Shhhhh, folks. This is the fixin's for the party.

Main Course

Pan-Fried Porterhouse Steaks with Lynchburg Pan Sauce

If the weather is lousy outside, then pan-frying a thick porterhouse steak right in the kitchen is a great way to go. The key to success is a big cast-iron skillet. It'll cause a good bit of smoke in the kitchen, but it's worth it.

Let the cooked steaks rest on a board while you make the special Lynchburg pan sauce.

2 porterhouse steaks (1 to 1 1/4 pounds each), cut 1 to 1 1/4 inches thick

Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

Dry steaks; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat for ten minutes. Coat with oil. Place steaks in pan; cook, until seared and brown on one side, about 5 minutes. Turn and cook 5 minutes on the other side for medium-rare; 6 minutes for medium. Remove from skillet. Melt butter in skillet; stir in Worcestershire sauce and whiskey. Bring to a boil; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Slice steaks, if desired. Pour sauce over steaks and serve.

Side Dishes

Jack Daniel's Candied Apples

6 cups peeled and sliced apples

1/4 cup butter

2 to 3 cups sugar

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, to taste

Combine apples, butter and sugar in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat until apples are tender. Stir in Jack Daniel's. Cook an additional 5 minutes. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Tipsy Sweet Potatoes

4 large sweet potatoes

1/4 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

1/2 cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted

3 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 cup dark corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels

1 cup whole pecans

1 10-inch pie crust

Jack's Birthday Tennessee Whiskey Balls

They don't call these classic holiday treats bourbon balls in Lynchburg!

2 cups toasted chopped pecans

1 box (12 ounces) vanilla wafers, finely crushed (about 2 3/4 cups)

2 cups powdered sugar, plus more to roll cookies in

1/2 cup cocoa

1/4 cup corn syrup
