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!

Alton Brown Lentil Soup

Alton Brown Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from one by Alton Brown. I added spinach, potatoes, and scallions and removed grains of paradise. Our whole family really enjoyed this recipe. I made it alongside an Indian curried lentil soup recipe, and while both were good, this was the hands down winner. If you're looking for a tasty, hearty, and healthy…

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.

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…

Creole Style Butter Beans

Creole Style Butter Beans by John Spottiswood

Butter beans (another name for Lima beans) are super healthy and flavorful. I've been looking for a simple and flavorful way to cook these, and after a lot of research I found and adapted this delicious recipe.

Pork & Chickpea Stew by John Spottiswood

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.

Calico Ham and Bean Soup

Calico Ham and Bean Soup by Robyn Savoie

This is ever so simple and yet a wonderful hearty soup. You have your basic vegetables, the onions, celery, bell peppers and carrots in addition to the ham and beans. You do need a bit of time to let it simmer but it is really worth the wait. Despite being so simple this has to be one of the best soups around and it is pure comfort…

Homemade Refried Beans

Homemade Refried Beans by John Spottiswood

I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered. But this recipe is simple and it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. I figure my kids are the true test, since they aren't that…
