Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Perfect New York Style Pizza Dough by John Spottiswood

So I asked him for his ultimate pizza dough recipe and he gave me this. It's adapted from the book PIZZA by Diane Morgan and Tony Gemignani. The recipe in the book calls for…

Homemade Manicotti by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is simple and absolutely delicious. It is a reasonable amount of work, so good to cook for a large party or family gathering. It is fun to prepare with a friend or relative, perhaps with a glass of wine in hand! I adapted this from a recipe cookoff I saw on the Food Network.

Cajun Bread Pudding with Praline Sauce

Cajun Bread Pudding with Praline Sauce by Amos Miller

I am surprised more folks haven't tried this. I have been asked for this recipe more times than I can remember. I have served the following dish to more than 300 diners (at a time) and got a substantial number of raves, so I want to pass it on for anyone who wants something a little more like home, more New Orleans, more than a Red…

It's a combination of fava beans, garlic, parsley/coriander, and cumin in a rich fresh tomato sauce with a touch of lemon. Absolutely…

Orange Portabella and Spinach Rice Bowl

Orange Portabella and Spinach Rice Bowl by Sean Kervin

While living in Japan, I fell in love with the simplicity of the Japanese Rice Bowl. Nothing too complex - it is simply a bowl of Jasmine rice with beef or chicken, some sauce, and if you're lucky, you sometimes get sea weed or a fried egg on top. I have since bastardized the concept - but the foundation of some rice, in a bowl,…

I made it alongside an Indian curried lentil soup recipe, and while both were good, this was the hands down winner. If you're looking for a tasty, hearty, and healthy…

AUSHAK - AFGHAN RAVIOLI

AUSHAK - AFGHAN RAVIOLI by Linda Tay Esposito

I first tasted Aushak at the Salang Pass restaurant in Fremont, a city where a lot of Afghan immigrants have settled. Aushak is proof that Marco Polo made his way through that part of the world (I mean through the Hindu Kush, not Fremont!) enroute back from China. Aushak is traditionally made with beef - it's the Afghan version of…
