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!

Meyer Lemon Yogurt Bundt Cake

Meyer Lemon Yogurt Bundt Cake by Foodiewife

I have made this recipe numerous times, as a loaf cake. I use Non-Fat Greek Yogurt, but any kind of yogurt will work well. The yogurt and oil (instead of butter) is the key to the moistness of the cake. While the cake is still warm, a simple syrup of lemon juice and sugar is poured on and the final touch is a simple lemon glaze.…

The Very Best Meatloaf

The Very Best Meatloaf by Foodiewife

This my family's favorite meatloaf recipe, of all time--and has become my most viewed recipe on my blog! What makes this taste so good is a combination of beef, veal* and pork-- pricier, but it doesn't taste like a giant hamburger! Fresh marjoram and spices, hot sauce and herbs, and a fantastic glaze makes this so good-- you really…

Italian Spinach Soup

Italian Spinach Soup by John Spottiswood

Suprise, surprise. Another amazing recipe adapted from Marcella Hazan's Essential's of Italian Cooking. This is one of my bibles. Not only did I love this spinach soup, but all four of my kids did too! Everyone had mutiple servings. We served it with simple sourdough toast, though Crostini (Italian croutons) is what Marcella…

Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon

Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon by Amos Miller

When the daytime temperature hits around 50 degrees and the evening plunges to 30 or lower, it is time to begin the annual maple syrup processing in our neck of the woods. We use it for many things and one of them is this cornbread. I first had a jalapeno cornbread in Texas, made by my sister's cowboy husband's aunt Netha, and…

This flavorful roast is suitable for any special occasion and the marinade in…

Roasted Potatoes, Carrots, and Onions

Roasted Potatoes, Carrots, and Onions by John Spottiswood

This is a great side dish for roast beef, pork, or lamb. It would also be great with any grilled meat. The recipe is adapted from an America's Test Kitchen recipe that included brussels sprouts and excluded the onions. I love the flavor that the caramelized onions add to the potatoes and to the gravy if you make it, so I think they…

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs by Amos Miller

Eggplant has nothing to do with eggs - unless you dip and bread them. This sauce is a knockout! We grow 'Casper', an heirloom small, long white eggplant. It's mild in flavor and perfectly suited to thick, rich vegetable sauces. When cut into dime-to-quarter-sized disks, I have found Casper to be a perfect addition to other late…

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit by Amos Miller

This is one of my absolute favorite berry desserts and comes from Tony Bourdain and Les Halles Restaurant in NYC. I have had the audacity to make just one minor modification to the recipe, but I have no regrets, and neither will you. We grow blueberries all season long at Walnut Ridge Farm, so there are always opportunities to try…

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!

Salmon with Indian Spices, poached in oil

Salmon with Indian Spices, poached in oil by John Spottiswood

I love salmon and am always looking for creative ways to make it. This is the first time I've tried it with Indian spices and poached in oil (adapted from a recipe in Fine Cooking). Honestly, I thought it was just fabulous. The spices and the cooking method combined made it one of the best salmon dishes I have had. It is amazingly…
