The March edition of The Dish is serving up Saxon’s own Leigh Rathje’s favorite foods.

When she’s cooking for friends and family she enjoys making Dorothy’s Chicken Divan “Hot Dish.” “It’s my Grandmother’s recipe, so I only make this when close friends and family are over,” she shared. In Minnesota casseroles are called Hot Dishes, “so I like to share this funny fact with new friends,” Rathje says. According to Leigh this Chicken Divan is best enjoyed around the dinner table, because you’re going to want a second serving!

2 Packages of 10oz Frozen broccoli spears

1 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons of white wine
½ or 1 cup of fine bread crumbs
2 tablespoons of butter

On a night out, you can find her at Oak Tavern in Cincinatti, Ohio. She enjoys the unassuming digs of this typical, dive sports bar. “Nothing about the inside is special or even remotely looks like they serve food,” she says. You come there to watch sports and eat chicken wings. And CHICKEN WINGS INDEED!  At the Oak Tavern they smoke their large chicken wings all day, so you can smell them from the streets. The wings come smoked and lightly seasoned, then handed to you with an assortment of 6 different flavored sauces

She prefers the Carolina Gold, but everyone knows their secret spicy berry sauce is where it’s at!
