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,…

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…

Cumin Rice

Cumin Rice by Joyce Leung

This rice is a delicious mix of cumin and cinnamon. It provides a nice, slightly sweet flavor, that is a perfect complement to any middle eastern dish. The only dishes I would avoid serving this with are sweet dishes with dates, figs, etc. I served it with my Braised Lamb with Beans. It was great!

Chili Sauce

Chili Sauce by Salad Foodie

Chili sauce is one answer to that bumper tomato harvest. The perky piquant sauce can compliment many classic recipes like meatballs, meatloaf, cutlets, chops, tenders, eggs, potatoes, etc. This recipe is from Ball Blue Book of Canning (2010) and is what I’d deem a standard chili sauce for a wide variety of family uses. It is not…

Plum Pineapple Jam

Plum Pineapple Jam by Salad Foodie

I devised this recipe when I wanted a variation of plum jam and thought why not use canned crushed pineapple? The result was beautiful jewel-tone jam with a pleasing fruit combo of flavors and textures. No added commercial pectin here, so if the thought of standing and stirring, oh about a half hour, scares you away, go with the…

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is incredibly easy and really tasty. We're healthy eaters, so frying tomatoes isn't the first thing that comes to mind. But you have got to taste these. Amazing! Disclosure: we used fresh tomatoes from our garden that were really flavorful. You may not get the same results with less flavorful tomatoes. We served with…

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick!

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

Scalloped potatoes cooked in 12 minutes? Compare that to the hour-and-a-half baking time most scalloped potato recipes require, and this recipe may become a year round “fav” for you since the microwave keeps your kitchen cool. Another appeal is the unusual and subtle flavor Swiss cheese gives to this dish. The recipe is based on one…

Pineapple Stuffing by Denise Sherin

My sister-in-law 1st started making pineapple stuffing for our family and it was a perfect addition to our Holiday Ham and Cabbage dinners. We love it, it's a nice change from our usual savory bread stuffing. The kids love it too!

Admittedly, this doesn't capture the crunch outside of the normal method of making persian rice. But if you are just looking for a fluffy and buttery rice to serve with a stew or tagine, this works wonderfully and is super easy.

Butter beans (another name for Lima beans) are super healthy and flavorful. I've been looking for a simple and flavorful way to cook these, and after a lot of research I found and adapted this delicious recipe. This is flavorful and hearty enough to make a full meal out of, probably accompanied by a salad or green vegetable and some…

Cooler Corn

Cooler Corn by Glenn

Large gatherings of people who like corn on the cob requires a couple of lobster pots or a wash tub and a lot of boiling water and patience. Not anymore. Thanks to tailgating technology there is a simple way to make dozens of ears of corn for the hungry revelers.
