"So don't go no where. 'Cause you don't wanna miss this!"
Roasted garlic makes a great appetizer served with roasted peppers and goat's cheese. It really kicks up the flavor in any Italian recipe which calls for cooked garlic.
Sweet Afton's Key Lime Pie
Key Lime Pie is one of those legendery deserts that can sometimes be a huge disappointment when ordering out. But a relly great Key Lime will always be an epic culinary experience! Sweet Afton's is epic! I developed this recipe more than 35 years ago because I was so tired of being disappointed with the hit or miss experiences I had. When my daughter Afton was twelve years old, I taught her the recipe to make, and sell to local restaurants. No grahm cracker crust here. Fresh Ginger Snaps yes!
Blackeye Peas & Skillet Corn Bread
Just a good ol', down home, southern recipe that is the perfect way to kick off the New Year, or enjoy anytime!
Captain Bill's Back Bay She Crab Soup
The eastern boundry of the Pungo Prairie also happens to be the western shoreline of Back Bay, and Back Bay is also the home of the Blue Jimmy Crab. These crabs yeild up some of the sweetest meat ever, and the jumbo lump from the backfin goes into the makin' of this almost decadent soup.I developed this recipe nearly 40 years ago because I grew frustrated getting hit or miss ordering it out. Until now I have only given the recipe to maybe three people. That's less than once per decade! I just decided that some really great things are meant to be shared.
Dixon's Tent Camp Collards
My favorite time of the year is Fall, and that means planting a fall garden. The main crop for me is Collards. Around these parts everybody just loves these big ol' leafy greens, and they also know that you have to wait for a frost to pick them so they'll be sweet. My family celebrates Thanksgiving in the mountains where I have my hunting tent camp set up. They always ask me to fix up a mess. We also make up a big ol' pot every year for the Pungo Fall Party. Folks just rave about them. Now believe it or not, some people don't like collards. At least they think they don't. That's because they've never had these collards. Actually this is one of my most requested recipes!
Steamed Asparagus Pungo Prairie
Most of the local farmers in Pungo grow Asparagus. It takes a couple of years to get it goin', and it likes a sandy soil. Once it takes off, asparagus will come back every year growin' like weeds. I always make up a big platter for Easter Dinner. One of my favorite things to do with asparagus is to make it as a full meal served with smoked Salmon. Now that's a marriage made in Heaven right there! This quick and delicious recipe will have you steaming it up the Pungo Prairie way!
