Scouse

Scouse by Colin Callan

Scouse was brought to Liverpool by Northern European sailors, it was originally called Labskause or lobskause. This was finally shortened to Skause and over time the spelling changed to the more Anglicised version we know and love today, Scouse. Interesting Note: The Danish name is "skipper labskovs". In Swedish, it's "kallops".…

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Marie Biscuit Cake

Marie Biscuit Cake by louise

This no cook dessert is a favourite of mine. The biscuits used are 'Morning coffee' or 'Marie biscuits'. You can also use the LU Cookies or Rich Tea Biscuits that can be bought from Amazon. I have not seen the Marie or Morning Coffee type in the US except at the PBX on an armed forces base! They have all sorts of European food!…

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…

Japanese Street Crepes

Japanese Street Crepes by LittleJapanMama

Crepes are a big hit with young people in Japan. The paper-thin crepes are made fresh and rolled into a cone shape so they can be eaten on the go. Fillings include anything from strawberries and creme caramel, to tuna and lettuce. This is my version, made on a regular frypan at home. See my littlejapanmama link below for step-by-step…

Simple Pan-fried Fish with Indian Spices

Simple Pan-fried Fish with Indian Spices by John Spottiswood

This is a simple dish I throw together with fresh white fish fillets (typically Swai, Tilapia, Catfish, or Orange Roughy). It's easy to make and our whole family loves it. I know it seems crazy to give this four and a half stars, but it's a really great combination of flavors. Try this with rice and a vegetable side dish or salad,…

Best Butterball Turkey and Gravy Ever

Best Butterball Turkey and Gravy Ever by myra byanka

A friend has an oven too small to cook a large turkey, so she gave me her 22 lb. Premium Butterball to cook. Since Butterballs come pre-basted with a saltwater solution, there's no need to brine or salt it. I decided to cook it on a low heat and it turned out fabulous.

CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style

CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style by Amos Miller

My buddy, Ed, of Puerto Rican descent, spent his time in the Air Force in Central and South America. Ed's favorite dish: ceviche! He tells endless tales of trying ceviche, which is seafoods 'cooked' in nothing but citrus juice. Ed always said that the ceviche he would eat by the gallon, if he could get it, was that he had in Costa…

My favorite Stuffing without Meat

My favorite Stuffing without Meat by John Spottiswood

This is a wonderful stuffing recipe that is adapted from one by James Beard. It is truly delicious! You could reduce on the butter and oil, but I think it's worth it!
