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…

Danish Aebleskivers

Æbleskiver (Danish pancake balls) are baked either plain or with an inside filling in a special pan with indentations or cups.

A good base comfort soup for the winter season. Cauliflower, potatoes, carrots, onions and garlic predominate, but you can rifle through the veggie bin and sub out others like spinach, zucchini, parsnips, etc. and you can increase or decrease the ratios of vegetables to your preference.

The best zucchini muffin recipe I've ever had - bar none. This makes 24 muffins, so cut down if that's too many, or simply take the extras on a muffin-run to friends and family!

Coconut Pecan Cookies

Coconut Pecan Cookies by Salad Foodie

A search on the Internet for a coconut pecan cookie recipe brought a few candidates forward and fortunately the first I tested was a slam-dunk. This is chewy, somewhat crunchy and divinely coconutty. I stayed very close to the original and glad it turned out so well. Kudos to Mike at his betterbaking.com blog for this toothsome…

Ciabatta Bread I

Ciabatta Bread I by Salad Foodie

The first of two ciabatta bread recipes I am trying out - this first one is from Fleischmann's Yeast. It is rated "Advanced" in difficulty and I agree! It was challenging and involved - plan to be around much of the time of day you make it, as there are four 45 minute risings to supervise. The dough is tricky and sticky. I did like…

Leftover Oatmeal Raisin Nut Muffins

Leftover Oatmeal Raisin Nut Muffins by Salad Foodie

Leftover cooked oatmeal joins basic quickbread ingredients to make a delicious batch of muffins. Rather than wasting excess cooked oatmeal, freeze in measured batches for using up in baked goods such as this recipe. It's surprising what a win/win this can turn out to be.

Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Crisscross Cookies

Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Crisscross Cookies by Salad Foodie

Peanut butter cookie recipes abound, but none of them came close to rekindling memories of the favorite from my youth - until I came across this one in an Old Farmer's Almanac. The first batch I made convinced me the recipe was the one from my early baking years. Ah - answered prayers!
