I'm pretty sure Paula Deen and I have the same palate, I just wish I had her imagination and skills.  This corn casserole was so yummy!  I added the green chiles and only used 1/2 of the cheese and creamed corn that it called for.  I also substituted the sour cream with greek no-fat yogurt (my new love).  I will definitely be making this again.

A blend of baked potatoes and mashed potatoes.  I use to make these all the time to bring to the lake.  You can make them up ahead of time and if you'd like to place them on the grill just wrap them in foil after you stuff them.  Then again if you grill them, they wouldn't be "twice baked".  Call them what you may, I call them delicious!

I love lo mein at the local buffet but I'm not real fond of the vegetable to noodle ratio that they have.  I do love my vegetables.  Since I am not able to find the correct type of noodle for this dish, I compromised with ramen noodles.  It was delicious and loaded with veggies.

I've never had Panera Bread's version of this soup so I'm not sure how it compares.  I know this was very good and hearty, the sharp cheddar that I used really complimented the bland creaminess of the cauliflower.

I first had pierogies about 10 years ago when my mother-in-law made them.  Her family drizzled browned butter over them before serving.  I was not really fond of the browned butter, I thought they would be better with white gravy over them.  I guess I've been living in the Midwest for too long.  These are pierogies without all the work.  The onions are a must if you are an onion fan.

The coleslaw recipe was right on the money.  I would recommend making it the day before you wish to serve it.  When it sits in the refrigerator for awhile the flavors really have a chance to blend together.
