Friday Favorites: Recipes to Try

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

I don’t usually post more than once a day (well, unless I feel like it!) but my good friend Hillary at The Other Mama is starting a carnival this week and I want to support her! 

With all the once-a-month cooking craziness, I’ve been able to try many a new recipe and found some hits! I wanted to share these awesome recipes with you in case you’re wondering what to cook this weekend.

I am in love with the pizza pockets, whole wheat hamburger buns, apricot breakfast bars, and sloppy joes–all from Heavenly Homemakers. Laura is obviously a genius in the kitchen AND makes everything from scratch (she even grinds her own wheat).

The most amazing chicken stock batch yet!

Jo-Lynne’s tutorial for making homemade chicken stock has helped push me to do it. It’s a great way to make use of a whole chicken. I enjoy having the shredded chicken meat in the fridge for pizza (I love the crust recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks), casseroles, and chicken salad. (Or more Chicken Burgers. MMMM.)

I haven’t tried this yet, but I keep having fantasies of eating Kate’s Spinach and Artichoke Dip Casserole for dinner. (In case I haven’t mentioned it, Mr. V does not like cooked spinach, artichoke hearts, mayo, or sour cream. Wahhhh.) Maybe along with the Beet & Heat Salad I made for dinner last night (that he refused to eat). Seriously, who wants to come over so I can make this??!

Have you cooked something delicious lately you’d like to share? Leave me a link or recipe in the comments! And make sure to visit The Other Mama for more Friday Favorites.

  1. #1- I heart you.
    #2- wheat grinding? WOW!
    #3- pizza pockets and chicken pizza- now you are talking my pizza language!
    Love all those recipes! Thanks for taking the work out of it for me. I'll tell you which one I try this weekend!

  2. sounds fabulous! i have about 10 qts of chicken stock in my fridge which i need to freeze, but have no room in my freezer!

  3. @Heather–You can boil down chicken stock to concentrate it and then freeze it in ice cube trays. Then I think you use it like chick bouillon, combining it and water. Worth a try!

  4. Wow-I'm lookin' for a new pizza dough recipe since my husband suddenly informed me he's been dissatisfied with mine and never told me. 🙂 Thanks! I'll be back!

  5. Uh, isn't it easier to pop a hot pocket in the microwave? Just teasing. I would NEVER do that. 🙂
    I wish I had a chance to explore the cullinary world beyond making chilli and spaghetti. Or could remember to take things out of the freezer more than 10 minutes before we need to eat dinner… lol
