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.

Homemade Ranch Dressing and Dip

Homemade Ranch Dressing and Dip by myra byanka

This delicious dressing and dip (e.g. crudités, chicken wings) takes some prep time, but is so much better than bottled dressing, which has, to me, and unpleasant preservative aftertaste.

Grilled Salmon with Tomatoes and Cilantro Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Tomatoes and Cilantro Sauce by Salad Foodie

A dear friend prepared this for us and it's become our prized way of enjoying salmon fillets. She calls it Salmon Supreme, but I call it Salmon Divine! Tomatoes, onion, garlic and cilantro cook down to make the savory sauce for grilled salmon. Serve atop your choice of rice or pasta and add a side of bright vegetables or salad.

Tex-Mex Tacos al Carbon

Tex-Mex Tacos al Carbon by myra byanka

Use marinated steak, skirt steak or flank steak (my fave) for these grilled beef tacos. Serve with warm flour or corn tortillas. If you like beef well-done, spring for rib-eye, as flank and skirt steak will toughen. Suggested Condiments: grilled scallions sour cream guacamole pico de gallo shredded lettuce shredded…

Venison or Elk and Apricot Mustard Sauce

Venison or Elk and Apricot Mustard Sauce by Amos Miller

As H.D. Thoreau said: "Simplify, simplify!" Time to share a favorite recipe, especially for my CES friend, Jed Gibbons, who asked for an idea for this cut of venison, and Nanette may like this, too. Gibbons, who is a heart-of-the-city dweller, is fortunate to have relatives who give him the outstanding wild meats - and thereby save…

Zippy Chicken Salad in Reed Avocado

Zippy Chicken Salad in Reed Avocado by Amos Miller

I don't present this as anything other than a great entree using some elements grown on the farm. It is sort of a fruity, curried Waldorf Salad...(it' s also great served on a tender roll, or…
