Favorite Coleslaw Dressing

Favorite Coleslaw Dressing by Salad Foodie

A basic mayonnaise-based dressing that we make ahead and have on hand when crunchy coleslaw is on the menu for lunch or dinner. This dressing keeps well for several weeks refrigerated in a mason jar, a vintage bottle from the thrift store, or recycled dressing container (see photos). Yield is a little over 2 cups and will dress a…

Citrus Pepper Chicken Bacon Cheeseburgers

Citrus Pepper Chicken Bacon Cheeseburgers by Patti Fisher

Citrus Pepper Bacon Chicken Cheeseburgers because Ken loves cheeseburgers or anything with cheese and bacon. Patti wanted to make the burgers a little healthier and she loves chicken. These were super simple and full of flavor. A definite for our next camping or tailgating adventure. I think the Briggs Citrus Pepper Seasoning just…

Red Cabbage Coleslaw

Red Cabbage Coleslaw by Salad Foodie

Think outside the box for your next slaw with this creamy deep red cabbage version. The dried cranberries are camouflaged by the cabbage color and provide a pleasant sweet taste surprise, while walnuts add extra crunch.

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.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies by Salad Foodie

These peanut butter cookies have crunchy chopped peanuts and either chopped semisweet chocolate chunks or jumbo chocolate chips. They are somewhat chewy and moist if the baking is followed carefully, though you can bake an extra minute or two for a crisper version if you prefer (see Photo 2.)

Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Crisscross Cookies

Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Crisscross Cookies by Salad Foodie

Peanut butter cookie recipes abound, but none of them came close to rekindling memories of the favorite from my youth - until I came across this one in an Old Farmer's Almanac. The first batch I made convinced me the recipe was the one from my early baking years. Ah - answered prayers!

Lotta Cheese Cheese Burger

Lotta Cheese Cheese Burger by Patti Fisher

We got a complaint from some friends that when they go out for burgers the meat is paper thin and the cheese, if you can find any, is tasteless. We had no choice but to say “See you tomorrow, come hungry!” Everyone was happily stuffed and knew they were eating a cheese burger. They may be back again tomorrow. Not only was there 2…

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies by Salad Foodie

Moist and chewy, these will help satisfy your choco-holic inclinations. Baking chocolate rather than cocoa gives a richer color and flavor than cocoa, and coconut help keep them moist.

Stuffed Double Cheese Bacon Burgers

Stuffed Double Cheese Bacon Burgers by Patti Fisher

Ken made his amazing cold smoked cheese again and before Patti ate it all for snacks we decided to use some for recipes. We had been talking about stuffed burgers for awhile and these were so good. Patti stuffed them with our cold smoked mozzarella, then topped the burgers with bacon squares and smoked cheddar. Perfect. There aren’t a…

The Cajun Burger

The Cajun Burger by Patti Fisher

Patti had a hankering for Jambalaya, but Ken had to have a bacon cheese burger. So, we compromised and made a burger with our favorite Chef of the Future Cajun Seasoning on a bacon cheeseburger topped with extra large shrimp. It came out great, especially adding our bacon square. Our first ingredient in our cooking is imagination, but…
