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…

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…

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…

Avocado-Tomatillo Sauce (for Taquitos)

Avocado-Tomatillo Sauce (for Taquitos) by Andra Kiser

40+ years ago, when my father was in Viet Nam, we lived in his hometown for a year in southern California. There was a drive-in called the Jolly Kone that served taquitos with this runny, hot (heat, not spice) green sauce made with avocados. I've thought about that sauce ever since. I found a recipe a while back (can't remember…

Cumin Chicken Soup

Cumin Chicken Soup by Farrell May Podgorsek

I created this warming soup from the leftovers of the wonderful Cumin Roasted Chicken. The aromas of cumin, oregano and chicken promise a flavorful dinner. Use one or more jalapeno pepper, depending upon your preference and the heat of the peppers. I finished the soup with diced avocado and homemade green salsa and served it over a…

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.

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.…

Chipotle Chickpea Dip

Chipotle Chickpea Dip by K. Garner

This is based on the same-titled recipe on Fat Free Vegan.com. I used heaping tablespoons of chipotle peppers, white onion, and a mixture of fresh and bottled lime juice. This dip is FANtastic. The smokiness of the peppers fools your taste buds. The mouthfeel is there--that umami everyone's looking for--without cheese or meat. 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!

Chinese Seafood Noodles

Chinese Seafood Noodles by Weining Wang

My favorite food is Chinese seafood, like Seviche (even though that's technically Peruvian, but I like the Chinese Style Seviche) and Campechana. Those dishes usually contain a medley of different seafood ingredients like fish, shrimp, Mussels, octopus or crab. They are then doused in a tomato lime base with different vegetables; it…
