Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Whisk pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, spices and salt in medium bowl until smooth. Pour into crust. Bake 15 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted 1 inch from crust comes out clean. Cool. Garnish as desired. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.
1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus more for topping
1 (14-oz.) pkg. herb-seasoned stuffing mix (such as Pepperidge Farm)
10 cups chicken broth
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Prepare the Cornbread: Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine self-rising cornmeal mix and, if desired, sugar in a large bowl. Stir together eggs and buttermilk in a medium bowl; add to cornmeal mixture, stirring just until moistened.
Heat butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet in preheated oven 5 minutes. Stir melted butter into batter. Pour batter into hot skillet.
Bake in preheated oven until cornbread is golden, about 25 minutes; cool in skillet 20 minutes. Remove from skillet to a wire rack, and cool completely, 20 to 30 more minutes. Crumble cornbread. Freeze in large heavy-duty ziplock plastic bag up to 1 month, if desired. Thaw in refrigerator.
Prepare the Dressing: Preheat oven to 350°F. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high; add onion and celery, and cook, stirring often, until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Add sage, thyme, and rosemary, and cook, stirring often, 1 minute.
Stir together eggs in a very large bowl; stir in crumbled Cornbread, onion mixture, pecans, flat-leaf parsley, stuffing mix, chicken broth, black pepper, and kosher salt until blended.
Spoon mixture into 2 lightly greased 13- x 9-inch (3-quart) baking dishes. Cover and freeze up to 3 months, if desired; thaw in refrigerator 24 hours. (Uncover and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before baking.)
Bake, uncovered, in preheated oven until lightly browned and cooked through, 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Garnish with additional chopped fresh parsley.
Make the crumb topping: Mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in a bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until the consistency resembles cornmeal.
Combine molasses, water and baking soda and pour into pastry shell. Spoon the crumb mixture evenly over the top. Bake 15 minutes, lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake 20 minutes longer, or until set and firm.
1 small baguette, sliced diagonally 3/4 inch thick
Freshly grated parmesan cheese, for serving
In a large, enameled cast-iron casserole, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the onion, carrot and minced garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add the drained black-eyed peas, ham hocks, chicken stock and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to very low, cover partially and cook until the beans are tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Season generously with salt and pepper and let stand for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°. Toast the bread slices in the oven for about 8 minutes, until golden. Brush lightly with olive oil and rub lightly with the garlic clove.
Drain the black-eyed peas; discard the ham hocks and bay leaves. Transfer the peas to a serving bowl. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Serve the black-eyed peas with the garlic toasts, passing grated cheese at the table.
Black-eyed peas can be made up to four days in advance.
Whisk all ingredients for the vinaigrette together in a bowl; set aside.
Toss shrimp with pepper, paprika, salt, and cayenne.
Heat oil in a large saute pan over high. Add the shrimp and cook until brown on one side, about 1 minute. Turn shrimp, saute another 30 seconds, then deglaze with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette; saute until shrimp are cooked through.
To serve, arrange 2 pineapple slices and some of the avocado on each serving plate. Drizzle with vinaigrette, then top with 4 shrimp.
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towel, reserving one tablespoon drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon; set aside. Stir bread crumbs into the reserved drippings. Transfer to a small bowl; cover and chill until needed.
Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate; set aside. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with a fork until foamy. Stir in crumbled bacon, hash brown potatoes, Swiss cheese, cottage cheese, milk, 1/4 cup green onions, salt, black pepper, and hot sauce. Pour mixture into the prepared pie plate. Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours.
Sprinkle pie with bread crumb mixture. Bake, uncovered, in a preheated 325 degree oven for about 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. If desired, sprinkle pie with additional sliced green onions. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
