Southwestern Sweet Potato Casserole

Southwestern Sweet Potato Casserole by John Spottiswood

I adapted this from a Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe that sounded great. My kids aren't big fans of squash...but they do love yams and sweet potatoes. I thought this was wonderful served with warm rice.

Fish Tacos with Lime-cilantro salsa

Fish Tacos with Lime-cilantro salsa by Nancy Miyasaki

Cumin, coriander, and paprika give these fish tacos a wonderfully warm flavor. The tangy sour cream, lime and cilantro sauce contrasts perfectly. Try shrimp for the snapper or romaine in place of cabbage to change it up if you like.

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.

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk by Mihir Shah

I adapted this from a recipe I found in the San Francisco Chronicle. My parents have told me that eating Black-Eyed Peas for the New Year was good luck. I made these for my New Year's Eve party and they were a big hit. Went really well with the Steamed Salmon I prepared.

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”)

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”) by Kevin Olomon

During the off-season, when salmon aren’t readily available up north, Alaskan bears eat mainly nuts and berries. So to track a bear in the woods, you simply look to the forest floor and watch for “bear sign”. Need I say more? Ha! These are SO easy…

Tequila-Flamed Mangoes Over Vanilla Ice Cream

Tequila-Flamed Mangoes Over Vanilla Ice Cream by Marisa Musto

Before the mangoes are flamed they are baked with brown sugar. This process makes them sweet and syrupy. Over vanilla ice cream, this dessert is kind of like bananas foster with mangoes. From the Rick Bayless book, "Mexico One Plate at a Time."
