Copycat Sunflower Crunch Kale Cabbage Salad

The reason I call this a “copycat” salad is that it mimics my favorite bagged salad which I purchase in the produce section of the market.

However, if I’m totally honest here (and why wouldn’t I be?), my Kudos Kitchen version is even better than that bagged version because I’ve added dried cranberries to the mix, and I’ve also added apple cider (you can use apple juice if needed) to thin the dressing, and for a little touch of extra sweetness.

Hauntingly Delicious Boo Berry Pie with Video Presentation #HalloweenTreatsWeek

Boo Berry Pie is a delicious mixed berry pie with orange zest and orange juice to kick up the flavor. To make things simple I’ve used a store bought deep dish pie crust and also a flat-rolled refrigerated crust for the easy cut out shapes.

If it looks scary or intimidating to make, I hope you’ll stick with me because I’ll walk you through the entire process of just how simple it is to recreate.

This dough basically takes only one bowl, one spoon, and a little bit of rising time. You really can’t get any easier or less fiddly than that!

Amazing Apple Recipe Roundup for Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings

One of the best times of the year, in my opinion, is autumn when it’s apple picking time. The abundance of apple flavors, colors, textures, and recipe possibilities (from sweet to savory) is something which excites me and makes me anxious to get in the kitchen with this incredibly versatile fruit, and hopefully, you feel the same way!

Low Sugar Cherry Yeast Bread with White Chocolate Ganache Drizzle

I decided I’d like to make this bread a little less sweet than what the local bakery sells in order to really let the flavor of summer cherries shine. The result is this beautiful (and healthier) cherry yeast bread that is perfect on its own or slathered with butter. Is it so wrong? LOL

Healthy Sautéed Creamed Spinach & Strawberry Side Dish with Pistachios

This dish of Sautéed Creamed Spinach & Strawberries came about one night when I was contemplating a side dish to serve with some fish I was cooking.

Since I had strawberries in the fridge that I needed to use before they spoiled, I tossed some into the sauteed creamed spinach I was preparing. The completed dish tasted amazing, and it was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds!

Sweet & Savory Creamy Chicken Salad with Dried Apricots & Macadamia Nuts

I find that a mix of dark and white meat chicken makes the best-tasting chicken salad. Store-bought rotisserie chicken is what I prefer when making a homemade chicken salad recipe.
When using onions in a non-cooked salad, I enjoy a red onion and think it is the sweetest. You can adjust the amount of red onion in the recipe depending on your taste. Chopped shallots may be used in place of the red onion for a slightly milder onion flavor.
