I was eating some fajitas and rice one day and wondered "how about I combine this somehow?" This is the result. Green salad and corn bread are very good complementary dishes.
A bean dish resembling a chili with a sweet brown sugar sauce and bacon.
Fresh avocado slices and warm (if not quite melty) feta cheese top these delicious lamb burgers. Cook over a grill with a handful of wood chips thrown over the coals, and serve slathered with your choice of tzatziki or a nice garlic aioli.
Based on Indian Rogan Josh (red lamb), this recipe also borrows from Mexican and American culture to create something quite unique, and delicious. very quick and easy, the actual rolling of the wraps is the only semi-difficult part. (See our "How to roll up a wrap" article.)
If you like fluffy brown bread this it. No white flour here. You can use any 100% whole grain wheat flour. I mill my own. This bread is not heavy like most 100% whole wheat breads. If it is you used too much flour and your dough was too stiff. If it flattens out and won't stand up you need more flour. The total amount of flour is usually about 7 cups. This recipe has been in my family for years and we all make it. We make a lot more now that we have powerful mixers and the hand kneading is bye bye.
A quick, nutritious, low-fat recipe that's inexpensive to make, yet has a ton of flavor. The medley of beans pairs nicely with the wild rice. Serve with a loaf of fresh bread and you're in heaven!
Contrary to popular belief, Wienerschnitzel is NOT German! In fact, the name gives it away: Wiener, the German word for Vienna. It is an Austrian dish, and one that relies on true simplicity to work. This is the recipe as found at Schnitzelwirt in Vienna. It can be made with almost any meat, but below I give instructions for a veal or pork schnitzel.
Great spread with cream cheese and/or Nutella or just plain butter. Toasts up great. My kids loved it with peanut butter.
A rich, dark bread with that heavenly scent of ginger. Luscious with cream cheese and/or lemon curd. Great toasted too.
A delicious recipe for brunch or anytime.
Another of my Super Bowl creations that was a huge hit with all who tried it.
Easy to make chocolate cake covered with a delectable topping of coconut, almonds, and chocolate.
My father and his Chinese "brother's" recipe for the best deep fried shrimp is now famous in our town. You can even put these on the grill. For a sauce, ketchup and horseradish work great, but these are great by themselves!
If you have ever been to Nova Scotia you would have seen these sweet & spicy little wraps in every little pizza shop or corner store. This recipe is easy to make and sooo good to eat.
This was my favorite to eat, and now it's my favorite to make.
A deliciously alcoholic and sweet apple pie, using Kahlua liqueur to lend a complex flavor.
A flavorful apple walnut bread. Great for breakfast or as a dessert
An Asian egg noodle soup with a base of ginger, garlic, and beef (or chicken) stock. flavored with fresh basil, and green onions. Start off by preparing all the ingredients; its easier to concentrate on a soup if you have taken the time to prepare all the ingredients first. This recipe is mainly a guideline on how to create a basic soup. Add whatever veggies you want.
Something I whipped up one night for the in-laws. It was inspired by, and based loosely, on several other recipes I have seen. Fairly basic but terrifically tasty!
A simple and fun way to dress up asparagus. This easy recipe lends itself to all sorts of seasoning experiments.
