Dana ellioTT
Dana currently lives near Indianapolis, Indiana, where she enjoys cooking for friends and family. During the fall Dana looks forward to football season, tailgating parties and game-time snacks such as chicken wings hot of the grill. Her favorite condiment has to be sriracha hot sauce because she sprinkles it on everything! Dana graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale with a Bachelor of Science in culinary management.

Michael Barna
Michael lives in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, with his wife and their two cocker spaniels. The food that reminds Michael of home is his grandmothers Hungarian noodle cake. Its made with sauteed onions, cabbage, herbs, spices and egg noodles. As it cooks, it develops a thick crust and soft center thats so delicious. Michael turned that love of food into a career after earning a degree from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, New York.

Karen Davis
Karen lives with her husband near Des Moines, Iowa. Karens early memories of food often involved her grandmothers holiday cooking. Our family is Scandinavian, she says, so meals were lled with specialty Norwegian and Swedish foods such as meatballs, kringla, lefse, rice pudding and fruit soup. Karen earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Iowa State University in home economics education and educational services in FCS.

Family Favorites

Autumn. In my family, were fall

people. We look forward to that rst day we can bring our cozy sweaters and sweatshirts out of storage. The sun is shining, but that chill can be felt in the air; its crisp and its a great time revisit those hearty recipes that warm the body and soul. Somehow it always feels just right, doesnt it? Not too hot, not too cold, but justright. I love how the cooler temperatures lure me back into to the kitchen, how the weather blankets me in promises born from delicious memories of food, like my moms herb bread (which makes the most amazing grilled cheese sandwich youve ever had in your life!) or her chicken noodle soup (which I still cannot get right, even after years of trying to perfect it). We all have our own triggers that make us think of home. Whether its the smell of something savory baking in the oven, a special holiday meal or a favorite dessert, theres always that one special dish that brings back memories. Food brings people together and its universal. It can be practical, and it can be an expression of love or both. It connects people to each other and to moments in time. Thats why I love to cook and entertain, to bring people together and share in that appetite for life.

But, of course, none of this would be possible without you. So from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you once again for making Taste of Home your most- trusted source for recipes your family will love. Now lets get cooking!

Eggs Benedict


PreP tiMe: 10 Min. cook: 15 Min. MakeS: 4 servinGs

2 egglands Best egg yolks 11/2 tsp. lemon juice 1 tbsp. water 1 pinch pepper 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup butter, melted 1 pinch salt 4 slices turkey bacon 2 whole wheat english muffins 1 tsp. white vinegar 4 egglands Best eggs To PrePare The hoLLaNDaISe SaUCe: 1. Fill the bottom of a double boiler halfway with water. Make sure water does not touch the top pan. Bring water to a slow simmer. If you do not have a double boiler, you can easily create one using a small saucepan and a medium-size heavy glass bowl. Be sure water in the pan does not touch the bottom of the glass bowl. 2. In the top of the double boiler, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, water, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. 3. Add melted butter to yolk mixture, whisking constantly, until all butter is incorporated. Whisk in salt and set aside. If mixture gets too thick, add small amounts of water to thin out. 4. Cover with lid to keep warm and set aside. 5. Brown bacon in a medium-size skillet over medium heat. When done, drain on paper towels and keep warm. 6. Toast English muffins in toaster or toaster oven. To PrePare The PoaCheD eGGS: 7. Fill a large saucepan with 3 inches of water. Bring water to a gentle simmer and add vinegar. 8. Gently crack eggs into simmering water. For best results, crack eggs into a small glass bowl and gently pour or slide eggs out of bowl into simmering water. Repeat for all eggs. 9. Allow eggs to cook for 2-3 minutes. Yolks should still be slightly soft in the center and whites should be fully set. Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon and set on a warm plate. 10. To assemble, top each muffin with 1 slice of bacon followed by 1 poached egg. Drizzle with hollandaise sauce and serve immediately.

I was in seventh grade when my mother rst taught me to make apple pie, and we didnt use store-bought crust. When I had kids of my own, I taught my daughter to do the same. Busy schedules sometimes entice us to turn to prepared crusts, but for the real homemade pie, we go back to this easy recipe. Many people serve warm pie, but we always like our pies well-chilled.

And now for the


Lilli Curtain was nine years old when Taste of Home Culinary Specialist Michael Barna rst met her at one of his Cooking School shows in Barre, Vermont. She followed him to two other shows that fall and thought he was the greatest. Obviously, my heart melted in an instant Michael says. The next year Michael brought Lilli on stage with him to demonstrate one of the Taste of Home recipes. I soon came to realize just how comfortable she was onstage, working the mixer or interacting with the audience. She was a natural. Lillis mom keeps Michael informed of her progress throughout the years. Now, Lilli has her very own personal chef business and even participated at the Kids Culinary Camp in Highgate, Vermont, where she was four to seven years younger than many of her campmates! We see big things in Lillis future and are excited to have her as part of our Taste of Home community!

We couldnt do this without you. Here are just a few of the reasons why you make our events so memorable!

Attendee Spotlight: LaDonna Reed

lilli and Culinary Specialist Michael Barna at a Taste of Home Cooking School show.

LaDonna Reed is an ultimate Taste of Home fan from Ponca City, Oklahoma! She attends a few Cooking School events each year and brings friends and family with her to share the experience. Taste of Home Culinary Specialist Jamie Dunn brought LaDonna onstage during a show in Ponca City to help with a recipe. We had an absolute ball and I was so excited for her community to embrace her. She also cooked several dishes from the show and took them to a local radio station after the event. Jamie regularly receives emails about a new recipe shes tried or a food idea shes excited about. LaDonna lives and breathes home cooking. She and her husband enjoy cooking together and sharing their recipe nds. Her passion for great recipes and Taste of Home is contagious! She never stops sharing her love for Taste of Home; shes always thinking of others and is the embodiment of cooking, sharing and caring.
