Cornbread Waffles

Cornbread Waffles by Salad Foodie

Necessity is the mother of invention. In this instance I am going into the second month of home remodeling life without a kitchen. We either eat cereal, eat out or use small kitchen appliances to cook or heat up food. When given a container of homemade chili recently, I decided to try cooking my favorite cornbread recipe in the…

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.)

Green Bean, Carrot and Mushroom Medley

Green Bean, Carrot and Mushroom Medley by Salad Foodie

A quick-to-fix green bean side dish or vegetarian main dish. I like to use my steamer for the beans and carrots, but they could also be boiled briefly and drained. This makes a beautiful presentation with interesting flavor combinations. The real trick is getting the seasoning right. Experiment with your favorite herb combinations,…

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!

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.

Caraway Rye Rolls or Sliders

Caraway Rye Rolls or Sliders by Salad Foodie

Perfect as rolls, or as sliders for corned beef sandwiches. Bake them apart on baking sheets for sliders, or in a 9 x 13 baking pan for pan rolls. I used a bread machine on the dough setting, then shaped, and baked in oven, but you can also make these in the conventional yeast roll method without a bread machine.

Oat Pecan Praline Cookies

Oat Pecan Praline Cookies by Salad Foodie

Chewy, slightly soft texture with a hint of caramel pecan, these attractive cookies make a nice snack for company with coffee, tea or milk. Sometimes we bakers just have to break out of the oatmeal-raisin cookie rut, and these certainly do!
