Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is incredibly easy and really tasty. We're healthy eaters, so frying tomatoes isn't the first thing that comes to mind. But you have got to taste these. Amazing! Disclosure: we used fresh tomatoes from our garden that were really flavorful. You may not get the same results with less flavorful tomatoes. We served with…

Green Beans with Basil and Tomato

Green Beans with Basil and Tomato by John Spottiswood

This is an attractive and tasty side dish. The butter, basil and tomato adds a nice flavor boost to the green beans. I've made them with garlic salt and regular kosher salt, both are delicious. If you want to spice it up, add more black pepper or substitute crushed red pepper for the black pepper.

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.

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…

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…

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…

Miner's Mush

Miner's Mush by Lyndsey

My French Canadian grandma used to make this for my dad and all his siblings. It has become a Jordan family staple. I like it with the anise, but feel free to adjust the amount or eliminate it all together. Kids generally don't like it with anise.

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.

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…
