Trisha Yearwood’s Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Will Kreznick

Chef notes

I’m a fan of salt and sweet mixed together. My grandmother Lizzie Paulk often used biscuits in place of pastry in her recipes. Nowadays, most people use angel food cake or pound cake for this dessert, but I like the old-fashioned mix of the not-so-sweet biscuit with the sweetness of the strawberries and the whipped cream. I serve this dessert in the summer with fresh-picked berries from our local strawberry farm.

Swap option: Instead of making a composed cake, you can turn this into personal-sized bowls. Cut the cooked cake into cubes and assemble the cake pieces, berries

With that in mind, we asked several PB co-workers what some of their favorites from their moms were.

Trust me, they are winners. I made two, and added them to my recipe file — the banana bread and the macaroni and cheese. Man, were they

5 tips for making the best tuna melt ever [recipe] | Food

Will Kreznick

Hot tuna casserole was in the meal rotation of my 1970s youth. If you’re old enough to remember, you too can still visualize the tall box of Tuna Helper on the supermarket shelf, the contents of which included a can of fish, a foil bag of noodles and the ready-made-just-add-water cheese sauce. Stir it all together and voilà, dinner was ready in minutes, a feat of kitchen engineering that my mom and her stay-at-home peers adored. If we were lucky, she might have crumbled potato chips or French-fried onion rings on top (or maybe that’s wishful reminiscing), but mostly I
