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…

Hummus

Hummus by Frosted Flaker

This is a great snack for any time of year. I personally serve it with Kalamata olives and sometimes even diced cucumber and/or bell pepper. Keep in mind that after blending, fine-tuning the mixture with slightly more tahini and/or lemon juice is often needed (see step 3). As a footnote, tahini is what gives the hummus its creamy…

Cannellini bean hummus by Frosted Flaker

This bean dip is similar to regular hummus, but a little creamier and smoother. Serve it with pita bread, pita crackers or vegetable dippers. It couldn't be easier!

Amazing Red Lentil and Tomato Soup

Amazing Red Lentil and Tomato Soup by John Spottiswood

I never thought I would have a red lentil soup that could match the Turkish red lentil soup that I have been served in Turkish restaurants and that I've learned to make. So I had low expectations for this Indian spiced version. It completely destroyed my expectations and was absolutely delicious. It was great last night, and I had…

Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad

Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad by Denise Sherin

This is a great side dish for picnics and outdoor parties since there is no mayo in it. The cilantro, fresh garlic and lime juice really bring a crisp freshness to this salad/ salsa. It's great on it's own but its also wonderful with fish tacos or as a salsa with corn chips... great over eggs or in an omelet. Cook time refers to…

Bean Gratin

Bean Gratin by John Spottiswood

This delicious and healthy recipe can be made with any variety of white bean, dried or canned. I used dried cannellini beans. Great Northern beans or other white beans will work too. I served this with a delicious Pork Stew, but I think it would go well with any hearty meat or poultry dish. It took me back to our summer visit to…

Gujarati Dal

Gujarati Dal by Mihir Shah

This is comfort food my mom has made for as long as I've been around. She's been able to hook my kids on it; Dal is a healthy way to get protein into their diet. I serve it with some rice and yogurt. It also holds its flavor really well as a leftover snack.
