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…

Testing Yeast for Freshness + A Source for Bread-Making Troubleshooting

Testing Yeast for Freshness + A Source for Bread-Making Troubleshooting by Salad Foodie

When yeast dough bread-making has poor outcomes, it can be frustrating to figure out what went wrong. Heavy coarse grain, collapsing loaf, dense, gummy chew - these are just a few of the problems encountered. Was it the yeast, flour, measurements or…

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.)

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,…

Yogurt Pancakes with Blueberries

Yogurt Pancakes with Blueberries by Salad Foodie

Light and sublime, these pancakes are perfect for summer’s bounty of blueberries. Whole wheat pastry flour is recommended and gives the most tender results, but all purpose flour works fine too. I used Greek plain yogurt but regular yogurt or sour cream can be subbed.

Quick Meatloaf & Potatoes

Quick Meatloaf & Potatoes by Salad Foodie

Start to finish this can be on the table in 30 minutes, which represents 15 minutes of prep and 15 minutes cook time in the microwave. This meal-in-one recipe comes from the heyday of microwave cooking in the 80's and 90's, and is always a family pleaser. Of course it can be baked in a 350 degree F. conventional oven instead, for an…

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.

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.
