Alabama-Style BBQ Sauce
My family and I are addicted to Big Bob Gibson’s Championship Red barbecue sauce; it has the right balance of sweet and hot, and we think it would taste good served on anything! Big Bob’s is located in Decatur, Alabama, and serves some of the most delectable BBQ you will ever taste. The sauce recipe presented here is pretty close to Big Bob’s, but I think we need to sit in Big Bob’s kitchen to find the secret ingredients!

Braised Turnips and Carrots
I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've eaten turnips. They're so often overlooked, because most people don't know how to cook these ruddy little root vegetables which are high in vitamin C. Then I had braised turnips at Locanda in San Francisco and I was sold on the idea that a turnip could taste delicious. And after creating this recipe, I can safely say that I have kindled a new love of turnips in our home. Click here to see Comfort Food Alternatives.

Baachan's Miso Soup
For 92 years (and counting!), my baachan (Japanese grandmother) has been making this soup. She raised four beautiful daughters through World War II — so she knows a little something about comfort food. My big sis and I sought out baachan's recipe, which is nothing like your watered-down sushi bar miso. This is hearty, comforting, and as authentic as Japanese food gets. See all miso recipes.
