Jen’s Perfect Asian Spinach Salad

On September 9, 2015 By admin

I thought I’d share one of my most favorite salads with you. I’m making it this week for a luncheon. This salad is a WINNER. It is super yummy, it feeds a lot of people, and it is healthful. Heck, my kids even eat it (including the Spinach part). Anyway, tuck this away for when [...]

On December 11, 2012 By admin

Last Sunday My sister made an amazing salad. Long story short, it included pears, blue cheese, candied pecans, and a slew of other treats. The salad reminded me of my own Christmas salad creation. Enjoy this Snow family classic.

Salad: Warm Tomato Salad

On July 19, 2012 By admin

One of the great things about loving to cook is the loss of fear in a restaurant. That sentence was wordy, I know, but let me explain myself. I read a lot about food. I crawl into bed with cookbooks (current read is “Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone” by Deborah Madison). I ask everyone who will [...]

Lunch: Curry Chicken Salad

On January 10, 2012 By admin

Who doesn’t have a Curry Chicken Salad recipe? Wait, did I just offend you by asking who doesn’t have one and you don’t have one? Lame. To make up for my lack of tact, I’ll give you one right now. This is from the June 2000 issue of Sunset Magazine. If you don’t subscribe to [...]

Salad: Snow-Capped Cranberry Jello

On November 11, 2011 By admin

Everyone has their dish. You know what I mean. When your fancy pants gourmet friend Sally confounds you by bringing¬†melted velveeta cheese mixed with ham to your appetizer party, you look at her with pity. What you don’t know is that her Grammy used to make it on Christmas Eve. As a small child she’d [...]

Ooooohhh, it’s a comin’. Can you feel it? Twinkle lights are out, Christmas music in Aeropostale, bulk nuts and melting chocolate on sale at Costco. The Holidays are rumbling down the street and there’s nothing we can do to stop them. This week I’m going to post three holiday must have recipes.

In November and [...]

Oh babycakes. Hold on to your chairs, or your mouse. I am about to share one of my most treasured, most revered recipes. I am not kidding. This is a recipe that I keep in my arsenal; that I never divulge. But in the spirit of the Occupy Wall Street kiddos, I’m going to share [...]

I won’t say names but my friend Jen has a funny story. She served this really amazing dish one time (I can’t even link to the dish or tell you what kind of dish because it would give the story away) and brought it to a girls’ day out gathering. Her friends loved the dish. [...]

Salad: Corn and Black Bean Salad

On September 14, 2011 By admin

When we lived in Berkeley, we had a Sunday night tradition. When the weather was just right (90% of the year), we (all of our fellow graduate school neighbors) gathered outside of our apartments and had a beautiful supper during sunset. The salad below was brought by my dearest friend. She just threw it together. [...]
