Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

A nice choice for a summer cookout or picnic, this pasta salad can be made up to a day ahead for convenience. My pasta choice for this is ditalini, a small pasta often used in soups (this can be hard to locate but Barilla sells a one pound box.) Or substitute your own small pasta FAV such as elbows or shells.

Chocolate Tapioca Pudding

Chocolate Tapioca Pudding by Salad Foodie

Take old-fashioned tapioca pudding to a grand level for a special Valentine dessert - add chocolate! Be patient as you cook the pudding, it can take 20 to 30 minutes of stirring to melt the chocolate and reach proper consistency without scorching. The pudding will thicken as it cools.

Cranberries with Jezebel Sauce

Cranberries with Jezebel Sauce by Amos Miller

If you don't care for the tart tang of cranberries - try this. My dear friend, Gail, serves this dish her way frequently and everyone likes it because it is sweet & spicy and just tangy enough. A great condiment. I've modified Gail's recipe a tad and share it with you. Cranberries will no longer be a Thanksgiving side dish. This…

Kale with Kalamata Olives

Kale with Kalamata Olives by Salad Foodie

Kale is hearty and healthy, and often teams in winter soups with potatoes and beans. But in this recipe, based on Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, it takes center stage. Quick to prepare it is a pleasant change from other green sides. Don’t let the volume of a one pound bunch of kale scare you off - it cooks down!

Strawberry and Rhubarb Tapioca Pudding by Salad Foodie

A delightful tapioca pudding for a special occasion. So ruby-red pretty, and with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, you'll think you died and went to heaven. If fresh rhubarb is not available substitute frozen, and mash or cut up after simmering if necessary.
