Caramel Pecan Pie

Caramel Pecan Pie by Salad Foodie

This is the only pecan pie recipe you will ever need. Trust me on this. My pecan-pie-hating friend Jerry sampled it one time, and became a believer, as have others! This is a great make-ahead pie as it freezes well. After baking and cooling, wrap in moisture-vapor proof wrap and freeze until the dinner party. This recipe has been an…

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

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.”…

Creole Rice Pudding

Creole Rice Pudding by Amos Miller

NEVER throw day-old rice away! Next time you have that extra-large Chinese take out and you have some of that white rice left over, you have the base of a fabulous rice pudding, New Orleans-style! This is NOT the junk you have to choose from for dessert ("jello, rice pudding, sherbet") after the regrettable meal at the greasy spoon…

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies by J. Gino Genovesi

This is an original recipe. I was making them, years ago, because my children wanted a "loaded" oatmeal cookie that was good, soft and plump. Now my grand children like them and I thought I would pass it on so others can enjoy them. They are easy to prepare and delicious. Chef J. Gino Genovesi

Fabulous 3 Cherry Pie

Fabulous 3 Cherry Pie by Amos Miller

Most folks don't have the luxury of owning a personal cherry orchard, so I modified this recipe using ingredients available at most stores. You'll save the picking and pitting time and end up with a fabulous pie that will thrill even those who say they do not care for cherry pie (I've had it happen). As a native-born…

Cajun Bread Pudding with Praline Sauce

Cajun Bread Pudding with Praline Sauce by Amos Miller

The Praline Sauce is a stand-alone that will add depth and excitement to any cake or pudding, but it marries perfectly with this Cajun-inspired recipe. This is a dish that I have served hundreds of times and is always a favorite - so much so that folks often ask for a serving or two 'to go'. Easy ingredients, easy to prepare.…

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

I haven’t found a quicker apple crisp recipe that tastes as good (or better) than oven-baked. Simple prep and fast cooking make this a perfect dessert when you’re short on time. Plus you can make it year round as the microwave won't heat up the kitchen.

Deep-South Amalgamation Cake

Deep-South Amalgamation Cake by J. Gino Genovesi

This is an old fashion ,traditional dessert in the South. It apparently has been around for many years. One can add just about anything in this cake , and it will stand out as a big winner. It takes many steps and patience, but the wait is worth it. This is not an original recipe but I have made some changes.

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…

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bar Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bar Cookies by Salad Foodie

Quick to make, these bar cookies are a sister version of drop cookies (the dough can actually be made into those if you prefer.) Oatmeal and nuts provide a light crunchiness to the moist and munchy texture. In brief - a delightful cookie your company will love!
