Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

Cajun Crowder Beans

Cajun Crowder Beans by Amos Miller

Also known as Crowder peas, these delicious little fellas can often be found in frozen form at the store. These are fresh picked right here in Michigan and, like fava beans and so many other seasonal treats, we rush them to the table. Crowders are really a 'Southern' treat and I first enjoyed them when visiting relatives in West…

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…

San Antone Black Bean Salad

San Antone Black Bean Salad by Amos Miller

With friends and family living in the great state of Texas, my frequent visits have always meant new flavor profiles to experience, new ways to express myself in the kitchen and when I am invited out and asked to 'bring something to pass'. I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

Beef Fajita Best Marinade

Beef Fajita Best Marinade by Amos Miller

This is fast, simple and super delicious! You should have a very hot (very) cast iron griddle or pan to do this right. I preheat the griddle and simultaneously heat a cast iron serving dish so it goes to table with that distinctive 'sizzle'. Be sure to cut the meat, after it has rested, across the grain and as thin as you can. This…

Garbage Salad (not really)

Garbage Salad (not really) by Amos Miller

This salad will make the meal, or be the meal. Broccoli, oranges, almonds, raisins, mushrooms, onion & bacon - and a fabulous classic sweet & tangy creamy dressing! Vegetarians can substitute bac-o-bits, or not add a bacon substitute. Throwing together bits and pieces of a variety of items has long been the basis of some great…

Lemon Rosemary Fig Jam

Lemon Rosemary Fig Jam by Amos Miller

The figs are ripe. sweet and the season is short. Fresh rosemary, lemon zest and juice marry perfectly to create a jam to be eaten with bold cheeses as an appetizer. Little work to create, long, slow cooking time and a couple of sterilized jars will carry this treat well into the Winter - provided you can avoid eating it all…

Creole Rice Pudding

Creole Rice Pudding by Amos Miller

NEVER throw day-old rice away! Next time you have that extra-large Chinese take out and you have some of that white rice left over, you have the base of a fabulous rice pudding, New Orleans-style! This is NOT the junk you have to choose from for dessert ("jello, rice pudding, sherbet") after the regrettable meal at the greasy spoon…

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce by Amos Miller

Leaves turning, cooler breezes blowing - time for a comforting pork roast with onions, apples and hard cider. This is a deceptively simple dish that Claire Robinson turned me on to, and is loaded with country flavors. The hard cider reduces down to a savory sauce after Granny Smith apples and sliced onions are caramelized. A very…

Makes your eyes bug out & your stomach say "Howdy!" Fusion can be confusin', so let's get back to an ol' timey American dessert, not found on menus in fancy restaurants. This is just good country food, like I got when I'd have dinner at Nellie Keeling's home up Horse Mill Hollow, near Glasgow, W. Va. Pandowdy is a highly…
