Pear & Fig Chutney

Pear & Fig Chutney by Amos Miller

I still had a few pears from the orchard and the figs are almost finished. Why not a Pear & Fig chutney? Easily done! This is everything a chutney should be. The flavors of the pears, combined with the figs' texture and sweetness, the plump raisins and blend of vinegars easily marry to the aromatic spices. And a quality cracked…

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…

MANGO PUDDING

MANGO PUDDING by Linda Tay Esposito

A newer addition to the dim sum repertoire, the mango pudding is influenced by Western desserts techniques (since the Chinese are not too big on desserts! "Not too sweet" is always a sign of a good dessert for the Chinese!). Instead of heavy cream, you can substitute with coconut milk to give it a more tropical flavor.

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

I haven’t found a quicker apple crisp recipe that tastes as good (or better) than oven-baked. Simple prep and fast cooking make this a perfect dessert when you’re short on time. Plus you can make it year round as the microwave won't heat up the kitchen.

This is a super simple dessert that's great for a large or small gathering. I generally use nectarines or peaches and some sort of berries, but cherries plums and apricots will work too.

My Homemade Apple Butter with Apple Schnapps

My Homemade Apple Butter with Apple Schnapps by Robyn Savoie

Two autumn standards, pumpkin and apple. I joined Schnapps Liquor with apple in this lovely spread. Apple Schnapps really adds a surprising element to this. This spread is wonderful on toast, pancakes, waffles and in pumpkin pie! I might experiment one of these days and see how it would work in traditional apple pie

Jamba Juice’s Pomegranate Paradise Smoothie, Delightful and Dairy Free

Jamba Juice’s Pomegranate Paradise Smoothie, Delightful and Dairy Free by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

It’s one of Jamba’s very popular “all fruit” smoothies. Most of their original smoothies contain frozen yogurt or sherbet, but not this one. It’s just juice and frozen fruit! Jamba Juice’s 16 oz size has 240 calories. Ours is very close at 238…

Asian Ginger Apricot Sauce/Glaze

Asian Ginger Apricot Sauce/Glaze by Bob Vincent

This recipe is adapted from one by Julie Campoy in her book Julienne. The original called for more Asian chili garlic sauce which is very spicy. Since my wife doesn't care for really hot spices I cut back on it some. For me the more heat the better; but like they say--"Happy wife, happy life." This sauce is good on almost…

Budwig Diet Smoothie

Budwig Diet Smoothie by John Spottiswood

Someone turned me on to Dr. Johanna Budwig recently. I read a bit about her research and her diet online. While there isn't a lot of hard evidence behind it, she was definitely ahead of her time in recognizing the importance of good fats, and the harmful effects of bad fats, in our modern diets. She strongly encouraged the…
