What's Your Favorite Recipe?

Jean TellerWhen cooler weather hits, many of us cook. I have a few favorite recipes, and this time of year is when they once again make an appearance in my kitchen.

Plus there is a stack of cookbooks on my desk, just waiting for me to look at them, try a recipe or two and review them for you (and me). I particularly am looking forward to checking out The Complete Slow Cooker Cookbook, Mrs. Rowes Little Book of Southern Pies, and The Big Sur Bakery Cookbook. Stay tuned for those reviews.

What’s your favorite cookbook this time of year? What’s the best recipe for autumn’s crisp temps? We'd like to hear what's creating that wonderful aroma in your kitchen, what dishes appear on your dinner table and which foods your family loves. Let us know in the comments section below. Who knows? We just might publish a few of them in a future Recipe Box!

Cookbooks to review!

Hi, Brenda and Vickie, thanks for stopping by! Brenda, the soup and casserole recipes sound terrific! And Vickie, we love chili around here. Any chance we could get the recipes for Krinky Casserole and chili? I've posted one of my favorites, Beef Stroganoff (made in the slow cooker) over at the Grit Forums. We'd love to see more recipes! http://www.grit.com/forums/forum.aspx?boardid=214&g=posts&t=6442451261

Jean, I would say my favorite fall recipes would be apple pie, onion rings (fried from big sweet onions), and chili. We need to have comfort food to warm us up here in Michigan! It is already Frigid but not dry. vickie

Fall is a great time of the year for me to really get into cooking (it's too hot to cook in the summertime). There's just something about the weather cooling off that gets me in the mood to cook more and try new recipes. I have a tendency to go to my Campbell's Soup cookbook more often than any other cookbook (and I have a lot). I like to make skillet casseroles with my cooking soups. Lately I've been getting some delicious and easy recipes from our Good Things to Eat magazine. Two of my favorite recipes to make when the temperatures start to drop is Captain's Soup (a recipe my mom got from a lady we met on vacation many years ago)and Krinky Casserole (a recipe Mom made quite often when I was growing up -- it makes me feel loved!). I associate cooking with warm and happy memories.
