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…

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.

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…

I took the kids berry picking and ended up with a ton of extra berries. Instead of throwing the berries we couldn't eat away, I decided to make homemade jam out of them. Everyone, from my husband to our baby, has loved this jam! So I thought I would share it with you. It's amazingly easy, so don't be scared to try it. We've had…

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit by Amos Miller

This is one of my absolute favorite berry desserts and comes from Tony Bourdain and Les Halles Restaurant in NYC. I have had the audacity to make just one minor modification to the recipe, but I have no regrets, and neither will you. We grow blueberries all season long at Walnut Ridge Farm, so there are always opportunities to try…

Citrus and Avocado Salad

Citrus and Avocado Salad by John Spottiswood

This was one of my favorite salads growing up. My grandmother would serve it in a butter lettuce leaf cup with just grapefruit, avocado, and a light vinegarette. This version has a bit more too it, and is equally good.

Roasted Carmelized Tomatoes

Roasted Carmelized Tomatoes by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a delicious way to serve ripe, juicy summer tomatoes. Roasting them reduces the tomato liquid to a glaze. They are delicious with any grilled meat or other vegetables.

Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake) with Almond Apple Cake Variation

Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake) with Almond Apple Cake Variation by Salad Foodie

This recipe takes me back over 40 years when I lived in Germany. My landlady Mathilda would treat me to this pastry and one day I asked her for the recipe. She agreed to show me how to make it, if I taught her how to make American lemon meringue pie!…

Guacamole from Oaxaca

Guacamole from Oaxaca by John Spottiswood

This is an easy to make, flavorful, and slightly spicy guacamole. Previously I never blended the onion, garlic and cilantro into a puree as this calls for, and I think it does a better job of distributing the flavors evenly. It also reduces the amount of fine mincing required. Even if you've got a trusted guacamole recipe, you…

Meyer Lemon Honey Vanilla Marmalade

Meyer Lemon Honey Vanilla Marmalade by Amos Miller

If you llike a real marmalade, you will love this fragrantly sensual, sweet, yet tart, pure fruit product on a toasted and buttered English muffin, or as a glaze on a roast bird - cornish, rock, or squab - even chicken! I have broken my recipe down to a basic, low investment, high return process. A minimum of prep time and slow…
