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.

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

This is a recipe for the dough of the fluffy white skins of the char siu bao and the shanghai cabbage buns. It's truly versatile -- you can use the same dough and fill it with sweetened mashed red beans or lotus seeds for a dessert treat. Or just steam it by itself to turn it into "man tou" essentially steamed white bread that is…

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…

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…

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…

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.

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!

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…

Fantastic Irish Soda Bread

Fantastic Irish Soda Bread by Nancy Miyasaki

I made two Irish Soda Breads for St. Patrick's Day this year, and this one was superior. And it is really, really easy! If you eat it hot out of the oven, it melts in your mouth like a warm cornbread. If you let it sit a few hours, it hardens into a thicker texture with the same great taste. You won't be disappointed!

Multi-Grain Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional)

Multi-Grain Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional) by Salad Foodie

An all-around favorite in our family. Serve with homemade soup, use for grilled sandwiches and as toast. The variety of grains provides a nutty texture. But if you don’t have all the grains on hand, just sub whole wheat for the same amounts. Can be made conventional yeast method, but I always START with my Toshiba Bread Machine on…

Buttermilk Banana Bread

Buttermilk Banana Bread by Nancy Miyasaki

I've made dozens of different types of banana bread, and this is one of my favorites. Our kids devoured it! My oldest told me "this is the best banana bread you've ever made, Mom." That's high praise from a 9th grader!

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…
