Easy Sour Cream Biscuits

Easy Sour Cream Biscuits by Salad Foodie

Quick to the table because there's no cutting of shortening into flour mixture. Just stir in sour cream, knead lightly, pat out, cut and bake. Couldn't be simpler to get homemade biscuits on the table. I like to use up the tail end of the sour cream this way.

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

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…

Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread by Marlin Rinehart

This is the most famous cookie of Scotland. It’s a must to use pure butter. Traditionally, shortbread contains no other flavor. I’ve been making this recipe since 1970 when I got the recipe in Edinburgh, Scotland. The addition of a small amount of rice flour gives a firmness and crunchiness to the cookie. Most American recipes for…

Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake

Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake by Salad Foodie

Let me say right up front - fruitcake gets a bad rap. My theory is that many object to the darker types, with lots of spice and molasses. Or the sheer size or amount of this rich cake is enough to last folks til next Christmas. You will be pleasantly surprised though with Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake. In the ’50s, Lucile Harvey…
