1.  Twice-Baked Potatoes: Loaded with creamy and cheesy fixings, Trisha’s twice-baked potatoes make for perfect game-day food. Whip the cooked and cooled potato flesh with sour cream, cheddar and butter for a flavorful filling, then bake in the potato-skin shell and garnish with crisp bacon and fresh green onion.

2.  Un-Fried Chicken: Though fried chicken is loved for having a crispy, golden exterior and succulent interior, it often gets flack for being heavy. Trisha puts a healthy twist on her recipe by baking the buttermilk-battered chicken — laced with hot sauce for a spicy kick — instead of frying it.

3.  Banana Pudding: To prepare her big-batch dessert, Trisha makes a quick stovetop vanilla pudding, then layers it with sweet vanilla wafers and sliced bananas. She tops this old-fashioned dessert with a three-ingredient meringue for a whimsical presentation.

4.  Pimento Cheese Spread: It takes just three ingredients and 10 minutes to whip up Trisha’s pimento cheese spread. Puree jarred pimento peppers until smooth, and then mix with sharp cheddar cheese and mayonnaise until creamy. Trisha spreads the cheese atop white sandwich bread, which she then cuts into triangles (without the crust) for a picnic-ready meal.

6.  Blueberry Pancakes: To give her pancakes a twist, Trisha adds sour cream to the batter for moistness and lemon zest for a citrusy tang. Fold the blueberries into the pancake batter and then cook until golden brown for a burst of fruity flavor in every bite.

7.  Slow Cooker Georgia Pulled Pork Barbecue: A finger-licking-good sandwich, Trisha’s barbecue pulled pork is a go-to meal for hectic days, because the slow cooker does most of the work for you. Simply pour the vinegar-based sauce over the paprika-rubbed meat and set the slow cooker on low. When you return hours later, you’ll have pork that’s fall-apart tender.

8.  Deviled Eggs: Trisha uses her grandmother’s trick to making deviled eggs: She flips the eggs upside down the night before hard-boiling them, so that the yolk will center and create the perfect base. Once the eggs are cooked and cooled, mash the yolks with a trio of creamy, tangy condiments — mustard, mayonnaise and relish — and then spoon the mixture back into the egg-white halves.

9.  Pecan Pie: If you find homemade desserts intimidating, try Trisha’s recipe for pecan pie: She uses store-bought pie crust as a shortcut. For the filling, whisk together a simple mixture that features brown sugar for a rich caramel flavor and chopped pecans for crunch.

10.  Daddy’s Biscuits: Trisha uses her dad’s recipe for biscuits, which quickly come together with flour, buttermilk and vegetable shortening. Top with a decadent chocolate gravy for a sweet twist on a Southern classic.
