top 10 [new] favorite recipes

Top Ten {Tuesday}

My husband describes it as some sort of mid-life crisis. I say my new found love for cooking/baking is because after a year and a half, my husband is home seven nights a week rather than three. I actually have someone to cook for!

I've been making new recipes almost every night, so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites, in no particular order:


(sorry for the photo quality, some are mobile photos)

1. Chili Lime Chicken Tostadas

2. Best Basic Brownie

(just a tip on these, don't put M&Ms in them if you want them to look pretty. trust me.)

3. Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta

4. Pasta with Tomato-Bleu Cheese Sauce

hey, I never said these were healthy recipes


5. Granny's Chocolate Cobbler


6. Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

7. Crockpot Lasagna

8. The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

9. Zesty Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

And for #10...

With all this recipe searching I knew it was a perfect excuse to find a spiffy new method for organizing them. My little box just wasn't cutting it. My new Cath Kidston Recipe Organizer arrived in the mail today! Here are a few peeks at the inside...





  1. Great post! I am always stumped about what to make. I don't mind making it, I just loathe having to think about it. Thanks for sharing!

  2. thanks Claudia, and thank you for the recipe organizer suggestions, I loved the russel + hazel one as well, just a little pricey

  3. I love your new recipe book! The box still seems to be the best method for me...but your book looks so much nicer!

    And chocolate cobbler??? Never tried that but I will definitely be adding that to my recipe "box"


  4. it is SO GOOD. with vanilla ice cream on top of course.

  5. Mmmmm.....Definitely will be back to make these recipes. Great post!
