Port Huron-Style Coney Sauce

Rating: Unrated
This is a style of coney sauce that is found in the Greek restaurants and Coney Islands around the Detroit, Michigan area. It is very unique and different from New York coney sauce. Serve over steamed hot dogs in steamed buns with mustard and chopped raw onion if you wish.

Boston Cooler

Despite the name, the Boston Cooler is a Detroit original. To be properly enjoyed, you must use Vernor's as your ginger ale. However, as it's not readily available in all markets, substitute other brands if you must.

Best Darn Minestrone Soup Around

This is a recipe for a Minestrone Soup that is very similar to Lelli's Minestrone soup here in Detroit. Make sure you use a large stock pot, because this recipe is big. SIMPLY AMAZING!

Vitamix® Hummus

Rating: Unrated
This is the result of my quest for perfectly creamy and flavorful hummus. We have many Middle Eastern restaurants in metro Detroit and I've always wanted to perfect the recipe at home. The secret to ultimate creaminess with this recipe is the Vitamix® blender, which really emulsifies the mixture so it's not grainy. Using a food processor in the past, it never came out smooth. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and lightly garnish with a dash of paprika or minced parsley if desired. Sprinkle toasted pine nuts on top when serving for a savory variation. Great with fresh baked pita, pretzels, or sliced vegetables.

Detroit-Style Coney Dogs

Rating: Unrated
Where I come from no Tigers game is complete without a Detroit Coney. It's a grilled, natural-casing hot dog, loaded with chili sauce, mustard, and onions. Yummy...Detroit-style yummy!

Dad's Favorite Detroit-Style Roquefort Burgers

Rating: Unrated
Fifty years ago, my Dad used to have this burger at lunch with his business clients in a nice restaurant in Detroit, Michigan. They all raved about them all the time. I don't remember the name of the restaurant, and chances are it is long gone... but the burger is still YUM!
