The Best Chile Rellenos Ever

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever by Mihir Shah

I love chile rellenos and this is a spectacular recipe - I use a little less cheese than you'll probably get in a restaurant, but it "feels" better that way. Feel free to add more cheese (or use different kinds of cheese). Enjoy!

Fish Batter

Fish Batter by Micheline

This homemade batter is light and fluffy and perfect to coat your favourite fish fillets. Tastes like the crispy fish usually found in good fish and chips restaurants. The secret ingredient in this batter is the vinegar, added just before you are ready to coat the fish fillets.

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs by Amos Miller

Eggplant has nothing to do with eggs - unless you dip and bread them. This sauce is a knockout! We grow 'Casper', an heirloom small, long white eggplant. It's mild in flavor and perfectly suited to thick, rich vegetable sauces. When cut into dime-to-quarter-sized disks, I have found Casper to be a perfect addition to other late…

Beef Fajita Best Marinade

Beef Fajita Best Marinade by Amos Miller

This is fast, simple and super delicious! You should have a very hot (very) cast iron griddle or pan to do this right. I preheat the griddle and simultaneously heat a cast iron serving dish so it goes to table with that distinctive 'sizzle'. Be sure to cut the meat, after it has rested, across the grain and as thin as you can. This…

Grilled Flanken Style Korean Short Ribs (Galbi or Kalbi)

Grilled Flanken Style Korean Short Ribs (Galbi or Kalbi) by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from one in Bon Appetit and another from Chef John (foodwishes.blogspot.com). Chef John recommended blending an asian pear into the marinade to help tenderize the meat. I didn't have an asian pear, so I substituted a fuji apple and reduced the sugar slightly. I thought the resulting marinade, and ribs, were…

Low-Fat Spice Rubbed Roast Turkey

Low-Fat Spice Rubbed Roast Turkey by Robyn Savoie

Traditional turkeys are nearly flavorless when you skip the skin and gravy—and that’s where most of the fat and calories lie. This salty-spicy-sweet rub keeps the meat lean but still plenty of flavor. This recipe easily converts to a 3 - 4 pound roasting chicken. Just cut the seasonings in half. The instructions include cooking…

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi by John Spottiswood

This dish offers an amazing collage of flavors blending Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish and West African flavors. Personally, I prefer the marinade and dipping sauce on these kebabs to traditional Indonesian satay. The heavy sweetness of the Indonesian peanut sauce is replaced by a tangy, spicy and slightly sweet mixture of peanuts,…

Tacos Al Carbon

Tacos Al Carbon by John Spottiswood

This is a simple steak taco recipe that emphasizes the flavor of the meat and the grill. You can spice it up by adding extra cumin or a little chili powder, jalapeno, or cayenne if you like, but it is delicious as is. Make sure to chop any additional fixings you like: I used cilantro, avocado and tomato...but they are quite tasty…

Barbecued Wings Charlotte Style by Robyn Savoie

North Carolina prides itself on its barbecue. You can find any number of variations for this classic regional sauce throughout North Carolina's barbecue emporiums. I found this fantastic grilled chicken wing recipe in Mario Batali's "Mario Tailgates NASCAR Style" cookbook published in 2006. The reason it's fantastic, you can…

Easy Herb Chicken in Pastry

Easy Herb Chicken in Pastry by Robyn Savoie

What a great company entree! Chicken breasts top an herb cream cheese base before being wrapped in puff pastry. While they bake, toss a green salad together and serve with a white wine. This recipe uses store bought pastry and spreadable cheese. If you're feeling adventurous, make your own puff pastry. I provided a link to a…
