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…

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit by Amos Miller

This is one of my absolute favorite berry desserts and comes from Tony Bourdain and Les Halles Restaurant in NYC. I have had the audacity to make just one minor modification to the recipe, but I have no regrets, and neither will you. We grow blueberries all season long at Walnut Ridge Farm, so there are always opportunities to try…

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…

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…

Cherry Winks ~ Classic Cookies

Cherry Winks ~ Classic Cookies by Amos Miller

This is the original recipe for a cookie that won the 2nd Pillsbury Bake Off. They contain dates, pecans, maraschino cherries, cornflakes and a kiss of vanilla extract. I have followed the original recipe but you G-F members will see my modifications for you in the Ingredints below. I've adapted the recipe for gluten intolerant…

Easy Risotto & Gourmet Mushrooms

Easy Risotto & Gourmet Mushrooms by Amos Miller

Risotto scares too many cooks. It's really a simple dish, though not commonly served at the American dinner table - unless you have some (usually Northern) Italian blood in your family. When done with care, risotto can be a sublime accompaniment to all types of dishes. In fact, you can add all types of things to a risotto to…

Have a taste for a HOT hot dog with an upscale South of the Border touch? This is a hit. Its a somewhat unusual sausage, but obtainable - or you can make your own (email me for the recipe). I use duck fat here. I save the fat whenever I serve…

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…

Shrimp Barbeque

Shrimp Barbeque by Amos Miller

Watch out! There is alot of butter in this dish - but life is an adventure and we have to occasionally take some risks! You will want a good French bread for dipping in the sauce & you'd better wear a napkin - or better yet, a lobster bib, too. If you are a child of N'awlins Creole and Cajun cooking, you know how to eat mudbugs…

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder by Salad Foodie

We never wait for fall for this favorite of all chowders, but enjoy it year round. A good way to use up leftover roast chicken, and the ingredients go together quickly for a fast weeknight dinner. Can be lightened by subbing fat-free half and half, or a 12 ounce can evaporated milk for the cream.

Succotash with Fresh Herbs & Smoked Meat

Succotash with Fresh Herbs & Smoked Meat by Amos Miller

To a great extent, succotash was another of the many gifts to the table from Native Americans. Corn, beans and meat are a tasty and nourishing combination, whatever the type of bean or meat. In this recipe the real flavor play is brought forward by the addition of fresh herbs. After all, corn and beans have no real pronounced flavors…

NUTTY flourless cookie CRISPS < Brutti ma Buoni >

NUTTY flourless cookie CRISPS < Brutti ma Buoni > by Foodessa

Got a few egg whites left over from a recipe? Here's a super easy crispy, flourless cookie called < Brutti ma Buoni >. It's an Italian saying...loosely translated as ugly looking (not really) but yummy. Originally made with roasted hazelnuts...however, re-created to include roasted almonds instead. I also reduced much of the…

Gluten Free Quinoa Tabouli by JoannE.

*Can't find Red Quinoa no problem - The red quinoa for this recipe because it retains a firmer texture after cooking but traditional quinoa will be just as tasty!

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…
