CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style

CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style by Amos Miller

My buddy, Ed, of Puerto Rican descent, spent his time in the Air Force in Central and South America. Ed's favorite dish: ceviche! He tells endless tales of trying ceviche, which is seafoods 'cooked' in nothing but citrus juice. Ed always said that the ceviche he would eat by the gallon, if he could get it, was that he had in Costa…

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…

Chili Sauce

Chili Sauce by Salad Foodie

Chili sauce is one answer to that bumper tomato harvest. The perky piquant sauce can compliment many classic recipes like meatballs, meatloaf, cutlets, chops, tenders, eggs, potatoes, etc. This recipe is from Ball Blue Book of Canning (2010) and is what I’d deem a standard chili sauce for a wide variety of family uses. It is not…

Chile Rellenos Soufflé by Salad Foodie

If you're craving a chile relleno fix, give this light south-of-the-border layered soufflé a try. I looked at several recipes then came up with my own combination and it fits my need for a guilt-free alternative.

Beef Fajita Best Marinade

Beef Fajita Best Marinade by Amos Miller

This is fast, simple and super delicious! You should have a very hot (very) cast iron griddle or pan to do this right. I preheat the griddle and simultaneously heat a cast iron serving dish so it goes to table with that distinctive 'sizzle'. Be sure to cut the meat, after it has rested, across the grain and as thin as you can. This…

San Antone Black Bean Salad by Amos Miller

With friends and family living in the great state of Texas, my frequent visits have always meant new flavor profiles to experience, new ways to express myself in the kitchen and when I am invited out and asked to 'bring something to pass'.

Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so! (This was before the era of food safety regulation and inspection - I just made it in our home kitchen!) Dad had taught me how to make his chili, and everyone agreed it was in a class of its…

Skinny Mexican Style Chicken and Cornbread Casserole by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

My husband and I love this main course casserole so much, we ended up eating it 3 days in a row! The skinny for 1 serving, 323 calories, 8 grams of fat and 8 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. It’s a real cinch to make, freezes great and only needs a side salad to serve with it! Easy, right and did I mention that it’s absolutely DELICIOUS??
