Food for Thought… Delish Recipes

Any bakers or chefs out there? Totally amateur, I mean, I don’t expect any professionals to be reading this. We have a brand new kitchen and so far I’ve only made a few meals and one pound cake in it. Do you have any tried and true recipes that you just love and that are always a hit?

I would love a recipe for chimichurri and tzatziki and other fun ethnic sauces. Have you made them? Sure, there’s tons of recipes out there, but that doesn’t mean they’re necessarily amazingly delish.

This afternoon I decided that I wanted to find a recipe for garlic chips. I found this one, that looks super easy peasy, but I’d add some salt or maybe oregano to them.

My french toast casserole

My favorite recipes:
Individual pies in a jar (got rave reviews and several people asked for the recipe)
Elaine’s Dump Pound cake (always a hit – I make it in a bundt pan with homemade buttercream icing)
Butternut Squash Soup (good hot or cold and definitely one of my favorites!)
Turkey Pot Pie (one of my favorite dishes, but the filling was overflowing the pie crusts like crazy. Almost could’ve made 2 complete pies with it.)
French Toast Casserole (This was SO good that we seriously ate the entire thing on and off during a single day)

Oh yes, it was a huge hit!

Recipes on my list to try:
Lemon Shaker Pie
Cookies in a Jar (well, the recipe itself, not just putting them together)
Garlic Wings
Peanut Butter Cups
Homegrown Potato Chips
Paula’s Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
Joy the Baker’s Apple Pie
Red Velvet Cake Balls (OMG i so totally need to make these soon!)
Key Lime Pie (This was a total staple growing up in Miami since we had a few key lime trees on our property. It’s on my “to try” list since I haven’t tried this recipe.)

    I learned to make tzatziki from a Greek, but I’d have to just show you in person how to make it. I don’t measure any thing, but do a good bit of tasting (kinda like how I make bruschetta. Hmmm.) 🙂

    Oh. I had Red Velvet Cake Balls and Bailey’s Cake Balls last Christmas. The red velvet ones I had had peppermint liquer in them, were dipped in white chocolate, and then sprinkled with crushed peppermints. Yum. The Bailey’s balls had bailey’s added to them and were covered in regular chocolate. Both were amazing, but the red velvet were my fave!

      I’m dipping these in vanilla (cuz i’m weird) and can’t wait to try them when they’re all prepared. I can safely say that the batter, cake, and cake/icing mixture is fab! These are kinda a test to see if they’re doable for the reception and so far, easy peasy. 🙂
