Creole Style Butter Beans

Creole Style Butter Beans by John Spottiswood

Butter beans (another name for Lima beans) are super healthy and flavorful. I've been looking for a simple and flavorful way to cook these, and after a lot of research I found and adapted this delicious recipe. This is flavorful and hearty enough to make a full meal out of, probably accompanied by a salad or green vegetable and some…

Sauteed Spinach with Garlic

Sauteed Spinach with Garlic by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious and healthy dish that takes 5 minutes to make and goes with almost anything--asian, mediterranean or american. Barefoot Contessa has a similar recipe but adds butter and extra salt. You don't need that, but can add if you like. Fresh spinach is much better than frozen in this dish.

Shredded Brussel Sprouts

Shredded Brussel Sprouts by Nancy Miyasaki

If you've never had shredded brussel sprouts before, you're in for a treat! These are really tasty. They have less of the bitter taste you get with whole or halved brussel sprouts, so people who are not brussel sprout fans may still like them. And brussel sprout lovers like me will still thoroughly enjoy them! To save time, use a…

Homemade Refried Beans

Homemade Refried Beans by John Spottiswood

I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered. But this recipe is simple and it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. I figure my kids are the true test, since they aren't that…

Honey-Ginger Glazed Carrots

Honey-Ginger Glazed Carrots by John Spottiswood

This is a standard side dish for us when we're serving an asian-inspired meal. It's also great with any grilled meat. The honey brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots and the ginger gives a bit of spice to balance the sweetness. Orange zest and juice gives a nice acidity to the dish. If you make this, it will likely become…

Glazed Carrots

Glazed Carrots by Nancy Miyasaki

I made these carrots to be a sweet, vegetable side to go with the Caribbean Pork we made tonight. I wanted something that would be sweet like plantains, and these did the job perfectly. I adapted this from a Cook's Illustrated recipe, and I think the technique is a good one. They'd be nice as a a side with any grilled meat.

Stir Fried Frozen Cauliflower

Stir Fried Frozen Cauliflower by Julia Ann Souders

Fresh cauliflower looked so good at the summer's Farmer's Market. I froze several bags, then this winter wondered how to fix it other than boiling to get soggy limp cauliflower. By thawing first, microwaving for about 1 minute and draining well, it was ready for a quick stir fry. Seasoned and enhanced with walnut pieces made a quick…

Potatoes With Parsley and Garlic - Pommes Parsillade

Potatoes With Parsley and Garlic - Pommes Parsillade by John Spottiswood

These are the fantastic potatoes you've probably had in a french bistro...the ones that weren't pommes frites (french fries). They are best served immediately when the crisp exterior contrasts so nicely with the warm, soft interior. We served these with a lentils and sausage recipe that I will post shortly. The combination was…

NOT Momofuku Ginger Scallion Noodles by Lisa Michele

This is not Momofuku's famous Ginger Scallion Noodles, but my take on them using some extra flavors I was craving at the time. Easy and delicious!

This is a nice rice and beans dish that is similar to risotto. It is rich and creamy. We've made the lacto-ovo vegetarian version but it can easily be adapted to vegan with some simple substitutions.
