Khalia - Georgian Beef Stew

Khalia - Georgian Beef Stew by John Spottiswood

This is the incredible, densely flavored beef stew that I enjoyed so much at a Georgian restaurant in St. Petersburg, Russia. I've been searching for this, and finally I nailed it. I had this served in a sizzling cast iron pan in Russia, and while I didn't serve it that way to my dinner guests last night, it tasted just as good.…

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Roast

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Roast by Robyn Savoie

I was craving cranberries. So I pulled out this recipe I had for a little while and made it for dinner tonight. I rely on a can of cranberry sauce to create the sweet tangy sauce for this tender pork entree. This is nicely seasoned as it simmers by using cranberry and/or orange juice, ground cloves and ground mustard. My…

Mon Gateau Au Chocolat by Ali El Safy

An absolutely wonderful cake; most traditionally served without icing. If you're including kids, might want to add your favorite, but I love it the "old school" way!

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…

Sauteed Zucchini and Mushrooms by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a simple and fresh tasting dish that I created myself. I don't do that very often, but I must admit this was a success. I might try adding red onion and experiment with different spices, but honestly this is simple and delicious as is.

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…

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…

Cumin Chicken

Cumin Chicken by John Spottiswood

The combined flavors of cumin and oregano in this seasoning is just phenomenal with poultry. This recipe is adapted from Allen Susser's New World Cuisine. It is one of our favorites. Even as we have moved toward more of a vegetable-centric cuisine, this has remained a staple.
