A very basic and classic appetiser which leave the guests wanting more!

Aimiloo's Nana's Meatloaf

This is my Nana's ever famous simple recipe. My friends and family love it, and you can add whatever you like - it's the perfect base.

Chicken & Broccoli Casserol

A US recipe, but easily converted.

Butter Pecan Crème Brulee

This dessert is fantastic. It is a US recipe, but easily converted. When using the Splenda I used packets, which aren't available in the UK, so I estimated 1pkt - 1tablespoon of the pourable kind, and that seemed to work out alright.

New England Clam Chowder

Hot and hearty recipe that will warm you up on cold winter days. Very easy to make.

Baked Omelet

This is a quick and easy meal and really flexible depending on how many carbs you allow yourself. Yummmmmmmmmmmy!

Libby's Pumpkin Pie

Just like back home, this is the recipe from the back of the can, modified for UK ingredients. A big hit with the family here & never-fail recipe.

Southern Biscuits

Old-fashioned Southern biscuits using British ingredients. Not for calorie counters. :)

Thanksgiving Stuffing

Normally used to stuff an 18 lb turkey.

Pumpkin Cake
