Cumin Chicken

Cumin Chicken by John Spottiswood

The combined flavors of cumin and oregano in this seasoning is just phenomenal with poultry. This recipe is adapted from Allen Susser's New World Cuisine. It is one of our favorites. Even as we have moved toward more of a vegetable-centric cuisine, this has remained a staple.

We had it at our family reunion,…

Black Beans with Smoked Bacon (feijoada) by Salad Foodie

More often than not I prepare black beans vegetarian. However I wanted to compare them to a recipe from "South American Cooking: A Step-by-Step Guide to Authentic Dishes Made Easy" (2010).
