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…

Homemade Refried Beans

Homemade Refried Beans by John Spottiswood

I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered. But this recipe is simple and it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. I figure my kids are the true test, since they aren't that…

Chile Rellenos Soufflé

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. To save time use canned whole green chiles, or char your fresh garden ones if desired. One batch makes 4 generous-size…

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…

Tea-Time Orange Cake Recipe

Tea-Time Orange Cake Recipe by Hina Gujral

With some Kinnow Oranges in hand, the first and the obvious recipe choice was a Tea-Time Orange Cake. The tanginess of oranges, the subtle sweet notes and the bitterness of orange zest make this Orange Cake a perfect tea time treat.

Buttermilk Cornbread with Green Chilies and Cheese

Buttermilk Cornbread with Green Chilies and Cheese by Salad Foodie

It’s hard to stop at just one serving of this, so if you have a hungry crowd coming, double the recipe! I love to bake cornbread in a cast iron skillet to get that crispy crust, but a 9" square baking pan will make good cornbread too.

Mango Chipotle Sauce/Glaze

Mango Chipotle Sauce/Glaze by Bob Vincent

This is a good sauce/glaze for almost anything. It is easy to make and stores refrigerated well for several days or if air tight much longer. I use it on grilled fish, chicken or pork. It can be used hot as a finishing sauce or cold as a glaze during the last few minutes of grilling. Adjust the chipotle peppers to your taste.
