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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Ham & Cabbage Hash

Ham & Cabbage Hash by Salad Foodie

This is a fast dinner-in-a-skillet recipe, and a good way to use up leftover ham or roast beef. Lots of vegetables make the meat go further and keep calories, fat, sodium and carbs to a reasonable level. A healthy and homey stand-by recipe for breakfast and/or casual dinners.

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…

Canned Apple Pie Filling/ Apple Crisp by J. Gino Genovesi

Apples are a very versatile fruit. Apples are used in many pastries, pies and salads. I think apples are used more in pies than in other way. . It save lots of time to have a "done" product for use. This canned recipe is both economical and good. Try this recipe and let me know if you like it.

Carmelized Apple Tart with Sherry Crust

Carmelized Apple Tart with Sherry Crust by Farrell May Podgorsek

This crust complements many fillings. The Carmelized Apple in Cider Sauce and tart crust are prepared and cooked separately, then combined and baked for a few minutes. The crust stays flaky and the apples soft and carmelized. It was a perfect ending for Thanksgiving dinner. Be sure to always use a good quality drinking sherry.…

Not too sweet and not too sour, these old-fashioned pickles are crisp and crunchy. " Better than Grandma's" is the comment I most often hear. They are great for snacking on and perfect on a hamburger or hot dog. Refrigerator pickles are quick to make and will last in the refrigerator for at least 3 weeks. I use a mandolin style slicer…

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…

Beef with Mushrooms & Coconut Milk

Beef with Mushrooms & Coconut Milk by Farrell May Podgorsek

My husband wanted Beef Stroganoff and I don't eat dairy products. What to do? The end result is a wonderful beef with seared mushrooms in a coconut milk sauce. I achieved the creamy taste and texture I was looking for with a very mild coconut flavor. There is no tang of sour cream, but this dish does not need it. I served this with…
