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…

This is an authentic Italian spaghetti sauce with meat balls recipe given to me by an Italian friend. It is cooked slowly during 6 to 8 hours but the result is well worth the time and effort.

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…

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…

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!

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…

Cilantro Lime Taco Soup

Cilantro Lime Taco Soup by Robyn Medlin

Well, I may be “Grill Girl” but I still use my stove top from time to time just to make sure I remember how. This week we got hit by a tropical depression so the grilling conditions were less than ideal. However, it was the perfect time to be cozy inside and make this hearty soup. Here’s a little secret you don’t have to tell your…

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…

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder by Salad Foodie

We never wait for fall for this favorite of all chowders, but enjoy it year round. A good way to use up leftover roast chicken, and the ingredients go together quickly for a fast weeknight dinner. Can be lightened by subbing fat-free half and half, or a 12 ounce can evaporated milk for the cream.
