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…

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…

Pâté with Bacon & Onion

Pâté with Bacon & Onion by Amos Miller

A "pâté" (pah-TAY) is simply a paste of meat and a fat. It can be super fancy, or, as in this recipe, super simple. Guaranteed to impress your guests. Try this next time your are looking for a 'fancy' or special appetizer that requires next to no effort. This is a basic German-style country dish. If you can't obtain a smoked liver…

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…

Uncle Amos' Molasses Cookies

Uncle Amos' Molasses Cookies by Amos Miller

This is an old stand-by, perfect for the holidays, for winter, for enjoying with a glass of milk, or hot coffee, tea or cocoa. The beautiful thing is that these cookies get better everyday - if you can stand to have them around without consuming them! This is a make-the-dough-one-day and bake-the-cookies-the-next project, so…

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie by Amos Miller

I have made this recipe for years. There is none better - or so I've been told by some serious and knowing Creole cooks. And while some may say "Well, it sounds just like a pumpkin pie recipe", they are sorely mistaken. This, my friends, is a Creole Sweet Potato Pie. This is the way to eat your vegetables! Vegetables and…

Sugar Pumpkin Curry Cream Soup

Sugar Pumpkin Curry Cream Soup by Amos Miller

We grow sugar pumpkins and after the harvest, I always break them down and puree them and pop them into the freezer for a long Winter's use. In addition to pies (of course), tarts, cookies, breads, custard and sauce - I love sugar pumpkin soup. As you can imagine, this member of the squash family is somewhat sweeter, has fewer seeds…

Savory Creole Sweet Potato Casserole

Savory Creole Sweet Potato Casserole by Amos Miller

No sweet topping here - this has breadcrumbs & bacon and the Creole twist of Jamaican Pickapeppa Sauce in the yams. It is good to venture outside your comfort zone from time to time - and this is a good way to start! I was set on this culinary path in 1987 when first introduced to Chef Austin Leslie at Chez Helene in New Orleans.…
