Savoring Kentucky's Recipe Collection

This is an eclectic collection of recipes that doesn't even pretend to be comprehensive (or healthy, for that matter.) These recipes are here because they give great pleasure. They have special meaning to our family or to me. They are like a nicely stuffed but not necessarily comprehensive recipe box. They include some recipes from Hot Water Cornbread, a weekly radio show about Kentucky food and all kinds of goodness. If you are looking JUST for Hot Water Cornbread radio show recipes, go here.

* All recipes with asterisks have a tie of some sort to Hot Water Cornbread: Kentucky Food Radio, which Rona co-hosts weekly with Chefs Ouita and Christopher Michel of the Holly Hill Inn Family of Restaurants. We have fun each Tuesday at 2 PM ET, WLXL-LP FM, 95.7, streaming live at Lexington Community Radio.
