It's true—orange and onion really does sound like an unusual combination. But when my husband tasted Orange and Red Onion Salad for the first time, he told me, "This one's worth at least three kisses!"
I serve this salad with chicken...it likely would go well with fish, too.
Up until a short time ago, we lived in the San Joaquin Valley, where almonds, peaches and other crops thrive. Now—along with our 17-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter—we're settling into our new home in the foothills and getting used to seeing row crops and dairy cows instead.
This coffee cake is a sure hit. I used to prepare it for special occasions only. But now I try to bake it whenever I know overnight company is coming. It's always appreciated at breakfast the following morning.
There are several variations to this Asian-style salad. But this is the one most folks prefer. Toasted almonds, chow mein noodles and sesame seeds contribute to this salad's "crunch".—Sue McLaughlin, Onawa, Iowa
This is a recipe I put together just a few weeks ago, and my family really likes it. This cake is so moist and refreshing, and it's rather easy to make. It's the perfect dessert on an Indian summer day.
Don't be "intimidated" by the recipe directions for this coffee cake—it really isn't difficult to make.
Try it sometime as a nice brunch item. Don't limit it to that, though...it's also a delicious dessert.
This recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat blueberries. That delicious fruit is just one of the important crops grown here in the fertile Willamette Valley. They're grown for commercial use, but we usually pick about 60 pounds each summer for pies and other dishes.
I love to cook for big crowds, and I do a lot of outdoor entertaining during the summer. In winter, when it's too cold for outdoor eating, I still invite people over for meals indoors.
I save elegant dishes such as this for those more intimate indoor dinners. This delicious, unusual casserole is a light vegetable side dish that is especially pretty on a holiday table.
Though some parts of Alaska are suitable for farming, we're on the Gulf, where commercial fishing is the main industry. Crab is plentiful here, and so is salmon, halibut, shrimp and sea herring.
You don't need fresh crab for this delicious, easy-to-make supper pie, though-with canned crabmeat, it becomes a great "off-the-shelf" meal. Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!
Oranges add color and great taste to winter meals!
Orange Appeal looks very bright and appealing served in a glass bowl, and it's a light and easy dessert to finish off a hearty holiday meal. As far as I'm concerned, the citrusy aroma of oranges is a must at Christmas time!
