Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Rating: 4.72 stars

A pumpkin loaf spiced with cinnamon, ground cloves, and nutmeg. I came up with this recipe after many failed attempts at pumpkin loaf. I adapted a favorite banana loaf recipe and this was the result. Yum! This recipe yields 3 loaves. Stock your freezer!

Nana's Apple Crumble

Rating: 5 stars
2
A family favorite, this apple crumble was originally my grandmother Hazel's recipe which my mom made on a regular basis. She would make two at a time to take to sick or shut-in friends, or to potlucks. There is never any left. Serve warm with French vanilla yogurt.

These quick and easy pan-fried chicken breasts are topped with a simple pan sauce made with capers, butter, white wine, and lemon juice.

Dutch Oven Macaroni and Cheese

Rating: 5 stars
5
This Dutch oven mac and cheese is a staple in my home. I sometimes add burger meat or bacon to it to liven it up but it's delicious enough on its own! Regularly served as the main course with just a veggie side, as it can be a bit heavy if you're a mac and cheese lover who can't resist seconds (like me).

Apple Butter Snickerdoodles

These snickerdoodle cookies have a hint of apple butter for a different take on the classic favorite.

Instant Pot® Pumpkin Quinoa Porridge

If you haven't tried quinoa for breakfast yet, you're missing out on a tasty and comforting way to start your day. Quinoa will give you a hefty serving of protein, and the warm and spicy pumpkin in this recipe will give you lots of added vitamins and fiber. This is prepared in the Instant Pot®, which makes it quick and easy too! I made mine without too much sweetener and lots of spice; adjust the amounts to your taste. Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator up to 6 days.

Bob's Little Known, Less Cared About Chili

Rating: 4.8 stars
88
Savory, smoky, easy-to-make chili. Sometimes I add a can of corn, too. Maybe have some sweet corn bread muffins with honey on the side. You could use black beans, pinto beans, pink beans, or small red beans in place of the kidney beans.

Corn Rings

I love corn on the cob, but this fun little twist might be my new favorite way to make it.

Cinnamon-Pumpkin Streusel Bundt® Cake

The streusel lines the Bundt® cake pan which in turn bakes into the cake, yielding a slightly crunchy texture, but tender, crumbed cake. The supreme Saigon cinnamon is more robust than brands sold in stores. I highly recommend it!

Chakchouka (Shakshouka)

Rating: 4.68 stars
350
Chakchouka (also called shakshouka) is a Tunisian and Israeli dish of tomatoes, onions, pepper, spices, and eggs. It's usually eaten for breakfast or lunch, but I think it's tasty anytime. And it's easy to make. It is similar to the Turkish dish 'Menemen' and to the Latin American breakfast dish 'Huevos Rancheros.'

Rating: 4.79 stars

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Rating: 4.71 stars
3965
My grandmother's recipe for roasted chicken. We are German and she used to do it this way all the time. I never have had a chicken this juicy before; this little trick works and makes the people eating it go silent. It's funny. We nibble on the celery after.

Alfredo Sauce

Rating: 4.56 stars

Rich and creamy! I have found that Parmesan cheese doesn't melt well, and often substitute Gruyere cheese.

Mamaw's Chicken and Rice Casserole

Rating: 4.53 stars
1040
I grew up on this recipe, my Grandmother got it from a lady from church at a pot luck a long time ago! She passed it down to my mom and it's always been a family favorite. Quick and easy for school nights, and the leftovers are just as good! You can use less butter on top of course, my Momma and Mamaw always put the full stick on top (gotta love Southern ladies and their butter!)

Simple Macaroni and Cheese

Rating: 4.42 stars
858
A very quick and easy fix to a tasty side-dish. Fancy, designer mac and cheese often costs forty or fifty dollars to prepare when you have so many exotic and expensive cheeses, but they aren't always the best tasting. This recipe is cheap and tasty.

These air-fried roasted one-bite potatoes are crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Quick and easy to make.

The Real Mojito

Rating: 4.74 stars
737
This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.

Polish Egg Salad

Rating: 5 stars

This creamy-style egg salad is quite common in Poland. It has a similar consistency than egg salad with mayo but it is made with cream cheese. Lovely in a sandwich with fresh cress.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Rating: 4.7 stars
3764
This is a great recipe when you don't want to wait for the dough to rise. You just mix it and allow it to rest for 5 minutes and then it's ready to go!! It yields a soft, chewy crust. For a real treat, I recommend you use bread flour and bake it on a pizza stone, but all-purpose flour works well too. Enjoy!

Microwave Baked Potato

Rating: 4.16 stars
385
If you want the yummy taste of a slowly baked potato but aren't patient enough, or don't have the know-how to bake it in an oven, this is for you. Give it 12 minutes and get a mouth-watering, taste bud-tingling treat.

Easy Tamale Casserole

Rating: 4.32 stars
81
My mom liked to make the Hamburger Helper® version of this recipe. When I moved to another state, I could not find it, so I came up with this. Memories of home. My hubby likes for me to spice this up sometimes, so I will use a 14-ounce can of tomatoes and green chiles in it or just use a Mexican-style cornbread mix sometimes.

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Rating: 4.64 stars

You can also fry up red tomatoes with this recipe but make sure they are not over ripe or they will be mushy. Serve these tomatoes outside with a glass of iced tea one summer night and enjoy the sunset with someone you love.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Rating: 4.64 stars

These muffins are extra large and yummy with the sugary-cinnamon crumb topping. I usually double the recipe and fill the muffin cups just to the top edge for a wonderful extra-generously-sized deli style muffin. Add extra blueberries too, if you want!

Rating: 4.62 stars

This is a no-nonsense recipe for corn on the cob. Perfect for when you run out of stove or grill space. I freeze the corn on the cob in plastic bags, and remove a single ear of frozen corn in the cold winter months to have the sweet taste of summer corn throughout the year!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Rating: 4.8 stars
3409
Authentic Italian-style risotto cooked the slow and painful way, but oh so worth it. Complements grilled meats and chicken dishes very well. Check the rice by biting into it. It should be slightly al dente (or resist slightly to the tooth but not be hard in the center).

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

Rating: 4.69 stars
453
No two spaghetti aglio e olio recipes are alike, but this one is pretty true to the classic method. The key is slowly toasting the garlic slices to a perfect golden-brown in the olive oil. If it's too light, you don't get the full flavor and if it's too dark it gets bitter. My advice? Do it perfectly.

Sloppy Joes II

Rating: 4.52 stars
1657
My husband loves Panera® broccoli cheddar soup but it went up in price and therefore we set out on a hunt to create the perfect broccoli cheddar soup. Here is what we came up with. There are tons of variations and options to make this soup your own. You can add extra veggies, different cheeses, garlic to your onions, a little nutmeg to the finished soup, green onions, sour cream, etc. The list goes on and on. Make it your own! Serve topped with cheese!
