Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies by Salad Foodie

These peanut butter cookies have crunchy chopped peanuts and either chopped semisweet chocolate chunks or jumbo chocolate chips. They are somewhat chewy and moist if the baking is followed carefully, though you can bake an extra minute or two for a crisper version if you prefer (see Photo 2.)

Quick Meatloaf & Potatoes

Quick Meatloaf & Potatoes by Salad Foodie

Start to finish this can be on the table in 30 minutes, which represents 15 minutes of prep and 15 minutes cook time in the microwave. This meal-in-one recipe comes from the heyday of microwave cooking in the 80's and 90's, and is always a family pleaser. Of course it can be baked in a 350 degree F. conventional oven instead, for an…

Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Crisscross Cookies

Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Crisscross Cookies by Salad Foodie

Peanut butter cookie recipes abound, but none of them came close to rekindling memories of the favorite from my youth - until I came across this one in an Old Farmer's Almanac. The first batch I made convinced me the recipe was the one from my early baking years. Ah - answered prayers!

Bacon Mac (Macaroni & Cheese with Bacon)

Bacon Mac (Macaroni & Cheese with Bacon) by Salad Foodie

It's hard to improve on an American classic, but I think this recipe based on Cooking Light Magazine (9/09) does just that. I stayed fairly close to its version and am glad I did. We loved the smoky flavor bacon imparts to cheesy pasta, and the extra zing from hot sauce. You will need a broiler-safe baking dish or pan for this. I used…

Zucchini Meatballs in Cream Sauce - Microwave Quick!

Zucchini Meatballs in Cream Sauce - Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

Several good reasons to save this recipe: to use up zucchini; to keep the kitchen cool by microwaving the main dish; and because the meatballs are loaded with veggies, are moist and creamy. This is one of my two all-time FAVS from the peak microwave cookbook era of the 80's and 90's. If you prefer, use homemade cream sauce in place of…

Three Cheese Macaroni & Cheese

Three Cheese Macaroni & Cheese by Salad Foodie

An unusual recipe ingredient caught my attention when I saw this on the Internet and after trying it out the recipe went straight to my rotation FAVS. Three cheeses make it irresistible - Cheddar, Parmesan - and (the surprise to me) - cottage cheese. Then a crunchy topping clinches the deal. I tweaked it very little and believe…

Roasted Butternut Squash

Roasted Butternut Squash by B Innes

To roast butternut squash you can either roast cut in half, cut side down, in a pan with a little water for about 1-1½ hours and then scoop out of the skin or peel, seed, cube and roast for about 30 minutes on high heat. My version uses a light marinade to oil the cubed squash and add a little sweetness. I keep it simple, but feel…
