Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

A nice choice for a summer cookout or picnic, this pasta salad can be made up to a day ahead for convenience. My pasta choice for this is ditalini, a small pasta often used in soups (this can be hard to locate but Barilla sells a one pound box.) Or substitute your own small pasta FAV such as elbows or shells.

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…

Lotta Cheese Cheese Burger

Lotta Cheese Cheese Burger by Patti Fisher

We got a complaint from some friends that when they go out for burgers the meat is paper thin and the cheese, if you can find any, is tasteless. We had no choice but to say “See you tomorrow, come hungry!” Everyone was happily stuffed and knew they were eating a cheese burger. They may be back again tomorrow. Not only was there 2…

Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins (with bread machine dough option)

Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins (with bread machine dough option) by Salad Foodie

Whole wheat, bran and honey - a perfect threesome! Regular hamburger buns and even bread slices at times have too much bread volume for me, so I often turn to commercial sandwich thins. When I tried this recipe from breadworld.com it enabled me to have…

Oat Pecan Praline Cookies by Salad Foodie

Chewy, slightly soft texture with a hint of caramel pecan, these attractive cookies make a nice snack for company with coffee, tea or milk. Sometimes we bakers just have to break out of the oatmeal-raisin cookie rut, and these certainly do!

Make-over Spaghetti & Shrimp Salad

Make-over Spaghetti & Shrimp Salad by Salad Foodie

Originally mayo was the dressing for this salad recipe from a friend long ago, but I decided to give it a make-over. Adding a few new veggies and seasonings, and subbing an oil-based dressing, made it lighter and brighter. The recipe makes enough for a crowd or potluck, so cut down by one third or two thirds if needed.

Peanutty Oatmeal Cookies

Peanutty Oatmeal Cookies by Salad Foodie

A different take on peanut butter cookies. The oatmeal adds chewiness, and the chopped peanuts add extra crunch. For an over-the-top serving, spread a cookie with a smear of peanut butter and dab of jelly.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bar Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bar Cookies by Salad Foodie

Quick to make, these bar cookies are a sister version of drop cookies (the dough can actually be made into those if you prefer.) Oatmeal and nuts provide a light crunchiness to the moist and munchy texture. In brief - a delightful cookie your company will love!
