Killer Shrimp

Killer Shrimp by John Spottiswood

Nancy and I loved eating at this hole in the wall restaurant in Marina Del Ray called Killer Shrimp. It was in a strip mall and didn't have much character, but their "killer" shrimp drew a loyal crowd. I recently heard that it had closed, so I've tried to recreate it with help from a few others who have tried. I think what most the…

Fried Chicken

Fried Chicken by Ella Mangelos Velthoen

This is one of my husbands favorite items. He loves fried chicken and is all excited when I make it. I always accompany it with mashed potatoes and gravy and he will eat it leftover with no complaints.. When making the mashed potatoes, I use the potato water to enrich my gravy.

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness by John Spottiswood

This is a great Beef Stew adapted from a recipe by Margaret Johnson. We doubled the recipe, used about half the butter, and added plenty of salt and black pepper. We also cooked it about 5 hours ahead of time and let it sit in the pot for another 3 hours after it was done cooking. It was awesome.

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!

Arancini (Italian Rice Balls)

Arancini (Italian Rice Balls) by lisa

Arancini means "little oranges" in Sicilian and they can be found all over Palermo. Cooked and flavored Arborio rice is formed around a filling of tomato, meat and peas, coated in breadcrumbs and fried until golden brown. When I make them they're about the size of a baseball,but you can make them slightly smaller. . Soft and crispy…

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry by John Spottiswood

This is more of an Indian than Thai curry, and has a condensed, pungent sauce. It is unusual and really wonderful. Curries are hit or miss with our kids, but they all loved this one (except for the peas...which meant more for me!) We served this with a brown/white rice mix and steamed brocco-flower. The sauce on this is so pungent…

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…

Irish Stew for a Crowd

Irish Stew for a Crowd by K. Garner

Tips: -The picture here shows what it looks like with additional broth; add more at will. -The beef browning process is a little flawed. If you aren't particular about a sear on the outside of the pieces, then proceed as directed. -Salt isn't an ingredient, but you must add it, to your liking. Credit goes to the Nesco 18-Qt. Roaster…
