Someone sent me (I live in Canada) Recipes of ALL the USA states from Alabama Chocolate Pecan Jumbo Christmas Fudge Pie to Wyoming Sheepherder Chili. There are too many to post here but if anyone would like me to post their State I would be happy to do it.

Thank you Gardendragon! How about CONCH STEW? Would love to make it. Emeril is great and the Virginia Strawberry Treat sounds like something I will fix for Easter when the crowd comes over. I tease them that they only love me for my cooking and only visit for a 'care package'. But I love it!
This is a great thread gardendragon. I hope you can persevere through the states. In North Carolina, Barbecue stands out. We have 3 kinds that are commonly used. One is tomato based like Texas'. One is vinegar and pepper based and one is mustard based (around the Pee Dee River area). What recipe was given for NC?
Woodspirit1, Yup NC came up Barbecue.

1/4 ts Chili powder
1/4 ts Nutmeg, ground
1/4 ts Sugar
1/2 c Water
Vinegar, cider; to taste
Sauce, Tabasco; to taste
Brown roast in a small amount of fat and place in a Dutch oven. Mix the next 9 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour over roast and cover. Bake in a preheated 325^ oven, 40 minutes to the pound, until done, basting occasionally with drippings. Transfer roast to a chopping board. Remove meat from the bone and chop into fairly fine pieces. Season to taste with additional vinegar and hot sauce. Serve hot with coleslaw and corn bread.

Nebraska_Jewel, Herewith for your state. Sounds like an easy supper dish.
Nebraska Sausage Casserole
1 pound bulk sausage, cooked and drained
1 onion, cooked with the sausage
3 stalks of celery, diced
7 oz macaroni, cooked and drained
1 can celery soup
╝ tsp butter flavoring
Salt and pepper to taste
Shredded cheddar cheese
Combine all ingredients except the last two. Sprinkle bread crumbs and cheese on top. Heat through in oven or on top of the stove.
Sayre, Don't have a conch recipe, thought it might be Hawaii, but not. What states have Conch? Thought it was a Jamacian ingredient? What do I know?
Hehehe... oh yeah, the cheesecake... maybe because I avoid the stuff like the plague, I didn't think of it. Me and cheesecake get along TOO well. :)
This is originally an old Czech recipe although since learning it from my mother I have made changes. I grew up in Nebraska but now live in California.
1 cup milk
1/3 stick butter
Bring to a boil
2 eggs beaten
Pour milk, butter mixture over eggs while beating eggs
Add flour, approx. 2-1/2 cups, while working with the back of a wooden spoon until just firm enough to handle (dough should be as soft as possible)
Divide in two and place in buttered bowls.
Cover with plastic film (better than the moist towel that was used in the past)
Rest for 20-30 minutes in a warm place or over warm water (dough must be kept warm!)
Stretch on a floured cloth (as thin as possible) 2-1/2 or 3 foot diameter
I sometimes cheat and use a rolling pin.
sliced apples, 4-5 apples
or sliced peaches or nectarines, 6 or so
or 8 0z. fresh cranberries and 2 or 3 apples, sliced GOOD!!!
Dot with butter
Sprinkle with some or all of the following.
sugar, less sugar with peaches, more with cranberries
flour, more flour with cranberries, even more with peaches
Lift sides of cloth to flip edges in 1 to 1-1/2 inch
(This from a German cookbook it makes the roll much more full without the hard thin ends)
Roll and placed on pan
Sprinkle sugar on top
Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes
Rub some butter on the surface to keep it soft and continue baking at 400 degrees for 45 more minutes In my oven 350 is better)
George, I thought Apple Strudle was Austrian or German.
Maybe every European nation has their version of Apple Strudle. Delicious!! Lots of work to make the dough though.
Gardendragon, there are a lot of German, Czech and Polish folks in Nebraska, so a lot of the cooking is from the old country - strudels, kolache, and my all-time favorite: runzas (a beef, cabbage, onion, carrot mixture folded into a bread pocket - to die for!)
George, what part of Nebraska did you grown up in? I spent my first 10 years in SE Nebraska, in a small town south of Beatrice. My parents moved back to Nebraska a few years ago, and have completely renovated my grandparents' home, so we make it back a few times a year....
Yes - runzas are a true Nebraska recipe. I've included the recipe. I've also included a little summary on the Runza restaurants. When I visit friends who have moved from Nebr to New Mexico, I take a batch of runzas to them.
Bread dough (2 loaves)
1 lb Hamburger
1/2 Head cabbage (chopped)
1/2 Medium onion (chopped)
Salt and pepper to taste
Thaw two loaves of frozen bread dough or make the equivalent amount using your favorite bread recipe. While dough thaws, make the filling.
Brown the hamburger and drain, then return to pan. Add cabbage and onion and cook down. Salt and pepper to taste (1 tsp pepper recommended).
Let dough rise, then punch down and roll a portion to 1/4" thickness. Cut into 4" x 8" pieces and add about 1/2 cup meat mixture to each. Fold dough pieces over and seal the edges, then place seam-side-down on a greased cookie sheet.
Let rise 20-30 minutes, then bake in pre-heated 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until brown. Call Nebraska natives not in attendance and gloat (taunting not advised).
History of Runza« Restaurants
The Runza« Sandwich has German-Russian roots stretching back to the 18th century. The unique blend of fresh ground beef, cabbage, onions and special spices baked inside homemade bread was passed down from one generation to the next, eventually finding its way to America. It made its commercial debut in Lincoln, Nebraska, when Sarah "Sally" Everett and her brother, Alex Brening, opened the first Runza« Drive-Inn in 1949.
Although Sarah and Alex have passed away, Runza« Sandwiches are still being made from their mother's original recipe. The trade name and trademark rights to Runza« Restaurants now belong to Sarah's son, Donald R. Everett, who opened his first Runza« Restaurant in 1966. Under his direction, Runza« Restaurants has grown into a regional chain of Over 60 restaurants in Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, Kansas and Colorado.
Thanks, Nebraska_Jewel! My mom always made hers (and now I do, too) with some shredded carrots, too. I thought that's the way they were "supposed" to be until I read your recipe - I guess it was probably her way of sneaking some carrots into our diets! I've also been known to add a slice of American cheese to mine, although it's probably way out of bounds for a true Runza.
For those who haven't tried these, another selling point (besides their wonderful taste fresh out of the oven!) is that they freeze pretty well if well wrapped/bagged. I continue my mom's tradition of keeping frozen runzas on hand to reheat for quick snacks/meals.
go_vols - sometimes I use the prepackaged shredded cabbage which contains the carrots. I like the carrots but my dh grumbled the last time I made them. The Runza restaurants now several varieties (cheeze, Italian, etc.)
We have some friends who started investing in the Runzas about 10 years ago - wish we would have done that!
Go_Vols I grew up on a farm between Clarkson, Howells, Schuyler, about 80 miles west of Omaha. My mother grew up near Dodge. She was a wonderful gardener (both vegetables and flowers), she canned and then later froze huge amounts of food and was a great cook.
BUT, I have never heard of Runza before.
Hey George - you were raised in the "bohemian alps". I was raised near West Point. My sister and her husband farm near Dodge. (Small world!)
Peter, here it is (pretty lame for California I consider)
1envelope Lipton Recipe Secretes Onion Soup
1 container 16 oz regular or light sour cream
Blend all ingredients; chill at least 2 hours. Serve with your favorite dippers. For a creamier dip, add more sour cream.
go_vols & Nebraska_jewel, Your Runza's sound like the English equivelent as Cornish Pasties. Cornish pasties are made with beef chunks, onions, potatoes & yellow turnips. These were the staple lunch/dinner of the Cornish miners. They are great hot or cold
Makes 16 - six inch pasties
1 Tbsp butter softened
Pre heat oven to 400. Using a pastry brush, coat a large baking sheet with the 1 Tbsp softened butter, set aside.
4 cups all purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups lard (3/4 lb) chilled & cut into 1/4" bits
8 - 10 tablespoons ice water
In a large chilled bowl, combine the flour, salt & lard. Working quickly rub the flour & fat together with your fingerips till it looks like coarse meal. Pour the 8 tablespoons of ice water all at once, toss together, then gather the dough into a ball. If the dough crumbles add up to 2 Tbsp of water, 1 teaspoonful at at time, till particles adher. Dust the pastry with a little flour & wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a circle about 1/4 inch thick. WIth a pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut the dough into 6" rounds using a small plate or pot lid as a guide. Gather the scraps together into a ball, roll out again & cut into 6" rounds as before.
1 cup coarsly chopped white or yellow turnips
2 cups finely diced lean boneless beef, preferably top round
1 cup coarsely chopped onions
2 cups finely dice potatoes
1 cup diced carrots (my mothers addition)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (these have to be highly seasoned with pepper)
1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 Tbsp water
With a large spoon, toss the turnips, beef, onions, potatoes (carrots if using) salt & pepper together. Place about 1/4 cup of the mixture in the center of each pastry round. Moisten the edges of the rounds with a pastry brush dipped in cold water, then fold the rounds in half to enclose the filling completely. Press the seams together firmly & crimp them with your fingers or the tines of a fork. Place the pasties on the prepared baking sheet, & cut two slits about 1" long on the top of each. Brush lightly with the beaten egg/water mixture and bake in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 and bake for 30 minutes, or until the pasties are golden brown. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Thanks GardenDragon! That is one way I haven't had corn. I have made a similar dish with whole kernal corn but never with the bread crumbs. I will have to try this recipe.
I promise to let you know how it tastes.
