Recipe Box, Ten Tried & True

In honor of Groundhog’s Day,

I rounded up my all time favorite, go-to tried and true recipes that I make over and over again

 

 

perfect grilled cheese

 

 

They are as easy as a Perfect Grilled Cheese sandwich or a Raspberry Brownie Cheesecake Kebab

If you’ve got pie crust in the freezer and eggs in the fridge, you can turn almost anything into a quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner

Asian Short Ribs go in the slow cooker with just 2 other ingredients for an irresistible meal

Sweet Chili BBQ Pork Chops 1-2-3 are just as easy

For a tried and true casserole I turn to enchiladas

Chicken and Vegetable Enchiladas, Savory Pumpkin Enchiladas, Spanish Enchiladas, Tacoladas, Chicken Salsa Enchiladas

Secret Chicken Enchiladas,  California Lite Cheese Enchiladas

They are so versatile, chicken, ham, beef, vegetable, bean, anything wrapped in a tortilla and smothered with sauce and cheese is going to be a winner

Magic Potatoes are the family favorite, they are cooked cut side down in butter, garlic salt and Parmesan, making them soft on the inside with a finger licking crispy crust

Roasted Vegetables, dressed with olive oil and seasonings,  are always on the menu

Broccoli Candy, Brussels sprouts, Green Beans & Carrots, Balsamic Sweet Pepper & Broccoli, Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

Roasted Tomato Zucchini Boats

  1. So many good ideas here to answer the dreaded question “whats for dinner.” Sometimes we love the good grilled cheese along with soup, especially when it’s cold and raining. Today looks like kind of day! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes you share Jenna.

    • Thank you Emily! It’s hard to believe it’s cold and rainy there, it’s sunny and warm on the coast- but it is supposed to be rainy and cool this weekend. My tote and I will be traveling north again soon 🙂
