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,…

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…

Pear & Fig Chutney

Pear & Fig Chutney by Amos Miller

I still had a few pears from the orchard and the figs are almost finished. Why not a Pear & Fig chutney? Easily done! This is everything a chutney should be. The flavors of the pears, combined with the figs' texture and sweetness, the plump raisins and blend of vinegars easily marry to the aromatic spices. And a quality cracked…

Pawpaw Cookies

Pawpaw Cookies by James Buel

Pawpaws have been called poor man's bananas. If you can't find pawpaws in your backyard, as did the ancient Seminoles and Choctaw Indians, you can substitute bananas in this recipe. Wait until the banana skins are speckled and nearly overripe. That speckling is natural sugar.

Lime Gelatin with Pears and Cherries

Lime Gelatin with Pears and Cherries by Salad Foodie

My aunt made this gelatin frequently in winter especially during the holidays, and with its predominant green and red colors, it makes an appealing luncheon dessert. The recipe posted is as close as my memories allowed. However today with the variety of health issues guests may have, I frequently offer 2 versions, the one below and a…

Joy of Cooking's Peach Pie I.

Joy of Cooking's Peach Pie I. by K. Garner

I love this recipe because it highlights the red interior of the halved peaches and looks gorgeous. It's faster to prepare because there's less slicing, and the single pie crust saves dough--no pun intended.

I like this native dessert and I'm missing it much! This is an old recipe by my grandma. No one makes it better than her for me :)

Budwig Diet Smoothie

Budwig Diet Smoothie by John Spottiswood

Someone turned me on to Dr. Johanna Budwig recently. I read a bit about her research and her diet online. While there isn't a lot of hard evidence behind it, she was definitely ahead of her time in recognizing the importance of good fats, and the harmful effects of bad fats, in our modern diets. She strongly encouraged the…

In-a-Pinch Cranberry Sauce made from Dried Cranberries

In-a-Pinch Cranberry Sauce made from Dried Cranberries by Salad Foodie

I serve turkey year round but forget to keep canned cranberry sauce on hand; even when I do it's hard to use up the whole can because not everone eats it. Recently the craving for cranberries with roast turkey breast was too strong. I grabbed the Craisin bag from the pantry and experimented making a small amount of cranberry sauce.…

Raspberry espuma or foam

Raspberry espuma or foam by Guest of winter

Maybe you've never heard about the iSi Whip, which I use for making whipped cream since some years ago, because there's no other device as good for serving perfectly whipped cream, straight from the bottle. Mr. Ferrán Adriá,the famous Spanish cook, in a quest to provide espumas, foams, mousses, or whatever you want to call them…

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

I haven’t found a quicker apple crisp recipe that tastes as good (or better) than oven-baked. Simple prep and fast cooking make this a perfect dessert when you’re short on time. Plus you can make it year round as the microwave won't heat up the kitchen.
