This Egyptian Spicy Fried Prawns and Scallops recipe is a fine example of Egyptian seafood dishes. A sumptuous combination of flavors, it is not really spicy as in hot-spicy, although you could add cayenne pepper to taste if you want to kick it up a notch. But you want the cumin and ginger to really stand out – this savory combination is what gives Egyptian Spicy Fried Prawns and Scallops its distinctive flavor.

There are lots of beef stews, but until you have tried this Hearty Beef Stew Wilsonian, you have not yet known how wonderful a beef stew can be. This is my own special recipe. Hearty Beef Stew Wilsonian is an outgrowth of my interaction with my Ghanaian wife’s cooking. She is, in her own right, an amazing cook. She has introduced me to spices and food preparations that I had not yet known. Combined with my American ideas about how to cook a stew with her Ghanaian concepts, this Wilson Hearty Beef Stew came to be. Enjoy!

Gurkensalat is what we in America know as Cucumber Salad. It is originally from Germany, and we owe it to German immigrants who, long ago, brought this, one of their favorite dishes, with them. It soon became popular in the States, especially in the south.
There are two classic versions of Gerkensalat, One has a creamy sauce, made with sour cream in it, and the other is a lighter version. This recipe is the lighter version, although I do include the optional garnishes of a dollop of sour cream and a cherry tomato.
While there are of course many slight variations on the traditional recipe, this one is my personal favorite. If you are preparing an authentic German meal of Weiner Schnitzel, this makes for a perfect and traditional side dish.

West Coast American Tetrazzini originated in San Francisco, just after the turn of the 20th century, created by Ernest Arbogast, the chef at the Palace Hotel. It is supposedly named after Luisa Tetrazzini, an Italian opera star who was a longstanding resident at the Palace.
There are lots of variations on the dish, but this one is quite mainstream. I put peas in my tetrazzini, some do not, preferring peas as a side dish. I also prefer using chicken over turkey – I think chicken meat is tastier.
