SHANGHAINESE LION’S HEAD

SHANGHAINESE LION’S HEAD by Linda Tay Esposito

They call it Lion's Head because the meatballs are ye big with manes of soft, tender napa cabbage...looking like a lion. Seriously, in Shanghai, the meatballs are the size of a tennis ball - let's call that a quarter pounder meatball. Slowly braise or steam to get a tender, melt-in-your-mouth meatballs. If you have a small…

Basque Chicken

Basque Chicken by John Spottiswood

I had one of the best meals of my life, while on a wine-tasting trip with my father in Paso Robles, California, at a small restaurant called the 10th St. Basque Cafe. They only offer one seating meal to everyone in the restaurant. But it's a many course affair with some absolutely amazing food. Upon recommendation from another…

Hungarian Gulyas Soup

Hungarian Gulyas Soup by Gyula Sziraczky

This is my really first recipe I've ever "published"...anywhere. So I thought that a traditional, very traditional, Hungarian dish would be appropriate (since I was born in Hungary). The best way to make this soup is to cook it outside in a "bogracs" (a small, round metal pot with handles) over real fire! Try it and you will never…

I absolutely love the mouthwatering taste of short ribs. This preparation, which has a richly flavored gravy chock full of vegetables, is absolutely fantastic. It's also beautiful to serve (don't be discouraged by the picture)! A perfect dish for a dinner party. You're guests will rave about it.

PERSIAN KUFTEH BERENJI

PERSIAN KUFTEH BERENJI by Linda Tay Esposito

Big balls of aromatic fresh herbs, rice, beef and lamb. It's a whole meal by itself. Adding dairy to meatballs make them tender. The Advieh is a Persian spice mix of cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, cloves and rose petals.

Braised Chicken & Sausage with Kale & Spinach

Braised Chicken & Sausage with Kale & Spinach by Bob Vincent

This braised chicken dish is a good choice on a cool night. Add a salad along with crusty bread and your family will surely be full by the end of the meal. Any cut of chicken can be used but if you use breasts be careful not to over cook them as they will dry out. I used garbanzo beans for the legume but others would work as well.…

Spaghetti with Mushroom Herb Clam Sauce

Spaghetti with Mushroom Herb Clam Sauce by Robyn Savoie

One of the simplest and quickest yet most pleasing ways to prepare clams is in this simple sauce and served over pasta. Combined with fresh tomatoes and herbs, the dish has a decidedly summertime cast. The clams to use for dishes such as this are the smallest available - littleneck's. These clams are steamed open with various…

Pork and Shrimp Pot Stickers

Pork and Shrimp Pot Stickers by A.L. Wiebe

This is my version of a really delicious fried dumpling. I have found many recipes for pot stickers over the years, and it seems that no two are alike. I have made adaptations according to what I have on hand and what I like. Also, I use my handy dandy dumpling folder-upper-thingy that I have pictured here. It cost me 50 cents at a…

Pot Roast

Pot Roast by John A. Dryzga

My father had a large repertoire of dishes that he prepared expertly. One of these dishes was by far the most requested, his pot roast. When family or friends were coming to visit, "Is Ray going to make his pot roast?" was the inevitable question. Not a pot roast always HIS pot roast. He was always more than happy to oblige. Now…

Easy Spinach & Artichoke Dip by Clarisa Skinner

Everything's better with Ranch, so it stands to reason that Spinach dip would be too. This is one of the dishes that my entire family expects me to show up with for all gatherings and holidays!
