Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon

Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon by Amos Miller

When the daytime temperature hits around 50 degrees and the evening plunges to 30 or lower, it is time to begin the annual maple syrup processing in our neck of the woods. We use it for many things and one of them is this cornbread. I first had a jalapeno cornbread in Texas, made by my sister's cowboy husband's aunt Netha, and…

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style by Amos Miller

I have never been a really big fan of cauliflower, but I love potatoes and spices. This dish, known as 'Alu Ghobi', has long been a favorite vegetable side dish in my kitchen. It is simple, easy to make and very healthy for you. One seldom finds a cauliflower dish on the average restaurant menu. But you need not be a…

Dry Rub Hot Wings

Dry Rub Hot Wings by Malcom Reed

This is my favorite hot wing recipes. You can use either fresh or frozen wing sections or whole wings. If the wings are frozen, thaw the wings overnight in the fridge. A good tip here is to leave the wings in their original bag but place them in a large bowl because they will leak.

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…

Tomatoes, onion, garlic and cilantro cook down to make the savory sauce for grilled salmon. Serve atop your choice of rice or pasta and add a side of bright vegetables or salad.

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 ~…

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs by Amos Miller

Eggplant has nothing to do with eggs - unless you dip and bread them. This sauce is a knockout! We grow 'Casper', an heirloom small, long white eggplant. It's mild in flavor and perfectly suited to thick, rich vegetable sauces. When cut into dime-to-quarter-sized disks, I have found Casper to be a perfect addition to other late…
