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,…

Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake

Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake by Salad Foodie

Let me say right up front - fruitcake gets a bad rap. My theory is that many object to the darker types, with lots of spice and molasses. Or the sheer size or amount of this rich cake is enough to last folks til next Christmas. You will be pleasantly surprised though with Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake. In the ’50s, Lucile Harvey…

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…

Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread by Marlin Rinehart

This is the most famous cookie of Scotland. It’s a must to use pure butter. Traditionally, shortbread contains no other flavor. I’ve been making this recipe since 1970 when I got the recipe in Edinburgh, Scotland. The addition of a small amount of rice flour gives a firmness and crunchiness to the cookie. Most American recipes for…

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie by Amos Miller

I have made this recipe for years. There is none better - or so I've been told by some serious and knowing Creole cooks. And while some may say "Well, it sounds just like a pumpkin pie recipe", they are sorely mistaken. This, my friends, is a Creole Sweet Potato Pie. This is the way to eat your vegetables! Vegetables and…

Drop Sand Tarts

Drop Sand Tarts by Jann from PA

This is a holiday cookie! It is an easier version of an old-fashioned rolled out cookie. It tastes very similar, but is not as unique as when they were rolled out, cut in fancy shapes and decorated. The old cookies were first brushed with an egg wash (beaten egg and water) with a pastry brush then topped with sugar (usually red and…

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars!

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars! by Salad Foodie

This recipe has been circulating around the Internet as “Lemon Brownies”, but I think it deserves a more descriptive name. These treats are a delicacy and are more “dainty” than brownies. They have no chocolate, are not brown, and NOT as sweet nor…

Green Bean, Carrot and Mushroom Medley

Green Bean, Carrot and Mushroom Medley by Salad Foodie

A quick-to-fix green bean side dish or vegetarian main dish. I like to use my steamer for the beans and carrots, but they could also be boiled briefly and drained. This makes a beautiful presentation with interesting flavor combinations. The real trick is getting the seasoning right. Experiment with your favorite herb combinations,…
