    This spread is easy to make but pretty to look at. Serve on a platter with rye bread triangles.

    Recipe #227278

    This recipe I got while on a fishing trip over in East Texas. One of our party was Cajun and he decided to fix our dinner for us (actually, he lost a bet!). This is what he came up with. Nothing like fresh caught bass and this sauce made it exceptionally delicious!

    Recipe #226154

    Here's something for after dinner that's not too heavy and is refreshing.

    Recipe #226097

    This dish is called Mexican beefsteak because of the colors of the ingredients: white onion, red tomato and green chili. Since white, red and green are the colors of the Mexican National Flag, Mexican beefsteak is one of the most popular dishes in Mexico.

    Recipe #225105

    The word "gumbo" usually conjures visions of a tomato-ey soup, reddish, and rife with chunky things like okra. You can find this kind of gumbo in Louisiana, but the amazing thing about the gumbo there is its variety. Gumbos can have different colors, different textures, and different ingredients. This is one of my very favorite types: a dark-brown, medium-rich one, with chunks of meat but no okra. What makes it so special? This is one of those amazing Louisiana dishes you hear about that involves the darkening of the roux - for at least an hour - until it's the color of mahogany. This adds not only color but incredible flavor to the gumbo: nutty, toasty, almost coffee like. I had a gumbo like this at Mr. B's Bistro in New Orleans, made with chicken, and andouille sausage and loved it so much I have tried to copy the recipe. I tried it first with the chicken, then I decided to use some spareribs I had. When I make my gumbo, it’s ingredients are whatever I have in the fridge at the time. Is it hot enough for you? I suggest initially going with my spice amounts suggested in the recipe, because the gumbo gets "hotter" as it cooks; you can always adjust with Tabasco sauce or spices at the last minute. Speaking of which, I find that a tiny pinch of ground gumbo file just before serving adds a lovely accent.

    This is excellent for "The Morning After"! Goes down really well and provides a little something to chew on, too. Arrange at least four or five different kinds of pickled vegetables on four or five dishes. Generally speaking, "long" vegetables work best as stirrers. But "short" vegetables can work too, as long as you thread several of each on a toothpick or 6-inch bamboo skewer.

    Please note: Exercise caution when you add the bourbon and the Cointreau. Stand well back from the pan, and keep the area as clear as possible.

    The Mexican state of Veracruz stretches along the Gulf Coast like the graceful tentacle of a sea creature. Within the boundaries formed by the warm coastal waters to the east and the Sierra Madre Oriental to the west is an enticing pot-pourri of cultures. Long before Europeans arrived in Mexico through what is now the port city of Veracruz, the area occupied by the modern-day state of Veracruz was populated by the Olmecs, as well as Huastecs and Totonacs. The latter were famous for their cultivation of vanilla and curing the pods for culinary use, adding a unique flavor to many of their dishes. The use of acuyo, a herb also known as hoja santa, also characterized the indigenous cooking of the area. The staple food triumvirate of corn, beans and squash was further supplemented by a variety of tropical fruits, thanks to the area's temperate-to-tropical climate. In addition to the chiles, tomatoes and avocadoes so important in the Mexican cooking, papaya, mamey and zapote were cultivated. These are very popular today in the licuados and helados - milk shakes and ice cream - so dear to the hearts of jarochos. This variety and abundance was given a further culinary boost with the arrival of the Spaniards, who introduced herbs such as parsley, thyme, marjoram, bay laurel and cilantro, as well as many of the spices that would later characterize Veracruz cooking. A combination of saffron, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper was pre-mixed and sold to flavor fish empanadas. The Spaniards also brought wheat, rice, almonds, olives and olive oil, garlic and capers. The latter three are essential ingredients in what is perhaps the most famous specialty of the region, Huachinango a la Veracruzana, red snapper in a spicy tomato sauce.

    Recipe #224826

    When I first arrived in Skopje, Macedonia, my partner and I went out looking for a place for lunch. From the center of town, we went across an old stone bridge that had survived the major earthquake of 1986 and into a quaint shopping district. Macedonia had recently declared their independence from Yugoslavia and had adopted a constitution which Greece did not like and therefore illegally imposed an embargo upon anything going into or out of Macedonia. Needless to say there was nothing in the shops to purchase. What was there had two price tags, one in the Macedonian dinnars and the other in German Marks. This changed after the United States started pumping money into this little country. Their tags now show the dinnars but the other in American Dollars!! Anyway, my partner and I stumbled into this VERY SMALL café. It was packed! The front window was made into a bay window into which a grill was mounted. This way the sidewalk strollers could see the food cooking. The aroma was tremendous. The cook was making little sausages which looked like our little breakfast link sausages. This was the ONLY thing offered on their menu. You could order 5, 10, or 15 of these. They came with a huge green onion and some sort of bread (I didn’t get that recipe). We ordered up a batch of these with their version of beer. We switched to their version of cognac quickly. But the sausages were delicious!! We returned many a time for these delicacies.

    Recipe #223784

    My interpreter's mother (who was a commercial baker in Skopje, Macedonia) used a dowel which looked to be about 3/8 to 1/2 inch in diameter and about 3 feet long to roll out her pastry. She used this to make the pastry for her Hortopita, which is a Greek/Macedonian baking-powder-leavened bread stuffed with spinach and feta cheese. It is simply fantastic the way she made it - rolling out the dough with her dowel in a long thin strip. Then she would place the spinach/Feta cheese stuffing along the middle of the strip and fold the dough over the stuffing. Then she would roll the stuffed dough into a spiral like a cinnamon roll, bake it and serve. It is no wonder that I am not weighing 500 pounds! Make it several weeks ahead, and freeze, then thaw and reheat it in a moderate oven. Serve it as an hors d'oeuvre or with the meal.

    I picked this recipe up in the Ukraine. I modified it somewhat in my recipes but this is the original recipe. I usually add Almond extract to the Meringue layer, in the fillings I used Kirstvasser (gives a little cherry flavor, and Instead of the Chocolate icing I coated it with whipped cream and festooned Strawberries all over.

    Recipe #223658

    Start with the simplest perfect mash of avocado, garlic and salt. Then add green chili, white onion and red tomato (the colors of the Mexican flag) to create a perfect guacamole that’s perfect with a bowl of chips at a Cinco de Mayo party. Adding cilantro and lime to the basic guacamole gives it the flavors to stand alone, as a topping for crispy tacos or tostadas, or even as a dip.

    Recipe #223559

    If I were feeling sick and run-down, while living in Mexico, I would have my housekeeper fix up a batch of Caldo de Res. This would fix me right up. Most people ate this with tortillas but she would always serve this with some Mexican cornbread baked in a cast-iron skillet. Makes my mouth water just thinking of this!

    Recipe #223546

    I was first introduced to a French Cosmo with Absolut Mandarin at a restaraunt/bar in Asheville, North Carolina. Don't remember the name of the place but it was run by a Black lady who could sing just like Billie Holiday. Food there was Gourman!

    Recipe #223418

    Borscht has been claimed to have originated in many countries such as Poland, Lithuaniana, Russia, and other nations (Italy for one!). However, it is thought to have originated back in the fourteenth century in the Ukraine. As you can imagine, the ingredients and methods of preparation vary greatly according to the country, republic, city, or even the cook. However, the staple ingredient is always the luscious red beet that gives the dish its characteristic color and flavor. Even the name borscht derives from the old Slavonic brsh – meaning, of course, “beet”. In the Ukraine, borscht has always been more than just a soup; it usually constituted the mainstay of a family’s whole diet. A proper borscht should include as many as twenty ingredients and should be thick enough for a spoon to stand up in it. Borscht was usually prepared in enormous quantities for the weeks ahead, and the borscht pot sat right in the middle of the dining table. Meat from the borscht was the most desirable ingredient and in times of shortages was strictly distributed according to age and rank. The women who prepared the soup had to be skilled (in the Ukraine, a woman’s domestic qualities are judged by her borscht). We can buy borscht in the groceries but I find it is never like the REAL borscht. Most are just watery versions of beet juice! A proper borscht should include pork or ham and other meats – the more meat, the better. Try making it with beef short ribs or pork ribs, adding some diced ham or smoked kielbasa at the end. Also important for a good borscht, is to prepare the stock and vegetables correctly, strictly observing the proper order in which ingredients are added. Like many of the Slavic soups, borscht should be served with sour cream, added separately but thoroughly mixed in by each diner. Borscht tastes better the next day, so make enough to enjoy the leftovers.

    Recipe #223406

    I first encountered Angels on horseback at the Santa Fe restaraunt in McAllen, Texas. I can't quite place what was in the cocktail sauce served with these but I came up with something that goes equally well with them. The sauce was something like a spicy Chinese Hot & Sour sauce. In the sauce I quote below, I always add an extra kick with Louisiana Hot Sauce! The water chestnuts give a little extra crunch to the bite.

    Recipe #223306

    This is a recipe I use when I am in the mood for BBQ Cornish hens (or about a 3 pound chicken)without firing up my grill or smoker. I have one of those Toaster Ovens that have a rotisserie built into them. I simply rub the hens (or chicken) down with the rub, set the timer to 60 minutes and the temperature to Max and if I wanted to, walk away. But instead, I like to baste my birds so they turn out moist and flavorful. The combination of the rub (Very Spicy) and the "mop" (Very sweet) reminds me of a girl I once knew - oops! Another story!! The apple juice is a great addition to a mop because it is not an overpowering flavor, and adds sweetness to the meat. This recipe works well in a sprayer, but can also be brushed on. Shake well each time before spraying. Both the rub and the mop can be used on the grill (Gas or charcoal)

    Recipe #223275

    Most of us into Mexican cooking just happen to have clay pots in our inventory of cookware. The following is a recipe from Byelorussia which can also be made with either chicken or goose. They serve this with their world famous Potato Pancakes.

    Recipe #223266

    This is one of my favorite ways of having Cornish Game Hens. Georgians (Russian, NOT USA) have a special flair for cooking chicken. They grill or roast them (with delicately spiced walnut sauces); they fry them under a press; and they stew them with a sauce of herbs, tomatoes, and lemon juice. All of these methods make the serving of chicken in Russia memoriable. The name tapaka comes from the heavy iron skillet (tapa) with its weighted lid, under which the marinated chicken is flattened and then fried. This forms a crisp, golden crust. This recipe makes one serving so increase the ingredients to accomodate as many guests as you may have.
