Ann Landers' Best-Ever Lemon Pie and Meringue — "I got it from a taxi driver in New York at least 20 years ago...Almost everyone knows that you can buy pie shells that are nearly as good as any that are made in your very own kitchen. Here's the recipe again."
Aretha Franklin's Queen of Soul Ham — Aretha Franklin once said to an interviewer that soul "could be many things to many people, because it is a feeling. Painters and artists have soul. Even a chef has soul." This recipe for glazed ham is a longtime favorite of the Franklin family, prepared for holidays, celebrations, or whenever the urge to cook it strikes. Aretha makes her ham the centerpiece of almost all her family gatherings, which are usually served as a buffet with each relative and friend contributing a dish.
