Pear & Fig Chutney

Pear & Fig Chutney by Amos Miller

I still had a few pears from the orchard and the figs are almost finished. Why not a Pear & Fig chutney? Easily done! This is everything a chutney should be. The flavors of the pears, combined with the figs' texture and sweetness, the plump raisins and blend of vinegars easily marry to the aromatic spices. And a quality cracked…

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style by Amos Miller

I have never been a really big fan of cauliflower, but I love potatoes and spices. This dish, known as 'Alu Ghobi', has long been a favorite vegetable side dish in my kitchen. It is simple, easy to make and very healthy for you. One seldom finds a cauliflower dish on the average restaurant menu. But you need not be a…

Cajun Crowder Beans

Cajun Crowder Beans by Amos Miller

Also known as Crowder peas, these delicious little fellas can often be found in frozen form at the store. These are fresh picked right here in Michigan and, like fava beans and so many other seasonal treats, we rush them to the table. Crowders are really a 'Southern' treat and I first enjoyed them when visiting relatives in West…

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans by Amos Miller

This dish is all about FLAVOR. San Antonio and Ft. Worth are my two favorite places to be when in Texas. This recipe was inspired by some dining experiences there and, to my palate, is as Texas as bluebonnets in Spring. Sweet and spicy, richly textured, these beans cry out for anything BBQ'd, grilled or broiled. Corn on the cob,…

Crock Pot Chicken Stew

Crock Pot Chicken Stew by Salad Foodie

The perfect Sunday evening supper, this basic stew is pure comfort fare! What I enjoy particularly are the ease of preparation, large chunks of chicken, and the light yummy gravy. Based on a recipe from Taste of Home Magazine, this recipe uses boneless skinless chicken thighs. I have used a meaty turkey thigh in place of chicken:…

Herbed Duck Broth with Wild Rice

Herbed Duck Broth with Wild Rice by Amos Miller

Take most of one duck, some fresh herbs, the flavors from a few vegetables and simmer. Voila! It's that simple. Almost. This recipe employs one duck, but you will be able to serve each of 6 to 8 diners a lovely bowl of this 'soup course' delight. What we have here is not a consomme, not a soup, and not really, by classical…

Spicy crab gravy

Spicy crab gravy by Moms Times

Crabs though look complicated to be cooked, the actual process is so simple as pictured here and once cooked its taste rules all the seafood. Here you go, the video shows you how easily and comfortably you can clean it with the normal tooth brush to reach its nook and corners. If the crabs are live just immerse them in hot water and…

Texas Chuck Wagon Chili (with Venison or Beef)

Texas Chuck Wagon Chili (with Venison or Beef) by Amos Miller

I originally made this with chuck roasts that I would trim out and dice into 1/4 inch cubes. Yes, you will form a blister or two - but it is well worth it. In 1987, this chili, I'm pleased to say, was judged best by members of the Chicago Fire Department in a Chicago Chili Cookoff. This is truly a Texas Chuck Wagon Chili: no…

File Gumbo / Chez Helene

File Gumbo / Chez Helene by Amos Miller

The late Chef Austin Leslie left a brilliant legacy of Creole dishes and he helped form my approach to the cuisine of NOLA. I follow no other recipe than the one he left me. When a dish is perfect, why stray? Fresh ingredients will tell the tale. Now, as my mentor Paula Wolfert admonishes: "Relax and follow the recipe"!

Asian-inspired Mini-Meatballs

Asian-inspired Mini-Meatballs by Amos Miller

A perfect appetizer, great hot or cold, and can be easily made the day before the party in a large crock pot. All you’ll need is toothpicks and tiny plates! I’ve built upon an interesting recipe I found for meatballs with a teriyaki sauce and the inclusion of, yes, dried cranberries. This was so tasty when I first made my…

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs by Amos Miller

Eggplant has nothing to do with eggs - unless you dip and bread them. This sauce is a knockout! We grow 'Casper', an heirloom small, long white eggplant. It's mild in flavor and perfectly suited to thick, rich vegetable sauces. When cut into dime-to-quarter-sized disks, I have found Casper to be a perfect addition to other late…

Perfect Pear Butter

Perfect Pear Butter by Amos Miller

It's perfect. It's pear. I can't believe it's not butter. More like a fruit spread - or a glaze for fowl and pork! Simple to make and kid's are insane about it, you can obtain pears easily this time of year, which makes preserving a special Autumn treat because we will have Perfect Pear Butter all year long for toast, muffins,…
