Mr. Food: Lincoln's Lemon Custard Pie

Lemon custard pie was one of Honest Abe's favorites. His first taste of it came from Nancy Breedlove, the owner of a hotel he frequently stayed at. He loved her lemon custard pie so much, he asked her to share the recipe. Our version may not be exactly the one that's been used at the White House for years since, but it's still amazing!

Mr. Food: Ben's Chili Dog

Ben's Chili Bowl has been a landmark restaurant in Washington D.C. since 1958. The restaurant first became famous for its homemade chili dogs.

Our recipe for Ben's Chili Dog is the next best thing to the real version, and your family is going to devour it.
