Carnitas

Carnitas by Sergio Hernandez

Carnitas are the Mexican version of pulled pork. Braised first in a spicy sauce, pork shoulder is slow cooked until so tender the meat just shreds easily with a fork, then it's roasted at high heat to make crispy browned bits full of flavor.

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry by John Spottiswood

This is more of an Indian than Thai curry, and has a condensed, pungent sauce. It is unusual and really wonderful. Curries are hit or miss with our kids, but they all loved this one (except for the peas...which meant more for me!) We served this with a brown/white rice mix and steamed brocco-flower. The sauce on this is so pungent…

Barbacoa de Cabeza is a slow cooked dish prepared with parts from the head of a cow, such as the cheeks. Popular in South Texas, I've adapted the dish to be cooked using your Slow Cooker, Pressure Cooker, or Smoker/Oven Combo to create this tasty dish.

Pasta a risotto (Risotto-style Pasta)

Pasta a risotto (Risotto-style Pasta) by Frank Fariello

One of the guilty pleasures that I have never, up to now, revealed to a living soul is my penchant for late-night pasta snacks. But not just any pasta, but pastina of the kind usually used for soups, cooked in just enough liquid (usually a mixture of water and milk) so that by the time the liquid has almost evaporated, the pasta if…

Polenta con salsicce e spuntature

Polenta con salsicce e spuntature by Frank Fariello

Rome is not especially known for its love of polenta, perhaps because its winters are relatively mild compared with those up in true polenta country skirting the southern rim of the Alps, but there is one polenta dish you are bound to find if you visit Rome in the cold weather months, polenta with sausages and spareribs simmered in…

Quick Meat Curry

Quick Meat Curry by John Spottiswood

I've been looking for recipes from Indian-American moms who love the rich flavors of Indian food but who need to get meals on the table quickly. So I'm really enjoying the book Saffron to Sassafras written by the Indian Women's Association of Louisiana.in Baton Rouge. There is nothing original about this simple recipe except the…

Shrimp and Tofu with Bok Choy

Shrimp and Tofu with Bok Choy by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a tasty, Chinese inspired dish that our family loved. Ladle it over brown or jasmine rice on a cool evening. My recipe has double the tofu of the original recipe, and I will probably use even more tofu, and less shrimp, the next time around. Feel free to adjust the quantity of each based on your tastes.

Southern Low Country Braised Pig's Feet

Southern Low Country Braised Pig's Feet by Smokinhotchef

This recipe sings low country with high notes. A very significant part of African American heritage and culture. Pig's feet, along with the other 'undesirable' discarded parts, like ears and chittlins' were a staple in the slaves' diets as well as pinto beans and cornbread, also their personal vegetable gardens. This was sustainable…

Atlanta Brisket

Atlanta Brisket by Robyn Savoie

Atlanta Brisket is a braised, southern dish featuring boxed onion soup mix, ketchup, and Atlanta’s own Coca-Cola. In this recipe I replaced the artificial-tasting soup mix with sautéed onions and garlic powder, brown sugar, and dried thyme. To ensure that the brisket was seasoned throughout, pierced it with a fork and salted it…
