    Cauliflower Broccoli Salad

    I’m not much on cauliflower, but for some reason I love it in this salad. Maybe because I cut the florets into tiny pieces, along with the other veggies. Feel free to add other veggies too like carrots, artichoke hearts, cucumber, etc. I love the combination of the bacon and the cheese with the creamy ranch dressing. Hope you love it as much as we do.  Print Cauliflower Broccoli Salad Servings 8 Ingredients 1 medium head cauliflower cut into small florets 1 small head broccoli cut into small florets 1 small can sliced black olives drained 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese I've used pepperjack also…

    Watergate Salad

    Is it named after a Chicago publisher for Kraft? Is it named after the Watergate Hotel or the scandal? Is it named something else, but we just call it Watergate Salad?

Print Watergate Salad Ingredients 1 4 ounce package instant pistachio pudding mix 1 20 ounce can crushed pineapple with juice, undrained 1 cup miniature marshmallow 1 ⁄2 cup chopped nuts 1 3 ⁄4 cups non-dairy whipped topping thawed Instructions Stir pudding mix, pineapple with juice, marshmallows and nuts in a large bowl until well blended.…

    TOH Salads

    Taste of Home (TOH) is a good site to quickly find recipes. As a contest cook, I’ve won a couple of TOH contests, and my recipes are on their site and in their cookbooks also. Several of my cooking friends have done the same, so I trust Taste of Home to bring us the newest and tried-and-true recipes that we need to cook for ourselves and our families. Because of the contests that they run, recipes are from home cooks like you and me-you gotta love that! That means simple ingredients that you usually have on hand and less steps. Here are some of my favorite salads from TOH-photos courtesy…

    Garden Couscous

    Couscous is a North African dish made from tiny steamed balls of semolina flour, so it’s actually pasta-teeny, tiny little pieces of pasta! It cooks in the blink of any eye, so it’s really perfect for quick and easy dishes. This one is my favorite. Not one of my recipes, but taken from Just A Pinch Recipe Site-one of my favorite sites for great recipes that are tried & true. Click HERE for the recipe from Karie Houghton on JAP, and I also have it below. Please follow and like us:

    Cowgirl Stew

    I’ve been making this for so many years I could actually make it blindfolded! I used Ranch Style Beans in it, but I’ve found some parts of the U.S. don’t have that particular brand like we do in the South, so just use Chili Beans, and don’t drain them. You can also use fresh, frozen or canned veggies of your choice. It’s an excellent way to clean out the fridge if you have some ground beef. Print Cowgirl Stew Ingredients 2 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil 2 pounds ground beef 3 cups water 1 16 oz. package frozen corn 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes 1 15 oz. can ranch-style…

    German Cabbage Soup for the Soul

    By Paula Todora When we lived in Maple Valley, WA we visited a wonderful and authentic German Restaurant often. The Cabbage soup was our favorite. I asked the cook several times what her secret was (a German lady, of course). She would never devulge her secret, of course. I would go home and attempt to get the flavors just right, with no success. Then one day, she told me the secret was in the pork broth. That’s when I changed my recipe up, and here it is-tastes similar to hers without actually having her family recipe. We love it!

    Crunchy Walnut Chicken Salad

    This is a concoction of food I had handy, and we needed something to eat for lunch. A pretty simple concept-nothing fancy here. Cooked chicken with some crunchy things thrown in, plus a side of chopped walnuts since the walnut is the only nut – and one of the few plant-based foods – that contains omega-3. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid (meaning we need to obtain it from our diets). Among the many benefits, omega-3 plays an important role in cognitive function and bringing down inflammation in the body. It’s pretty fitting since the walnut is shaped like a little brain.  Served in a Joseph’s Pita Bread half with slices…

    Potato Soup

    What a frugal and wonderful recipe-costs about $5 to make (excluding toppings), and I like mine without any toppings. Sometimes I’ll add fried sliced beef sausage to the top for dinner, served with crusty bread. Adjust the seasonings because some people like more pepper than I do. Print Potato Soup Ingredients 3 slice regular bacon cut into 2-inch pieces 1 small onion chopped 4 stalk s celery, chopped, leaving some leaves on 2 medium carrots peeled and chopped 6 medium russet potatoes peeled and cubed 1 tsp salt 3/4 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp onion powder 1 can s 13-15 ounces chicken broth 1 c water 3/4 c whole milk…
