Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

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…

Lemon Rosemary Fig Jam

Lemon Rosemary Fig Jam by Amos Miller

The figs are ripe. sweet and the season is short. Fresh rosemary, lemon zest and juice marry perfectly to create a jam to be eaten with bold cheeses as an appetizer. Little work to create, long, slow cooking time and a couple of sterilized jars will carry this treat well into the Winter - provided you can avoid eating it all…

Uncle Amos' Molasses Cookies

Uncle Amos' Molasses Cookies by Amos Miller

This is an old stand-by, perfect for the holidays, for winter, for enjoying with a glass of milk, or hot coffee, tea or cocoa. The beautiful thing is that these cookies get better everyday - if you can stand to have them around without consuming them! This is a make-the-dough-one-day and bake-the-cookies-the-next project, so…

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake by Hungry Jenny

This contains chickpeas which might sound strange but actually works really well! It doesn't taste particularly 'chickpea'-like and is still incredibly moist despite having no butter. You can easily make this completely gluten-free by using gluten-free baking powder too. This was made in an 8" square tin.

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie by Amos Miller

I have made this recipe for years. There is none better - or so I've been told by some serious and knowing Creole cooks. And while some may say "Well, it sounds just like a pumpkin pie recipe", they are sorely mistaken. This, my friends, is a Creole Sweet Potato Pie. This is the way to eat your vegetables! Vegetables and…

Bread In 20 Minutes, Or the Fast, The Delicious and The Gluten Free

Bread In 20 Minutes, Or the Fast, The Delicious and The Gluten Free by kathy gori

Every culture and cuisine has their own version of bread and I like all of them. Flat or tall, round, square oblong, leavened, or un, paper-thin or giant heavy slabs. I love the stuff. What I don't love is the mixing, kneading, waiting, rising,…

A "pâté" (pah-TAY) is simply a paste of meat and a fat. It can be super fancy, or, as in this recipe, super simple. Guaranteed to impress your guests. Try this next time your are looking for a 'fancy' or special appetizer that requires next to no effort. This is a basic German-style country dish. If you can't obtain a smoked liver…

Lemony Rolled Sugar Cookies

Lemony Rolled Sugar Cookies by Jesika Feldman

My friend came over a few weeks ago and asked me to help her make gluten free sugar cookies. What we came up with was a soft, chewy cookie with crisp edges from rolling them in sugar before baking. They’re light, sweet, and fluffy with a bit of tang from the addition of cream cheese and from lemon juice. They’re perfect to brighten…

Gluten Free Chocolate Espresso Biscotti / Mandelbrot

Gluten Free Chocolate Espresso Biscotti / Mandelbrot by Farrell May Podgorsek

Coffee, chocolate and cinnamon are wonderful together. These crunchy cookies are a perfect treat. This recipe is designed to be gluten free but feel free to use wheat flour, eliminating the xanthan gum if using wheat flour. The GF flour gives these cookies a sandy, crunchy texture that I love. I buy organic sugar, which is a bit too…

Panizas or chickpea fritters

Panizas or chickpea fritters by Guest of winter

Panizas are typical from the Cádiz province in Andalusia, where the Sherry wines come from. They are made from chickpea flour, boiled in water, made into a dough thicker than potato mash, then sliced in small pieces and fried. They look suspiciously similar to Provençal panisses, and I heard there is a very similar thing in the south…

Romanian Mititei (Little Sausages)

Romanian Mititei (Little Sausages) by Teodora Pogonat

This is a great traditional recipe for Romanian Mititei. Mititei are skinless sausages, usually grilled, and the name literally means "little ones". They taste really well grilled, but can also be pan fried and pair well with homemade fries or a tomato/cucumber salad. Traditionally they are enjoyed with mustard, a roll of bread and…
