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.

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans by Amos Miller

This dish is all about FLAVOR. San Antonio and Ft. Worth are my two favorite places to be when in Texas. This recipe was inspired by some dining experiences there and, to my palate, is as Texas as bluebonnets in Spring. Sweet and spicy, richly textured, these beans cry out for anything BBQ'd, grilled or broiled. Corn on the cob,…

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I originally made this with chuck roasts that I would trim out and dice into 1/4 inch cubes.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…

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!

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"!

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…

Venison Roast with Cranberry Sauce

Venison Roast with Cranberry Sauce by Amos Miller

Venison is lean, healthy meat, and, as most hunters know, can be comparable in flavor and texture to the finest Angus beef - if processed properly in the field, after harvest, and then processed properly into various meat products. Following is a favorite roast recipe - which you can do in your crockpot - that slow cooking will…

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs by Cara Fernicola

I love anything in buffalo sauce. Being the Italian that I am, I thought why not have meatballs in buffalo sauce. Complete success! I recomend serving these on hoagie rolls drizzled with blue cheese or melted sharp cheddar cheese!
