Fresh Spinach Quiche

Fresh Spinach Quiche by Salad Foodie

Perfect for brunch or company, and one way to use up leftover fresh spinach. Use half Swiss cheese and half mozzarella if preferred. Do not bake pie shell well ahead of time as it needs to be hot or at least very warm when filling is poured in it.

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…

Cajun Crowder Beans

Cajun Crowder Beans by Amos Miller

Also known as Crowder peas, these delicious little fellas can often be found in frozen form at the store. These are fresh picked right here in Michigan and, like fava beans and so many other seasonal treats, we rush them to the table. Crowders are really a 'Southern' treat and I first enjoyed them when visiting relatives in West…

Garbage Salad (not really)

Garbage Salad (not really) by Amos Miller

This salad will make the meal, or be the meal. Broccoli, oranges, almonds, raisins, mushrooms, onion & bacon - and a fabulous classic sweet & tangy creamy dressing! Vegetarians can substitute bac-o-bits, or not add a bacon substitute. Throwing together bits and pieces of a variety of items has long been the basis of some great…

Southwestern Shell Pasta Salad

Southwestern Shell Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

Chop, chop, chop and get your frustrations out making this pasta salad with south-of-the-border appeal. Choose your heat level by amount of peppers, hot sauce and chilies you add. This yields a generous bowl and serves 12-14. Make this ahead of time and chill ~ if you can wait and can keep everyone out too!

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Italian-American in origin, this soup was really misnamed. “Wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language for 'minestra maritata', a reference to the fact that greens and meat go well together. (Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…

Moravian Sugar Cake

Moravian Sugar Cake by Glenn

Lititz, PA was founded in 1756 as a closed Moravian community and remained that way for 100 years. The town is built around the Moravian Church Square and while it now hosts many religions the Moravian Star and Moravian food dominate. While not Moravian, our family enjoyed Moravian Sugar Cake as a special treat. We always got ours…

Barbecued Wings Charlotte Style

Barbecued Wings Charlotte Style by Robyn Savoie

North Carolina prides itself on its barbecue. You can find any number of variations for this classic regional sauce throughout North Carolina's barbecue emporiums. I found this fantastic grilled chicken wing recipe in Mario Batali's "Mario Tailgates NASCAR Style" cookbook published in 2006. The reason it's fantastic, you can…

Red and green color apples make a Christmas statement for this fresh, healthy and simple fruit salad. Select apples for the deepest color you can get, but not too tart, as there is no added sugar or sweetener in this recipe. Suggestions: Apples with predominant red and/or green skins might include: Red Delicious, Red Jonathan,…

My Homemade Apple Butter with Apple Schnapps

My Homemade Apple Butter with Apple Schnapps by Robyn Savoie

Two autumn standards, pumpkin and apple. I joined Schnapps Liquor with apple in this lovely spread. Apple Schnapps really adds a surprising element to this. This spread is wonderful on toast, pancakes, waffles and in pumpkin pie! I might experiment one of these days and see how it would work in traditional apple pie

Crock Pot Chicken Stew

Crock Pot Chicken Stew by Salad Foodie

The perfect Sunday evening supper, this basic stew is pure comfort fare! What I enjoy particularly are the ease of preparation, large chunks of chicken, and the light yummy gravy. Based on a recipe from Taste of Home Magazine, this recipe uses boneless skinless chicken thighs. I have used a meaty turkey thigh in place of chicken:…

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce

Pork w/ Apple, Onion & Hard Cider Sauce by Amos Miller

Leaves turning, cooler breezes blowing - time for a comforting pork roast with onions, apples and hard cider. This is a deceptively simple dish that Claire Robinson turned me on to, and is loaded with country flavors. The hard cider reduces down to a savory sauce after Granny Smith apples and sliced onions are caramelized. A very…
