I have been invited to stay on a working farm in North Dakota and this lunch is a small gesture of thanks for hosting me. 

All of the ingredients in the recipes are locally sourced at the farmers market.

Peach amaretto cobbler

Peach Amaretto cobbler

Peach Amaretto Cobbler

8 peaches

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 Tablespoons Amaretto Liquor 

1 teaspoon Apple Pie Spice

3 Tablespoons Flour

1 ts salt

1 Tablespoons White Peach Balsamic 


1/2 cup butter, cold

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup whole whipping cream, warmed

To prepare the peaches, boil 2 quarts water. Add the peaches and submerge for about one minute or until the skin begins to slip off easily. 

Set the peaches aside and cool.

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits by scooping or cutting out carefully. Slice the peaches.

In a mixing bowl, combine the peaches, the flour, Amaretto, brown and white sugars, salt and the balsamic. Mix well.

Butter an 8x8 pan. Dump peach mixture into the pan. 

For the topping:

Cube the cold butter and flour together with two knives, cutting, until the mixture resembles the size of peas. Add the crumble to the peaches. Sprinkle the sliced almonds onto the top of the crumble. 

Bake for 35 minutes @ 375 degrees, or until golden brown.

Serve with warm cream.

4 new red potatoes, sliced thin 

1 red onion, diced

4 cloves of garlic, minced

1 bunch of kale, chopped roughly

1 pound Italian sausage

4 cups chicken broth 

1/2 cup white wine

1 cup water

1/2 cup heavy cream

olive oil

parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (I like one with fennel)

1 teaspoon chicken paste

In a heavy pan, sauté the onions in the olive oil, add the crumbled meat and cook until done. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute or so. Drain the meat if there is any grease. 

Return to the pan and add white wine. Cook for a minute and add the chicken paste seasonings. Now add the potatoes and the chicken broth, covering to cook for 10-15 minutes on low heat. 

Test the potatoes for doneness, adding water if needed. When just before done (tender crisp), add the chopped kale and cover the pan with the lid. Return to a simmer for 3 minutes.

Turn heat off. 

Add the heavy cream.

Add the cheese just before serving. Of course, now you need an endless salad and some breadsticks. 


French onion soup

French Onion Soup

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoon butter

6 large Vidalia onions, halved and sliced

4 cups beef broth

2 cups chicken broth

1 tablespoon French Provence seasoning


1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon good balsamic (I use fig)

fresh croutons

Swiss cheese slices

In a heavy pan, heat the olive oil and the butter. Add the onions and sauté until caramelized, this could take an hour. 

Add the seasonings and broths to the finished onions and simmer on low until the liquid is reduced by half. This is where you flavor is developed. Slow and low.

Just before serving, add the balsamic and stir. Cover and keep warm. 

To serve, lay the cheese on bottom of the bowl and pour a ladle of piping hot soup over the cheese. Float the fresh croutons on the top.
