Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk by Mihir Shah

I adapted this from a recipe I found in the San Francisco Chronicle. My parents have told me that eating Black-Eyed Peas for the New Year was good luck. I made these for my New Year's Eve party and they were a big hit. Went really well with the Steamed Salmon I prepared.

It's been busy here in Sonoma getting ready for our annual 4th of July barbecue. In planning our menu this year, we decided to go for the traditional American organic beef burgers with all the fixings, two kinds of coleslaw, James Beards' sour cream slaw, a tart Indian cabbage dish, an Indian style potato salad, mixed wild greens…

Korean potato side dish

Korean potato side dish by John Spottiswood

I always love these sweet and salty braised potatoes when they are served along with kimchi and various other side dishes at korean restaurants. I've always wanted to make them, and grilling Galbi gave me the perfect opportunity. I started with a recipe from maangchi.com and substituted a mix of sugar and mirin for the corn syrup…

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…

Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes

Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes by John Spottiswood

I love my wife's traditional swedish pancake recipe. However, I feel much better when I eat a healthy breakfast of oatmeal, so I tried combining the two. I think the combination is wonderful. It still has the chewy, crepe-like texture of the traditional swedish pancake, with just a bit of nutty whole grain texture. Our kids say…

Vegetable Lasagna

Vegetable Lasagna by Salad Foodie

Lasagna laced with garden vegetables and whole wheat noodles makes a healthier pasta alternative to traditional lasagna. Don’t let the list of ingredients and/or chopping daunt you.(I just consider it my afternoon therapy session.) The veggies are cut in small pieces to layer better between noodles. Sub any combo of veggies preferred…

Weeknight Minestrone by Salad Foodie

This is a speedy version of the classic Italian minestrone. The food processor does the chopping and bottled marinara saves additional time, without compromising flavorful results. Based on Laura Vitale’s recipe in her cookbook Laura In The Kitchen (2015).

Japanese Spinach Salad, Ohitashi

Japanese Spinach Salad, Ohitashi by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious way to consume large quantities of one of the healthiest foods on the planet...spinach! I came to love this when I lived in Japan from 1991-1992, and make it frequently now because it is so easy, healthful and delicious. Serve this with any Asian dish, or any meat and potatoes. It's not particularly spicy, but…

Creamy Lentil and Broccoli Soup

Creamy Lentil and Broccoli Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a creamy, flavorful, and incredibly healthy soup. The next time you're in the mood for split pea soup (also very healthy), try this instead. It has a wonderful body and a great hearty flavor. If you haven't had sumac before as a seasoning, this is a great dish to try it with. Sumac is commonly used in the middle east to…
