Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings
Pinto beans are simmered with onion, tomatoes, chili powder, cumin and garlic. I love making these beans just because they make the whole house smell so good, and the longer they simmer the better they taste. You could add 1/2 can of beer to make 'borracho' beans. I personally taste-test throughout the entire cooking process and add extra seasoning as I feel it needs it. These beans could simmer all day long; just make sure they have plenty of water to keep the beans covered.
Air Fryer Baked Potatoes
Beautifully crusty on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside, just like a great baked potato should be! Serve them with your favorite topping, like sour cream, butter, or chives.
Quinoa and Black Beans
Very flavorful alternative to black beans and rice. Quinoa is a nutty grain from South America.
This is a very good veggie dish I learned years ago at a school camp-out. It's easy to make and can also be made in the oven the same way.
Microwave Corn on the Cob
This is a no-nonsense recipe for corn on the cob. Perfect for when you run out of stove or grill space. I freeze the corn on the cob in plastic bags, and remove a single ear of frozen corn in the cold winter months to have the sweet taste of summer corn throughout the year!
Sauteed String Beans
Tired of regular or canned string beans? Here's an easy way to flavor up those veggies! Even my string bean hating roommate loves these!
Pat's Baked Beans
My step mom gave me this tasty recipe when I was lamenting over what to bring to a barbecue. I've taken this dish to several parties and there's NEVER been any left over!
This dish is great served with my Lamb Tagine and Cucumber Raita also on this site.
This applesauce is delicious! I make it for my younger brother all the time and he loves it - and he hates canned applesauce!

My mother-in-law gave me this quick and easy recipe for the sweetest, tastiest corn cobs!
Roasted Green Beans
A great alternative to fast-food French fries. My family and friends love these as a snack or hors d'oeuvre. No matter how many I make, it's never enough!
Potato Pancakes I
This is a traditional potato pancake recipe, and is a wonderful comfort food. Serve with applesauce and sour cream for a light dinner, or with roast chicken for a hearty winter meal. You can use more flour if the mixture seems too wet.
