Oooh, I can't wait to take a good look at these! The pork tacos will definitly be on the list!

Deep in the Heart said...

So many tried and all loved. Let's see, we did wheat pizza crust this week (super yummy, but I was initially worried when it didn't rise as puffy as others - was it supposed to? still good). Also did parmesan grits this week. Brian doctored with a little butter. We've done your Sloppy-Joes, chicken taco soup (definite fave), of course the crock pot BBQ which helps us feel like we're back on the east coast, pancakes, and hummus. Granola bars have been on my to-do list for a looooong time. Maybe I'll do them this week and let you know how it goes.

I've been enjoying lurking on your site for a while (I'm a friend of "Mama in Training") and have been enjoying reading your recipes. Thanks for compiling them in one place!

Slacker Mama said...

We've done the pancakes which are a hit with the girls.

John *loves* the Pork BBQ and the Chicken Tetrazzini.

And, I'm snacking on the microwave popcorn right now!

Still have a ton I need to try, though...

Deep in the Heart said...

Forgot microwave popcorn - we use this one weekly. And also wanted to mention how the pizza dough is kid friendly. Both of the kids liked adding the ingredients to the mixer and of course playing with the dough. We used it to make calzone so they also spread the ricotta mixture and sprinkled with cheese and chicken sausage.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together, I am not an archive reader, so this makes it easier to find your good stuff! I can't wait to try some.

Steel Magnolia said...

looks great and like a lot of hard work...can't wait to dig in!

Angela said...

Thanks for the links, I can't wait to check them all out!

Shannon said...

Did your husband make a yummy fried okra recipe that you posted one time? Or am I confused with another blog? I can't find the recipe anywhere and we have gobs of fresh okra in the fridge!

Creative Escapes said...

I am your newest follower - found you on someone else's blog - WOW - how could I have missed you - I am in love with your site now!!! Hmmm I'm hungry!

Toni said...

Just found your blog and am so excited to try some new recipes! i've been looking at the recipe index, and I'm wondering if you keep it updated? I see the date on the index is from back in 2008. I didn't want to bother looking through the archives if it is updated, or at least if I know it's not been updated since that date, then I can check out the archives since then..>Thanks!
