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…

This is a great snack and very easy to make. I keep to 3 ingredients. It is simple and fast to make. Tip: On a warm day, I recommend keeping it chilled in a small portable cooler if hiking, taking a walk, biking, on the road, etc. Even if it is taken to work for the office, etc, as it can get warm or humid at work during the…

Basil Pesto Spread

Basil Pesto Spread by Salad Foodie

Summer’s remaining basil harvest can become the makings of delicious pesto to serve on crackers or crusty bread. And it does freeze well too for uses into the fall season and beyond. Easy to make and very nutritious compared to many typical spreads.

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

A nice choice for a summer cookout or picnic, this pasta salad can be made up to a day ahead for convenience. My pasta choice for this is ditalini, a small pasta often used in soups (this can be hard to locate but Barilla sells a one pound box.) Or substitute your own small pasta FAV such as elbows or shells.
