Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk by Mihir Shah

I adapted this from a recipe I found in the San Francisco Chronicle. My parents have told me that eating Black-Eyed Peas for the New Year was good luck. I made these for my New Year's Eve party and they were a big hit. Went really well with the Steamed Salmon I prepared.

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce by Amos Miller

Leaves turning, cooler breezes blowing - time for a comforting pork roast with onions, apples and hard cider. This is a deceptively simple dish that Claire Robinson turned me on to, and is loaded with country flavors. The hard cider reduces down to a savory sauce after Granny Smith apples and sliced onions are caramelized. A very…

Ed's Chicago Cocoa Chili ( aka Chocolate Chili )

Ed's Chicago Cocoa Chili ( aka Chocolate Chili ) by Edward Heller

I like cooking and I love chili and chocolate, so if there was any way I could combine the three, I was gonna do it. So here is my quite excellent balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy, which I hope you will enjoy as well. (This recipe has been on recipezaar-dot-com since 2002, where 50 people have posted reviews of my chili…

Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so! (This was before the era of food safety regulation and inspection - I just made it in our home kitchen!) Dad had taught me how to make his chili, and everyone agreed it was in a class of its…

Arroz con Pollo - Yellow Rice and Chicken

Arroz con Pollo - Yellow Rice and Chicken by Salad Foodie

Spanish, Cuban, South American - a traditional and popular ethnic dish, this ranks among my favorite comfort food at its best! Most often accompanied by black beans (see link) and green peas. Rice takes on a yellow cast from that most expensive of all herbs - saffron. My mom-in-law used a flavoring packet called Vigo which contains…

Light Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli Soup

Light Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli Soup by Kristi Rimkus

Who says Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli soup has to be full of extra fat and calories? Simply swap out that heavy cream for potatoes, and full fat cheddar cheese for 2% cheddar, and you have a light and creamy soup with considerably fewer fat and calories.

Polish Sausage and Sauerkraut in sauce

Polish Sausage and Sauerkraut in sauce by Therese

If your not lucky enough to be able to find fresh Polish sausage this can be made with just smoked kielbasa. Personally I put both types of sausages in this dish. I have also cooked this dish in a crockpot after I have cooked the onions, and sausages and fried the bacon in a separate pan then added everything to the crockpot…

Veggie Dumplin Chowder

Veggie Dumplin Chowder by Suzi

I put this recipe on my web site for my daughter, Marie to make for her family, which was easier than telling her how to do it over the phone. The photo is hers and it looks like she added peas. I hate peas so I don't put them in. Traditionally this is as good ole Southern dish better known as Chicken and Dumplings, but being a…

Chili, Ground Beef with Options

Chili, Ground Beef with Options by Just Cookin'

This is a ground beef chili that warms your t.ummy when it's cold outside. It's also good anytime you want chili on hot dogs or another dish. We like things spicy but I know not everyone does. So, I'm gonna put notes that offer options for various ingredients. There's very little actual preparation. Also, because the fat is washed…
