Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick!

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

Scalloped potatoes cooked in 12 minutes? Compare that to the hour-and-a-half baking time most scalloped potato recipes require, and this recipe may become a year round “fav” for you since the microwave keeps your kitchen cool. Another appeal is the unusual and subtle flavor Swiss cheese gives to this dish. The recipe is based on one…

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce by John Spottiswood

My father-in-law has become an amazing cook, and he made this as part of our Easter lunch this year with the fabulous pork tenderloin recipe (see linked below). This version isn't gloppy with extra sauce like you find in many Chinese take out places. It's very flavorful but also relatively light and healthful. He made a TON of it,…

Candied Sweet Potatoes/Yams (Pressure Cooker Friendly)

Candied Sweet Potatoes/Yams (Pressure Cooker Friendly) by Foodiewife

This recipe is slightly adapted from “The Harvey House Cookbook” by George H. Foster and Peter C. Weiglin that we found this excellent recipe for sweet potatoes candied with confectioners’ sugar and butter. As the whole thing bakes, the sugar melts and caramelizes, becoming a brittle and crunchy shell covering the soft orange potatoes…

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style by Amos Miller

I have never been a really big fan of cauliflower, but I love potatoes and spices. This dish, known as 'Alu Ghobi', has long been a favorite vegetable side dish in my kitchen. It is simple, easy to make and very healthy for you. One seldom finds a cauliflower dish on the average restaurant menu. But you need not be a…

Cumin Rice

Cumin Rice by Joyce Leung

This rice is a delicious mix of cumin and cinnamon. It provides a nice, slightly sweet flavor, that is a perfect complement to any middle eastern dish. The only dishes I would avoid serving this with are sweet dishes with dates, figs, etc. I served it with my Braised Lamb with Beans. It was great!

In-a-Pinch Cranberry Sauce made from Dried Cranberries

In-a-Pinch Cranberry Sauce made from Dried Cranberries by Salad Foodie

I serve turkey year round but forget to keep canned cranberry sauce on hand; even when I do it's hard to use up the whole can because not everone eats it. Recently the craving for cranberries with roast turkey breast was too strong. I grabbed the Craisin bag from the pantry and experimented making a small amount of cranberry sauce.…

Chili Sauce

Chili Sauce by Salad Foodie

Chili sauce is one answer to that bumper tomato harvest. The perky piquant sauce can compliment many classic recipes like meatballs, meatloaf, cutlets, chops, tenders, eggs, potatoes, etc. This recipe is from Ball Blue Book of Canning (2010) and is what I’d deem a standard chili sauce for a wide variety of family uses. It is not…

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is incredibly easy and really tasty. We're healthy eaters, so frying tomatoes isn't the first thing that comes to mind. But you have got to taste these. Amazing! Disclosure: we used fresh tomatoes from our garden that were really flavorful. You may not get the same results with less flavorful tomatoes. We served with…

Admittedly, this doesn't capture the crunch outside of the normal method of making persian rice. But if you are just looking for a fluffy and buttery rice to serve with a stew or tagine, this works wonderfully and is super easy.
