    Don't understand all this raffle stuff. But again, I would like to see if any of these authors can beat out the best meatloaf of Chef Prudhomme.

    Chicken Kiev

  • pokarekare  on  May 19, 2015

    Roast pukeko. Just kidding – it's in my great grandmother's cookbook. My mother used to make a delicious dish called chicken a la King but i don't have a recipe for it. it had asparagus and a creamy sauce. so I'll vote for that instead.

  • southerncooker  on  May 19, 2015

    Mac and cheese. I'm always willing to try a new version.

  • trudys_person  on  May 19, 2015

    Chicken Divan – a chicken casserole with broccoli and peppers – a 70s classic!

  • contest718  on  May 19, 2015

    chicken parm or lasagne would be great revised. maybe something that does not take so long to make with good ingredients and from scratch.

  • jecca  on  May 20, 2015

    Stuffed cabbage – I grew up eating my mom's version of this and while it is good, it is a bit heavy and bland and could use a makeover

  • dmass  on  May 21, 2015

    I would like to see Coq au vin or something similar to that.

  • dmass  on  May 21, 2015

    I would like to see Coq au vin or something similar to that. Thank you!

  • cadfael  on  May 23, 2015

    my Acadian Grandmother used to make a potato and onion based dressing flavoured with summer savoury to stuff a large haddock which she then roasted with a little water in the pan. She made a white sauce with the drippings to pour over.
