Cajun Crowder Beans

Cajun Crowder Beans by Amos Miller

Also known as Crowder peas, these delicious little fellas can often be found in frozen form at the store. These are fresh picked right here in Michigan and, like fava beans and so many other seasonal treats, we rush them to the table. Crowders are really a 'Southern' treat and I first enjoyed them when visiting relatives in West…

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…

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce by Amos Miller

Leaves turning, cooler breezes blowing - time for a comforting pork roast with onions, apples and hard cider. This is a deceptively simple dish that Claire Robinson turned me on to, and is loaded with country flavors. The hard cider reduces down to a savory sauce after Granny Smith apples and sliced onions are caramelized. A very…

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…

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cornbread

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cornbread by The Blender Girl

I modified my mother-in-law’s beloved cornbread recipe to create this. The pumpkin gives the gluten free-flours a moisture and spring, and the lemon juice and spices lifts the mix. My first go was a triumph, and I have not changed anything since. I like to serve this bread right out of the oven, and put almond butter or regular butter…

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.…
