French Bread by Traditional Yeast Method (no bread machine)

French Bread by Traditional Yeast Method (no bread machine) by Salad Foodie

Experimenting with several ways to get a good loaf of French bread without using my bread machine, I am ready to share this version over all I tried. It has a chewy crust and a beautiful fine grain. While my bread machine version (see "Useful Links" below) takes only about 5 minutes of active chef time, this recipe requires perhaps 35…

Honey Rosemary Chicken

Honey Rosemary Chicken by Salad Foodie

I really liked the marinade/glaze and its rosemary and balsamic flavors. If preferred, substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts and/or thighs or other chicken parts (baking time for smaller or thicker pieces will need to be adjusted.) This recipe will lend itself to your busy schedule: (1) Marinate the chicken in fridge while you…

Favorite Pumpkin Bread

Favorite Pumpkin Bread by Salad Foodie

This is even good the day of baking, but improves and mellows with age. Freezes well, but it's hard to keep out of the fresh baked to have any left for the freezer!

French Bread by Bread Machine

French Bread by Bread Machine by Salad Foodie

This recipe requires the French Bread setting on my bread machine, best suited for bread doughs low in fat and sugar; this results in a crisp crust and coarse, chewy exterior. (It is similar to the Whole Wheat setting though not identical.....but just might work.) However if neither are available on your machine you could use the…

Beer Bread (by Bread Machine or Conventional Bread Method)

Beer Bread (by Bread Machine or Conventional Bread Method) by Salad Foodie

This recipe for Beer Bread has a fine grain, firm crust, light volume, nice moist quality plus a slight taste similar to sourdough. I use the bread machine as a convenience - to make the dough and proof it. Then I interrupt the cycle just prior to the baking function so I can shape to a regular loaf pan, give it an extra and final…

Oatmeal Blondies

Oatmeal Blondies by Farrell May Podgorsek

I couldn't decide what to make one day. Did I want Blondies or Oatmeal Cookies. Why not both? The bars came out exactly as I wanted them to. Moist on the inside like a good Blondie should be, with a nice chewy texture from the rolled oats. I made these with chocolate chips and cinnamon, a great combination. Other nice additions would…

Bourbon Pecan Cake

Bourbon Pecan Cake by Farrell May Podgorsek

This versatile cake has a mild bourbon flavor. It is a popular adult birthday cake in my family. Chocolate lovers can add chocolate chips to the topping. Frosting lovers can make a layer cake to fill and frost. Cream cheese or buttercream made with bourbon would be nice. Tip: Make sure that the Bourbon you use is not harsh. For a…

Plum Sherry Tart

Plum Sherry Tart by Farrell May Podgorsek

The sherry and lemon zest give this plum tart a unique flavor. Be sure to use ripe, flavorful plums. You can use frozen plums but thaw them or heat gently in a skillet before placing them on the crust. I prefer plum tarts that are not too sweet. Add extra sugar to the filling if you prefer a sweeter filling

Chocolate Chip Meringue Bars

Chocolate Chip Meringue Bars by Farrell May Podgorsek

A different twist on a chocolate chip bar. The egg yolks are used in the dough, and the whites are beaten with brown sugar to make a meringue topping for the bars. Made by his mother, these bars were a childhood favorite of my husband. It was a race to the mailbox when a shoebox full of these bars would be sent to him at…
