Here are some of my picks for a Derby Day celebration, including some great Kentucky favorites and traditional recipes.
It wouldn't be much of a Derby celebration without frosty ice-cold mint juleps with Kentucky bourbon and fresh mint leaves.
These delicious open-faced turkey sandwiches are a Kentucky tradition. Serve them with a wilted spinach salad, chips, fries, or a light soup.
Sweetened condensed milk make these truffles quick and easy to prepare, and they can be made with a little more bourbon and less vanilla, if desired.
This delicious Kentucky cake is a spice cake made with the addition of blackberry jam and a cooked caramel frosting or cream cheese frosting.
Chocolate chip and pecan pies are a Louisville area favorite, especially around Kentucky Derby time. Serve this delicious pie with a dollop of Bourbon Whipped Cream or your favorite ice cream, and enjoy the races!
Cheese grits are a favorite in Kentucky, as they are throughout the South.
