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…

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…

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…

Amish Pork Roast w/ apples and sauerkraut (crockpot) by Denise Sherin

Growing up in Pennsylvania I had the pleasure of being able to go to Lancaster Pa, which was a huge Amish community. There food is simple and delicious. This is a favorite of mine. There is a Tablespoon of cinnamon in this recipe, it's not a mistake, it sounds like alot but it does not over power this dish.

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…
