Favorite Recipes

recipies I've tried & liked!

There's nothing quite like enjoying a homemade hand-pie after a long day in the kitchen. These freezer-friendly blueberry hand pies are the perfect way to celebrate blueberries all month long.

Pizza Buns - Just made these for lunches this week & they're yummy! The recipe isn't very specific when it comes to shaping. NEXT TIME: Divide dough into 2, not 3. Make 10 buns out of each. Put 4 rows of 5 buns in a 9x13 pan.

Made these for dinner with homemade salsa & guacamole. They are good but need a little somethin'. I'd add some taco seasoning to the filling next time. Also, I just mixed all the ingredients together in the rice pot (including the sour cream). I'm too lazy to layer & dollop!

Baked Maple Bars, and you might even have all the ingredients on hand right now! Just made these. Very good but I will reduce the cinnamon to 1tsp next time as it takes over the flavor of the maple.

chocolate raspberry cupcakes - I didn't make the cupcakes, just the icing but it was DELISH!

ARE YOU KIDDING CAKE...1 box cake mix, any flavor 3 large eggs beaten 1 can pie filling, any flavor THAT'S IT.. see recipe for baking instructions

Cinnamon bread - made it today, doubled the recipe & split it into three loaves. EXCELLENT!!

Another yummy bread but this one felt like it took a long time to make but that could be because the instructions are unnecessarily complicated! We all really liked the crust on this one (especially since I sprinkled it with course garlic salt before baking). Made it in 6 mini loaves.

Simple Sesame Noodles. You can even add chicken and vegetabes. This was delicious but I think the canola oil is unnecessary. Next time I'll just use some chicken stock instead. I tried rice noodles but it was too sticky... I'll use pasta next time.

Greek Pita Bread - simple, soft & yummy. The instructions are overly complicated so I've simplified: 2.25tsp yeast 1tbsp sugar 1.5c warm water 2tsp salt 4c flour 1tbsp olive oil. Mix first 3 ingred & proof for 10min. Add rest of ingred & knead 10min, I use my kitchen aid. Cover & rise 1-2 hrs until 2x size. Divide into 6-8 balls & roll flat, about 1/4 inch thick. Bake @350 on lightly oiled pan 4min/side, they'll be white. Cool & cover. Panfry in a bit of oil to brown & warm before use

Blast from the past.... Spinach Dip Ingredients - 1 pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry, 1c sour cream, 1c mayo, 1 pkg knorr® vegetable recipe mix, 1 can water chestnuts, drained and chopped, 3 green onions, chopped (optional)

Zesty Lime Shrimp & Avocado Salad Recipe - dice it up small & serve with chips.

Buffalo chicken crescent ring - don't use a pizza stone, it doesn't get hot fast enough to crisp the bottom.

Raspberry Swirl Sweet Rolls... Second rise only needs an hour if you do it in a warmed (to 200 then turned off) oven. Definitely cover with sprayed foil for last half of baking. 375 for 25-30 min. Add some cream cheese to the glaze. Try with blueberries. Note: to make ahead, do the second rise at room temp over night. The frozen berries make it too cold to allow it to rise in the fridge over night!!

OMG soooo yummy!!! - Lemon Truffle Pie. I've made it several times & it rocks!! Graham crust all the way (store bought works perfectly)

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls But don't ever put water in melted chocolate! Use cream instead!

Made these with sausage meat! Campfire onion bombs, stuff an onion with ground meat and seasonings. Roll in foil, toss in fire for 10 min, roll around then cook 10 min more. Make sure the onion caramelizes - DELISH!!

Tanya's Snickerdoodles Allrecipes.com - my childhood memories don't include almond extract so I just increased the vanilla. Oh, use GOOD vanilla in these & flatten them a bit before baking!!

Sweet Tea (makes 1 gallon) - I reduce the sugar to 1c & add about 1/4c lemon juice.

SPICY PEPPERONI CHEESESTICKS - I skipped the oregano & chilli powder & sprinkled the top with garlic salt & Parmesan in addition to the cheese. I also put strips of American cheese in with the pepperoni. Big hit!! Recipe made 8

Great Pizza Dough 90 min

pudding chocolate chip cookies... Made these last night. super easy, soft, vanilla-y dough. Pudding mix is what makes the cookies so freaking delicious.

Creamy Farfalle With Salmon and Peas: Recipes: Self.com

Grandma's Country White Bread ($0.39 per loaf). Very good white bread. I used 2 regular sized loaf pans but probably could've made 3. Her loaf pans must be big!
