"Invite to Dinner" - Family Recipes

For this post based on the "Invite to Dinner" prompt, I'm sharing a few recipes that have been passed along in my family and are perennial favorites.

My paternal grandfather, John "Johnny" Egbert Wood, made this delicious caramel cake
whenever we visited.  It was always one of the highlights of our times together.

This side dish has been a staple at my family's holiday dinners for many years.
(We went through an egg substitute phase, but now we just use a regular egg.)

My mom makes excellent bread dressing, and this is her recipe.  Her father,
Andrew Joseph Pampas, Jr., was from New Orleans and would always add
oysters (before cooking) to the dressing he made.

This casserole has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember.
It's delicious right out of the over or as leftovers.  Mom is more
ambitious than I am with the chicken.  I use chopped rotisserie chicken.
