ISO: Tried and True Recipes

Posted Oct 11 2013 5:03am

Slowly but surely, I’m getting to be a better cook (I couldn’t have gotten much worse!), and I try new recipes a lot.

Recently, I’ve made shredded beef tacos , apple pork chops with caramelized onions , crock pot turkey chili , jalepeno cheddar chicken burgers , and more.

Most of the stuff I try out is okay, but with few exceptions, I haven’t found much that I want to make over and over… or even again.

I need some recipes that can’t be beat – but that are easy/quick enough for weeknights and that my kids will eat. (Hey, I’m a poet and I don’t know it.)

Any suggestions? What do you make with recipes you have memorized? What are your go-to meals? Your kids’ favorites?

I don’t have many, but I do have a couple to share (some of which I have mentioned before!).

First, Kate’s favorite – slow cooker chicken tortilla soup from

The Pioneer Woman’s fresh green beans . I made these a LOT this summer, and they are fantastic.

And also the Pioneer Woman’s bacon-wrapped jalapeno thingies.

Sam saw these on my computer screen and said “Oh, not those things again.” They weren’t such a hit with the kids, but the adults? They inhale them. Just don’t put them (and the associated tooth picks) under the broiler. They will burst into flames. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

So anyway, back to my original question. Anyone have recipes to share?
