When you are a food blogger you are constantly trying new things to inspire your cooking. I seldom spend a lot of time thinking about recipes I have already put on the blog unless I am incorporating them into a new recipe. I think that is why I was so caught so completely by surprise when someone asked me what is my favorite recipe on the blog. I had just never thought about it. Well, I have spent a lot of time thinking about my favorite recipe on the blog today. Here are some of the recipes I make over and over from my blog.
- Chocolate Ricotta Muffins — Muffins are by far my favorite thing to bake. I have more muffin recipes than other kind of recipe in my to try files and a large number of adaptions on the blog. Of all those muffin recipes, Chocolate Ricotta muffins are my absolute favorite.
- My Mom’s Chicken Soup –– This is the only recipe on the blog I haven’t changed a single thing about. I have eaten this soup my whole life and it is still one of the most requested things my mom makes when me and my brothers come home.
- Italian Tomato Sauce — spaghetti sauce is the first thing I ever made from scratch. The recipe came from a 4-H cooking manual. I made that recipe dozens of times when I was a kid. That recipe is long gone. Now I use Mollie Katzen’s recipe for Italian tomato sauce. It’s even better than the 4-H sauce.
- Air Fryer Chicken Wings – I have eaten more chicken wings in the year and a half I have had my air fryer then I have in the entire rest of my life. I usually just pat the wings dry, season them heavily with my favorite Primal Palate spice blend or Magic Mushroom Powder, see #5, and fry them till crispy. I don’t usually toss them with sauce but you certainly can if you want to.
- Magic Mushroom Powder — I love making spice blends because spices can take a boring meal and make it something special without a lot of effort. I usually just make enough a spice blend to last 1 or 2 recipes but Michelle Tam’s Magic Mushroom Powder is different. I make larger batches and keep it around for all my everyday cooking. I use it on everything. Magic Mushroom Powder doesn’t add a lot of flavor to a dish on its own. Instead when you use it, it amplifies the flavors already there.
I have over 650 recipes on the blog so this is just small handful of the recipes I use regularly when I cook.
