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…

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…

Crock Pot Chile Verde

Crock Pot Chile Verde by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super easy and delicious Chile Verde. We make a great Chile Verde from scratch with fresh tomatillos, but it's a lot of work. If you're tight for time, this recipe is 90% as good with a third the effort. The canned green salsa is made from tomatillos and the combination is really delicious. You can probably find a larger…

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina by John Spottiswood

I slightly adapted thie famous Argentine beef stew to be slightly more flavorful...and thus to my liking. The extra cumin seeds, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper don't take away from the flavor of the meat and vegetables, but they give an added kick that makes this classic family stew extraordinary. We had it at our family reunion,…

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…

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!

Slow Cooker Beef with Barley Soup

Slow Cooker Beef with Barley Soup by John Spottiswood

Cooking the pearl barley a long time gives this soup a nutty flavor and smooth texture. It's very different from the chewy texture you get when cooking regular barley over a shorter period. I adapted this from an America's Test Kitchen recipe and used about half the beef they called for and added the mushrooms. If you have big beef…

Good Luck Black-Eyed Pea Crockpot Chili

Good Luck Black-Eyed Pea Crockpot Chili by Salad Foodie

Ensuring good luck for the New Year means including black-eyed peas on your menu. This chili makes for a hearty crockpot dish with "attitude" for New Year's Eve. I based it on a recipe from Phyllis Good's Fix-it and Forget It Christmas Cookbook, and liked the results so much I won't limit making this just at New Year's. Add corn…

Pork Stew with Wine

Pork Stew with Wine by John Spottiswood

This is another phenomenal recipe that I adapted from a recipe from James Villas in Stews, Bogs, and Burgoos. I still have not found a recipe from this book that is not amazing. Anyway, don't be thrown off by the fruit in this recipe. It blends in with the wine, meat and vegetables to make a luscious combination. This recipe…

Pork Tacos cooked in a spicy green chili sauce

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!

Crockpot Apple Pie

Crockpot Apple Pie by Jann from PA

This is a recipe from a friend. Have to try it so I can cut back on the sugars, as it is too carb heavy for me. But, I am sure it is as yummy as it is easy. Good for potluck!

Slow cooker pork stew - chile verde

Slow cooker pork stew - chile verde by Nancy Miyasaki

This is an easy and tasty version of chile verde that I adapted from a slow cooker cookbook. This keeps very well for 3-4 days, and honestly tastes as good if not better reheated. You can also serve it inside tortillas as a taco or burrito for a second meal. Enjoy!
