Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon

Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon by Amos Miller

When the daytime temperature hits around 50 degrees and the evening plunges to 30 or lower, it is time to begin the annual maple syrup processing in our neck of the woods. We use it for many things and one of them is this cornbread. I first had a jalapeno cornbread in Texas, made by my sister's cowboy husband's aunt Netha, and…

Favorite Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional)

Favorite Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional) by Salad Foodie

My whole wheat bread of choice. Can be made conventional yeast method, but I always START with my Toshiba Bread Machine on the whole wheat setting, then INTERRUPT the cycle just before baking begins; that way I have a built-in bread mixer, kneader and proof oven, but I get to shape and control the baking to perfection, and have bread…

Multi-Grain Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional)

Multi-Grain Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional) by Salad Foodie

An all-around favorite in our family. Serve with homemade soup, use for grilled sandwiches and as toast. The variety of grains provides a nutty texture. But if you don’t have all the grains on hand, just sub whole wheat for the same amounts. Can be made conventional yeast method, but I always START with my Toshiba Bread Machine on…

Beer Bread (by Bread Machine or Conventional Bread Method)

Beer Bread (by Bread Machine or Conventional Bread Method) by Salad Foodie

This recipe for Beer Bread has a fine grain, firm crust, light volume, nice moist quality plus a slight taste similar to sourdough. I use the bread machine as a convenience - to make the dough and proof it. Then I interrupt the cycle just prior to the baking function so I can shape to a regular loaf pan, give it an extra and final…

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread by Salad Foodie

Blue cornmeal imparts a blue-violet cast to the bread, a coarser consistency and a sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white cornmeal. It is 20% higher in protein and has a lower glycemic index, good news for those with elevated blood sugar. However it can be difficult to find! Arrowhead and Bob's Red Mill make it and some health…

Buttermilk Banana Bread by Nancy Miyasaki

I've made dozens of different types of banana bread, and this is one of my favorites. Our kids devoured it! My oldest told me "this is the best banana bread you've ever made, Mom." That's high praise from a 9th grader!

Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins (with bread machine dough option)

Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins (with bread machine dough option) by Salad Foodie

Whole wheat, bran and honey - a perfect threesome! Regular hamburger buns and even bread slices at times have too much bread volume for me, so I often turn to commercial sandwich thins. When I tried this recipe from breadworld.com it enabled me to have…

Southern Corn Bread

Southern Corn Bread by Salad Foodie

I was hesitant to try this because it was different than any corn bread I’ve ever made. The proportion of corn meal to flour for one, and then hardly any sugar. Now having made it I’ve decided southerners have it all right about corn bread, and I prefer this to the usual sweet variety. I like to use one third of the cornmeal as…

Williams Sonoma Triple Chocolate Brownies

Williams Sonoma Triple Chocolate Brownies by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a very popular recipe that I simplified a bit without losing any of it's goodness. You can serve these when you feel like a dark chocolate cake but don't have time to hassle with it. They make a wonderful end to any meal! They are super chocolaty, so they go really well with a scoop of vanilla or coffee ice cream!

Pumpkin Cookies with Icing

Pumpkin Cookies with Icing by Nancy Miyasaki

I served these at my October book club along with the Pumpkin Macadamia Bars. They were good, and the icing makes them attractive, but the Pumpkin Macadamia Bars were the bigger hit. That said, they make an attractive combination and it's fun to try one of each. So if you are looking for a nice combination of sweets to put out on…

Favorite Oatmeal Muffins

Favorite Oatmeal Muffins by Salad Foodie

No, not just my favorite oatmeal muffin, these are actually my Number 1 Favorite Muffin ~ period! I love that they are comparatively low-fat and won’t make your fingers greasy as you eat them. I love the crunch of oatmeal, the sweetness of raisins and cinnamon, and the spongy texture buttermilk imparts to baked products. I love…
