St. Patrick's Day Salmon with Leeks

St. Patrick's Day Salmon with Leeks by John Spottiswood

This recipe was also adapted from Margaret Johnson, a great Irish American author and chef. The flavor of the leeks and salmon together is just amazing. And it's a really easy dish. A complete winner!

Cilantro Shrimp

Cilantro Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a simple and absolutely delicious stir-fry shrimp dish. I've been looking for something easy and tasty like this. I have a new staple! I used a red chile sauce that we had on hand instead of the sambal oelek, and I added it selectively after stir frying to my husbands and my plates, but not to the kids plates. It was…

Japanese Teriyaki Chicken

Japanese Teriyaki Chicken by manabu masuda

Buy a bottle of Teriyaki sauce? NO!! It is amazingly easy to make teriyaki sauce at home. All you need is soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. The key ingredient is mirin, which adds shiny look (teri). You can find mirin in Japanese, Korean or Chinese grocery stores .

Brett & Bart's favorite spaghetti

Brett & Bart's favorite spaghetti by jeanne templeman

This is an old Italian recipe that I've been cooking for 30 years, and my boys and husband all love it. I got this from my good friend and extraordinary cook Jeannie Puente. The trick for the old Italian flavor is that you cook it for 2 days in a crockpot. I don't leave it on at night for safety. Delicious!

Hearty Red Lentil Soup

Hearty Red Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a wonderfully flavored soup that our whole family really enjoyed. I'm a huge fan of traditional Turkish Red Lentil soup which has more exotic flavors, but I was impressed by the down home goodness of this soup. I had three medium sized helpings, and even then I nibbled a bit more as I was putting the remainder into the…

Cumin Rice

Cumin Rice by Joyce Leung

This rice is a delicious mix of cumin and cinnamon. It provides a nice, slightly sweet flavor, that is a perfect complement to any middle eastern dish. The only dishes I would avoid serving this with are sweet dishes with dates, figs, etc. I served it with my Braised Lamb with Beans. It was great!

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.

Halloween Finger Cookies

Halloween Finger Cookies by John Spottiswood

These taste like a rich biscotti. But the best thing about them is the spooky Halloween look! Try serving them at a Halloween party or bringing them to work. It feels creepy to eat them!

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…

Romaine Salad with Creamy Basil Dressing

Romaine Salad with Creamy Basil Dressing by John Spottiswood

The crisp inner leaves of romaine lettuce goes wonderfully with this light and creamy basil-infused dressing. We served the same dressing the following night with a more traditional mixed green salad with lettuce, avocado, tomato and cucumber, and that was delicious too. If you're looking for a tasty alternative to a caesar dressing,…

Authentic Italian Spaghetti Sauce with meatballs by Micheline

This is an authentic Italian spaghetti sauce with meat balls recipe given to me by an Italian friend. It is cooked slowly during 6 to 8 hours but the result is well worth the time and effort.

Miso Salmon (Dengaku)

Miso Salmon (Dengaku) by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a wonderful, mildly flavored dish. Japanese food is comfort food for me, and nothing goes down more smoothly than this dish. The sweet and salty miso glaze brings out the best in the salmon without overpowering it. Our kids love it too!

Quick Meat Curry

Quick Meat Curry by John Spottiswood

I've been looking for recipes from Indian-American moms who love the rich flavors of Indian food but who need to get meals on the table quickly. So I'm really enjoying the book Saffron to Sassafras written by the Indian Women's Association of Louisiana.in Baton Rouge. There is nothing original about this simple recipe except the…
