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…

Pâté with Bacon & Onion

Pâté with Bacon & Onion by Amos Miller

A "pâté" (pah-TAY) is simply a paste of meat and a fat. It can be super fancy, or, as in this recipe, super simple. Guaranteed to impress your guests. Try this next time your are looking for a 'fancy' or special appetizer that requires next to no effort. This is a basic German-style country dish. If you can't obtain a smoked liver…

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. Crowders are really a 'Southern' treat and I first enjoyed them when visiting relatives in West…

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip by Amos Miller

Still snowed in and entertaining the stranded! So I tried another Ellie Krieger recipe for a game day or appetizer dip option. Even though Ellie is a registered dietician and a very dedicated health nut, I still like her recipes! Anyway, I love roasted sweet peppers and, having 3 reds on hand, some crumbled feta cheese and a lemon I…

Gluten Free Quinoa Tabouli

Gluten Free Quinoa Tabouli by JoannE.

*Can't find Red Quinoa no problem - The red quinoa for this recipe because it retains a firmer texture after cooking but traditional quinoa will be just as tasty!

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce by Amos Miller

Leaves turning, cooler breezes blowing - time for a comforting pork roast with onions, apples and hard cider. This is a deceptively simple dish that Claire Robinson turned me on to, and is loaded with country flavors. The hard cider reduces down to a savory sauce after Granny Smith apples and sliced onions are caramelized. A very…

Ellie's Black Bean & Chipotle Dip

Ellie's Black Bean & Chipotle Dip by Amos Miller

Thanks to Ellie Kreiger for this healthy and zippy dip - just the thing on a day when you're cooped up, watching movies or a sporting event. It comes together quickly and is ready to enjoy with your favorite chips. I like it as a side with Chicken Enchiladas Suizas.

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…

Zippy Chicken Salad in Reed Avocado

Zippy Chicken Salad in Reed Avocado by Amos Miller

Everyone has a meatloaf recipe - and everyone has a chicken salad recipe. Here's mine - simple, elegant, healthy (pretty much) and very tasty. I don't present this as anything other than a great entree using some elements grown on the farm. It is sort of a fruity, curried Waldorf Salad...(it' s also great served on a tender roll, or…

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…

Gluten Free Pepperoni Rolls

Gluten Free Pepperoni Rolls by Shawn Christopher

I love pepperoni rolls. There is a certain type of pepperoni roll that you can get in nearly every store in West Virginia, but nowhere else in the united states. I love the taste of them. I tried and tried to make them exactly like the West Virginia pepperoni rolls but haven't got it perfected yet so here is a creation of my own.…

Chicken Wings or Drummies - Orange Glazed

Chicken Wings or Drummies - Orange Glazed by Amos Miller

Just make PLENTY for those Bowl Games! I had one trim couple eat 4 lbs and then look for more. This is very simple, but does take some lapsed time because I bake the wings, so the skin is crisp, yet the meat is moist and very tender. No eggs, flour, oil or milk are used in this recipe. This recipe makes enough glaze to coat…
