We know you have a signature dish that makes everybody go crazy. Or you make something following the usual recipe, and the one day you do something different–add your own touch, if you will–people are asking what you did that time around. There are so many ways to give food your own zap. We all do it. That’s why only Grandma So-and-So can make the potato salad at the family reunion picnic.
At Thanksgiving, no one takes the yams from Uncle Whoever. He’s the only one that makes them just right. If you want to avoid the wrath of greedy family members, please don’t give the Easter ham to anybody except Cousin What’s-Her-Name. Only she knows what she’s doing. You know what we’re talking about.
What are they doing to make those dishes so good?
Well, that’s their secret to the grave. You’ll probably never find out, and maybe that’s OK. If we had the in’s and out’s of everyone’s recipes, they wouldn’t be unique anymore. Maybe the best part of eating that signature dish is knowing that you’ll never have a clue what’s in it. The mystery makes each bite so good.
We test drove some cookies, making a couple of interesting decisions along the way. A little of this, a bit of that. Making sure to incorporate distinct and noteworthy aspects to each recipe. We’re still experimenting, but we think we’re onto something. Don’t hate us for being vague. We just wanted to show you a few of the things we’ve been working on for a special project, but we do have to keep our DD touch secret for now! And we won’t hate it if you do the same.
What are some of your best dishes?
