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.

CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style

CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style by Amos Miller

My buddy, Ed, of Puerto Rican descent, spent his time in the Air Force in Central and South America. Ed's favorite dish: ceviche! He tells endless tales of trying ceviche, which is seafoods 'cooked' in nothing but citrus juice. Ed always said that the ceviche he would eat by the gallon, if he could get it, was that he had in Costa…

THE Bacardi Rum Cake.....adjusted for today's box cake mixes by Salad Foodie

Several years ago Bacardi’s Rum Cake recipe used an 18 ½ ounce cake mix and box of instant vanilla pudding mix. Not long after that box cake mixes were developed with “pudding in the mix” which now are known as “super moist” or “deliciously moist.”…

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…

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…

Pear & Fig Chutney

Pear & Fig Chutney by Amos Miller

I still had a few pears from the orchard and the figs are almost finished. Why not a Pear & Fig chutney? Easily done! This is everything a chutney should be. The flavors of the pears, combined with the figs' texture and sweetness, the plump raisins and blend of vinegars easily marry to the aromatic spices. And a quality cracked…

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…

Bulgarian Makitzi

Bulgarian Makitzi by Casey Angelova

The makitzi that my mother-in-law makes are from her hometown of Berkovitza. She describes the recipe as very basic, so you can add any filler to the dough. The recipe is very rough as she doesn't really measure anything exactly, so I will use my description and her recipe to make this as clear as possible.

Tallerine Casserole

Tallerine Casserole by Salad Foodie

Tallerine, talerine, tallerini...I’ve no idea of the spelling or origin of this vintage casserole but it remains a crowd pleaser yet today. I’ve tweaked my 70's recipe somewhat ~ it’s one of those recipes that adapts easily to variations.

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”)

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”) by Kevin Olomon

During the off-season, when salmon aren’t readily available up north, Alaskan bears eat mainly nuts and berries. So to track a bear in the woods, you simply look to the forest floor and watch for “bear sign”. Need I say more? Ha! These are SO easy…

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…
