  45. nancy

    I’ve been following for awhile now.

    Mel’s Kitchen has some nice recipes.

  46. I have been following your blog for a while now also.
    My fav dinner recipe: (hopefully your not vegan)
    1 lb Ground Turkey or HBurger
    1 cup onions/belle pepper mix-fresh is best
    1 Egg
    1 cup old fashioned oatmeal.
    Pepper to your liking for seasoning
    Muffing Tin
    Cook: 45mins-An Hour
    Let turkey or Hburger set out at room temp for about an hour (this makes the burger cook faster and more through)
    Mix Burger,onions,egg,oatmeal in a large bowl, kneading with your hands until mixed well.
    Roll into balls a little bit smaller than a muffin cup, place in un-greased un-spraged muffin tin.

    Sprinkle with pepper.
    at approx 20 mins top with katchup, put back in oven.
    Cook for remaining 25 mins or until done- due to ovens all being different and all.

    ……….. Tada! Meatloaf muffins, individual size and fun to eat!
    I usually add fresh steamed beans or baked beans πŸ™‚
    Garlic toast too maybe?

  47. Your sewing kit is wonderful! (I’m giving one away too!) And the extras are fab, I think I am one of the last people on the planet who has not tried aurifil yet! LOL.
    This is one of my absolute favourite recipes ever!
    great with chicken, pork and turkey and nice too with some dark cabbage and peas πŸ™‚ YUMMY!

    How about this recipe for a quinoa vegetable salad? Could be great with grilled chicken or steak, london broil or whatever your favorite thing to throw on the grill is (I’m a vegetarian so I would skip the meat, and go for a veggie burger, but that’s me).

  88. Becky Greene

    I am enjoying the Zakka Style Sew Along so much!!!!! You sewing kit is beautiful and would be a wonderful reminder of the fun I have had in this project.

    I absolutely love these rolls – I don’t even want to think about the calories, but every one of them is worth it! Just remember that 1/2 cup does not equal an 8 oz container – actually put the sour cream in a measuring cup or you will use too much.

  89. Amy

    Unfortunately I am a terrible cook so I cannot send you a great recipe – I recommend going out for dinner! :0)

  90. Becky Greene

    I am a very happy follower of your blog.

  100. Sharon

    Just go to Six Sisters Stuff — you’ll find plenty to whet your appetite! Thanks for the giveaway.

  101. This is from my blog, and it is totally one of my favorites. Penne with creamy tomato and chipotle sauce. Just add a side vegetable and it is dinner. (sorry, I don’t mean for this to be a blatant plug, I just really like this dinner recipe, which is why I wrote about it…)

  102. Jo

    I recommend learning to make a variety of baked pasta dishes- I recommend tomato sauce with ground turkey and cheese over top, or a bechamel sauce with chicken and a cheesy crust!

  103. I have a simple one for you. Cook 1 lb hamburger. Add 1 can cream of mushroom soup and a small can of chopped green chiles. Layer this with corn tortillas and your favorite sharp cheese (several layers) and bake at 350 for at least 30 minutes, or until the internal temp is 160. I sounds strange, but I like the combo of flavors. Enjoy!

  104. Elizabeth j

    Love the sewing kit!
    Anything by pioneer woman… Chicken parm, potatoes au gratin, yummy!

  105. Ellen Ban

    Hi Lindsey! It seems like a long time since I’ve seen you! A good easy dinner is Trader Joe’s frozen breaded eggplant baked with mozzarella, spinach and tomato sauce. We freeze the leftovers and make Eggplant Subs. Love your sewing kit!

  106. What a gorgeous collection of goodies – love your sewing kit!

    This recipe is great although it’s always my husband who makes it, not me, so I don’t know how easy/difficult it is to make. But it’s definitely delicious to eat!

  119. Elizabeth

    Thanks so much for the great giveaway!
    I make a great side dish (goes well with any protein) of brown rice with spinach and feta. Cook the brown rice (or white) as usual. In a saute pan, saute some chopped onion, add lemon juice and oregano. Lightly wilt some fresh spinach (if you want to add mushrooms or sundried tomatoes, add them before the spinach). Add to the rice adn lighly mix. Add feta to the mix and allow the feta to warm and soften a bit – and serve!

  120. Buy the America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook from Amazon. I haven’t found a bad recipe in there yet!

    Love your giveaway pack!!

    My favorite summer recipe is Lemon Pasta Salad: Take some cooked pasta (Penne or Farfalle), mix it with fresh-squezed lemon juice, sour cream, salt an pepper. You can add a grilled chicken breast with herbs (e.g. rosemary and thyme). Delicious, refreshing and can be made with leftover pasta and stored in the fridge 1-2 days until you need it.

  168. Kay

    Our favourite family meal is carbonara pasta. Great giveaway, thankyou.

  169. My latest ‘go-to’ recipe: Taco Tuesday followed by Taco-Soup-Saturday
    Make a double batch of taco meat. Eat half of it on Taco Tuesday. The other half gets tossed into a pot with two cans of tomatoes, one cup of salsa, and 32oz of beef broth. Simmer it until heated through. Top soup with sour cream or gaucamole, shredded cheese, olives, cilantro, salsa, jalapenos, or whatever you like on your tacos. Serve with tortilla chips crushed on top as sprinkels or on the side… Oh Yeah baby! I’m a regular follower!

We enjoy that dinner often…actually…now that I say that..I kind of want it tonight! LOL!

  189. Elnora

    Thanks for the chance at your generous giveaway! One of my favorite easy dinners is to split a loaf of nice, crusty bread lengthwise, then make a “pizza” on it with these ingredients: pesto, either sundried tomatoes packed in oil or cherry tomatoes (roasted in the oven, if I have time), and a sprinkling of feta cheese. Bake or broil ’til warm. Yummy!

    I love pretty much everything from 101 Cookbooks, but especially this recipe:
    It’s a crowd pleaser (and my 2 year old devours it!)

  204. Thanks for the giveaway! I don’t think I’m much help on the recipe front because my husband is the cook in my family.

  205. Right now I’m a llittle obsessed with Joy The Baker’s Salted Caramel Cheesecake Pie. Yum!!

  206. And I’m already a follower.

  207. Angie

    This is an awesome giveaway! My favorite recipe is an english muffin with one over-easy egg, sausage, swiss cheese, spinach, and half an avocado. Best lunch ever, and easy, too.

  208. Margaret

    My husband does most of the dinner cooking, and he never uses a recipe, so I am no help on that. Sorry. I’ll have to read through the comments–maybe i will be inspired to cook dinner one of these days.

  209. So cute! For an easy dinner:
    2 baked/broiled/grilled chicken breasts, cubed
    2 cups cooked rice
    1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 can corn

    Mix it all together. Add your favorite toppings (salsa, guacamole, sour cream). Eat it as is, or in a tortilla as a wrap. Also great with chopped Romaine. I try to keep this in the fridge all summer long, quick easy lunches!

  210. I WISH I had a great recipe for you, that would mean I knew one…I hate cooking. lol
    This is a lovely giveaway – very generous!

    Cheesy Pecan Cranberry Crisps
    40-50 crisps out of one batch

    2 cups Asiago cheese, shredded (white, creamy, pungent odor)
    1 cup butter
    Dash of cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 cups flour
    1 1/2 cup pecans, chopped & toasted
    3/4 cup dried cranberries

    Cream the cheese & butter until thoroughly mixed. In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder & cayenne pepper. Mix into butter/cheese mixture until smooth. Add chopped pecans & cranberries. Form into a log & wrap in plastic wrap – let rest in refrigerator for 1 hour. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unwrap the dough & slice into 1/3 rounds & place on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.

  218. Oooh, so cute! I love gray and yellow together! One of my favorite recipes is Chicken flautas: yum!

  219. Not exactly a meal, but these cookies are to die for πŸ™‚

  220. My fave recipe is something i made up. Not much cooking (kinda a semi homemade a la Sandra Lee). Its a Buffalo chicken salad. What you need – lettuce or bagged salad, a serving of chicken nuggets per person (I use frozen tyson), franks hot sauce and ranch or blue cheese dressing. Cook the chicken, chop it up and toss it in about a tsp of the hot sauce (more or less to taste). Put it on the salad, drizzle with dressing and Chow down!! This is about 300 Cals. And totally filling and yummy. Add bacon or blue cheese or what ever. It’s super easy and super yummy. πŸ™‚

  221. I always find that coming up with new menus the toughest part of cooking. Anything we can BBQ is fabulous for me.

    Well I have been without a kitchen since Easter (remodeling in progress). Right now I am so tired of eating out. We live at the coast and love shrimp sautΓ©ed with a little olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and red pepper flakes. I then toss all of it (juices and all) with some cooked linguine. It’s wonderful and really fast. Thanks for participating with a great giveaway.

Our family’s favourite dinner is steamboat- a pot of soup over fire (can be gas or charcoal) and we throw in meat, fish, vegetables, tofu to be cooked in the soup. then we will fish out the items, dip in sauce (soy sauce, chilli sauce) and into our mouths LOL. Hope you can come up with something the family enjoys.

  257. Teresa

    super useful!
    my favorite soup is roasted tomato soup with a broiled cheddar cover: absolutely worth it

  258. We discovered it’s super easy to make a sorta knock-off pad thai: we sautee some fresh garlic, onion, bell pepper, carrot, and celery, then add some fish sauce, soy sauce, lime juice and rice wine vinegar (all were available for reasonable prices at the grocery store), and sprinkle in some black pepper, ginger, and a fair amount of basil. When that is as cooked as we want it, we add in some shredded chicken (I usually bake it, with just a hint of lime, basil, garlic powder, black pepper, and ginger sprinkled on top) just so it can get coated in the sauce. I also chop up a handful of roasted unsalted peanuts fairly fine (while the other stuff is sauteeing) and toss those in at the end. You could add bean sprouts too if you wanted(they are in cans in the Asian food aisle), and if it seems too thin, you can add a teaspoon or two of cornstarch. Anyway, it’s pretty forgiving and easy to adapt-we seriously don’t measure anything. My husband tops his off with Sriracha hot sauce, also from the grocery store! Anyway, nothing about this “recipe” is hard-just a matter of knowing what to combine, and we sure like it!

  259. sewlindaann

    Not good with the dinner ideas. Lately it’s been frozen meals from Trader Joes (Love the Orange Chicken and Tofu/Eamame nuggets and Bird Nests). My son is on a meatball sub kick, so I’m going to make a batch. Otherwise he’s all about mac and cheese.

    I do also in need for the dinner ideas (all every meals to get my twins to eat). Taco mix from trader joe (if you have one in area) follow the package, I think they make a very good and interesting taco than from other dry mix found in grocery stores.

  263. This is great for summer: Can of black eyes beans, can of shopeye corn (drain and rinse both), two bell peppers, two tomatoes, couple of spring onions. Cut into small pieces and mix together. Add italian dressing, salt and pepper to tase. Sometimes I add a little vinegar if the dressing does not have enough kick in it. Makes for a great sals to put in wraps or with chips or in salads. joonatan15 at yahoodotcom

    To busy sewing and entering giveaways to cook

  265. Love your blog, I’m a new follower as well. πŸ™‚

  266. What an excellent prize.
    One of my favorite dinners:
    it gets the kids to eat their veggies, and the leftover is awesome over pasta.

  267. Love it! I don’t have a link to one of my easiest and healthy dinner choices but it’s super simple. Dump salsa on uncooked chicken tenders add some sort of cheese on top of each one, pop in the oven. I never remember at what temp or how long but I think it’s around 400 and I just periodically check the chicken. Makes great taco leftovers!

  268. I’ve also been a follower for awhile!

My picky eater kids even like it!!!

    I have a chicken recipe that is super easy and good. Marinate the chicken in Italian dressing, couple hours overnight it doesn’t matter. Then take out of the dressing and put in baking dish put pepper jack cheese on top and bake 350 for 45-50 minutes. flavorful and simple.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  302. Sara

    Hmm, I’m not much for recipes; I generally cook really simply, from whole ingredients without a lot of steps or spices. One of my favorite things to do is take a can of salmon (the best is Red Alaskan, the Deming’s brand), and mix it up in a bowl with 3/4 of a sleeve of crackers, a free-range egg, about a tablespoon or so of flour, some of the salmon juice/water stuff, and a diced onion (plus whatever else you want; dill, rosemary, whatever). Then make it into patties and fry them in canola oil. Tasty.

  303. Love it! Thanks so much!!!

  308. What a nice giveaway! I’m curious about this zakka thing I keep seeing mentioned (but never seem to see defined). I’ve got the book in my wishlist, but can’t justify buying it right now. One day, one day.

    Anyway, favourite recipe… I can’t think of anything right now. I’ve got lots of favourites, but my dinner tonight was a miserable failure and all I can think of right now is how disappointing it was.

  309. Sydnie

    Oh, so cute!! Love it. (Following you now on Google Reader!)

    One of my favorite things (not that I’m must of a cook at all) is to throw a pork roast in the crock pot with a can of soda… Coke, Diet Coke, Root Beer, whatever. Cook it all day, then shred it. Throw it in a saucepan with some BBQ sauce, or saute some of it with some diced roasted chilies & spices to make carnitas.

  310. Christie

    Thanks this looks really amazing! Can’t wait to try some of yoru favorite flowerhead pins

  311. I love a char grilled veg & chicken salad with fresh basil & fetta. Basically BBQ or roast some veg – zucchini, eggplant, onion, tomatoe, peppers etc that have been tossed in olive oil, poach your chicken breasts, when cooked combine it all with some balsamic vinegar and crushed garlic, crumbled fetta and torn basil leaves.

  312. I have been following for a while!

  313. Emily C

    Grilled chicken with mashed potatoes and peas. you can put bbq sauce, sweat and sour, whatever you like on the chicken.

  328. Pamela Dungar

    I love the giveaway, as for dinner anything Ina Garten makes is good. My go to is chicken fillet marinated in half and half mayo and tomato ketchup fdor at least 2 hour then oven bake for around 30 minutes, depends on the size, serve with baked potato and broccoli or salad. Leftover slice into chilli mayo and into a flat bread with chopped salad.

  329. Sarah N

    Lovely giveaway πŸ™‚ I don’t really follow recipes, once I get a favourite dish if I go back to the recipe I find I have actually changed about half of it and it probably tastes nothing like it should do anymore!

  330. I’m following by email. Mmm, one of my favorites as a kid was mΓΌesli. You make oatmeal (about 6 servings worth of plain), cool it, and mix it with a big container of yogurt, your favorite fresh fruit and maybe raisins and nuts if you like them. A little garlic bread toast is good with it.

  331. I have a short, weird sounding, recipe for chicken. You take a casserole type dish and put your chicken in it until the bottom is covered and cover the chicken with equal parts ketchup and milk. Not submerge them, but there should be enough of the mixture to cover the bottom of the dish and coat the chicken. It turns into this tender barbeque tasting good stuff.

  332. This is gorgeous! I don’t have a link to my favourite recipe, but I love roast pumpkin and quinoa salad, which is a recipe I got while doing the 12wbt – you cook the roast pumpkin with a little cracked pepper, boil the quinoa in vegetable stock and then add them together with some baby spinach leaves – top with a dressing made of balsamic vinegar and lemon juice – absolute yum! (and very good for you too!)

  333. I’m now following your blog too πŸ™‚

    Thank you! I love Turkey Black Bean Chili!
    Cook ground turkey until no longer pink
    add 1/2 c. chopped onion, 1/2 tbsp Cumin, salt, 1 tbsp Chili powder cook 2 mins
    Add 1 can of Chicken broth and 2 cans of Rotel (we recently started using the chili fixin ones) cook 2 mins
    Add 1 can dark red kidney beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can hominey (original recipe calls for corn)
    Bring to a boil, reduce heat cook for 10 mins.
    Serve w cheese and sour cream if you like.

    Quick and easy!

  337. kari

    Marinate some fresh shrimp in margarita mix. dust with taco seasoning before putting on the grill. you now have the makings for shrimp tacos. We usually have diced tomatoes from the garden, lettuce, salsa and homemade guacamole. With these we leave the cheese off – not so good with shrimp. The sugar in the margarita mix caramelizes on the shrimp and its perfect. Enjoy

  338. Mhairi

    I love this recipe. Make a double batch and freeze. They can be eaten cold, hot, plain with any sauce you like and I always add extra herbs to mine.
    Google and Wikipedia will help to sort out the ingredients that are region specific.

    For a quick yummy dinner I use pilsbury crescent rolls and I roll them up with swiss cheese, ham slices and crushed pineapple and cook according to crescent roll directions. I use the liquid from the pineapple plus a TBSP or two of brown seeded mustard and a couple tablespoons of the crushed pineapple then I heat it in a sauce pot til warm and bubbly . I serve it with the cooked crescent rolls as a dip for them πŸ™‚

  359. Lisa Conant

    Heat and the shred of Tyson cooked pork and au jus (meat dept) in a bowl, add a can of seasoned black beans (undrained) and 2 tablespoons of Goya sofrito ( Spanish tomato sauce, found in the Spanish foods section of the store…affordable) and mix them all together. Serve over cooked egg noodles. Delicious Cuban dinner in 15 minutes for less than $10!!

    Here is a link to my recipe for ham in a crock pot. It is omg amazing. You should try it for sure. Thank you for the chance to win.

    What a darling sewing kit! I am trying to learn how to sew (again) as I have a baby coming in the Fall and I’d love to try to make some things for him. πŸ™‚

  370. You can find great recipes on The Pioneer Woman’s website and her Tasty Kitchen one, too. Thanks so much for doing this giveaway! πŸ™‚

  371. I love rosemary and lemon chicken with red potatoes and button mushrooms. πŸ™‚

  372. Once the weather starts warming up, we like to have marinated chicken and tofu salad for summertime dinners. Give it a try! I wrote up the recipe on my blog here:

  373. Tanya

    Thanks for the chance to win. I like to BBQ in summer so house isn’t heated up. Marinate chicken and cut up greenpepers, onions, and pineapple and do kabobs on grill.

  374. Kim Ratajczyk

    Sheperd’s pie. any recipe will do.

  375. Jodi R

    I don’t really have a favourite online recipe that I can think of but maybe you could try Chicken Schnitzel wraps with Avocado, sour cream and sweet chilli sauce. Simple and can be varied to your taste with extra salad or cheese. Very yummy though.

  376. this is a whole wheat bread/roll recipe, so not dinner, but a dinner go-along and you can make it a roll up sort of thing with cheese and pepperoni/salami/ham inside similar to a cinnamon roll or bread.

  377. That’s such a lovely giveaway! I don’t often use recipes; my go to dinner for summer is to steam vegetables and serve them with quinoa or couscous, dressed with lemon juice and fresh mint!

  378. Such a beautiful package and full of things I can’t get locally – I’d love to try out the cosmo floss and aurifil! At the moment, we make lots of ‘nuggets’ – the kids will eat anything that’s been breaded and plan-fried – veal, chicken, fish, etc.

    HAHAha, you think I can cook… I do have 1 tip thats amazing. If you add silken tofu to your ground meat (for patties or meat loaf), it makes everything so much moister. And you don’t need to add the egg

  380. Leo

    One of my favourites: you will have to search for an English recipe .. or ask me again in a few days …

  381. elflyn

  387. Ana

    So cute! Thanks for the opportunity!

  388. Margaret R

    My favorite recipe that is my go-to when I am stuck for something is Macaroni and Tomatoes. You just cook your macaroni and then add one large can of tomatoe juice about half a cup of sugar some salt and pepper and half a stick of buter. Cook until heated through. My family loves it.

    Thanks for participating in the giveaway! I love the Zakka style book and everything inside! My husband does all the cooking, but I must say, I love breakfast for dinner! (Just an idea, I’d feel remiss if I didn’t at least address your comment request!) Thanks again, and Happy Friday!

  391. Ann

    I need a sewing kit! Dinner – we eat a lot of bean and rice burritos. Quick and kids can customize with cheese, lettuce, salsa, etc…

  392. DebbieKL

    Very cute! I’m thinking of making portobello burgers tonight – simple just put in foil with gills up and throw on the grill! When they’re nice and juicy they’re all done! Thanks for the giveaway!

    Wonderful giveaway prize!!! My fingers are crossed! I don’t really have a link, but one of our favorite quick and easy dinners is just good old Tater Tot Casserole– I make mine with cheddar cheese and mushroom soup. I made it for a family reunion last year and everyone was raving about it— wanting the recipe. I thought everyone knew about it– it used to be very common, but I guess that was quite a few years ago.. πŸ™‚

  396. I love tomato salad- chopped plum and cherry tomatoes, roasted chunks of chorizo, olive oil, a pinch of salt, and a handful of chopped herbs. Serve with crusty white bread and butter,a dn you’re done!

  397. Recently, I’ve been making miso whatever-local-fish-I-can-get-my-hands-on. It’s suuuuper easy (as long as you can get miso where you live) and fast! I don’t have a link for it, but it’s super short so I’ll write it out:

    4 slices butterfish
    2/3 c miso (I mix white and red)
    1 T grated ginger
    3 T sugar
    1 T sake

    Instructions: Mix all ingredients and marinate the fish overnight. The next day, wipe off the marinade and fry or broil the fish for around 5 minutes a side.

    I hope you try it out — it’s yummy! Thanks for the chance to win! πŸ™‚

    Our latest favorite is scalloped potatoes and ham. My husband usually makes it and near as I can tell, the “recipe” he uses is a combination of these two: and . I’ve combined them into one recipe. If you like, contact me and I’ll send what I’ve got. Oh – and leftovers? There never are any.

    I don’t have any dinner ideas right now, sorry but do read your blog

  401. Diann Cornell

    Here’s a simple recipe. Cut a green (or red) pepper into strips. Cut an onion or two into thick slices. Slice a package kielbasa or similar sausage into disks about 1/4 inch thick. Put it all in a pot and cover with plain tomato sauce. Cook until the vegetables wilt. (the sausage is already cooked when you buy it so you only need to heat it up. Either serve on hoagie rolls or over flat noodles. You might want to use more tomato sauce if over noodles. Serve grated parmesan cheese on the side.

    This takes only about 20 minutes all together. It also works with the low fat sausage or kielbasa if you are concerned about fat or calories.

    I am on an iPad at the hospital with my son so I don’t have all my normal links, but there is a honey crockpot chicken on pinterest that is delicious !!

    Sew exciting! Love this little sewing kit!!!! Well what’s a recipe if it isn’t an original. I just perfected my chicken salad and it’s a great easy dinner. In the food processor, cooked chicken and a generous amount of fresh dill remove and add about a tablespoon of lemon juice, mayo to desired consistency, and sliced almonds (the flavored ones if your feeling fancy) ENJOY πŸ˜‰

  411. Charity Reesor

    And I am already an LRStitched stalker! So exciting to double my chances πŸ˜‰

I truly appreciate your comments, thank you for taking the time to leave one! Lindsey
