African Chicken in Peanut Sauce

African Chicken in Peanut Sauce by John Spottiswood

I first had this in graduate school when a classmate from Ghana cooked it for an International progressive dinner. I fell in love with the combination of sweet peanuts and pungent spices. This is not a flavor you will easily forget, and it will keep you coming back for more!

Tex-Mex Meatball Soup

Tex-Mex Meatball Soup by Salad Foodie

A hearty and colorful soup which can be cooked in about 30 minutes. Choose your meat type - beef, sausage, poultry, or a blend if preferred. Using crushed tortilla chips in meatball mixture is a nice way to bump up the corn flavor as well as use up the chip crumbles too small to serve.

Minestrone Romagna Style

Minestrone Romagna Style by John Spottiswood

This is the way minestrone is made in Romagna. It's not a lot of prep time, but you simmer the soup for a long time until all of the vegetable flavors mellow into one mild but delicious soup. The subtle flavors of this soup are even more delicious the next day, so it is a good dish to prepare in advance of guests arriving for a…
