From 4-H baking projects as a 10-year-old, to the 2000 Pillsbury Bake-Off in San Francisco, my culinary contest career has given birth to hundreds of recipes.
Crunchy and creamy textures are melded with sweet and spicy flavors for a combination that will tantilize -- and satisfy -- your palate.
I grew up with a Mama that prepared good, simple meals. She used to serve a salad that contained apples, lettuce, American cheese, and mayonnaise. I absolutely loved it!
Just a hint of goat cheese with your burger. The salad is almost a salsa. All those good flavors in one. Nothing too powerful to kill the other.
I have found that kids really love peanut butter, doesn't matter what it's on. This is a balanced flavor that surprised even me.
I made a salad last winter when visiting Palm Springs with local dates, apples, bacon and blue cheese that was really tasty.
