The other morning Scott was making waffles for breakfast and he asked if I had a recipe. I immediately pulled out the sheet from my recipe scrapbook. He took one look at the worn page and said “wow, you must really like this one.” There are about a dozen recipes that I’ve found online that my family loves loves loves, so I thought I would share our favorite family meals from around the web. I’m not sure why so many of them come from Allrecipes–I’m guessing that several of these are from way before I discovered Pinterest!
Fluffy French Toast from allrecipes.com – I used to make French Toast the way that my mom taught me–just throwing together ingredients in a bowl and hoping for the best. The result was alway edible, but then Scott found this recipe and ruined my French Toast forever. It must be the addition of flour? It’s now one of the kids’ favorites for breakfast. On Pinterest
Banana Muffins from allrecipes.com – My favorite is actually banana bread, but I love making these banana muffins in mini cups for the girls’ breakfast when we are on the go. I usually cut the sugar down by half and they’re still delicious. On Pinterest
Fried Rice from food.com – Truthfully this recipe acts more like a gateway and I don’t refer to it anymore. I don’t measure any of the ingredients, skip the sesame oil and bean sprouts, add different veggies, use a combo of oil and butter but don’t know how much, etc. And instead of adding meat which would probably dry out on my watch, I pair it with sweet and sour pork balls. Mmmm! On Pinterest
Salisbury Steak from allrecipes.com – Scott would eat this meal for dinner every night if I’d make it for him. I stick pretty close the recipe but add mushrooms to the sauce. The girls love it and the patties without gravy was one of Evie’s first favorite meats. On Pinterest
Parmesan Crusted Chicken from Hellmanns – I feel sinful including this recipe in the round-up, but my family doesn’t have the best track record with chicken. However, everyone will devour this chicken and the leftovers taste pretty good as well. On Pinterest
Vegetable Beef Stew from allrecipes.com – I love this beef stew for two reasons–it makes a ton of stew and the leftovers freeze well. It’s also a great way to dump in all the vegetables. Comfort in a bowl. On Pinterest
Creamy Tomato and Bacon Linguine from Foodie with Family – This is a newer one in our rotation but it’s so delicious and I love that it cooks in all one pot. The leftovers the next day are even better. On Pinterest
Garlic Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops from Big Oven – A meat thermometer is key for this recipe or any pork chop dish. It’s so easy to over cook chops, but done correctly and this recipe has a great outside crust with a tender and juicy inside.
Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies from allrecipes.com. They’re so amazing. Though I cut the recipe in half because this makes a billion and I can’t resist them. I also add a bit of salt because what kind of cookie recipe doesn’t have salt?! On Pinterest
