Honey Rosemary Chicken

Honey Rosemary Chicken by Salad Foodie

I really liked the marinade/glaze and its rosemary and balsamic flavors. If preferred, substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts and/or thighs or other chicken parts (baking time for smaller or thicker pieces will need to be adjusted.) This recipe will lend itself to your busy schedule: (1) Marinate the chicken in fridge while you…

Oatmeal Blondies

Oatmeal Blondies by Farrell May Podgorsek

I couldn't decide what to make one day. Did I want Blondies or Oatmeal Cookies. Why not both? The bars came out exactly as I wanted them to. Moist on the inside like a good Blondie should be, with a nice chewy texture from the rolled oats. I made these with chocolate chips and cinnamon, a great combination. Other nice additions would…

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…

Ham & Cabbage Hash

Ham & Cabbage Hash by Salad Foodie

This is a fast dinner-in-a-skillet recipe, and a good way to use up leftover ham or roast beef. Lots of vegetables make the meat go further and keep calories, fat, sodium and carbs to a reasonable level. A healthy and homey stand-by recipe for breakfast and/or casual dinners.

Carmelized Apple Tart with Sherry Crust

Carmelized Apple Tart with Sherry Crust by Farrell May Podgorsek

This crust complements many fillings. The Carmelized Apple in Cider Sauce and tart crust are prepared and cooked separately, then combined and baked for a few minutes. The crust stays flaky and the apples soft and carmelized. It was a perfect ending for Thanksgiving dinner. Be sure to always use a good quality drinking sherry.…

Perfect Bread and Butter Pickles

Perfect Bread and Butter Pickles by Farrell May Podgorsek

Not too sweet and not too sour, these old-fashioned pickles are crisp and crunchy. " Better than Grandma's" is the comment I most often hear. They are great for snacking on and perfect on a hamburger or hot dog. Refrigerator pickles are quick to make and will last in the refrigerator for at least 3 weeks. I use a mandolin style slicer…

Green Beans, New Potatoes and Bacon

Green Beans, New Potatoes and Bacon by Salad Foodie

A delicious side to serve with meat, or as a main luncheon dish with salad. Honestly I could almost eat a whole plateful of this! It is so simple but so tasty. First run-through I followed the recipe exactly from Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook by Harvest House Publishers 2010. Having made it several times since I made only minor…

Bourbon Pecan Cake

Bourbon Pecan Cake by Farrell May Podgorsek

This versatile cake has a mild bourbon flavor. It is a popular adult birthday cake in my family. Chocolate lovers can add chocolate chips to the topping. Frosting lovers can make a layer cake to fill and frost. Cream cheese or buttercream made with bourbon would be nice. Tip: Make sure that the Bourbon you use is not harsh. For a…

Favorite Pumpkin Bread

Favorite Pumpkin Bread by Salad Foodie

This is even good the day of baking, but improves and mellows with age. Freezes well, but it's hard to keep out of the fresh baked to have any left for the freezer!

Autumn Spice Cake

Autumn Spice Cake by Farrell May Podgorsek

One of my favorite creations. I was going to make my carrot cake which calls for pureed carrots, and realized I had no carrots. It's Fall, and what I did have on hand was canned butternut squash puree. The butternut squash purée and crushed pineapple add a subtle flavor and lots of moisture to this mildly spiced cake. Even the…

Plum Sherry Tart

Plum Sherry Tart by Farrell May Podgorsek

The sherry and lemon zest give this plum tart a unique flavor. Be sure to use ripe, flavorful plums. You can use frozen plums but thaw them or heat gently in a skillet before placing them on the crust. I prefer plum tarts that are not too sweet. Add extra sugar to the filling if you prefer a sweeter filling

Breakfast Smoothie

Breakfast Smoothie by eat.drink.and be merry.

It's true what they say, "you are what you eat". Ever since I began making this smoothie part of my morning routine, I have noticed a difference in the way I look and feel. My skin looks brighter, my nails are stronger, and I feel like everyone around me (including Eric) has come down with something and somehow I have remained…
