Some great copycat recipes

buttermilkbiscuits

It's been a while since I posted one of these! Here are three brilliant recipes I've found on other food blogs lately.

Buttermilk biscuits is a real favorite - I made it for Fourth of July with fried chicken, and they were absolutely delicious. I especially liked them with the Canadian maple butter Jeff and Brad brought us when they visited in June! This recipe is from Nook & Pantry.

roastedsalsa

Roasted tomato salsa, from 101 Cookbooks. This was also for the Fourth of July, actually. And very tasty indeed! I used regular dried chillies and chipotle sauce to flavor it, rather than chipotles in adobo or guajillo peppers.

peanutnoodlesalad

Peanut Noodle Salad from Cloudberry Quark. Oh wow. This was just a fabulous, fabulous dinner. I really liked it - definitely one to try again. And again. I served it with some sliced beef on top, and it was just delicious. I used dried chillies rather than fresh, and red onions rather than scallions. Feel free to substitute as you see fit!

The peanut noodle salad looks like today's dinner ;-) I will probably serve it with chicken. Thanks for posting these, it's so hard to keep track of all nice recipes.

Love the salsa recipe! Keep those fresh tomato receipes coming as the tomato crop in the US right now is exploding! I have 6 different types of tomatoes covering my counters right now and am looking for ways to use them!

I grew up eating fried chicken and biscuits. I love them both but don't make them often. They're so bad for the heart. Is the 4th of July special in Sweeden or were you celebrating with us Americans?

Amy - oh no, it's nothing here in Sweden. I just celebrate with the Americans :)

Great recipes all of them - and I really enjoy doing 'copycat' recipes, too!

I'm so glad you liked the biscuit recipe! It sounds absolutely delicious with maple butter!
