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! (This was before the era of food safety regulation and inspection - I just made it in our home kitchen!) Dad had taught me how to make his chili, and everyone agreed it was in a class of its…

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…

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.

Chili con Carne - Stove Top or Crock Pot!

Chili con Carne - Stove Top or Crock Pot! by Salad Foodie

Hurray for fall and chili time! This makes a batch for about 5 adult servings, but there’s no such thing as having too much chili. You can freeze leftovers or just double the recipe and freeze the extra for busy week nights. I try to make a day ahead to deepen the flavors.

Sauerbraten Abkürzung

Sauerbraten Abkürzung by Salad Foodie

You already know what sauerbraten is, yes? Well to that I add Abkürzung: German for "short cut" (let's hope my Googled translation is correct.) After checking out several versions of sauerbraten, I blended a few ideas and ingredients from several and came up with my own time-saving formula! The roast cooks in a spicy sweet-sour…

Casablanca Curried Chicken (Tagine)

Casablanca Curried Chicken (Tagine) by Salad Foodie

A healthy Moroccan thick stew or tagine to enjoy with rice, couscous or pita bread. Suit the degree of curry and hot pepper to your family’s taste. Lamb or beef can be subbed for chicken. Leftovers improve in flavor, and freeze well too.
