    I love May. Not only is it my birthday and Mother’s Day and our anniversary (poor Hubba Bubba – May is a tall order for him), but it’s also the peak season for two of my favorite things. Peonies…

So I’m digging into the archives today to bring you a couple of great little recipes for Derby fare, since the 138th annual Run for the Roses is this Saturday. Here are some suggestions for your celebration.

    First is the diet-busting Kentucky Hot Brown (pdf). Just because the jockeys are keeping themselves at a slim 112 pounds this week doesn’t mean you have to. (HAHA! 112 pounds. Ahhh, that’s funny.)
