    Recipe Peanut Butter Chili

    I wanted to make burgers, so I got out patties that I had preformed earlier. But, my wife didn't want burgers. So, what did I do? If you're married, you already know the answer to that question. :laugh: But, just because I decided to make chili didn't mean I couldn't make my burgers. I cooked...

    Recipe Mini Spam Cassoulet

    If you've ever made a cassoulet, you'll know that although it is extremely delicious, it's quite an involved dish with multiple steps, overnight soakings, pre-preparations and whatnot and if you do it the traditional way it can take quite some time, though the end results are invariably worth...

    Sorting lentils (and dried beans)

    I suppose this could go in the vegetable section, but since I’m currently dealing with some lentils, I put it here. Anyway, every recipe I’ve ever followed that uses dried lentils, beans, or peas always says to sort through them first and pitch out any debris (specifically usually mentioning...

    Recipe Cajun Style Red Beans and Rice

    This dish is a staple of New Orleans cuisine and has as many versions as there are kitchens. After looking through the pantry I put together this version which is a satisfying one pot meal. Andouille sausage might be described as a spicy fat hot dog for those unfamiliar with it. Ingredients 8...

    Recipe Arroz con Frijoles Negros - Rice with Black Beans

    Here is one more staple of Cuban comfort food. It is loaded with vegetable protein and is healthy, filling and delicious.

    Recipe Chicken Paella with Lima Beans and Artichokes

    Who doesn’t love a good Paella?! I love a good ”one pan” type dish such as this. Paella has always had a special place in my heart and never fails to cheer me up. I like whipping up one of these from time to time and the best part is that there are so many variations of them its hard not to...

    Recipe Beef Chili

    Whenever I make chili, cumin plays a significant role. I like being able to taste it, and this preparation was going to be no different than past occasions...except that I couldn't find the cumin. I have a massive container somewhere...some reorganizing was done recently (not by me), and this...

    Recipe Chili Bowl with Beef and Pinto Beans

    Use a steak or meat not meant for long term cooking. Mine was labeled “Beef fajita meat”, and it resembled skirt steak already sliced up when thawed. Flank or flat iron steak would also work here. One could use ground/minced meat, but I find that the taste/texture experience of the chili with...

    Recipe Savoy cabbage with fennel, rosemary and beans

    The aniseed flavour of fennel is a very good partner for cabbage and rosemary adds a lovely aromatic flavour to this dish. Use any sort of beans you wish. I used borlotti, because I had some to use up but green flageolet beans or haricot beans would look pretty. I served this dish with potatoes...

    Recipe Slow cooked chunky chilli con carné

    This is probably the best chilli I ever made. I think in the past I was guilty of treating chilli as an easy meal to throw together using minced beef, a tomato sauce and chilli powder. Here I used chunks of beef shin marinated in a chocolate stout. When I first started cooking this and taste...
