A Baked Potato

A Baked Potato by Amos Miller

This is so simple, you'll laugh. It tastes so good, you'll cry. I make this when we are grilling for our guests and friends and they love it. You can also do this in your oven, any time. I know an eminent doctor of Chinese medicine who once told me that it was OK to eat a Big Mac once in a while. You're an adult, adjust things…

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…

Pear & Fig Chutney

Pear & Fig Chutney by Amos Miller

I still had a few pears from the orchard and the figs are almost finished. Why not a Pear & Fig chutney? Easily done! This is everything a chutney should be. The flavors of the pears, combined with the figs' texture and sweetness, the plump raisins and blend of vinegars easily marry to the aromatic spices. And a quality cracked…

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…

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 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…

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…

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans by Amos Miller

This dish is all about FLAVOR. San Antonio and Ft. Worth are my two favorite places to be when in Texas. This recipe was inspired by some dining experiences there and, to my palate, is as Texas as bluebonnets in Spring. Sweet and spicy, richly textured, these beans cry out for anything BBQ'd, grilled or broiled. Corn on the cob,…

Superfast Summer Sauce for ?

Superfast Summer Sauce for ? by Amos Miller

It's hot, you're hungry, you don't want to spend more than a few minutes at the stove. You have a main dish in mind. Try this. I use this quick sauce on a pasta, on grilled veggies, on a seared or grilled thin cut of meat - even on shrimp. Use your imagination! The key is that ALL ingredients hit the hot oil at the same time.…

Hannah's Sweet & Sour Cabbage Soup

Hannah's Sweet & Sour Cabbage Soup by Amos Miller

Humble, yet exhilarating, this delicious borscht is a perfect winter soup - inexpensive, perfect with bread and butter, it will warm and comfort you. I have used this recipe for the past 45 years without changing a thing (!) because it is untweakable and too simple to goof up. It is purely vegetarian, it is kosher, it can be…

Lamb Meatball and Fava Bean Tagine / Morocco

Lamb Meatball and Fava Bean Tagine / Morocco by Amos Miller

This is truly a hand-crafted meal - it takes time. I know that only the most devoted will make this. But it is nothing short of spectacular and was my favorite Spring dish. I'd eat it weekly. This is how I recall Mina made for me when I lived in Marrakech. I'm sharing it just because it is a personal favorite and, for guests,…

Zippy Chicken Salad in Reed Avocado

Zippy Chicken Salad in Reed Avocado by Amos Miller

Everyone has a meatloaf recipe - and everyone has a chicken salad recipe. Here's mine - simple, elegant, healthy (pretty much) and very tasty. I don't present this as anything other than a great entree using some elements grown on the farm. It is sort of a fruity, curried Waldorf Salad...(it' s also great served on a tender roll, or…

Grilled Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage & Red Potatoes, Duck Fat Fried with Cumin Sea Salt & Cilantro Garnish

Grilled Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage & Red Potatoes, Duck Fat Fried with Cumin Sea Salt & Cilantro Garnish by Amos Miller

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…
