What I've been cooking
I have one more busy week left before things get back to normal around here. In the meantime, I'd thought I'd tell you which recipes I've found worth repeating recently.
Braised Ginger Pork:
I made a bad pork loin recipe recently that was really tough and flavorless. I wasn't sure if it was the recipe or the loin so to use up more of that same pork loin, I went with this tried and true recipe. I knew it would tender and delicious and it was.
Kielbasi with Beer & Onions:
I wanted a fast recipe that wasn't expensive. Kielbasi was on sale buy one get one free and this recipe only takes about 5 minutes to get in the crockpot. A no-brainer.
Big Game Baked Round Steak:
We have a ton of venison that I tend to forget about since it's in a separate freezer. This is one of my favorite venison recipes.
Deep Dish Taco Pizza:
I made up the meat portion of this pizza on Sunday and then during the week I just need to bake the pizza.
Amish Friendship Chocolate Bread:
I made this twice so far. I recently pulled some out of the freezer and remembered how delicious it was. I was just given more started so I'll have to make it again soon.
That's a fall-back recipe I go to often.
Grilled Chicken Marinade:
Grilling season is back but it's so easy to use the Cuisinart Griddler that more often I just use that.
I've made these waffles for my husband quite a few times. Sometimes I healthy them up with bran and whole wheat flour but they are best as the recipe is written.
Everybody loves porcupine meatballs. They are very flavorful for such a simple recipe.
I'm still using this recipe and sometimes I make stromboli with it which my husband LOVES. However, the meat is $$$ so I can only make stromboli about once every month or month and a half.
Stuffing Topped Chicken Bake
This is a simple recipe that's easy to fall back on.
Crock-Pot Pulled Pork:
I've made this twice already (two big batches with leftovers). It's not only great as a sandwich but I took some of the leftovers and added ground chipotle and cheese and made fantastic quesadillas.
