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…

San Antone Black Bean Salad

San Antone Black Bean Salad by Amos Miller

With friends and family living in the great state of Texas, my frequent visits have always meant new flavor profiles to experience, new ways to express myself in the kitchen and when I am invited out and asked to 'bring something to pass'. I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

Beef Fajita Best Marinade

Beef Fajita Best Marinade by Amos Miller

This is fast, simple and super delicious! You should have a very hot (very) cast iron griddle or pan to do this right. I preheat the griddle and simultaneously heat a cast iron serving dish so it goes to table with that distinctive 'sizzle'. Be sure to cut the meat, after it has rested, across the grain and as thin as you can. This…

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie

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…

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip by Amos Miller

Still snowed in and entertaining the stranded! So I tried another Ellie Krieger recipe for a game day or appetizer dip option. Even though Ellie is a registered dietician and a very dedicated health nut, I still like her recipes! Anyway, I love roasted sweet peppers and, having 3 reds on hand, some crumbled feta cheese and a lemon I…

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…

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…

The first gluten free recipe I tried really developing myself was Chocolate Chip Cookies. By this I mean studying a bunch of different recipes, seeing what I thought worked best, and making my own recipe out of them. I've tried so many packaged gluten free chocolate chip cookie mixes and there's always some aspect that dissatisfying…
