The perfect fluffy frosting for brownies or chocolate cake. Sweet but not too sweet. Peanut buttery but not greasy. So wonderful and it won't over power your dessert!

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,…

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.

Homemade Manicotti

Homemade Manicotti by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is simple and absolutely delicious. It is a reasonable amount of work, so good to cook for a large party or family gathering. It is fun to prepare with a friend or relative, perhaps with a glass of wine in hand! I adapted this from a recipe cookoff I saw on the Food Network.

Chili Sauce

Chili Sauce by Salad Foodie

Chili sauce is one answer to that bumper tomato harvest. The perky piquant sauce can compliment many classic recipes like meatballs, meatloaf, cutlets, chops, tenders, eggs, potatoes, etc. This recipe is from Ball Blue Book of Canning (2010) and is what I’d deem a standard chili sauce for a wide variety of family uses. It is not…

Butter Chicken - Chicken Makhani

Butter Chicken - Chicken Makhani by John Spottiswood

My kids love Chicken Makhani (Butter Chicken) and Chicken Tikka Masala whenever we go to an Indian buffet. So we tried replicating it at home. It's not a difficult dish to make once you have all the ingredients, and the results are delicious! It also gains flavor in your refrigerator over the next few days, so it's great for…

Rosemary Baked Red Potatoes

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!

In planning our menu this year, we decided to go for the traditional American organic beef burgers with all the fixings, two kinds of coleslaw, James Beards' sour cream slaw, a tart Indian cabbage dish, an Indian style potato salad, mixed wild greens…

Blueberry Cream Cheese Dump Cake

Blueberry Cream Cheese Dump Cake by Carolinaheartstrings

Many of you have probably made or at least heard of a “dump” cake before. It’s where you dump a box of cake mix in a 9×13 pan along with some other ingredients. Well it just so happened that I had some items in my pantry that looked ready to dump so here is my version of a dump cake using two of my dessert faves: blueberries and…

World's best chocolate cupcakes

World's best chocolate cupcakes by Nancy Miyasaki

These cupcakes are adapted from a recipe from a very famous bakery. It's a bit more work than making them from a box, but totally worth it. The rich chocolate flavor of the cake makes them a treat even without frosting.
