Harira Soup

Harira Soup by John Spottiswood

This is the traditional soup served at sunset to break the daily fast observed during the 30 days of Ramadan. Recipes vary from family to family throughout Morocco and the rest of North Africa. I'm particularly fond of this version. If you have not had this before, you MUST try it. It is truly delicious!

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

This is a recipe for the dough of the fluffy white skins of the char siu bao and the shanghai cabbage buns. It's truly versatile -- you can use the same dough and fill it with sweetened mashed red beans or lotus seeds for a dessert treat. Or just steam it by itself to turn it into "man tou" essentially steamed white bread that is…

Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Seasonings

Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Seasonings by John Spottiswood

This was a wonderful leg of lamb that I cooked for a Holiday gathering this year. I took a base recipe for Moroccan Roast Lamb from one of my favorite cookbooks - Recipes from Morocco by Sufo. I then added roast potatoes and created a gravy from the drippings. It couldn't have come out much better. Everyone raved about it. I used…

Banana Split Pie

Banana Split Pie by Mary Joseph

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of a baker, but this is an old family recipe that has been gratiously "given" to me for use in my cookbook so I want to share it here with you all. Its one of the very few dessert recipes I make and its addicting, so look out. To this day if I show up to Thanksgiving without this people are…

Stuffed Mushrooms with Feta & Spinach

Stuffed Mushrooms with Feta & Spinach by david spottiswood

I adapted these mushrooms from a bon appetit recipe. They are delicious and always a crowd pleaser. They have a little zing from the crushed red pepper flakes. Great served as a passed hors d'oeuvre. We've taken these to other people's houses as an appetizer (just baking the last 10 minutes there) and they always get rave reviews.

Favorite Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional)

Favorite Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional) by Salad Foodie

My whole wheat bread of choice. Can be made conventional yeast method, but I always START with my Toshiba Bread Machine on the whole wheat setting, then INTERRUPT the cycle just before baking begins; that way I have a built-in bread mixer, kneader and proof oven, but I get to shape and control the baking to perfection, and have bread…

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…
