A few of my absolute favorite recipes

We’re back from Florida!  Sam and I got home yesterday and we’re slowly getting back into our routine.  I’m going to post about the trip with some pictures soon but in the meantime, I thought I’d post links to some of my favorite recipes that I make again and again.


Oven Fajitas — Budget Bytes

I follow this recipe exactly except I use red, orange or yellow peppers instead of green because I don’t like green peppers.  I also skip the onion powder in the seasoning because I never have any.

Curried Lentil Soup — Epicurious

I use white beans instead of chickpeas, skip the green onions and add extra carrots.  I also usually double this recipe so we have leftovers.  It freezes well.

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup – SouthernFood

I add extra carrots and celery, use dried parsley and mini ravioli or tortellini for the noodles.  If I don’t have seasoned salt, I just use regular salt.  I often use frozen chicken breasts and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew – Allrecipes.com

Sometimes I use sweet potatoes in place of regular potatoes and only 1.5 pounds beef stew meat.  I prefer to cook it on low in the slow cooker for 10-12 hours.

Double Chocolate Layer Cake — Epicurious

The BEST chocolate cake I’ve ever tasted.  I use dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet, vanilla bean paste, canola oil in place of vegetable, whole buttermilk (no substitutions) and I weigh the ingredients.  I also bake in 3-9″pans.  I don’t make the ganache frosting but make a regular chocolate buttercream.
