African Chicken in Peanut Sauce by John Spottiswood

I first had this in graduate school when a classmate from Ghana cooked it for an International progressive dinner. I fell in love with the combination of sweet peanuts and pungent spices. This is not a flavor you will easily forget, and it will keep you coming back for more!

The combined flavors of cumin and oregano in this seasoning is just phenomenal with poultry. This recipe is adapted from Allen Susser's New World Cuisine. It is one of our favorites. Even as we have moved toward more of a vegetable-centric cuisine, this has remained a staple.

Irish Chocolate Stout Cake

Irish Chocolate Stout Cake by Nancy Miyasaki

I am a lifelong chocoholic and love many types of chocolate cake. Very few have impressed me as much as this chocolate stout cake orignially from the Barrington Brewery in Great Barrington, Mass. The dark stout beer (I use Guiness) gives this cake an intense, not-too-sweet flavor. And it is enough to feed an army!
