This week's Listicles topic is 10 foods. You can spin it any way that you like. Me, I'm choosing to go with ten foods I've made. That way, I can be sure to share pictures with you. :)
tortiere for Christmas morning. Rich did the filling but I did the top. I had dough left over so I figured I'd get creative. And it came out pretty good, if I do say so myself.
Well.... it looks like I don't have as many pictures of the foods that I've made as I thought I did. So the rest will just have to be pictureless.
4. . Crock-pot lasagna. This is an old favorite of mine, one that I came up with one day when I was trying to figure out what to make in my crock-pot. I find it a lot easier than traditional oven-baked lasagna, and I usually make my own sauce to go with it. it's something that's raved about fairly regularly.
5. Corn souffle. I got this recipe from my step-mom, who got it, I believe, from my aunt. It's made with creamed corn, egg, cornbread and sour cream. Seeing the cornbread in it, my step-mom thought it would be something you'd cut like bread to eat. Instead, it's something that you scoop with a spoon. It's also a family favorite that I bring to many gatherings.
6. Snickerdoodles. These are far and away my favorite cookies to make. I just love the mix of cinnamon and sugar on top. And they're fairly easy to make as well.
7. Pumpkin Cake - This is another recipe that I am often asked to bring to holiday dinners. I usually make it a two layer cake with cream cheese frosting in the center. And it usually disappears before the guests all leave.
8. Banana Bread. We have a habit of letting bananas go uneaten in my house, which means I (semi-regularly) get to make banana bread out of it. I usually go with the nutsless variety, because Rich isn't too big on them, but I enjoy it both ways.
9. Night Night Cookies - This is another recipe I got from my step-mom. I still remember making them with her when I was in high school, having them ready to go in the morning. I also remember a debacle when I tried to make them on my own the first time and didn't beat it long enough. Instead of being dollops of cookie, it was a flat, yucky mess. I've learned my lesson since then.
10. Grilled cheese sandwiches. Yes, it's simple. But I love to watch the bread brown on the skillet while the cheese gets nice and gooey inside. It's one of my comfort foods, though I don't make it as often as I used to.
