Mexican rice by Candice Goodyear

Found this recipe on 'Cooking Classy' I tweaked it a tiny bit and it is amazingly close to the rice I love at mexican restaurants. I was actually amazed.

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans by John Spottiswood

It is rare to have a side dish which everyone keeps reaching for instead of the main dish. That's especially true if its a fairly simple green vegetable side. But these green beans were truly that good. We used packaged, thin french cut green beans from Trader Joes. They are tender and tasty on their own, but I've never had them taste…

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Roasted Potatoes, Carrots, and Onions

Roasted Potatoes, Carrots, and Onions by John Spottiswood

This is a great side dish for roast beef, pork, or lamb. It would also be great with any grilled meat. The recipe is adapted from an America's Test Kitchen recipe that included brussels sprouts and excluded the onions. I love the flavor that the caramelized onions add to the potatoes and to the gravy if you make it, so I think they…

Arancini (Italian Rice Balls)

Arancini (Italian Rice Balls) by lisa

Arancini means "little oranges" in Sicilian and they can be found all over Palermo. Cooked and flavored Arborio rice is formed around a filling of tomato, meat and peas, coated in breadcrumbs and fried until golden brown. When I make them they're about the size of a baseball,but you can make them slightly smaller. . Soft and crispy…

Red beans and rice

Red beans and rice by John Spottiswood

I've adapted this recipe from a number that I have used in the past. You can deviate from this and it is still delicious! Normally, I serve this with a jerk marinated chicken or pork, but it also goes well with grilled fish, steak and many other treats. If you serve it with something that isn't spicy, try adding some of the spices…

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce by John Spottiswood

My father-in-law has become an amazing cook, and he made this as part of our Easter lunch this year with the fabulous pork tenderloin recipe (see linked below). This version isn't gloppy with extra sauce like you find in many Chinese take out places. It's very flavorful but also relatively light and healthful. He made a TON of it,…

A Baked Potato

A Baked Potato by Amos Miller

This is so simple, you'll laugh. It tastes so good, you'll cry. I make this when we are grilling for our guests and friends and they love it. You can also do this in your oven, any time. I know an eminent doctor of Chinese medicine who once told me that it was OK to eat a Big Mac once in a while. You're an adult, adjust things…

This is a simple, tasty side dish to add to your menu. I've adapted it from Marcella Hazan's recipes for other vegetables. It tastes GREAT with Brussel Sprouts. Broccoli is good too.

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style by Amos Miller

I have never been a really big fan of cauliflower, but I love potatoes and spices. This dish, known as 'Alu Ghobi', has long been a favorite vegetable side dish in my kitchen. It is simple, easy to make and very healthy for you. One seldom finds a cauliflower dish on the average restaurant menu. But you need not be a…

Fried Pasta

Fried Pasta by kathy vegas

So what do you do when you have too much leftover pasta? Fried pasta! Fried noodle cakes are popular in a number of cuisines, particularly in Asian cooking. When cooked pasta is fried it becomes crisp and toothsome. Asian noodle cakes typically don’t use a binder; in this Italian-inspired recipe a bit of breadcrumbs, a beaten egg…
