2 Hour Crockpot BreadEasy to make 2 HOUR Crockpot Bread recipe. Throw it in the crock pot and you will have soft homemade bread in 2 hours! This is the best bread to serve with creamy soups and casseroles.
Cucumber Tomato Avocado SaladSo, since I don't cook, this is my go-to salad that I can actually make!
Easy Peasy 1 of Everything Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesThis is our family “go to” for something sweet and easy. My husband invented the simple “1 ingredient” to simplify our lives and make it easy for our kids to make. I love this recipe because even I who is a “cooking challenged person” can make and be proud of my yummy product! Enjoy!
Peanut Butter PlaydoughA fun and tasty treat that will keep kids busy. It’s a Peanut Butter Lover’s Dream!
Kay Brew's Famous Banana Bread (or Muffins)Put those nasty looking bananas to good use. Goes great w/ coffee.
Brownie PancakesBrownie pancakes are a special way to start your day with the combination of brownies, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream. They are easy to make and will be a big hit for your next breakfast!
Hashbrown CasseroleMy family is made up of 4 children and 6 grandchildren plus spouses and friends. We enjoy the country cooking at Cracker Barrel, so I found a copy recipe of Cracker Barrel's hashbrowns. It is a side that I would always order. I changed it a little to suit my taste. It feeds a crowd. It is quick to prepare and reasonably priced. My family enjoys it .
Mom's Baked Chop SueyThis recipe means a lot to me because it reminds me of my Mom and family together for dinner! I love it because I think of Mom when I bake it, it’s quick and makes great lunch leftovers!
Souper Chicken TetrazziniThis is one of my "go to" recipes that I use when I have left over baked chicken. I always have these ingredients on hand in my pantry to create a good "home cooked" meal.
Black Bean Cakes with Cilantro SauceI got this recipe from Sticky Fingers when Jake took the class long ago. This is an easy vegetarian recipe that is also kid-friendly.
Neighborhood CandySo this was written by my Grammy (mom's mom) about 40 years ago on the back of a bank deposit slip! Haha! She made the best stuff and we called it "Neighborhood Candy". It got it's name because it makes A LOT and my brother would go take it to all the neighbors and they loved it!
Half Pound CakeThis is my Great Aunt Martha's Pound Cake. It is delicious and really good to use for strawberry shortcake!
Super Easy Veggie SpaghettiI use this recipe sometimes to clear out veggies that are on the verge of expiring, so I’ll throw together whatever is on hand. But my favorite vegetables to use are:
Chicken or Vegetarian Tortilla SoupThis recipe works well with or without chicken. To make a vegetarian version, just substitute vegetable broth for chicken broth and leave out the chicken. The flavor is surprisingly enjoyable for the few ingredients it uses. You can easily add additional vegetables such as corn, cabbage, etc., to add more substance. Don’t forget the garnishes!! They really help make the soup work.
Chicken SpaghettiI love making this recipe for my family because it's easy and everyone loves it. I usually make it on the weekend so it can cook all day while I'm busy doing things around the house. I was given this recipe at a wedding shower I had 16 years ago when I was just learning to cook. It's always a crowd pleaser.
German Chocolate Pound CakeThis is a simple cake recipe that has been handed down in my family for four generations; from my grandmother to my children.
My Fried RiceThis is a combination of several rice based recipes that I have combined over time into this recipe. The rice must be completely cooled before you can successfully make this dish. You can make the rice several nights ahead and keep it in an air tight container for several days. It can also be frozen and saved for later use.
Behavior Management TacosWhenever I want anybody in my family to see things “my way”, I announce I’m making tacos for dinner. There’s nothing miraculous about the recipe—but somehow they WORK!
Chipotle Black Bean Tortilla Soup w/Cashew QuesoI love this recipe because it is a quick, healthy, vegetarian option for a delicious tortilla soup! It's great for cuddling up on the couch and reading a book.
Fruit CobblerThis is my Nanny Jo's cobbler recipe that everyone in my family requests on special occasions. It's simple to make and absolutely delicious!
Red Beans and RiceThis is one of my favorites! Traditionally, Monday is red beans and rice day in New Orleans. At one time, Monday was laundry day. This is a dish that servants would put on in the morning and let it cook all day while they did laundry. It is an easy one pot, slow cooked meal that is satisfying on every level!
Thai Nam Tok (Beef Waterfall Salad)This recipe tastes like my mother's version of Nam Tok. The recipe is authentic and easy to follow. Also, it's super healthy. It's basically a beef salad, with a TON of flavor.
No Bake Chocolate Oat CookiesThese are my favorite cookies! I love them because they are easy to make and taste delicious! You don’t have to wait for them to bake in an oven. They are also gluten-free!
Poppy Seed ChickenI chose this recipe, first, because it was given to me by one of my best friends and it reminds me of her every time I make it. ❤️ Second, it is a delicious and simple recipe that requires few ingredients. Also, this is a recipe that kids could help assemble by measuring and mixing ingredients, and layering in the casserole dish.
Pumpkin Sopapilla CheesecakeMy second year at Boone during Thanksgiving a teacher made this. It was absolutely delicious and always brings me comfort. It is also very easy to make (and eat hehe)
Herbed Pot RoastI chose this recipe because it's one of the recipes that my mom has cooked since I was child. I love the smell, taste, and all the memories it brings.
Turkey Taco Lettuce WrapsI love using this recipe when I've had a few days of unhealthy eating habits. I use this recipe as a 'reload' to get back on track with eating healthier. The flavors and the crunchy bites are the best! Filling is loosely adapted from Cooks Illustrated.
AREPASArepa (Spanish pronunciation: [aˈɾepa]) is a type of food made of corn dough, originating from the northern region of South America in pre-Columbian times, and is notable in the cuisines of Colombia and Venezuela. This is a continual battle between Venezuelans and Colombians. Each country claim it as their own typical dish. Arepas are not sandwiches, tortillas, gorditas or tamales, they are just Arepas. You can fill them in with whatever you want to, chicken, meat, turkey, cheese, avocado, guacamole, black beans. If you are a beginner, cheese and butter it’s a good way to start and then, once you are in love with the flavor you can use your imagination and make your own combination of different tastes. If you go to Venezuela or meet a Venezuelan, and you are offered an Arepa, it means you are important to that person and are welcome either to their family or it’s the start of a new friendship. You can find the dough at HEB, Target, Fiesta.
Spinach Artichoke LasagnaThis is one of my vegetarian daughter's favorite dishes. It's super healthy and easy to make :)
Downeast Maine Pumpkin BreadI make this for family and friends during Thanksgiving....it makes a great treat for those you love! The request for this bread comes at all times of the year though so I usually have cans of pumpkin always on hand just in case. It is easy, delicious, and makes my house smell so nice!
Cake from ScratchI do not frost this cake and it tends to disappear very quickly. My mom gave me this recipe and has been making this since we were kids. We seldom, if ever, bought a cake from a store or bakery and this was always a treat. I hope you try it and you can always add whatever you want to make it your own.
Tortellini SoupThe definition of cozy in a bowl, this tortellini soup is easy to put together and its hearty flavor pleases everyone at the table!
Kroger Fried ChickenThis recipe is for 3 chicken breasts. You may need to increase the ingredients for larger quantities. I came across this recipe 10 years ago. I was in the Kroger grocery store in Houston. I was waiting in line to check out. The cashier must of seen my face, as I was unsure about the recipe I had found online for fried chicken. It was my first time making it. The cashier saw I had 14 spices on the conveyor belt. She asked me what I was making and I told her fried chicken. She said oh no, let me teach you an easy way. She gave me the ingredients and told me what to do. I have gotten so many compliments on it. I hope you enjoy it. I normally don’t measure, so these numbers are my guesstimates.
White Bean Chicken ChiliThis recipe is from Weight Watchers. I like this recipe because it has a lot of fresh ingredients and it’s as healthy as I want it to be. Also, it is made from ingredients that are usually in my home already.
Grilled Apple and Swiss Cheese SandwichThis is a simple one, just a small twist on a sandwich favorite. The tartness of the apple plays well with the cheese. One of my sons doesn’t like Swiss cheese and substituted pepper jack and loved it.
Cranberry PunchSo, this punch makes a lot. I serve it in a very large punch bowl. I actually start with half of the juices and ginger ale, but almost always end up using it all. This is a family pleaser. They always ask, “Are you making the punch?” when we have get togethers. It’s good for showers, birthdays, just any large gathering.
Homemade TortillasThis recipe is from "theprairiehomestead.com". Because I know that it can be challenging to buy certain things at the store these days, tortillas being one of them, here is a recipe to make your own at home. Enjoy!
Pollo Guisado (Chicken Stew)This is a family recipe that reminds me of spending time with my mom and grandma in the kitchen. My daughter loves it and it is one of the only things she will eat without a battle.
Chicken Green Bean & Wild Rice CasseroleI picked this recipe because It reminded me of my childhood. This was also the first “meal” I made in college and would try to impress my friends thinking I could cook….. even though it was a casserole. This recipe is so easy and even better as leftovers!
Almond Flour Strawberry Shortcake Cake with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese FrostingI primarily eat dairy free and gluten free things and this cake (not the frosting) is! My mom makes it every year for me for my birthday and I usually make it for my sisters. It is so delicious and you will never know it is “healthier” than your normal cake. Here is a picture of one I made. I hope you give this recipe a try!!!
Jalapeno Ranch DipI enjoy this dip because it gives it a little kick and there are optional ingredients to make it healthy. My family always asks for it when we have family get-togethers.
Grilled Chicken NuggetsI got this recipe from pinterest because it is a copycat of Chick fil a’s grilled nuggets and I LOVE them. I know the first few steps are interesting but it is SO worth it.
Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Popper CasseroleThis is total comfort food and the leftovers are just as delicious!
Avocado Tuna SaladHere’s a recipe I’ve always enjoyed for its light, fresh flavor. There are minimal ingredients and great taste!
East Side King's Fried Brussels SproutsWhen I was a kid, my parents cut a deal with me. I got one "off vegetable" which meant that whenever this "off vegetable" was served, I did not have to eat it, but every other vegetable was fair game. I searched my brain for the thing I despised most, my mom's mushy boiled brussels sprouts that tasted as weird as they smelled. Being a small child, I didn't even take into account that Mom made brussels about once or twice a year. My brother made a smarter choice, broccoli, and got out of eating his "off vegetable" almost weekly. All this to say that for the longest time in my life, brussels sprouts were a huge no no. Flash forward to SXSW about a decade ago. My buddy told me I needed to try the brussels sprouts salad from this place called East Side King. Reluctantly I agreed, and soon thereafter my opinion of brussels sprouts changed forever. This is the dish that conquered the implausible. (Taken from Texas Monthly)
Apple Cinnamon Overnight OatsThese are so delicious!! My favorite thing to eat when I was pregnant.
Vegetarian ChiliChili chili chili, can’t you see? Sometimes your ways just hypnotize me and even when you’re made without meat?! Yes, that’s right. I’d like to introduce to you a really good, really “meaty” and satisfying vegetarian chili that, in fact, does not have meat in it at all. This chili features a hearty mixture of walnuts, mushrooms, and carrots that can beautifully stand in place of your ground beef and absorbs the big flavors of sautéed onion and garlic, diced green chiles, and all those spices. When scooped and topped with some avocado or cheese, sour cream or tortilla chips, it’s just warming and so satisfying in that chili-specific way.
Pizza Dough/Pizza RecipeI like this recipe because it’s easy to make, my girls enjoyed helping me make it, we prepared it to our liking, they got some practice in measuring and it was yummy!
Banana PuddingGreat recipe for Summer days or whenever you want a special treat! Special family recipe, we always have it at family gatherings and it goes fast!
Buffalo Chicken DipGame Day? Potluck? Feeling hungry?? You’re all set with this delicious dish! It’s a crowd favorite at the Schieck house, but fair warning – be prepared to print out your recipe for easy distribution, as you will now achieve celebrity status…
Tuna CasseroleMy Mother-in-Law gave me this recipe when I married my husband 15 years ago. When I asked her where she got it, her response, “Oh you know, just one of the ladies from my church.” I wish I could thank that lady because this recipe has become a fan favorite in my house. It’s that first scoop that’s never quite perfect but full of ooey-gooey cheese that keeps you coming back for more!
Taco SaladThis recipe was given to me as a newlywed by John's aunt at our first family reunion with the Benners 39 years ago.
Slow Cooker Tomato Basil SoupI love this recipe because you simply add all your ingredients into a crockpot, set it and forget it. So creamy, comforting and EASY! Perfect for a rainy day with croutons or grilled cheese sandwich.
Grape SaladI got this recipe from a former parent during one of our celebrations at school. It is sweet enough to be a dessert but without the guilt. Also you can use different fruit if you're not a grapes fan. I love it!
Green Chili Pork PosoleWhy do I love this recipe? Because it reminds me of growing up in San Antonio and spending cozy evenings with family around Christmas time. Also, it is super easy to make and so my husband will usually do the cooking on this one. Win Win.
Green Chile and Hamburger MeatThis is the recipe I love during the fall and or winter. It is a simple easy recipe when you’re craving comfort food.
Italian Sausage TortelliniI love this recipe because I love Italian food, it’s easy to make, and super yummy!
Peanut Butter Dog TreatsThese homemade dog treats using almond flour, peanut butter and cinnamon are super easy to make and the dogs just love them.
Caprese SaladKeep your Caprese salad refrigerated until it’s time to eat! My favorite way to eat Caprese salad: On a float, in the pool, on a warm summer evening.
Low Sugar Energy BitesI love making these! I am not a chocolate fan so I don't add the cacao powder and I use vanilla protein powder instead of chocolate. These are great for a quick bite between meals or something small to add to breakfast. Super yummy!
Overnight OatsI love how easy this is! You just mix everything together, pour into some 8 oz mason jars and refrigerate until you're ready to eat. I am not an early riser so I'm often rushed in the morning, so this is great to grab on your way out the door for a quick, yummy breakfast. I usually top with cranberries, blueberries or strawberries.
Chicken Curry BowlI love this delicious and healthy chicken curry bowl. There is zero spice in this recipe, but you could definitely add some if you'd like! This is a great go-to to make something quick and easy that you have made a lot of to have a few times throughout the week.
Apple Pie SmoothieI think this smoothie is so yummy and refreshing in the morning. It's a great break from the usual green smoothies every once in a while. Just a little something to add to your smoothie options!
Salmon PattiesThis is one of my family's favorite recipes. Especially Ben! I have to fix these anytime he comes home. They are a little time consuming, but using the skinless, boneless salmon saves so much time. If you want to use the large cans with skin and bones, you would only need 1-2 cans after deboning and taking off the skin.
Pineapple Cheese BallI don't really think I need to say anything about this one! Everybody seems to love it. This is the one I make at Christmas in miniature for everyone!
Doggie Ice CreamThis is a quick and easy treat! We sometimes buy the frozen dog treats at the store, but that can get expensive. This is a much cheaper way for them to cool off in the Texas heat!
