One of the most important things here at Around the Table is sharing delicious recipes and stories that have been submitted by you, our readers. Each month, we choose from dozens of submissions to share recipes that have oftentimes been enjoyed for generations, and that we know readers will love statewide. This month, we are celebrating something extra special—75 years of reader recipes in Kentucky Living.
For this special anniversary issue, we combed through decades of archived magazines to find three recipes to share with you: a main dish, a side and a dessert. It was so special to read the recipes, stories and rich state history in our archives. We found that one thing remains the same, no matter the time period—people love food, and sharing it with others. Thank you for sharing a little slice of your family traditions with us each month for 75 years.
Recipes have been edited and updated.
