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…

Polish Sausage and Sauerkraut in sauce

Polish Sausage and Sauerkraut in sauce by Therese

If your not lucky enough to be able to find fresh Polish sausage this can be made with just smoked kielbasa. Personally I put both types of sausages in this dish. I have also cooked this dish in a crockpot after I have cooked the onions, and sausages and fried the bacon in a separate pan then added everything to the crockpot…

Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

(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…

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce by Amos Miller

Leaves turning, cooler breezes blowing - time for a comforting pork roast with onions, apples and hard cider. This is a deceptively simple dish that Claire Robinson turned me on to, and is loaded with country flavors. The hard cider reduces down to a savory sauce after Granny Smith apples and sliced onions are caramelized. A very…

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk by Mihir Shah

I adapted this from a recipe I found in the San Francisco Chronicle. My parents have told me that eating Black-Eyed Peas for the New Year was good luck. I made these for my New Year's Eve party and they were a big hit. Went really well with the Steamed Salmon I prepared.

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?" Based on a recipe from Patti LaBelle's Light…
