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…

Herb and Spice Brine Leg of Lamb

Herb and Spice Brine Leg of Lamb by Smokinhotchef

This may be one of my best creations yet. There are an array of herbs and spices, most from my own garden, that help bring this leg of lamb up to that of a prized dish in any locale. The lamb is seasoned in a brine refrigerated for up to 36 hours, so it is essentially a make ahead dish. There is no need for further seasoning…

Mom's Homemade Peach Dumplings

Mom's Homemade Peach Dumplings by Syi

This recipe was given to me by my mom. When it comes to pies & cobblers, I'm considered a "crust snatcher" as I love the crusts more than the fruit or filling; and when I see a cobbler, I'll cut into it and lift out all of the crust and just leave the fruit and juice for everyone else (if given the chance)! LOL!! So this recipe is…

Mom's Chili

Mom's Chili by Syi

This is a nod to my mom. She has been making this chili since I was a little girl. It's a pretty simple, fairly quick & tasty recipe. My favorite variation is to add cooked, cut spaghetti at the end (spaghetti noodles that come already pre-cut to the size of macaroni). For a tasty variation, I like adding chopped zucchini and…
