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…

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars!

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars! by Salad Foodie

This recipe has been circulating around the Internet as “Lemon Brownies”, but I think it deserves a more descriptive name. These treats are a delicacy and are more “dainty” than brownies. They have no chocolate, are not brown, and NOT as sweet nor…

Good Stuff Dessert (a chocolate pudding trifle)

Good Stuff Dessert (a chocolate pudding trifle) by Salad Foodie

Years ago a friend gave me this recipe saying it is as the name says, truly “Good Stuff.” Layers start with a pecan crust, then a cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding layer and a whip topping. As a dessert it’s a real “looker,” but the taste tells you this is one luscious “icebox” cake. The name doesn’t do this one justice ~…

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!…

San Antone Black Bean Salad by Amos Miller

With friends and family living in the great state of Texas, my frequent visits have always meant new flavor profiles to experience, new ways to express myself in the kitchen and when I am invited out and asked to 'bring something to pass'. I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies by J. Gino Genovesi

This is an original recipe. I was making them, years ago, because my children wanted a "loaded" oatmeal cookie that was good, soft and plump. Now my grand children like them and I thought I would pass it on so others can enjoy them. They are easy to prepare and delicious. Chef J. Gino Genovesi

Asian-style Deep Fried Chicken Wings

Asian-style Deep Fried Chicken Wings by A.L. Wiebe

I have been making this version of chicken wings for years now, and they are always a hit. This is just the basic marinade recipe, so depending on my mood, I spice them up some with extra Sriracha sauce, maybe some garlic. Do what makes you happy, but enjoy and have fun with it. *P.S. this will likely destroy your deep-fry oil, so…

The name comes from the Danish "apple slices" because that was used predominantly as the filling. Batter is poured into a heated æbleskiver pan to cook, with an optional filling of fruit or raisins promptly…

Peach Rum Sauce

Peach Rum Sauce by Salad Foodie

Lip-smacking delicious! A spoonful of this delicately flavored luscious sauce turns ordinary desserts into memorable treats. Warm and serve over ice cream, or use for French toast or your morning breakfast bread. The first time I made this recipe (found on freshpreserving.com) I was skeptically cautious, canning it in small jars to…

Incredible Chocolate Chip Cookies

Incredible Chocolate Chip Cookies by J. Gino Genovesi

We all know there are many recipes for chocolate chip cookies, with many things added to them. But for a soft, plump, cookie this one is the best I think. I have tried different chocolate chips recipes, but I was not happy with a flat, thin cookie.. Enjoy!
