that have that wow factor, and makes the guest ask for the recipe. One of her latest deserts is a chocolate cake, that calls for Coffee in it. It is amazing to hear guest after guest asking what it is that makes it so good.

Of course we share our recipes with them, and the friendship is the greatest part of it all.

Man! This is making me hungry just talking about it. She makes the best mashed Potato's too with Garlic in them.

O.K. SE I would love to have the Chocolate Cake/Coffee recipe!!

For us, the Easter Dinner always had...get this...Banana Soup! No, it is not soup made with banana's! It's actually a fruit salad with everything under the sun in it. The thing that holds it all together is heavy whipped cream until it looks like Cool Whip, but tastes so much better. After mixing that up with vanilla flavoring and sugar, then adding the fruit and I like pecans in it! Yum!!!
