Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad

Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad by Angie Morris

This Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad has been a favorite in our family for many years especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I found it in a magazine years ago and credit for this goes to Helen Clement of Hemet, California. I chose to reduce her nutmeg amount from 1/2 to 1/4 teaspoon , which gives it just a tiny hint of nutmeg,…

Easy Sour Cream Biscuits

Easy Sour Cream Biscuits by Salad Foodie

Quick to the table because there's no cutting of shortening into flour mixture. Just stir in sour cream, knead lightly, pat out, cut and bake. Couldn't be simpler to get homemade biscuits on the table. I like to use up the tail end of the sour cream this way.

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

No Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookies by Veronica Gantley

These cookies are almost as easy to bake as they are to eat. This is a recipe my mom used to make when we were growing up. She used to make hers in bars not cookies. Somehow that seemed easier. So either way you make these, they are very easy to make. My daughter is fond of these cookies also.

Snickerdoodle Muffins

Snickerdoodle Muffins by Nancy Miyasaki

Every mother should have these in her repertoire. One bowl, pedestrian ingredients, and children absolutely love them. These are buttery, sweet, with a soft, pillow-like texture–nothing to get in the way of appreciative grunts. I doubled this recipe and got 17 muffins, so a single will probably yield 8.

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick!

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

Scalloped potatoes cooked in 12 minutes? Compare that to the hour-and-a-half baking time most scalloped potato recipes require, and this recipe may become a year round “fav” for you since the microwave keeps your kitchen cool. Another appeal is the unusual and subtle flavor Swiss cheese gives to this dish. The recipe is based on one…

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread by Salad Foodie

Blue cornmeal imparts a blue-violet cast to the bread, a coarser consistency and a sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white cornmeal. It is 20% higher in protein and has a lower glycemic index, good news for those with elevated blood sugar. However it can be difficult to find! Arrowhead and Bob's Red Mill make it and some health…

Beer Battered French Fried Onion Rings

Beer Battered French Fried Onion Rings by Robyn Savoie

When the Vidalia onions come into season, I make a batch or two of this and freeze them for later use. See freezing tips below. I'm not much of a beer drinker but I do like some offered by the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. Summer Shandy is my favorite and I stock up in the spring when it comes out. I use it in this recipe.…

Easy Candied Pecans by Salad Foodie

A snack for the gods! Sprinkle atop your favorite greens, blue cheese topped or chicken salad. For holiday entertaining leave the pecans in halves rather than chopping, and serve in a festive bowl.

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”)

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”) by Kevin Olomon

During the off-season, when salmon aren’t readily available up north, Alaskan bears eat mainly nuts and berries. So to track a bear in the woods, you simply look to the forest floor and watch for “bear sign”. Need I say more? Ha! These are SO easy…

Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits - Nuwave/Flavorwave Ovens

Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits - Nuwave/Flavorwave Ovens by Wendy Jarvis

These are Red Lobsters Cheddar Buscuits with a twist, they are made in your Nuwave/Flavorwave Ovens. Note: I add all together. If I have extra cheese I top with a bit of shredded cheese. You want to take these out as soon as they are done. Otherwise they will keep cooking!

In planning our menu this year, we decided to go for the traditional American organic beef burgers with all the fixings, two kinds of coleslaw, James Beards' sour cream slaw, a tart Indian cabbage dish, an Indian style potato salad, mixed wild greens…
