GOW CHOI GAU – SHRIMP & CHIVES DUMPLINGS

GOW CHOI GAU – SHRIMP & CHIVES DUMPLINGS by Linda Tay Esposito

Gow Choi - Chinese chives are stronger in flavor -- more garlicy taste than regular chives -- than regular chives. The flat-leaf, foot-long green is used as a vegetable rather than used as a herb. In this classic dim sum dish, the chives are mixed with shrimp and stuffed in a a dumpling. The crystal dumpling skin is made from…

Rosemary Baked Red Potatoes by Robyn Savoie

The simplest, most elegant side dish. This is the best way to impress company without any extra effort. The rosemary and shallots combine with the poultry or pork dish in the oven to give everyone's sense of smell a work out. Guaranteed to make stomaches grumble. Bon appetite!

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce by Amos Miller

Leaves turning, cooler breezes blowing - time for a comforting pork roast with onions, apples and hard cider. This is a deceptively simple dish that Claire Robinson turned me on to, and is loaded with country flavors. The hard cider reduces down to a savory sauce after Granny Smith apples and sliced onions are caramelized. A very…

Homemade Grilled Flatbread

Homemade Grilled Flatbread by John Spottiswood

I couldn't find any authentic pita bread or other flat bread at my local grocery store, so I decided to try grilling my own. It turned out to be really fun and not too difficult. And the taste was amazing. The hardest part was rolling out the dough (I doubled the recipe). Fortunately, I was able to do that while watching a playoff…

Homemade Marinara

Homemade Marinara by Robyn Savoie

This is a great marinara recipe made from garden fresh tomatoes. Since I don't have those year around I adapted a recipe found with home preserved tomatoes. This is fast, flavorful and my go to tomato sauce for pasta and mozzarella sticks.

Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice by John Spottiswood

I was looking for an improved Mexican Rice recipe, so I adapted this one from the America's Test Kitchen cookbook. I used many of the same ingredients, but instead of baking it, which seemed like a waste of energy, I finished it in my rice cooker. The result was a very flavorful and wonderfully textured mexican rice. Browning the…

Multi-Grain Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional)

Multi-Grain Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional) by Salad Foodie

An all-around favorite in our family. Serve with homemade soup, use for grilled sandwiches and as toast. The variety of grains provides a nutty texture. But if you don’t have all the grains on hand, just sub whole wheat for the same amounts. Can be made conventional yeast method, but I always START with my Toshiba Bread Machine on…

Asian Short Ribs Pressure Cooker Style

Asian Short Ribs Pressure Cooker Style by Foodiewife

I absolutely adore using my electric pressure cooker, because I can shorten most cooking times by 75%. So, if you don't own a pressure cooker, you can adapt this using an oven, or a slow cooker. Either way, it is the sauce that was so delicious. Best of all, this was not a lot of work to put together. Serve this with some sticky rice,…

German Potato Salad Heirloom Recipe

German Potato Salad Heirloom Recipe by Foodiewife

My Mutti was born and raised in Bavaria, and I grew up with this wonderful potato salad. She owned a Bavarian Delicatessen in my hometown of Monterey, CA for years. Every morning, she'd make a fresh batch of her famous potato salad, and it would sell out by noon. Unlike a Northern German version of Hot Potato salad, with lots of…

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip by Amos Miller

Still snowed in and entertaining the stranded! So I tried another Ellie Krieger recipe for a game day or appetizer dip option. Even though Ellie is a registered dietician and a very dedicated health nut, I still like her recipes! Anyway, I love roasted sweet peppers and, having 3 reds on hand, some crumbled feta cheese and a lemon I…

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever by Mihir Shah

I love chile rellenos and this is a spectacular recipe - I use a little less cheese than you'll probably get in a restaurant, but it "feels" better that way. Feel free to add more cheese (or use different kinds of cheese). Enjoy!
