A Few of My Favorite Recipe Blogs

Back in August I wrote two posts about food and organizing my pantry. I haven't given up on organizing and stocking my pantry. I've worked my list and checked it twice. I've thought about it day and night. I've test shopped BJ's against my favorite grocery store (more on that another day). I've even stood and stared at my pantry trying to decide what to do.

One of the steps I have accomplished was to sort through the recipes I have collected in my Recipe Manager to see where our favorite recipes come from. I discovered there are three blogs that have contributed quite a few recipes to my collection. Here they are in no particular order.

A Fridge Full of Food...and Nothing to Eat by Glenna Muse
Glenna has lots of yummy recipes. Our favorite is her All Day Spaghetti 3-Meat Sauce. You don't need to have a back up jar of Prego or Ragu in your cupboard when you have a bag of this sauce in your freezer.
She recently posted a recipe for Slow Cooker Meat Sauce that is equally delicious. However, the sauce cooks overnight and the delicious smell of it permeated my dreams and woke me up. I had to get out of bed and turn off the sauce so I could sleep. Next time I'll make it and let it cook all day. A couple other favorites from her site are Quick & Easy Chicken Enchiladas and Guinness Irish Stew with Roasted Garlic/Rosemary Dumplings.

Big Red Kitchen
Next up is Big Red Kitchen. I found one of our decadent breakfast recipes: Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. These are a yummy way to start a weekend breakfast.
Recently she posted a recipe for Homemade SpaghettiOs with Mini Meatballs. Mr. E loves his "balls" (his name for the meal). The recipe made 10 batches and I believe he's about ready for another batch to be made. Grampa Boo wants to try some this time.

We like her Crockpot Grinders on Football Sundays. I often make a batch of Garlic Ranch Pretzels to tuck into my lunch box. Her Wassail Punch has earned a spot on our holiday menus. And, once I get my freezer downstairs I intend to have a Freezer Meal Making Party, but for now her Ranch Chicken makes an appearance on our dinner plate frequently.

Cinnamon Girl Recipes
Cinnamon Girl Recipes has a couple of our favorite dinner recipes. Hubby and I love her Salisbury Steaks in French Onion Sauce. This is a great comfort meal.
My son, who is not a meatloaf fan, cannot pass up her Italian Meatloaf. When I make this for a family dinner I may have to start making two meatloaves just to have leftovers! This is the best meatloaf ever! My DIL and I are soup lovers and I often make her Loaded Baked Potato Soup for us. It's a great soup on a chilly night. We also like her Peanut Butter Cups for dessert. I haven't tried the Salted Caramel Cups yet, but I plan to do that soon.

So, there you have it. A few of my favorite recipe blogs and some yummy recipes for you to try. If you stop by any of these blogs, please tell them I sent you. I'm sure they would love to hear from you.

What are some of your favorite recipe blogs?

Paula what a wonderful round up of recipes here. I will have to check out some of the other blogger's recipes that you have mentioned, so much good food! Thank you for including me and I love the picture of your little Mr. E with the Spaghetti-os. It is time for another batch here in our house too! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

So, so sorry I didn't get over here sooner to say thank-you! Your e-mail was buried and I just dug it out. I love those salisbury steaks too! And the meatloaf. I will probably be revisiting them on my blog as I am digging into all my family's favorite winter comforts. Thank-you so much for making my recipes and for the post! Have a great weekend!
