African Chicken in Peanut Sauce

African Chicken in Peanut Sauce by John Spottiswood

I first had this in graduate school when a classmate from Ghana cooked it for an International progressive dinner. I fell in love with the combination of sweet peanuts and pungent spices. This is not a flavor you will easily forget, and it will keep you coming back for more!

Curried Lentil Stew with rice

Curried Lentil Stew with rice by Nancy Miyasaki

This curried lentil stew is an awesome winter dish. It will warm you and sooth you with its soft texture and rich flavor. Vegetarians can leave out the bacon and ham. Those who relish Indian flavors can double the tumeric, cumin, ginger, and cloves.

Plum Pineapple Jam

Plum Pineapple Jam by Salad Foodie

I devised this recipe when I wanted a variation of plum jam and thought why not use canned crushed pineapple? The result was beautiful jewel-tone jam with a pleasing fruit combo of flavors and textures. No added commercial pectin here, so if the thought of standing and stirring, oh about a half hour, scares you away, go with the…

Tangy Tomato Dressing

Tangy Tomato Dressing by Hungry Harps

This is a copy-cat recipe I found here at Meemo's Kitchen. It is the Tangy Tomato Dressing from Outback Steakhouse. Although I am not a regular at Outback I have been there enough to know it is my favorite dressing there. This recipe is super easy to make and you will be thrilled with the results. :) I also used the dressing on some…

Cranberry Torte

Cranberry Torte by Salad Foodie

An elegant dessert recipe that makes a showy finale to the holiday meal. It’s a make-ahead and freeze recipe, which will simplify matters on the day you’ll use it. When it’s time for dessert, remove from freezer, add the glaze and serve. A stand mixer works best to whip the filling if available: be sure bowl and beaters are clean and…

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…

Green Chicken Chili

Green Chicken Chili by Nancy Miyasaki

This isn't your thick beans and meat sort of chili, but it is absolutely delicious. Think a cross between a soup and a traditional chili. It's pretty healthy too with white meat chicken, hominy, and potatoes.

Southwestern Shell Pasta Salad

Southwestern Shell Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

Chop, chop, chop and get your frustrations out making this pasta salad with south-of-the-border appeal. Choose your heat level by amount of peppers, hot sauce and chilies you add. This yields a generous bowl and serves 12-14. Make this ahead of time and chill ~ if you can wait and can keep everyone out too!

Creole Pralines

Creole Pralines by Amos Miller

Better than a cookie (sorry bakers, but this is a Creole group) and with the true taste of New Orleans, Creole Pralines are one of the signature treats in the Big Easy! It is time to play 'soft ball', and we're not talking the sport - we're talking Creole candy. When the recipe calls for your concoction on the stove to reach the…
