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…

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

I haven’t found a quicker apple crisp recipe that tastes as good (or better) than oven-baked. Simple prep and fast cooking make this a perfect dessert when you’re short on time. Plus you can make it year round as the microwave won't heat up the kitchen.

Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon

Cornbread, Jalapeno Maple Bacon by Amos Miller

When the daytime temperature hits around 50 degrees and the evening plunges to 30 or lower, it is time to begin the annual maple syrup processing in our neck of the woods. We use it for many things and one of them is this cornbread. I first had a jalapeno cornbread in Texas, made by my sister's cowboy husband's aunt Netha, and…

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…

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style by Amos Miller

I have never been a really big fan of cauliflower, but I love potatoes and spices. This dish, known as 'Alu Ghobi', has long been a favorite vegetable side dish in my kitchen. It is simple, easy to make and very healthy for you. One seldom finds a cauliflower dish on the average restaurant menu. But you need not be a…

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit by Amos Miller

This is one of my absolute favorite berry desserts and comes from Tony Bourdain and Les Halles Restaurant in NYC. I have had the audacity to make just one minor modification to the recipe, but I have no regrets, and neither will you. We grow blueberries all season long at Walnut Ridge Farm, so there are always opportunities to try…

Grilled Salmon with Tomatoes and Cilantro Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Tomatoes and Cilantro Sauce by Salad Foodie

A dear friend prepared this for us and it's become our prized way of enjoying salmon fillets. She calls it Salmon Supreme, but I call it Salmon Divine! Tomatoes, onion, garlic and cilantro cook down to make the savory sauce for grilled salmon. Serve atop your choice of rice or pasta and add a side of bright vegetables or salad.

Lamb Chops with Mushroom & Cider-Mint Glaze

Lamb Chops with Mushroom & Cider-Mint Glaze by Salad Foodie

Lamb chops are treat enough on our table, but we especially enjoyed them with this mint-infused mushroom sauce. When I spotted O-bone lamb chops on sale and considered my bounty of fresh garden mint, I knew the two were destined to marry! This recipe was inspired by the Longhorn Steak House, though I reverted to packaged gravy mix…

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick!

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

Scalloped potatoes cooked in 12 minutes? Compare that to the hour-and-a-half baking time most scalloped potato recipes require, and this recipe may become a year round “fav” for you since the microwave keeps your kitchen cool. Another appeal is the unusual and subtle flavor Swiss cheese gives to this dish. The recipe is based on one…

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs by Amos Miller

Eggplant has nothing to do with eggs - unless you dip and bread them. This sauce is a knockout! We grow 'Casper', an heirloom small, long white eggplant. It's mild in flavor and perfectly suited to thick, rich vegetable sauces. When cut into dime-to-quarter-sized disks, I have found Casper to be a perfect addition to other late…

Green Beans, New Potatoes and Bacon

Green Beans, New Potatoes and Bacon by Salad Foodie

A delicious side to serve with meat, or as a main luncheon dish with salad. Honestly I could almost eat a whole plateful of this! It is so simple but so tasty. First run-through I followed the recipe exactly from Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook by Harvest House Publishers 2010. Having made it several times since I made only minor…
