Gwen @ Tolivers to Texas — Big Family Recipe Wrap-Up
Then there was the time that I looked down the assembly line of Toliver children preparing homemade potpie – to see my 4yo son pre-chewing the roast beef and spitting it into the pan.

These pancakes are Homeschooling6 kid approved! The children loved them and were asking for more.

Allergies don’t mean you have to eat boring food. We’re serving creamy potato soup topped with bacon and cheese, along with a side of soft, fluffy cheddar-garlic biscuits to scoop up the last bits in the bowl.
Lisa Marie @ Learning Titus 2 — Going Bananas Banana Bread Recipe
Back when I nannied full-time, the mom regularly asked me to make banana bread in the mornings. She simply dumped all the ingredients into her blender, whipped it all up, dumped into her pans and slapped it into the oven. It was easy enough to do and tasted soooooo good.
LaRee @ Broad Horizons — What’s for Breakfast?
When I first heard someone mention this, I kind of shuddered . . . I am NOT a fan of combining sweet and savory, so this didn’t even sound remotely good.
Heather @ Only Passionate Curiosity — The Best Cheesecake EVER
My husband is an amazing cook…. so good that I don’t even TRY anymore because it’s just not worth it. I decided to surprise him with a cheesecake, and guess what?? It was pretty amazing good, despite me not knowing a *thing* about making cheesecake.
Rebekah @ There Will Be a $5 Charge for Whining — Lentil Love
Lentils may be one of the most frugal foods on the planet. We’ve also been eating them for a long time. The lentil has been part of our diet since Bible Times. But I betcha that my lentils are even tastier than the ones Esau sold his birthright for in the book of Genesis.

Here’s a dinner and dessert everyone loves around here.
Sarah @ Delivering Grace — Cheese and Onion Quiche
It is useful to have some stand-by recipes that aren’t expensive and use ingredients already on hand. Cheese and onion quiche is exactly that and it is a “forgiving recipe” so many of the ingredients can be substituted.
Debbie @ Debbie’s Homeschool Corner — Cranberry Oat Bars
I think Cranberry Chocolate Oat Bars will be one of our new favorite recipes. I would describe the these cookies as a cross between an oatmeal cookie and granola bar. We thought that the cranberries and chocolate were a great combination!
Clarissa @ Homeschool Counting Our Blessings — Recipe: Healthy Banana Bars
As I type, I am enjoying a delicious afternoon snack that I came up with after my husband requested I make some sort of healthy/energy bars. The result was a delicious banana bar, that is very healthy!

Since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, I have been thinking of doing a special day that day like I did for Valentines day. I am going to do some baking such as muffins and cookies, but I would like to do some traditional Irish foods as well. One of the things I am going to try is Irish Tea Brack. My post has some info about it as well as a recipe.

Down here in Florida the weather is already getting warmer, and I decided to share a recipe for one of my family’s favorite summer day snacks.
Tess @ Circling through This Life — Recipe: Creamy Hungarian Goulash
This recipe combines the green pepper and onions my dad added with the creaminess my boss, Rick, used and added the convenience of the slow cooker. I include green beans giving this dish a flavor that resembles the Minnesota favorite “Tator Tot Hotdish”.
Kym @ Homeschool Coffee Break — Hamentaschen
On Saturday evening, we tried something new – Hamentaschen. These triangular cookies are part of the celebration of Purim, and we thought they sounded delicious. And we were right – they are very tasty, and not very difficult to make.
Lis @ ~Acorns~ Nuggets of Gold~ — Wintry Weather-Low Budget-Lentil Stew/Chili
A latecomer to lentil cuisine, who knew they could be so tasty and toasty, not to mention low-budget and adaptable?
Lisa @ Chickens, Bunnies, and Homeschool — Chicken Gnocchi Soup
I was dreaming about my favorite soup ‘Chicken Gnocchi’ as the snow was falling this week.

I served this at a church pot luck recently and EVERYONE was asking me for the recipe!

Wondering what to do with some leftover chicken or turkey? I have a simple but tasty recipe that uses ingredients you have on hand & comes together in a snap!
Karen @ Tots and Me — Shepherd’s Pie
It isn’t often that I find a dish that not only both my hubby and 16 year old daughter like, but both ask me for. I used to make Shepherd’s Pie without any added seasoning but once I started adding the seasoning I wondered why I hadn’t done it earlier.
Karyn @ Teach Beside Me — Food, Glorious Food
I love food! I love cooking, and I love collecting recipes to try. I collect recipes like it’s my job or something.
Amy @ Bow of Bronze — Pretty Purple Sweet Southern ColeSlaw (Using Produce)
I use a lot of red cabbage. I found out ages ago that red cabbage is one of the only natural ways to improve or replace liver enzymes. By far, my family’s favorite way to eat red cabbage is in our Pretty Purple Sweet Southern Cole Slaw recipe which was adapted from the Sweet Southern Cole Slaw recipe on Splendid Table.
Susan @ Real Frugal Homeschool — Apple Enchiladas
Apple Enchiladas are flour tortillas stuffed full of sweet apple pie filling and covered with a simple syrup and baked until yummy and golden…what could be better!
Laura @ Day by Day in Our World — Tuna Spaghetti: Great Meat-Free Dish for Lent and Beyond
Lent is in full swing and that means Friday meals have to be planned as meat free in our house. (And, my boys are sighing relief that we are not Orthodox where Fridays mean no meat OR dairy!)
Lexi @ Lextin Academy — No Nut Butter Chocolate Twist Cupcakes
This is our allergy free cupcake recipe to mimic peanut butter, chocolate cupcakes. I challenge anyone to tell that it’s gluten free, vegan, and not even made with real peanut butter. The cupcakes have a big peanut butter flavor with just enough chocolate. They are heavenly!
Hillary @ Our Homeschool Studio — Need a Chocolate Fix? How About the Best Brownies in the World?

This recipe was given to me by a friend about 7 years ago. It is so simple, and inexpensive. It is a real meat and potatoes meal around here.

These decedent chocolate chips cupcakes have a hidden, healthy secret ingredient! You will easily fool your children into eating healthy food!
Jenni @ Conversaving — The Joy of Bread-Making
There is nothing better than the smell of fresh-baked bread wafting through the house. I would also argue that there is nothing that tastes better on a cold winter’s day than a slice of fresh bread straight from the oven slathered with butter.
Marcy @ Ben and Me — When Is Purple Really Green?
See the bits of green? There’s as much spinach in this one as is in my favorite green smoothie!
