Easy Sour Cream Biscuits

Easy Sour Cream Biscuits by Salad Foodie

Quick to the table because there's no cutting of shortening into flour mixture. Just stir in sour cream, knead lightly, pat out, cut and bake. Couldn't be simpler to get homemade biscuits on the table. I like to use up the tail end of the sour cream this way.

Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Years ago I had an Italian neighbor who became a close friend. I always commented on her delicious meatballs and one day she shared the recipe with me. I have made them ever since about the same way. You can vary the meats using what's on hand, but I usually select lean ground beef, turkey, chicken or lamb, with an equal amount of…

CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS

CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

The char siu bao is a dimsum staple. Sweet, juicy bits of Chinese bbq pork oozing out of the soft, sweet bun. The secret to creating that char siu bao taste is to use dried onions (McCormicks). Please look up the Basic Yeast Dough for Steamed Buns that accompanies this recipe. If you don't have steamer baskets, use a wok…

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

Three Sisters Soup (Beans, Corn and Squash Soup) with Crock Pot Option by Salad Foodie

“Three Sisters” refers to the three main crops of Native Americans: beans, corn and squash. The crops are planted close together and in this way benefit from one another. Corn stalks provide the structure for beans to climb, beans provide nitrogen to…

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Chicken Lettuce Wraps by Joanne Weir

This is one of those dishes that I have to order every single time I go to Chinatown and see them on the menu. I love the crunch of the lettuce, the saltiness of the soy sauce, and the sweetness of the oyster sauce. You can substitute turkey, pork or squab with equally delicious results.

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies by J. Gino Genovesi

This is an original recipe. I was making them, years ago, because my children wanted a "loaded" oatmeal cookie that was good, soft and plump. Now my grand children like them and I thought I would pass it on so others can enjoy them. They are easy to prepare and delicious. Chef J. Gino Genovesi

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars!

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars! by Salad Foodie

This recipe has been circulating around the Internet as “Lemon Brownies”, but I think it deserves a more descriptive name. These treats are a delicacy and are more “dainty” than brownies. They have no chocolate, are not brown, and NOT as sweet nor…

French Bread by Traditional Yeast Method (no bread machine)

French Bread by Traditional Yeast Method (no bread machine) by Salad Foodie

Experimenting with several ways to get a good loaf of French bread without using my bread machine, I am ready to share this version over all I tried. It has a chewy crust and a beautiful fine grain. While my bread machine version (see "Useful Links" below) takes only about 5 minutes of active chef time, this recipe requires perhaps 35…

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

This is a recipe for the dough of the fluffy white skins of the char siu bao and the shanghai cabbage buns. It's truly versatile -- you can use the same dough and fill it with sweetened mashed red beans or lotus seeds for a dessert treat. Or just steam it by itself to turn it into "man tou" essentially steamed white bread that is…

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

I haven’t found a quicker apple crisp recipe that tastes as good (or better) than oven-baked. Simple prep and fast cooking make this a perfect dessert when you’re short on time. Plus you can make it year round as the microwave won't heat up the kitchen.

MANGO PUDDING

MANGO PUDDING by Linda Tay Esposito

A newer addition to the dim sum repertoire, the mango pudding is influenced by Western desserts techniques (since the Chinese are not too big on desserts! "Not too sweet" is always a sign of a good dessert for the Chinese!). Instead of heavy cream, you can substitute with coconut milk to give it a more tropical flavor.

Chile Rellenos Soufflé

Chile Rellenos Soufflé by Salad Foodie

If you're craving a chile relleno fix, give this light south-of-the-border layered soufflé a try. I looked at several recipes then came up with my own combination and it fits my need for a guilt-free alternative. To save time use canned whole green chiles, or char your fresh garden ones if desired. One batch makes 4 generous-size…
