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…

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…

Brett & Bart's favorite spaghetti

Brett & Bart's favorite spaghetti by jeanne templeman

This is an old Italian recipe that I've been cooking for 30 years, and my boys and husband all love it. I got this from my good friend and extraordinary cook Jeannie Puente. The trick for the old Italian flavor is that you cook it for 2 days in a crockpot. I don't leave it on at night for safety. Delicious!

Pork Tacos cooked in a spicy green chili sauce by Spicie Foodie

Yummy tacos in spicy green chili sauce! A couple of days ago I posted a recipe for my green chili salsa, well I had a lot left over and rather than trowing a perfectly good sauce away I looked in refrigerator to see what or how to use it up, other than with chips. Pork , tortillas, cilantro and onions ....Taco night!

Sunday Sugo Rosso (Red Sauce)

Sunday Sugo Rosso (Red Sauce) by Bob Vincent

This recipe is adapted from one in Jeff Smith's book The Frugal Gourmet Cooks Three Ancient Cuisines published in 1989. I modified it a bit to make a richer sauce with more tomato flavor. The original contained much more chicken stock and did not include tomato sauce. I also included some additional spices. I used canned San…

Simply Smoked Potato Wedges

Simply Smoked Potato Wedges by Curt Despres

This is a very simple way to add a side of potato wedges to the smoker while doing the main dish on the smoker. Such as ribs, a nice beef roast, or maybe a whole chicken. This will take you all of 15 minutes to prepare, and about 1 1/2 hours to cook to perfection. Depending on the spices you choose, they can be sweet, salty, sour,…

Sugar Pumpkin Curry Cream Soup by Amos Miller

We grow sugar pumpkins and after the harvest, I always break them down and puree them and pop them into the freezer for a long Winter's use. In addition to pies (of course), tarts, cookies, breads, custard and sauce - I love sugar pumpkin soup. As you can imagine, this member of the squash family is somewhat sweeter, has fewer seeds…

Hot Mulled Cider

Hot Mulled Cider by Carolinaheartstrings

This is a drink The Husband loves and always asks me to make this time of year. I like to get up on Christmas Eve morning and start it in the crockpot and by noon it’s perfect. Nothing better than some hot apple cider while you watch your favorite Christmas movie.
