St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness by John Spottiswood

This is a great Beef Stew adapted from a recipe by Margaret Johnson. We doubled the recipe, used about half the butter, and added plenty of salt and black pepper. We also cooked it about 5 hours ahead of time and let it sit in the pot for another 3 hours after it was done cooking. It was awesome.

Southern Low Country Braised Pig's Feet

Southern Low Country Braised Pig's Feet by Smokinhotchef

This recipe sings low country with high notes. A very significant part of African American heritage and culture. Pig's feet, along with the other 'undesirable' discarded parts, like ears and chittlins' were a staple in the slaves' diets as well as pinto beans and cornbread, also their personal vegetable gardens. This was sustainable…

Good Ole Fashioned Southern Creecy Greens

Good Ole Fashioned Southern Creecy Greens by Smokinhotchef

A low-country delicacy of sorts, creecy greens are often not found in supermarkets like more common greens i.e. mustard, kale, collard. Supply in the rural country is mainly a matter of who can identify the tangy green by sight and if the 'patch' is large enough to divvy out any to others. Generally a 'mess' of salad will only yield…

Corned Beef & Cabbage with a Tangy Glaze

Corned Beef & Cabbage with a Tangy Glaze by Foodiewife

Who doesn't like to make Corned Beef & Cabbage around St. Patrick's Day? What makes this recipe just a little bit unique is that the brisket is slowly cooked (in a Dutch Oven or a Slow Cooker) in the liquid and spice packet. Once the brisket is removed, a tangy apple cider/brown sugar glaze is poured over it and it's baked, while the…

Lone Star Pork & Cabbage

Lone Star Pork & Cabbage by Tracy Morris

We didn't eat a lot of pork in my house growing up. I grew up thinking that beyond ham and bacon, pork was something that Yankees eat. And yes, we did use that term. Still do in certain parts. I was a little crazy about folks from the northeast as a young woman. I get along peculiarly well with people who hail from The City (as those…

Braised Fennel with White Wine

Braised Fennel with White Wine by La Tavola Marche (farm, inn & cooking school)

Fennel is a versatile vegetable that is often looked over for being too tough. Braising is a great way to soften this hearty root vegetable known to aid in digestion. The acidity & fruitiness of the wine compliments the aniseed flavored fennel and with a good drizzle of olive oil it finishes this dish perfectly. Serve with meat!
