Easy Fruit Cobbler

Easy Fruit Cobbler by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super simple dessert that's great for a large or small gathering. I generally use nectarines or peaches and some sort of berries, but cherries plums and apricots will work too.

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.

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…

Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad

Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad by Angie Morris

This Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad has been a favorite in our family for many years especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I found it in a magazine years ago and credit for this goes to Helen Clement of Hemet, California. I chose to reduce her nutmeg amount from 1/2 to 1/4 teaspoon , which gives it just a tiny hint of nutmeg,…

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…

Lemon Rosemary Fig Jam

Lemon Rosemary Fig Jam by Amos Miller

The figs are ripe. sweet and the season is short. Fresh rosemary, lemon zest and juice marry perfectly to create a jam to be eaten with bold cheeses as an appetizer. Little work to create, long, slow cooking time and a couple of sterilized jars will carry this treat well into the Winter - provided you can avoid eating it all…

Granny Smith's Apple Pandowdy

Granny Smith's Apple Pandowdy by Amos Miller

Makes your eyes bug out & your stomach say "Howdy!" Fusion can be confusin', so let's get back to an ol' timey American dessert, not found on menus in fancy restaurants. This is just good country food, like I got when I'd have dinner at Nellie Keeling's home up Horse Mill Hollow, near Glasgow, W. Va. Pandowdy is a highly…

Budwig Diet Smoothie

Budwig Diet Smoothie by John Spottiswood

Someone turned me on to Dr. Johanna Budwig recently. I read a bit about her research and her diet online. While there isn't a lot of hard evidence behind it, she was definitely ahead of her time in recognizing the importance of good fats, and the harmful effects of bad fats, in our modern diets. She strongly encouraged the…

Strawberry and Rhubarb Tapioca Pudding

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.

Crowd-wowing Flat Apple Pie!

Crowd-wowing Flat Apple Pie! by Salad Foodie

In my all time top FAVS of pie recipes, this pastry is like a Texas-size turnover! Baked in a jelly roll pan, it’s a cinch to transport to meetings or parties, and even easier to serve. Be forewarned that there are some extra steps to this colossal pie, but don't special occasions merit them? A great addition to holiday dessert…

Banana Split Pie

Banana Split Pie by Mary Joseph

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of a baker, but this is an old family recipe that has been gratiously "given" to me for use in my cookbook so I want to share it here with you all. Its one of the very few dessert recipes I make and its addicting, so look out. To this day if I show up to Thanksgiving without this people are…
