Your favorite recipe from an online site

There are many wonderful food sites out there , with many wonderful recipes. I have
printed out so many recipes that I have a virtual 1,000 page book. One of my favorites that I love and make quite often is, Mexican Bean Salad. The best.

  1. From this very website: Buffalo Chicken Tenders with Bleu Cheese Coleslaw. And, since I've resurrected by slow cooker, I'm currently working my way through a website called A Year of Crockpotting. The BBQ pulled pork recipe was very very good -- not "gourmet", mind you, but very satisfying for something that takes (literaly) less than 5 minutes to prep. That's my new "go-to" dish to feed a crowd or take when I'm asked to bring a hot dish.

      Thanks for the great tip, Patti - that website is great! Just heading back to work tomorrow after a 2 month maternity leave - these recipes are going to be lifesavers for my fam and me! Much appreciated. :o)

      Here are my online favs:

      Ina Gartin's gruyere mac & cheese
      George Duran's guiltless oven baked chicken fingers
      Tres Leches cake

      And from this website, which makes a mean Buffalo chicken wing pizza!

        You read my mind! I was planning to Google "Buffalo wing pizza" today to see how to make it at home. There was even a coupon in today's paper for a free bottle of Frank's hot sauce. Fate!! Thanks.

        1. re: Channa

          Swanky: the only edit I've make to the crockpot recipies is to saute the onions before I put them in the pot. I am an onion freak, and usually more than double the amount in any given recipe. Somehow they still taste too undercooked if I don't saute them first. The other recipe I loved was for the Chicken Mahkani (Indian Butter Chicken). I doubled it, and my husband loved it as well. We ate it all week. Served with Jasmine coconut rice -- usual prep for the rice, but add a can of coconut milk to the broth/liquid use use. I am working my way through the website -- yum. Make sure you read her tips, though. I always thought that if were going to be out of the house for more than 10 hours, and the directions called for 10 hours on low, then that's what I would do. Not so. Her advice is to set the slow cooker for the SHORTER amount of time. That way, if you are gone longer, the pot will just drop down to warm. If it needs more cooking when you get home, just pump it up to high for 45 minutes while you prep everything else. It really prevents over-cooking.

          Channa: I snarfed up that coupon too!

          1. re: PattiCakes

            Was the coupon in the usual coupon inserts that come with the Sunday paper? I have 2 inserts with coupons and I didn't see it...thanks!

            1. re: Val

              Yes, there was a Procter and Gamble insert and 2 others. The Frank's advert was in the one with Red Lobster on the cover.

              1. re: Channa

                Okay, thank you so much, Channa...will check it out...I still have the Sunday paper.

          2. re: Channa

            Love when that stuff happens! Yay free Frank's sauce! Hope you enjoy the pizza as much as I did. :o)

      2. I make Giada's marinara recipe from the Food Network website regularly and keep it in the freezer. It is absolutely delicious.
        I always add red pepper flakes and sometimes add red, yellow, or orange peppers when I find them on sale. I like to read a lot of reviews of recipes and the Food Network site is good that way.
        My son makes a sandwich regularly he found here at Chowhound. It is a grilled cheese ham sandwich with caramelized onions and is delicious and easy.

              I clicked on the link and got "Sorry, we can't find that page."

              Doesn't fair use allow exact repetition so long as the complete reference is accurately cited?

            2. On recipezaar, look for "Monastery Lentils". They are easy and very tasty. I sometimes omit the cheese depending on what I'm serving it with. Also makes a great soup if you puree 1/2 the lentils and add some chix. stock. adam
