One of my families favorite meals is Carne Guisada(not at all healthy)...don't make it very often but they will scrape the pan clean (actually wipe it clean with tortilla's).
Thanks,
Dawn

Sogni Siciliani said...

My favorite meal to make and serve is Lasagna. You can make it in advance and have plenty of time to pull together the antipasto, garlic bread, salad and a fabulous desert. It has always been a crowd pleaser!!!

Vintagesquirrel said...

Hi Sweet Paige! Just catching up here...love your last two posts. You are an amazing woman! So glad we're bloggy friends.

pam said...

I made a chicken pot pie for dinner and my daugghter declared that it's her favorite dish that I make. I'm so glad she loves it because it's so easy to make.

TanyaLea said...

Fun contest, Paige!! This is a hard one, as we have several favorites around here. But we really enjoy food with a spicy kick. So a couple favorites are Baja Fish Tacos and Creamy Chicken Enchiladas. Yummm!...makes me hungry just thinking about it! ;)

Jeanneoli said...

What a great giveaway!!! I think my families favorite meal is chicken enchiladas.

Hill said...

How great, Paige!

Well as a young college student, I don't really have a family to cook for.. But I have a hungry boyfriend.. Does that count?!

He loves it when I make cous cous with chicken/peas/grape tomatoes/feta cheese (for me). I think I am a bit better at baking (Boyfriend has a major sweet tooth!) such as oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, brownies, etc.

Maybe a lovely peace such as this would help me try out some new meals :)

Mystica said...

I am Asian and my favorite with the family would be Hot Butter Cuttlefish.

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

What a FUN giveaway!!!

My family's favorite is Spaghetti and Meatballs. The recipe has been passed down the generations on my Mom's side of the family. I remember the day my grandmother taught me how to make it. She was such a special part of my life......and I really miss her and wish she could see her great grandbabies today.

Have a wonderful weekend.... have not heard back from my friend yet....but as soon as I do, I will email you:)

xo,

Lisa

The Nester said...

I have wanted 38 of these dishes for like 4 years. Lusting after them. I would make a delish beef stew--mushroom the kind Pioneer Woman taught us how to make!

Steph said...

Hmmm let's see. My family's favorite is probably our staple "holiday" meal...ham, mashed potatoes, scalloped corn, crescent rolls, green bean casserole, our holiday punch and PIE. Mmmm making me hungry as we speak:) Great give-away. Have a blessed weekend Paige.

PS~Erin said...

How fun! I just ruined our pot by (over) steaming tamales. Maybe I don't deserve something so nice! Ha!

My family's favorite are spaghetti, breakfast for dinner, and my daughter has just started loving rice, so I've been experimenting with recipes for her... Never too much "spice" as she's got a sensitive mouth.

Thanks for the giveaway opp!

thekellyhouse said...

Hey Paige! After reading through everyone's favorites, I can't believe there weren't about 10 of these, but our family (kids') favorite by far is Poppy Seed Chicken. I always double the recipe & it's always a goner!! I always make a light version. Yum!!

Sydney K.

Rebecca said...

how fun!
our favorite is pesto with crusty bread and something chocolate for dessert.
have a lovely weekend!

shannon said...

Hi paige! My family loves it when I make my Thai Chicken Coconut soup. It's a light version of the traditional, I used to live in Seattle where soups were a comfort from the rain, now I live in Arizona where I try to get away with lighter brothier versions of my old standbys!!

tara said...

uh oh this might be out of my league...lol! My favorite meal to cook is enchilada;s but being that I work a lot I should learn more crock pot recipes, I have one in the cuppard...I've never used it..see this is out of my league! :) Happy Friday!

Donna said...

What a great giveaway! I would say my chicken and roasted veggies. It's amazing the kiddos will actually eat their veggies this way. Works for me!!
Have a great day!!

Jen said...

I would have to say our family favorite is Spaghetti with meat sauce.

My family...I mean me...well
I will say lobster ravioli, but when I saw
the words Creme Brulee (be it the color of the dish) it brought to mind my whole family
and really we would love Creme Brulee for any given meal! Oh my!

Love it that you are in a position to post this kind of cool stuff.
I do believe that now that I have completely coveted this dish (God help me!) that this girly is going to have to save and get her one of these babies! Love it my friend, I do!

homebody0404 said...

Tacos with flour tortillas are always a favorite. I'm not allowed to go a week without making them!! Southern Living's King Ranch Chicken Casserole is also a must.

Dawn Gahan said...

I have a family rich in nicknames and, well, adding drama to about everything we do . . . . When my sister and I were in our early teens and spending the night at our Nana and PapPap's, one of us was nauseaus (for what reason I can't remember), and my dear Nana, always one to remedy a "situation" with food, offered up a casserole she had made earlier that day, assuring that it was easy on the stomach and would cure the nausea. And, of course, it was as good as any prescription medicine.

To this day, we have callled it "Nana's Easy-Settlin' No-More-Quesy Chicken Noodle Casserole." I've shared the recipe with many, and always my recipe card bears this as the name.

And I always think of my Nana and PapPap whenever I share the recipe or make it for my own family.

Georgia's blog said...

My hubbies favorite is homemade veggie pizza!!! It's delish!!!

Chicken soup. Or, basically anything warm with LOTS of flavor. The guys like veggies, too!

Gina said...

Hi! My girls love my home made chocolate chip cookies. Brown sugar, lots of butter and chocolate all melted together! But my hubby likes my roasted pork, black beans and yuca ... my cuban history he feel in love with! Don't forget the red wine. Salud!

Anonymous said...

Hey Paige! Love this idea. Love reading all the posts with all the yummy sounding recipes! I don't really cook but my fav(that hubby cooks and serves up so deliciously)is Fiery shrimp with a thinly sliced warm baguette! YUMMY!

My family loves "our favorite chili" made with venison burger. made it just last sunday and eric brought 4 of his buddies in to eat it. they all had 3 bowls and texted him the next day that it was the best chili they ever had. makes me happy because i am not the best cook but keep trying. thanks sweetie!!

Holly said...

I got a croke pot for Christmas so my boyfriend loves anything I can throw in there. The pot roast has been amazing and I think it's our "go-to" special occasion food. I'm half-way expecting a marriage proposal from him the next time I make it!

Gale said...

my family favorite is Baked Spaghetti (or as the 4 baby grands say "Puh-Sketti"). There is nothing special, but I make it with a whole lotta love! Gale

Sam said...

Team Houston said...

We love anything my husband cooks for us ;)

Fun! Thanks,

Diane said...

We found this delicious olive bread at Farmers Market, with big, plump Kalamata olives throughout. On a camping trip with my husband and two toddlers, we realized we had run out of most of our breakfast supplies, except for enough to make French toast with the olive bread. It seemed so strange to put maple syrup on olives, but it came out amazingly and surprisingly delicious (and no, I wasn't pregnant)! It is now a family Sunday favorite, and it will always instill the wonderful family memories of camping, togetherness, and culinary adventure! :-)

Danielle said...

One of our all time favorite meals is Veggie Orzo soup with squash, zucchini, spinach and tomatoes...sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top and serve with toasted pita. OH MY! :)

paperhill said...

i love to try new things but one of our favorites is Giada's pasta with, sausage, mushrooms & peas!

Jill said...

My family loves lasagna...and I love it because it usually means there are leftovers!
Cheers!
Jill
