Easy Sour Cream Biscuits

Easy Sour Cream Biscuits by Salad Foodie

Quick to the table because there's no cutting of shortening into flour mixture. Just stir in sour cream, knead lightly, pat out, cut and bake. Couldn't be simpler to get homemade biscuits on the table. I like to use up the tail end of the sour cream this way.

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

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…

I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

Creole Pralines

Creole Pralines by Amos Miller

Better than a cookie (sorry bakers, but this is a Creole group) and with the true taste of New Orleans, Creole Pralines are one of the signature treats in the Big Easy! It is time to play 'soft ball', and we're not talking the sport - we're talking Creole candy. When the recipe calls for your concoction on the stove to reach the…

Panko Crusted Baked Tilapia by Salad Foodie

So I didn't find a recipe I liked for this and had to bungle my way through it alone. But it turned out pretty darned good! Nice crispy crunch, and baked without using a batter of egg or milk. If you have an alternative way please share!

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”)

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”) by Kevin Olomon

During the off-season, when salmon aren’t readily available up north, Alaskan bears eat mainly nuts and berries. So to track a bear in the woods, you simply look to the forest floor and watch for “bear sign”. Need I say more? Ha! These are SO easy…

Elegant Shrimp Scampi Pasta Lightened Up

Elegant Shrimp Scampi Pasta Lightened Up by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

For a romantic dinner, try this superb shrimp, sauteed in a buttery, garlic and lemon wine sauce. It doesn’t get easier to prepare yet it taste so indulgent. Instead of having to prep the raw shrimp, by deveining and such, I like to use cooked shrimp. It’s so much easier and cooks in minutes! The skinny for each generous serving is…
