forgotten recipes 10 final

These eight beautiful recipes are a few favorites that are repeated often in our house and if you haven’t made them…well, you probably ought to do that pretty soon. It’s been a while since the last installment of Recipes the World Forgot and posting today, I realize I love this little series. Sometimes the recipes hidden in the woodwork of this blog are the very best ones.

If you’ve ever wanted a great bread recipe but might be intimidated, that herb focaccia bread right down there is quite possibly the easiest, yummiest bread in all the land (and those no-bake yogurt cheesecakes? don’t get me started).

Have a great weekend!

  1. This is perfect for someone like me who only recently discovered your blog! 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    Those cheesecake stuffed bars are one of our favorites. So popular at potlucks and school functions, too! Love them.

      Mel, I enjoy this series as well….have you already done ten of them? Time flies! We loved the lasagna rolls and I need to make more of those…a great reminder. Also, I decided last month that 2015 I was going to work on my bread making skills…I think I might have to try your herbed focaccia this week. Thanks!

    I haven’t made the skillet one in awhile. It’s so easy and good. Going to put it in my dinner plan this coming week.

    I just made the enchilada skillet for the first time on Saturday! It is so good!

    • Ann says:

      I make this skillet ALL THE TIME, because my friends request it. Gotta take it to work to share! Thanks, it’s excellent!

    I love the Greek Pita Salad! So fresh and delicious. And I’ve had the Apple Dapple cake on my ‘recipes to try’ pinterest board for a long time–I guess I will have to bump it up 🙂

    I love the Apple Dapple cake.

  7. Kelsey says:

    I love these posts! I need to try the focaccia and the enchilada skillet this week!!

    So I am trying to streamline my recipie binder (yes, I have one of those – I don’t like cooking from a screen.) I want to stick with about 24 dinners that the family loves and maybe another 12 for summer and 12 for winter. That is plenty of variety for us. I was poking around here and wondering what recipies you would choose – then I actually read through these ‘forgotten’ posts and realized I had found it! I love your website. The recipies are clear, well-written, always turn out. Thank you for all the work you put into this. You are a blessing to our family!

    We love the focaccia. I love how quick it can be made to turn a soup or salad into a real meal. We dip it in olive oil and balsamic vinegar and there are never any leftovers. It’s also nice as an appetizer. My kids call it “salty bread” and always cheer when it’s on the table.

  10. I plan out my whole month on an (old fashioned) spiral calendar. I’ve kept them for years. Sometimes when I need inspiration I will go back and look at what we used to eat. Sometimes I bring back an oldie. But mostly I’m done with it. YOUR oldies however are new to me so thank you!

  11. Great idea for a roundup! I often am sad when I notice a recipe I adored is not getting any attention. Which is why at the end of the year I do my favorites along with reader favorites.

  12. Danica says:

    This is seriously one of my favorite things that you post. I get excited every time I see one on my feed (clearly I need to get out more) and I love adding them into our menu planning. Thanks for putting them together!

  13. Helen says:

    Wow .. Love this one !! I always love when you do these .. But I’m especially fond of this one … It also includes some of my all time favorites !!! Mel, you never fail to make my day!!!

  14. Jen T says:

    I have made the lasagna rolls twice in the last month. They are good! and my girls have made the cheesecake cookie bars before. Yum! Love it when you do this Mel!!!! Thanks!

  15. Sheila says:

    I really like this series too! Happy Weekend right back at you, Mel.

    So many choices and I’m sure they are all delicious! If you had to pick a favorite from these choices, which would it be? These Italian Lasagna Rollups, your Baked Manicotti, or your Cheesy Spinach Stuffed Shells? I’ve made the last two and my family loved both of them. Unfortunately, I’m not a ricotta cheese eater, so I’ve actually never tasted either. That’s another reason I love your recipes-I always know they’ll be delicious even if it’s something I haven’t tasted myself!

  17. Kira says:

    Looks like I have a few I did miss!!! But we have had the cheesecake stuffed bars and the Italian lasagna roll ups- both on our favorites list. Your recipes NEVER disappoint! In over four years I have yet to make something that didn’t turn out from your blog. Your talent is a blessing for us! So glad you share. Your food is so delicious

    I definitely haven’t forgotten the black bean and butternut squash skillet – we love it!!
