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!

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…

Crock Pot Chile Verde

Crock Pot Chile Verde by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super easy and delicious Chile Verde. We make a great Chile Verde from scratch with fresh tomatillos, but it's a lot of work. If you're tight for time, this recipe is 90% as good with a third the effort. The canned green salsa is made from tomatillos and the combination is really delicious. You can probably find a larger…

Curried Lentil Stew with rice by Nancy Miyasaki

This curried lentil stew is an awesome winter dish. It will warm you and sooth you with its soft texture and rich flavor. Vegetarians can leave out the bacon and ham. Those who relish Indian flavors can double the tumeric, cumin, ginger, and cloves.

Chinese Vegetable Soup

Chinese Vegetable Soup by John Spottiswood

I love to throw this recipe together when I am in the mood for a healthy and spicy meal. Just about every time I go to an Asian grocery store I end up picking up the ingredients for this tasty soup. This is not from any book...just pieced together from the great bowls of soup I've had in hole-in-the-wall chinese restaurants in the…

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina by John Spottiswood

I slightly adapted thie famous Argentine beef stew to be slightly more flavorful...and thus to my liking. The extra cumin seeds, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper don't take away from the flavor of the meat and vegetables, but they give an added kick that makes this classic family stew extraordinary. We had it at our family reunion,…

Khalia - Georgian Beef Stew

Khalia - Georgian Beef Stew by John Spottiswood

This is the incredible, densely flavored beef stew that I enjoyed so much at a Georgian restaurant in St. Petersburg, Russia. I've been searching for this, and finally I nailed it. I had this served in a sizzling cast iron pan in Russia, and while I didn't serve it that way to my dinner guests last night, it tasted just as good.…

Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so! (This was before the era of food safety regulation and inspection - I just made it in our home kitchen!) Dad had taught me how to make his chili, and everyone agreed it was in a class of its…

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Loaded Baked Potato Soup by Foodiewife

This hearty soup has plenty of recipes to be found, I know. I used my friend, Mr. Pressure Cooker, to steam my Russet potatoes in 5 minutes. In the meantime, I cooked bacon, grated sharp cheddar cheese, and thinly sliced green onions-- which is exactly how we like to (occasionally) indulge in baked potatoes. I tweaked my recipe with…

Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home

Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

You’ll love, love, love this rich and hearty soup! It tastes very similar to the pasta e fagioli at Olive Garden. It’s one of the lowest-fat items on the Olive Garden menu, with 2.5 of fat per serving. Our recipe actually contains more calories than theirs does because we’ve added more beans and veggies. The skinny on 1 cup of…
