Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza

Rating: 4.5 stars 41
Home cooks will find deep-dish pizza, with its unique buttery cornmeal crust, more forgiving than its New York counterpart. No need to worry about having the hottest oven or too many toppings - just make sure your sauce is very thick and flavorful! I garnished mine with parsley and more Parmesan cheese.

Mexican-Style Air Fryer Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Rating: 5 stars 6
Vegetables and spices are rolled up in chicken breasts and air fried for a quick and easy dinner perfect for a busy weeknight. Just over 10 minutes in the air fryer gives you juicy, tender chicken breasts filled with spicy veggies. Serve with fresh pico de gallo and tortillas.

Pressure Cooker Hard-Boiled Eggs

Rating: 5 stars 124
If you happen to raise your own chickens or have access to really fresh eggs, a pressure cooker is the best way to make hard-cooked eggs. It doesn't really save time (the pressure cooker's usual claim to fame), but here's why it's great: it actually makes fresh eggs easy to peel!

Microwave Lemon Curd

Rating: 5 stars 661
This is a delectable lemon curd recipe with the added attraction of being quick and easy to make. It is particularly useful when entertaining and short on time.

Sheet Pan Ratatouille

Rating: 5 stars 16
Ratatouille is a classic vegetarian French dish that I made in one pan in no time and got the most caramelized and tender vegetables.

PB and J Mini Mug Cakes

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
If your a PB and J lover, then you will love this recipe! Serve with whipped cream.

Rice Cooker Spanish Rice

Rating: 3.5 stars 16
This is a great, easy way to make a delicious side dish when cooking Mexican for dinner. My kids really love it, too. Substitutions for spices and vegetables are fine -- add the tastes that your family likes most. You can make this on the stovetop in a skillet with a lid, as well. Bring all ingredients to a boil and stir well; cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until rice is soft. If you add some of the optional ingredients, this can be an excellent main dish. Try adding chopped green chile peppers. Tastes great with the Enchilada II recipe.

Cast Iron Buttermilk Biscuits

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
Experimentation and a need for more biscuits per batch led me to what we think are the best biscuits anywhere! For optimum flavor, these must be baked in hot, buttered cast iron skillets. They are great for breakfast with gravy or jellies. Also excellent with beef stew for dinner. My husband likes the leftover biscuits even better. He breaks them open on a plate and smothers them with molasses.

Instant Chocolate Hard Shell

Rating: 4.5 stars 29
Two ingredients and less than 5 minutes to a delicious chocolate candy shell for ice cream. After trying recipe after recipe that turned out either rock hard or thick gummy hard shells - I thought to read the ingredient list on a bottle of the store stuff and came up with this! You can use any oil that has NO flavor or has a flavor compatible with chocolate and your ice cream - canola or soybean work ok here, but the coconut oil sends the flavor over the top and makes it a tad crunchier! Drizzle on top of your favorite ice cream!
