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…

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…

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…

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…

Southern Corn Bread

Southern Corn Bread by Salad Foodie

I was hesitant to try this because it was different than any corn bread I’ve ever made. The proportion of corn meal to flour for one, and then hardly any sugar. Now having made it I’ve decided southerners have it all right about corn bread, and I prefer this to the usual sweet variety. I like to use one third of the cornmeal as…

Favorite Oatmeal Muffins

Favorite Oatmeal Muffins by Salad Foodie

No, not just my favorite oatmeal muffin, these are actually my Number 1 Favorite Muffin ~ period! I love that they are comparatively low-fat and won’t make your fingers greasy as you eat them.

Bulgur Pilaf

Bulgur Pilaf by Salad Foodie

Faster and easier to cook than rice, bulgur is a grain to consider for making pilaf. High in fiber and low in fat makes this side dish a healthful choice. Easily converts to vegetarian by omitting the chicken broth. (Medium to large grind bulgur will be best for this recipe.)

Best Crispy Waffles

Best Crispy Waffles by Salad Foodie

This is my favorite recipe for a crisp waffle. If that’s the way you like them, don’t reduce the oil, cause that’s what makes them crispy! Lazy soul that I am, I mix the batter in a blender and use that as a pitcher to pour them conveniently. I freeze extra waffles for a quick into-the-toaster breakfast. Just add maple syrup, butter…

Favorite Buttermilk Waffles (with Whole Grain option)

Favorite Buttermilk Waffles (with Whole Grain option) by Salad Foodie

Buttermilk makes baked products divine, and this is the way I use it in waffles. White whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour can be subbed to boost nutrition. Lazy soul that I am, I mix the batter in a blender and use that as a pitcher to pour them conveniently. I freeze extra waffles for a quick into-the-toaster breakfast.…
