Pear & Fig Chutney

Pear & Fig Chutney by Amos Miller

I still had a few pears from the orchard and the figs are almost finished. Why not a Pear & Fig chutney? Easily done! This is everything a chutney should be. The flavors of the pears, combined with the figs' texture and sweetness, the plump raisins and blend of vinegars easily marry to the aromatic spices. And a quality cracked…

Irish Stew for a Crowd

Irish Stew for a Crowd by K. Garner

Tips: -The picture here shows what it looks like with additional broth; add more at will. -The beef browning process is a little flawed. If you aren't particular about a sear on the outside of the pieces, then proceed as directed. -Salt isn't an ingredient, but you must add it, to your liking. Credit goes to the Nesco 18-Qt. Roaster…

Cajun Crowder Beans

Cajun Crowder Beans by Amos Miller

Also known as Crowder peas, these delicious little fellas can often be found in frozen form at the store. These are fresh picked right here in Michigan and, like fava beans and so many other seasonal treats, we rush them to the table.

Texas Chuck Wagon Chili (with Venison or Beef)

Texas Chuck Wagon Chili (with Venison or Beef) by Amos Miller

I originally made this with chuck roasts that I would trim out and dice into 1/4 inch cubes. Yes, you will form a blister or two - but it is well worth it. In 1987, this chili, I'm pleased to say, was judged best by members of the Chicago Fire Department in a Chicago Chili Cookoff. This is truly a Texas Chuck Wagon Chili: no…

Asian-inspired Mini-Meatballs

Asian-inspired Mini-Meatballs by Amos Miller

A perfect appetizer, great hot or cold, and can be easily made the day before the party in a large crock pot. All you’ll need is toothpicks and tiny plates! I’ve built upon an interesting recipe I found for meatballs with a teriyaki sauce and the inclusion of, yes, dried cranberries. This was so tasty when I first made my…

Apple Brie Appetizer Soup

Apple Brie Appetizer Soup by Sara Gray

Well, this appetizer soup certainly surprised me! It's reminiscent of a Brie appetizer that's garnished with apples, but made into a soup appetizer - a new twist on an old theme. Serve your guests this delicious appetizer and they'll want to skip dinner (just kidding!) It's delicate in nature and the riper the Brie cheese, the…

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs by Cara Fernicola

I love anything in buffalo sauce. Being the Italian that I am, I thought why not have meatballs in buffalo sauce. Complete success! I recomend serving these on hoagie rolls drizzled with blue cheese or melted sharp cheddar cheese!
