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…

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.

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans by Amos Miller

This dish is all about FLAVOR. San Antonio and Ft. Worth are my two favorite places to be when in Texas. This recipe was inspired by some dining experiences there and, to my palate, is as Texas as bluebonnets in Spring. Sweet and spicy, richly textured, these beans cry out for anything BBQ'd, grilled or broiled. Corn on the cob,…

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…

Piccalilli Relish

Piccalilli Relish by Salad Foodie

The final harvest of green tomatoes I relegated to a batch of Piccalilli, a relish of East Indian origin. Just can't get enough of that lightly pungent and savory condiment....and it’s way easy to make using a food processor for most of the chopping tasks. Make a batch of this to give as holiday gifts, and to enjoy yourself through…

Mitch's Homemade Dill Pickles

Mitch's Homemade Dill Pickles by Micheline

These homemade dill pickles are so tasty and easy to make. They taste much better than store bought pickles except for Mrs. White's, my favourite. You can make them spicier by adding hot peppers to the brine.

World's Best Roasted Creamed Corn

World's Best Roasted Creamed Corn by Amos Miller

A velvety, rich and extremely flavorful side dish - commonly overlooked. I have adapted this recipe from one of Hubert Keller's. He prefers to use Parmesan cheese, I go with Gruyere. I also have cut back a bit on some of his ingredient amounts and have not gotten any complaints. This takes a little organization, but I found a…

Mario's Kick-Ass Barbecue Sauce

Mario's Kick-Ass Barbecue Sauce by Robyn Savoie

This sauce recipe deserves 5 stars! I adapted the original recipe by adding the zest from the fresh orange and lemon. Also used coarse-grain brown mustard instead of Dijon; your preference. Finally, my hot sauce of choice is Cholula plain but I think the lime flavored would work great too. I Shanghai'd this recipe and the…

Chow-Chow Relish

Chow-Chow Relish by Salad Foodie

Fall's green tomatoes are a perfect base for a batch of chow-chow. This pickled relish or condiment is lip-smacking good on hotdogs, hamburgers, fish, poultry, beans - oh, just everything! This version is a fusion of a friend's recipe and several others I compared it to, and I really like the results! A stash of 6 pints or 12…
