Creole Style Butter Beans

Creole Style Butter Beans by John Spottiswood

Butter beans (another name for Lima beans) are super healthy and flavorful. I've been looking for a simple and flavorful way to cook these, and after a lot of research I found and adapted this delicious recipe. This is flavorful and hearty enough to make a full meal out of, probably accompanied by a salad or green vegetable and some…

MANGO PUDDING

MANGO PUDDING by Linda Tay Esposito

A newer addition to the dim sum repertoire, the mango pudding is influenced by Western desserts techniques (since the Chinese are not too big on desserts! "Not too sweet" is always a sign of a good dessert for the Chinese!). Instead of heavy cream, you can substitute with coconut milk to give it a more tropical flavor.

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is incredibly easy and really tasty. We're healthy eaters, so frying tomatoes isn't the first thing that comes to mind. But you have got to taste these. Amazing! Disclosure: we used fresh tomatoes from our garden that were really flavorful. You may not get the same results with less flavorful tomatoes. We served with…

"Tandoori" grilled chicken by Chris Patil

While this dish isn't made in a traditional Indian clay oven, the yogurt marinade and spice blend can still yield a very authentic-tasting end result on a backyard grill.

Spaetzle

Spaetzle by John Spottiswood

This is a simple and delicious recipe for Spaetzle. My friend Helmut normally does not add oil to his Spaetzle, but we did last night because it said to on the recipe on our Spaetzle maker. I think it helped make the dough slightly easier to work with and less sticky. Feel free to do without if you prefer.

Curry Lentil Soup

Curry Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a surprisingly light and tangy lentil soup. If you are used to thick and heavy lentil soups, this one will surprise you. It's very tasty and was a great complement to the pizza recipe I just put up. This is also adapted from a Greens restaurant recipe.

Fabulous Pork Tenderloin

Fabulous Pork Tenderloin by John Spottiswood

I know that's a bold title, but this Pork Tenderloin is truly phenomenal. The sauce has a mix of Thai and Middle Eastern flavors that is harmonious and unforgettable at the same time. It's also really easy to make but looks and tastes like what you would get in a 4 star restaurant. An all around winner!

The Very Best Meatloaf

The Very Best Meatloaf by Foodiewife

This my family's favorite meatloaf recipe, of all time--and has become my most viewed recipe on my blog! What makes this taste so good is a combination of beef, veal* and pork-- pricier, but it doesn't taste like a giant hamburger! Fresh marjoram and spices, hot sauce and herbs, and a fantastic glaze makes this so good-- you really…

Japanese Teriyaki Chicken

Japanese Teriyaki Chicken by manabu masuda

Buy a bottle of Teriyaki sauce? NO!! It is amazingly easy to make teriyaki sauce at home. All you need is soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. The key ingredient is mirin, which adds shiny look (teri). You can find mirin in Japanese, Korean or Chinese grocery stores .

Potatoes With Parsley and Garlic - Pommes Parsillade

Potatoes With Parsley and Garlic - Pommes Parsillade by John Spottiswood

These are the fantastic potatoes you've probably had in a french bistro...the ones that weren't pommes frites (french fries). They are best served immediately when the crisp exterior contrasts so nicely with the warm, soft interior. We served these with a lentils and sausage recipe that I will post shortly. The combination was…

Alton Brown Lentil Soup

Alton Brown Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from one by Alton Brown. I added spinach, potatoes, and scallions and removed grains of paradise. Our whole family really enjoyed this recipe. I made it alongside an Indian curried lentil soup recipe, and while both were good, this was the hands down winner. If you're looking for a tasty, hearty, and healthy…
