Casablanca Chili

Rating: 4 stars 52
Peanut butter, mango chutney and lime juice - in chili?! Yes, and it's delicious! This incredibly quick and easy - yet quite nontraditional - chili is a perfect antidote to fancy holiday meals and works equally well using chopped leftover turkey. 'Eat it again, Sam'!

Beets on the Grill

Rating: 4.5 stars 77
Roast beets in a foil packet right on the grill in this easy preparation.

Appetizer Mussels

Rating: 5 stars 121
What timing! Although I have eaten mussels many times, October 17 was the very first time I cooked them, and (if I do say so myself!) they were great. A friend and I ate every last one, and he raved about the flavor the whole time. This is my own recipe.

Spicy Coconut Shrimp Bisque

Rating: 4.5 stars 72
I loved how this shrimp bisque turned out, and I think you will as well. I hope you give it a try, and maybe tweak it with some different combinations of seafood and garnishes.

Try this recipe with some killer, end-of-summer, super sweet tomatoes.

Thai Inspired Spicy Curry Butternut Squash Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 6
Love Thai flavors and I felt they would be a perfect match to play off the richness of a butternut squash soup. Curry, coconut, spicy are a wonderful to balance the richness of the squash. The first time I made it was kind of an accident. I was trying to make the traditional soup but when I tasted it lacked something. I looked to see how I could punch up the flavor. First I added the curry, I had some leftover red curry paste I made, added coconut milk and I felt I had something special. Like many soups and stews the flavor is better the following day. Enjoy!

Garlic Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Bacon

Rating: 4.5 stars 108
Pan-fry Brussels sprouts in butter and crispy bacon for a smoky addition to your vegetable side dish. You can add a little of the bacon grease to the dish if you prefer.

Mike's Drunken Mussels

Shying away from the typical tomato or wine based steamed mussel recipe? This one features tequila and lime and it as easy as 1..2..3 to prepare! Serve right away with some crusty Italian bread to soak up the juice.
