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.

Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon

Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon by Amos Miller

When the daytime temperature hits around 50 degrees and the evening plunges to 30 or lower, it is time to begin the annual maple syrup processing in our neck of the woods. We use it for many things and one of them is this cornbread. I first had a jalapeno cornbread in Texas, made by my sister's cowboy husband's aunt Netha, and…

Perfect New York Style Pizza Dough

Perfect New York Style Pizza Dough by John Spottiswood

I have a friend, Pete Miller, who has become a pizza guru. He attended classes held by Tony Gemignani (pizza god), and has tried endless recipes at home. So I asked him for his ultimate pizza dough recipe and he gave me this. It's adapted from the book PIZZA by Diane Morgan and Tony Gemignani. The recipe in the book calls for…

Halloween Finger Cookies

Halloween Finger Cookies by John Spottiswood

These taste like a rich biscotti. But the best thing about them is the spooky Halloween look! Try serving them at a Halloween party or bringing them to work. It feels creepy to eat them!

Favorite Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional)

Favorite Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional) by Salad Foodie

My whole wheat bread of choice. Can be made conventional yeast method, but I always START with my Toshiba Bread Machine on the whole wheat setting, then INTERRUPT the cycle just before baking begins; that way I have a built-in bread mixer, kneader and proof oven, but I get to shape and control the baking to perfection, and have bread…

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.

Homemade Grilled Flatbread

Homemade Grilled Flatbread by John Spottiswood

I couldn't find any authentic pita bread or other flat bread at my local grocery store, so I decided to try grilling my own. It turned out to be really fun and not too difficult. And the taste was amazing. The hardest part was rolling out the dough (I doubled the recipe). Fortunately, I was able to do that while watching a playoff…

Buttermilk and Butter Biscuits - with Attitude!

Buttermilk and Butter Biscuits - with Attitude! by Salad Foodie

Playing with a biscuit recipe one day I pondered…..what if I subbed butter for the shortening and added some kick-up seasonings? The result got great reviews from guests…. and hours later and at room temp, the “attitude” was delightfully more pronounced.....mm-m! Buttermilk makes them tender and light, while the butter…..oh the…

Gold Medal Best Ever Banana Bread

Gold Medal Best Ever Banana Bread by Nancy Miyasaki

I make a lot of banana bread because my kids and husband both love it. I've tried a lot of different recipes, but have found none better that this slight adaptation of the one on the back of the General Mills Gold Medal flour bag. I think they must have tested a lot of different versions before settling on this one, because it is…

Beer Bread (by Bread Machine or Conventional Bread Method)

Beer Bread (by Bread Machine or Conventional Bread Method) by Salad Foodie

This recipe for Beer Bread has a fine grain, firm crust, light volume, nice moist quality plus a slight taste similar to sourdough. I use the bread machine as a convenience - to make the dough and proof it. Then I interrupt the cycle just prior to the baking function so I can shape to a regular loaf pan, give it an extra and final…

French Bread by Traditional Yeast Method (no bread machine)

French Bread by Traditional Yeast Method (no bread machine) by Salad Foodie

Experimenting with several ways to get a good loaf of French bread without using my bread machine, I am ready to share this version over all I tried. It has a chewy crust and a beautiful fine grain. While my bread machine version (see "Useful Links" below) takes only about 5 minutes of active chef time, this recipe requires perhaps 35…
