If you're interested in learning (and trying out) some state specific recipes, go here. This site is really nice and you can find tons of recipes - I'm talking old and authentic - that you might be able to use if you're like me and create most of your meals from scratch. I live in Michigan so I found lots of cherry recipes. I also copied a bunch of pastie ones as well, which is a dish they eat up in the Upper Peninsula a lot. Jeff loves them; I don't. It'll have to be a rare treat for him since they are usually smothered in gravy. As an aside, they're also a popular item in England.
I also browsed Indiana a lot since that's really home for me; I grew up there and my family all lives there. I'm even eager to try out some southern recipes since Jeff has family from Kentucky and Tennessee.
