    My favorite dish to make for my family is lasagna. It is done only a few times a year as by the time I make the sauce, gather the 6 types of cheese, fresh sausage from the butcher and herbs from the garden I am tired. Then there is putting it together and baking. But my family loves it and it is always gone quickly, just leaving me with a lot of dishes to clean up!

    I love to make chocolate strawberry cream puffs. They’re tough to get just right, but when you do they just melt in your mouth. Mmmmmm!

    Gazpacho! I love all the fresh veggies that go into it, and it’s so refreshing on a hot summer day!

    I love making black bean soup! It’s quick and simple, but oh so hearty and filling. Plus, every time I make it, it’s a little bit different!

    My favorite dish to make is a recipe I got from Emeril called Marsh’s Tenderloin Fried Steaks. It’s super yummy and my husband’s favorite!

    I love to make strawberries and cream stuffed French toast with my chocolate berry drizzle. I use thick cinnamon swirl bread and a yummy vanilla egg dip, fresh strawberries and cream cheese, and I top it all off with my chocolate berry sauce and a dusting of powdered sugar. Mmmm… I think I am going to go make some right now actually. Anybody want some?

  • Reply Rachel August 6, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    oooooh, definitely bread from artisan bread in five minutes a day, and whole wheat pasta with fresh salsa.

    My favorite dish to make is a Italian Pasta salad. I use colored cooked squiggle pasta, artichoke hearts, black olives, kidney beans, red onions, cherry tomatoes, and garbanzo beans. I mix it all together with Bernsteins Italian dressing (use a lot of dressing it gets soaked up as it sits). Refrigerate Best when made several hours or a day ahead.

    Hmmm… are snickerdoodles a dish? 😉 My favorite thing to make is pizza – from scratch. I love everything about it, from kneading the dough to creating all kinds of tasty topping combos. Current fave: olive oil/garlic/herb sauce with thick cut bacon, sweet corn, and fresh mozzarella! Try it.

    Stuffed french toast. I’m still perfecting it, but it’s good no matter what.

    I love making things like sweet and sour chicken, I’ve had to go gluten free and this is one of the things that I really missed getting from the take-away.

    Nothing tops homemade cheese enchaladas with green chile sauce with mexican rice and beans on the side!

    my favorite thing to make is ‘grown up’ ice cream. 3empered chocolate mixed with milk Baileys and Meyer’s Rum. Add a banana or strawberries and freeze. It’s fantastic!

    I Love to make Chicken Tetrazzini. It was a childhood favorite that carried over into adulthood. It was what I used to make for all my friends in my early 20’s and it has remained a staple in my married life. It’s an easy dish that whips together using the microwave, and then heats in the oven. Always a great comfort dish and goes even better with a nice glass of wine!

    My favorite thing to make is homemade apple/cinnamon muffins. It’s a super easy recipe and my 2 1/2 year old son LOVES them!

  • Reply Kirsten August 7, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    Ham and Potato Casserole. Everyone loves it but it is time consuming making the cheese sauce and all the dicing and chopping, etc. But worth it.
