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…

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…

Green Beans with Basil and Tomato

Green Beans with Basil and Tomato by John Spottiswood

This is an attractive and tasty side dish. The butter, basil and tomato adds a nice flavor boost to the green beans. I've made them with garlic salt and regular kosher salt, both are delicious. If you want to spice it up, add more black pepper or substitute crushed red pepper for the black pepper.

Homemade Refried Beans

Homemade Refried Beans by John Spottiswood

I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered. But this recipe is simple and it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. I figure my kids are the true test, since they aren't that…

Honey-Ginger Glazed Carrots

Honey-Ginger Glazed Carrots by John Spottiswood

This is a standard side dish for us when we're serving an asian-inspired meal. It's also great with any grilled meat. The honey brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots and the ginger gives a bit of spice to balance the sweetness. Orange zest and juice gives a nice acidity to the dish. If you make this, it will likely become…

Channa Masala by John Spottiswood

This is one of my favorite Indian vegetarian dishes. I always load up on a few helpings when I'm at the buffet! Chick-peas are great for you, and filling too. This fabulous recipe is adapted from a classic by Madhur Jaffrey. I made it a bit more healthy. Use more butter and less oil if you want a richer flavor and don't care…

Mexican Corn and Potatoes

Mexican Corn and Potatoes by Robyn Savoie

In the Summer roast the fresh corn and while doing that roast those Serrano's. The additional smoky flavor will only enhance this. I like to serve this as side during a picnic because you can prepare this the day before. First, leave the onions raw. Spray a disposable aluminum pan with non-stick cooking spray. Toss all the…
