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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

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…

Giggling Gourmet's Sancocho

Giggling Gourmet's Sancocho by Giggling Gourmet

Here is a classical Puerto Rican root veggie dish that I have spent years of refining and studying under the grand guidance of my wife's Mom. This dish is especially superlative during the fall and winter months but also works anytime at all!!! If there is rumor of Sancocho in our family around here the lines grow long quick! Cooking…

Irish Stew for a Crowd

Irish Stew for a Crowd by K. Garner

Tips: -The picture here shows what it looks like with additional broth; add more at will. -The beef browning process is a little flawed. If you aren't particular about a sear on the outside of the pieces, then proceed as directed. -Salt isn't an ingredient, but you must add it, to your liking. Credit goes to the Nesco 18-Qt. Roaster…

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…

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!
