Easy Breakfast Casserole

"This is great. I’ve made it two times now, once as written and again by adding chopped onions and green bell pepper. Very easy!”


Deviled Eggs With Lemon

“The lemon really brightened up these eggs! It was my first time making deviled eggs and they were easier than I thought! I just had to be careful getting the yolks out. I only broke on half of an egg, but that just meant I could eat it!”


Italian Easter Egg Baskets

“Such a fun treat for the kids! The dough is really easy to work with, and it didn’t stick much to my counter when I was rolling it out which I really liked. The flavor of the cookie is great! I was skeptical if this was gonna work, but it was way easier than it looks!”


Spring Green Risotto

“Such a winning combination of flavors! I loved how creamy this was, especially with the mascarpone and extra sprinkling of parmesan. The lemon is the perfect touch, don’t skip it!”


Danish Easter Cake

“This recipe is very light, and delicious for Easter. It can be used as a Christmas cake as well. As for most yeast breads, it tastes best when it’s still luke warm!”


Hot Cross Buns

“I made a half batch of these for Easter Sunday. They turned out beautifully. The only thing wrong with these is that they’re so delightful, you may end up eating too many!”


Southern Sweet Iced Tea

“This tea is exactly what I was looking for and exactly what the title says! I made it for the first time the other day, and have made it daily ever since. So refreshing on a hot day!”


Ham Salad Sandwiches

“We just had a shower for a friend at work and I made this. Everyone loved them and went back for seconds and thirds! It’s a good thing I tripled the recipe.”


Alpaca Carrot Cake Cupcakes

“Carrot cake is hands-down my favorite cake, and these cupcakes could easily go head to head with the best slices I’ve ever had. I included all of the add-ins - toasted pecans, fresh pineapple, raisins and of course, tons of carrots for a moist cake that’s full of flavor. It’s deliciously addictive.”


Easy Lemon Pound Cake

“This cake had a good flavor and texture! I especially liked the drizzled lemon glaze. I’m not sure how it would be at room temperature seeing it was all gone before it cooled!”


So-Easy Salmon Patties

“These are nice and tender! I’ve made salmon patties many times before, but these were great! I served them with fresh green beans and roasted potatoes.”


Easy Crepes

“This is a great recipe. The crepes are really soft with a nice, creamy taste. They’re perfect to eat with both a sweet or savory filling. I’ve always used the same recipe in the past, but I’m switching to this one from now on!”

Honey Baked Ham

“Yummy! Using my blowtorch was fun. This was my first ham and we all thoroughly enjoyed it!”


Easter Bunny Cupcakes

“This was such a cute idea! I used candy eyes, a pink skittle and colored the split marshmallows with a pink food coloring marker. I also used a homemade lemon buttercream instead of canned frosting!”


Homemade Angel Food Cake

“This is a wonderful cake! I took it to work for a special person’s birthday, and it was a huge hit. I filled the tunnel with peaches and whipped cream, iced it with whipped cream and placed some peach slices around the top.”


Deviled Eggs

"I made these for a neighborhood get together and they were gone in 60 seconds! These were absolutely delish.”

-Ann Cecile


“An excellent taste and texture! I used frozen spinach instead of fresh. I let it thaw and then squeezed all of the water out before using.”

“This pie turned out so beautiful! The guests I served it to thought so too, and loved how it tasted. It's so lemony with quite a creamy texture in the filling. Excellent!”

-Izy Hossack

Simple Oven-Baked Sea Bass

"Really, really delicious. This created a beautiful sauce as the fish juices and wine reduced.”


Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

“This was incredibly easy and tastes great! I’ve also tried it without the poppy seeds, adding fresh blueberries instead. I kept the lemon glaze, poured half the batter into a bundt pan, layered one pint of fresh blueberries, and topped it with the remaining batter. Delicious!”

-Estella L.

Chocolate Cream-Filled Easter Eggs

“These were seriously so tasty! I’m not kidding when I say that I nearly ate the entire batch by myself. My mouth waters every time I think about these eggs.”


Patti Labelle's Macaroni & Cheese

“The absolute best macaroni and cheese ever! I’ve never had leftovers of this because it disappears. I add seasoned breadcrumbs to the top before baking!”

-torres s.

Waldorf Salad

“A deluxe Waldorf salad! This was amazing. I added dried cranberries, but followed the recipe otherwise! This is a delightful and scrumptious recipe.”


Peach Bellini

“I bought a large can of canned peaches, drained off the syrup and froze them. They were perfect! For brunch, I made them as is with the canned peaches. For a hot afternoon chilling by the lake, I threw in some vodka. You can't miss with this one!”


Rack of Lamb Persillade

“This crust was so good! Perfectly cooked with a delicious breading on a tender, medium rare lamb. We chose this last minute and it really was easy, with minimal prep work.”

Creamy Parmesan Leeks

“Really tasty! I cooked it for the first time and served it with crispy bread!”

-Chris D.

Muffin-Tin Crab Cakes

“These were excellent! I loved the fact that you don’t have to fry them, reducing all the excess grease. I cut the recipe in half and made six little cakes. I used regular breadcrumbs, and added some Italian seasoning. I’ll make these again for sure!”


Surprise Easter Cupcakes

“These were so fun to make with my seven year old! He did all of it himself, and I frosted them. I thought they were really good.”

-Chef Kelly Bug

Pan-Fried Asparagus

“We’re asparagus lovers, so we adored this simple and easy recipe! For the timing, I think it just depends on how thick your asparagus spears are. I only needed six minutes to cook mine since they were thin. The flavor was delicious!”

“Don’t be intimidated by the look of this cake! It takes little time to make, and if you follow the diagram on the picture gallery, you’ll fine it to be surprisingly easy and a lot of fun to make! A great activity to do with the kids.”

“What's not to love about these? The sticky topping with pecans, plus the cinnamon filling with some more crunchy walnuts - heaven! The dough was really easy to work with as well.”

-Izy Hossack

Grilled Lemon Salmon

“This was fantastic! We served it with pineapple rice and fresh green beans. A very satisfying meal!”

-Aunt Paula

Easter Egg Nest Treats

"I made these for our Easter gathering this year, and they were pretty easy to make! Just a note: if you're using medium or small muffin cups, you'll end up with about 18 instead of 16. There was no Rice Krispie mixture left over, exactly enough! This recipe is definitely being saved!"


Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake

“If I could give this 10 stars, I would! It was fabulous. They were huge shortcakes, but the bigger the better! The recipe was so easy to follow, and the shortcakes were lovely, flaky and soft.”

Moist & Delicious Banana Bread

“This is my go-to recipe for banana bread. I’ve used it multiple times as is and it comes out perfect and moist every time!”

-Sabrina V.

Perfect Pork Tenderloin

Ham, Zucchini & Pumpkin Risotto

“This dish is very tasty, easy to make and is always enjoyed in our home.”


Crumbly Peach Cobbler

Rice Krispie Easter Treats

“This recipe is quick, easy to make and perfect as a sweet Easter gift. You can create various shapes depending on the cookie cutters you use. I made one large duck from the entire recipe, but if you use smaller cookie cutters you’ll get a much greater yield. Have fun!”


Deviled Egg Chicks

"These were a hit! I found that trying to cut the eggs in a zigzag pattern was close to impossible, so I cut them straight across and they looked just fine!”


Cheesy Ham & Penne Casserole

“My whole family loved this! I followed the recipe exactly and we gobbled it up. We barely had leftovers for lunch the next day! Awesome.”


Basic Quiche

“This was very easy to make and came out perfect! I used fresh steamed broccoli, chopped pastrami and freshly shredded cheese. I wish I would’ve added onion, but I can always add that next time!”


Fresh Fruit Tart

“A very easy recipe if you follow the instructions carefully! The dough is a bit crumbly, but I had no problem rolling it out between wax paper. The directions for the custard didn’t mention when to add vanilla, so I added it before I let it cool. I made mine with all strawberries on top and it looked and tasted great!”


Hashbrown Casserole

“I added an extra can of cream of chicken soup. It made it perfect, just like Cracker Barrel! I reheated the leftovers the next day and it was even better than the day before.”

-Debra M.

Traditional Fruity & Spiced Hot Cross Buns

“These are my first time making hot cross buns. Wow, we were so impressed! They’re so tasty and light. I increased the spices the second time around as we like a little extra flavor.”


Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

“This cake was an absolute hit with my family! The only thing I did differently was using yellow cake mix instead of pineapple cake mix. With the addition of pineapple juice in the batter and slices for the topping, you get plenty of pineapple flavor without it being overpowering! Moist, yummy and a definite keeper.”

“This was such a show-stopper! It took longer than mentioned to make the reductions and glaze, but that was fine with me because the amount of taste and flavor was outstanding! Even a non-lamb eater was digging this.”


Ham Salad Sandwich

Ham Hocks & Beans

Brown Sugar Glaze for Ham

“What an easy recipe! I even made extra. Usually I just use the packaged glaze, but not anymore!”


Roasted Asparagus

“Asparagus takes a whole new significance when you roast it like this! I put the stalks in a zip bag and toss to avoid getting my fingers dirty, then turn them onto a baking sheet.

The Original Potato Salad

-Lindas Recipes

Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

“I’ve only had sweet potatoes a handful of times, and they were almost always sweet. We’re trying to eat healthier and since sweet potatoes are better for you than white potatoes, I decided to try this recipe. I’m sure glad I did! We’ll definitely be making this again.”

-Kerry G

Fresh Green Bean Casserole

“Sensational bean casserole, and oh-so-easy to make! This recipe is perfect for larger, less-than-perfect beans which is what I had on hand. There were seven of us, and everyone smacked their way through this! Much loved by all. I’ll make this often when I have beans and mushrooms on hand.”

-Chef Tweaker

Spinach & Feta-Stuffed Chicken Breast

Peeps S'mores

“I made these for an Easter egg hunt party. They were a huge hit with both the kids and adults!”

"This is a great recipe! You can shake some extra seasonings on the wings once they are coated, or add to the bag.
