Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar by Lynn Yamamoto Dalman

This is fresh, healthy and delicious. People love it, even kids. You can make it ahead, so it's great for a summer party. Serve it with scoop-shaped tortilla chips, or have it on the side as a relish. I add extra cilantro, because there can never be too much cilantro!

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…

Texas Caviar (Bean & Corn Salsa or Salad)

Texas Caviar (Bean & Corn Salsa or Salad) by Salad Foodie

If I need black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year's day, I prefer to get them in Texas Caviar....a.k.a. Cowboy Caviar.....a.k.a. Southern Caviar...a.k.a. Bean and Corn Salsa. There's as many names for this as there are variations. This makes 8 cups and serves a huge hungry crowd - think Super Bowl Sunday. It also keeps well.…

Texas Style Pinto Beans

Texas Style Pinto Beans by Sergio Hernandez

Slightly spicy cumin, cilantro and jalapenos lend a Southwestern Tex/Mex flair to tender pinto beans in this recipe. I've added a ham hock and/or bacon for added flavor. Goes well with the spanish rice recipe I've posted.

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,…

Super easy to make. Toss all ingredients in the pot (or slow cooker) and forget about it until dinner time. Healthy...and is good vegetarian with vegetable broth and no pork.

Curried Lentil Stew with rice

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.

Hearty Red Lentil Soup

Hearty Red Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a wonderfully flavored soup that our whole family really enjoyed. I'm a huge fan of traditional Turkish Red Lentil soup which has more exotic flavors, but I was impressed by the down home goodness of this soup. I had three medium sized helpings, and even then I nibbled a bit more as I was putting the remainder into the…

Vermont Baked Beans

Vermont Baked Beans by Micheline

These are my favourite baked beans because they remain white when cooked and just sweet enough. I always double the recipe. Freezes well.

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans by Amos Miller

There are two ways to go here: smoked meats (sausage, rib tips, neck bones, ham, country bacon), OR pickled meat. Either way, you'll obtain a rich flavor profile and a satisfying meal. One, warm, soft, and smokey; one tangy, slightly sharp, sort of barbeque-y, but it's always PORK and beans in the end.. My culinary mentor, whom I…
