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…

Creole Rice Pudding

Creole Rice Pudding by Amos Miller

NEVER throw day-old rice away! Next time you have that extra-large Chinese take out and you have some of that white rice left over, you have the base of a fabulous rice pudding, New Orleans-style! This is NOT the junk you have to choose from for dessert ("jello, rice pudding, sherbet") after the regrettable meal at the greasy spoon…

Pâté with Bacon & Onion

Pâté with Bacon & Onion by Amos Miller

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…

Garbage Salad (not really)

Garbage Salad (not really) by Amos Miller

This salad will make the meal, or be the meal. Broccoli, oranges, almonds, raisins, mushrooms, onion & bacon - and a fabulous classic sweet & tangy creamy dressing! Vegetarians can substitute bac-o-bits, or not add a bacon substitute. Throwing together bits and pieces of a variety of items has long been the basis of some great…

Andes Fudge Cookies

Andes Fudge Cookies by Jesika Feldman

These cookies have a slight crisp to the outside but a soft, gooey brownie like texture on the inside. They are intense, guaranteed to please any chocolate lover! I built this recipe after studying about ten or so variations, putting together what I thought would make the perfect cookie and if I haven't made I'm pretty darn close!…

Sugar Pumpkin Curry Cream Soup

Sugar Pumpkin Curry Cream Soup by Amos Miller

We grow sugar pumpkins and after the harvest, I always break them down and puree them and pop them into the freezer for a long Winter's use. In addition to pies (of course), tarts, cookies, breads, custard and sauce - I love sugar pumpkin soup. As you can imagine, this member of the squash family is somewhat sweeter, has fewer seeds…

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…

Savory Creole Sweet Potato Casserole

Savory Creole Sweet Potato Casserole by Amos Miller

No sweet topping here - this has breadcrumbs & bacon and the Creole twist of Jamaican Pickapeppa Sauce in the yams. It is good to venture outside your comfort zone from time to time - and this is a good way to start! I was set on this culinary path in 1987 when first introduced to Chef Austin Leslie at Chez Helene in New Orleans.…

Garlic Herbed Sweet Potatoes

Garlic Herbed Sweet Potatoes by Amos Miller

TRY THIS AT EASTER - it is a signature dish! It is sweet and savory with fresh herbs, dairy products and chicken broth. This is a North Carolina recipe, naturally healthy and rich in beta-carotene, the most common plant source of vitamin A. But who cares! This is delicious, even if it is good for you...besides, sweet potatoes…
