Some wonderful recipes have crossed the Atlantic: Delia's versions of burgers, key lime pie, meatloaf and chef's salad are real culinary highlights.
This lovely turkey recipe is different but we can guarantee that your guests will love it: the sharpness of apricots is the perfect foil for the richness of turkey.
A simple salad this, but one that has gained classic status. It's essential that you use crunchy leaves so that you achieve a balance of creamy dressing, crunchy leaves and croutons and punchy anchovies.
I've suggested two ways of cooking this delicious, spicy main meal: you can either cook it in the traditional way in a slow oven, or (if you want to cut down on gas or electricity) it can be done on top of the stove by using a little more liquid.
Light and lovely, American muffins are a real teatime treat - and you can add different variations to the basic muffin mix depending on what's available or in season.
The four 'stars' in this case are celeriac, carrot, cabbage and spring onion. The result is a very crunchy fresh-tasting coleslaw that can be made the day before, if you cover it with clingfilm and keep it in the refrigerator until needed.
I love New York and, in particular, New York delis, where I always order a hot pastrami sandwich on rye bread and my husband always orders corned-beef hash with a fried egg.
This is a very famous recipe from Florida, where a certain special variety of limes called Key limes are used. Their season is short and there aren't enough grown to export; however, the pie tastes just as good with other varieties of lime.
Serve this hot on a cold winter's day with some buttery jacket potatoes or, if the weather is warm, it's lovely served cold with salads and chutney or pickles.
These tasty, meaty ribs will be popular with all the family. Serve with rice and salad for a quick and easy midweek supper.
Hot tea suits the fickle British climate but in hot and humid parts of America this gorgeous iced tea reigns supreme. It was given to me by my friend Debbie Owen and is authentic and wonderful!
