Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Green Beans, New Potatoes and Bacon

Green Beans, New Potatoes and Bacon by Salad Foodie

A delicious side to serve with meat, or as a main luncheon dish with salad. Honestly I could almost eat a whole plateful of this! It is so simple but so tasty. First run-through I followed the recipe exactly from Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook by Harvest House Publishers 2010. Having made it several times since I made only minor…

Cranberry Torte

Cranberry Torte by Salad Foodie

An elegant dessert recipe that makes a showy finale to the holiday meal. It’s a make-ahead and freeze recipe, which will simplify matters on the day you’ll use it. When it’s time for dessert, remove from freezer, add the glaze and serve. A stand mixer works best to whip the filling if available: be sure bowl and beaters are clean and…

Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes

Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes by Robyn Savoie

Since we can have great tomatoes year around, we can always enjoy their fresh flavor this way. Remember: Never store your fresh tomatoes in the refrigerator, the cold ruins their taste and texture. Keep them right on the counter so they'll be sweeter and juicier.

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Italian-American in origin, this soup was really misnamed. “Wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language for 'minestra maritata', a reference to the fact that greens and meat go well together. (Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…

Sweet Potato Bisque

Sweet Potato Bisque by Robyn Savoie

This soup gets its wonderfully creamy texture from pureed carrots and sweet potatoes rather than cream, a dairy product I discourage due to its high saturated-fat content.

Peach Rum Sauce by Salad Foodie

Lip-smacking delicious! A spoonful of this delicately flavored luscious sauce turns ordinary desserts into memorable treats. Warm and serve over ice cream, or use for French toast or your morning breakfast bread. The first time I made this recipe (found on freshpreserving.com) I was skeptically cautious, canning it in small jars to…

Creole Pralines

Creole Pralines by Amos Miller

Better than a cookie (sorry bakers, but this is a Creole group) and with the true taste of New Orleans, Creole Pralines are one of the signature treats in the Big Easy! It is time to play 'soft ball', and we're not talking the sport - we're talking Creole candy. When the recipe calls for your concoction on the stove to reach the…

Almost A Borscht Soup

Almost A Borscht Soup by Glenn

I wanted a hearty soup for lunch and had a left-over half head of boiled cabbage. What else could I do but go wild adding borschtish ingredients until I almost lost track. Bottom line, if you don't have an ingredient just leave it out or substitute something else. Have fun and be surprised, like I was, that this came out tasting…
