Cherry Risotto Cherry Risotto By DownHomeFoodie 06/28/12 14:00 Whenever I visit my parents, my mom asks that I make up some risotto. So, after finishing dinner one night, I asked what kind of risotto the two of them wanted. Since mom had just bought some cherries, I suggested a savory cherry risotto. I figured the...
Making Colcannon Making Colcannon By DownHomeFoodie 03/16/12 14:47 Last St. Patrick's Day, I posted a recipe on making Colcannon. Since I'm not much at preparing corned beef, this is still my go-to recipe to celebrate. It is warm, starchy, and meaty. I'm including a video for making it below, but you can also check out...
Seafood Chowder Seafood Chowder By DownHomeFoodie 03/08/12 19:20 Since I had the fish stock on hand, it seemed like the next logical step was to make a Seafood Chowder. The nice thing about a fish stock base is that it imparts a lot of flavor. However, you still need some kind of yummy seafood bits to chew on. The catch...
Fish Stock Fish Stock By DownHomeFoodie 03/06/12 16:00 In watching old Julia Child shows, I was inspired by her episode on bouillabaisse. I've never bought or tried straight fish stock, but she made it look so fun. So, I started hoarding shrimp tails and fish parts in the freezer. As you can see, I picked up...
Pb&j Treats Pb&j Treats By DownHomeFoodie 02/28/12 22:19 I love the new Peanut Butter Multi Grain Cheerios. Since, I also love Rice Krispies Treats, I was confident I could take these two loves and make a pretty sassy dessert. So I took all my favorite things, peanut butter, peanut butter cheerios, marshmallows,...
Bacon and Chili Oil Chocolate Torte Bacon and Chili Oil Chocolate Torte By DownHomeFoodie 02/15/12 23:42 I really like the idea of chocolate and bacon, but I have had a hard time finding it combined in a way I liked. My first exposure was in the Vosges candy bar. The idea seemed antithetical yet exciting, but the candy bar just still felt like eating bacon...
Meatballs in a Bread Bowl Meatballs in a Bread Bowl By DownHomeFoodie 02/14/12 00:21 My timing is a little off, but today's post and Wednesday's post are meant to be a Valentine's Day dinner sequence for a special guy in your life.

Seafood Salad Seafood Salad By DownHomeFoodie 01/24/12 02:52 I came up with this recipe because mini shrimp was on sale for $2.49. For that price, I knew I wanted to buy them and then figure out what to do with them later. Dennis discovered them in the freezer and asked, "are you going to shrimp salad?" So, that's...
Spicy Corn Chowder Spicy Corn Chowder By DownHomeFoodie 01/09/12 20:04 This is an adaptation of corn chowder that makes it moreMexican in theme. Because of partiallypureeing the black beans, it is not the prettiest of soups. You may want to leave the beans out tillafter the puree to help keep them intact and the aesthetic...
Christmas Recipes: Tortellini Soup Christmas Recipes: Tortellini Soup By DownHomeFoodie 12/23/11 03:49 This was the soup my mom always fixed for Christmas Eve dinner. Since my dad is a minister, Christmas Eve was working evening and involved him coming in and out fom different services. So, a warm, full soup was something she could do ahead and then we could...
Christmas Recipes: Beet Risotto Christmas Recipes: Beet Risotto By DownHomeFoodie 12/19/11 15:00 This is a recipe from my archives that I've brought back for the holidays. It is a perfect Christmas dish because it is such a beautiful and festive color. Plus, the earthiness of the dish would go great with either turkey, rib roast, or a crown roast....
Christmas Recipes: Mulled Wine Christmas Recipes: Mulled Wine By DownHomeFoodie 12/18/11 15:00 With grading papers and moving out of the efficiency I was living in, I'm a little late posting my Christmas recipes. Now, since I am staying with my parents for the holidays, I have access to a full kitchen and so was able to get all the Christmas posts...

Thanksgiving Recipes: Cucumber and Apple Pickles Thanksgiving Recipes: Cucumber and Apple Pickles By DownHomeFoodie 11/10/11 16:00 I love the carb, fat, butter, sugar fest that isThanksgiving. Sometimes, though, I wishI did have something to break-up the heaviness and brighten things up. To help provide divergence from heavier dishes, I puttogether a combination that takes some of...
Thanksgiving Recipes: Sausage and Apple Wine Stuffing Thanksgiving Recipes: Sausage and Apple Wine Stuffing By DownHomeFoodie 11/08/11 15:00 Last time I was at Hill Top Berry Farm and Winery, I bought a bottle of their Mountain Apple Wine. Since I had so much fun playing around using beer to make seasonal scones, I decided to see what I could do with the Apple Wine. After playing around with...
Pumpkin Porter Scones Pumpkin Porter Scones By DownHomeFoodie 10/10/11 16:17 A couple weeks ago, StumbleUpon directed me to a recipe for cheddar beer scones. I thought that sounded great, but was more intrigued by this new idea of making scones with beer. In my head, I started thinking about all the ways to make that work: Magic...
Beet Risotto Beet Risotto By DownHomeFoodie 10/08/11 01:14 Whenever I am home visiting my parents, my mom likes for me to make risotto. Since my beet risotto, which I normally make at Christmas, is one of her favorites, I made a batch up with mom. I really find the combination of beets and risotto irresistible....
Pierogi Quiche Recipe on Honest Cooking Pierogi Quiche Recipe on Honest Cooking By DownHomeFoodie 09/26/11 19:45 On Thursday, Honest Cooking posted a recipe I did for Pierogi Quiche. The idea came about a very long time ago when a friend and I were talking about recipes that were meant to be gratuitous. I joked at the time that the most over-the-top dish that I could...
Turkey Risotto Turkey Risotto By DownHomeFoodie 04/13/11 17:02 Risotto is a labor of love. There are recipes out there that say you don’t continually stir the risotto, but those recipes are lying. But, as important as the stirring is to making it creamy, it seems that the real key to risotto is in the broth you use....
