    Go-To Recipes

    What are your favorites?

    Ree's (The Pioneer Woman) Lasagna. Multiple people have told me it's the best lasagna they've had and request it often.

    Easy & Delicious Ranch-Parmesan Chicken. I've made this many many times. I like to use panko when I have it instead of bread crumbs.

    Parmesan & Sage-Crusted Pork Chops. Sooo good! Definitely use fresh sage, too. I've made it with dried sage but better with fresh.

    Cheesy Chili Mac. I've only made this once but it was sooo good. Will definitely be making it again.

    Roasted Brussel Sprouts. Favorite way to eat brussel sprouts. I've converted several people to eating brussel sprouts this way.

    Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe - CHOW
    we actually just made this for the first time yesterday, but it was really easy and SO good so we'll probably make it pretty often.

    Fettuccine Alfredo | The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond
    i really like this alfredo sauce! i like that it's minimal ingredients but it's not bland like a lot of alfredos are. i add a little bit of parsley as well.

    Jenny's Grilled Chicken Breasts Recipe -
    we used to do this one all the time when we had a grill, but we don't anymore. it's good though.

    Crock Pot Beer Chicken Recipe - 3 Points + - LaaLoosh
    this was amazing and my husband wouldn't shut up about it.

    i love that broccoli that's always circulating on facebook, too. shake up some florets with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, then bake for like half an hour or something at 375* i think? it's crunchy and deliciousss i love it.

    i also make garlic and oil pasta a lot, and pasta with plain tomato sauce. my grandpa makes the bessstststst tomato sauce and he showed me how he does it before i moved, it's simple but so good.

    These are my two new go-to recipes:

    Loaded Baked Sweet Potato | Skinnytaste

    Spaghetti Squash Sausage Lasagna Boats | Skinnytaste

    My other ones don't really have recipes, just things I tend to make repeatedly. We do romaine salads with grilled or baked meat frequently and lemon pepper chicken with hummus and veggies. We're trying to eat less carbs and dairy (since we eat them excessively) so I'm in a phase of revising my common meals.

    This is one of our favorites but is really dairy heavy:

    Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken | Skinnytaste

    I usually have extra filling so I make a side by stuffing baby bell peppers with it.

    Ooh ooh I'm making a ton of freezer meals today so my family won't starve while I'm in the hospital next week! Here are the recipes I'm trying out:

    Sour Cream Noodle Bake | The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond

    Chicken Spaghetti | The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond

    Chicken Potato Casserole Recipes

    Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole | Six Sisters' Stuff

    Shepherd's Pies Recipe - (I use beef, not lamb, and I put it all in casserole dishes, not single servings)

    And I just finished putting this chili in the crockpot:

    Beef Chili With Bacon And Black Beans Recipe - - 208132

    These are pretty veggie-light because DH and my kids really don't like cooked vegetables- I've chopped up lots of carrots/broccoli/peppers for them to put on the side.

    I make up most of the things that I cook so there's few recipes that I follow, but my faves so far are:

    Chef Mommy: Classic Chili (Slow Cooker)
    AWESOME chili. I use extra garlic and a whole can of diced green chilis.

    Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken with Fried Rice - Life In The Lofthouse
    Seriously tastes like legit sweet and sour chicken. And I replace the sugar with truvia and batter the chicken in just milk and flour to health-ify it.
