Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so!

Chicken Chili

Chicken Chili by Salad Foodie

Classic comfort foods can be made healthier without giving up on good taste. Case in point - this Chicken Chili recipe. Fat is reduced in the sautéing of vegetables and by substituting chicken for beef. But there are plenty of flavors going on here so you won't ask "Where's the beef?"

Arroz con Pollo - Yellow Rice and Chicken

Arroz con Pollo - Yellow Rice and Chicken by Salad Foodie

Spanish, Cuban, South American - a traditional and popular ethnic dish, this ranks among my favorite comfort food at its best! Most often accompanied by black beans (see link) and green peas. Rice takes on a yellow cast from that most expensive of all herbs - saffron. My mom-in-law used a flavoring packet called Vigo which contains…

Veggie Dumplin Chowder

Veggie Dumplin Chowder by Suzi

I put this recipe on my web site for my daughter, Marie to make for her family, which was easier than telling her how to do it over the phone. The photo is hers and it looks like she added peas. I hate peas so I don't put them in. Traditionally this is as good ole Southern dish better known as Chicken and Dumplings, but being a…
