Recipes the World Forgot

Every couple of months or so I present to you another installment of Recipes the World Forgot. I love the reminder that these humble, little recipes are some of my favorites even if they aren’t the most popular recipes on my site.

Click on the image below to check out each recipe. There are some good ones this month!

I just made a triple batch of that hot fudge sauce last Saturday and it is safely stored in the back of the fridge in quart jars because we devour it like nobody’s business. The sugar cookie bars are a no-brainer when you don’t want the fuss of rolling out and cutting classic sugar cookies and the loaded peanut butter cup cookies kind of speak for themselves, wouldn’t you say? Sweets aside, the main dishes and breads on the list are pretty fabulous, too. Hooray for one-pot wonders!

  1. I made your sweet & spicy pork tenderloin for dinner last week, so delicious! I can’t wait to make it again!

    I want you to know, I have NOT forgotten the one-pot southwest chicken & rice!! That is one of my favorite things to make! I love how adaptable the recipe is too! I’ve shredded, chopped & left the chicken whole. I’ve taken out the corn & added red peppers. Next time I make it (probably next week in all honesty…) I’m planning on taking out the meat all together, and adding broccoli, red peppers, and cauliflower & topping it with olives. 🙂 As a mom myself, I really appreciate that so many of your recipes are so easy to mix up.

    I make that one-pot Southwest Chicken and Rice dish almost once a month. So easy and fabulous! It’s kind of my go to when I realize I haven’t really planned anything. Also, I use the chili-lime marinated chicken breasts from Festival, and that makes it so yummy.

    I love these series, it’s nice to know which of your recipes you return to after all the years.

    I just made your sugar cookie bars this week–with green frosting–as my only attempt at recognizing St. Patrick’s Day. My kids were thrilled! And the southwest chicken and rice (minus the chicken) is perfect for one of our Meatless Monday dinners. We love it! Thanks for the reminder of these others…I will be trying them soon!

    Mel, other folks may have forgotten the sugar cookie bar recipe, but I haven’t forgotten it (and neither have my hips.. ;-). I made the recipe for each of our 3 kids to take as Christmas and Valentine treats so 9 times plus once more for teachers treats in 2 1/2 months. I’m thinking I need to move on and try something else for the kids take but we all love these. Thanks for the great site, it’s a joy to look at it everyday!!

    Sugar cookies bars were already on my list of ‘treats to make’ this week… Now to find a place for the loaded peanut butter cookies- yum! Thank you so much for all of your amazing recipes!

    Ironically, I just made the Sweet & Spicy Pork Tenderloin on Monday night and I really loved it and it was so darn easy too! Don’t be tempted to pass on the sauce brushed on at the end, it really makes the pork tasty and attractive! I used the leftovers for shredding onto a salad for lunch and the spices are perfect. It goes onto my favorites list, so I can understand why you brought it to our attention! Thanks Mel!

    I’m so glad that I recently found your website. I’ve been following your website amost daily for the last few months. I’ve had good success with the recipes I’ve tried and have started a list of ones that I plan to make sooner or later. Your Butter Chicken was especially good as well as the BBQ pulled pork with homemade BBQ sauce. It’s good to have some older recipes brought to the top which I might not have seen yet. I think the tenderloin will be next on my list to try. And that hot fudge sauce…. yum!… must try making that. Thanks for all the great recipes.

    I love love love your whole wheat dinner muffins. So good. Thanks for reminding me that I need to make them again!

  12. Nicole F says:

    Add us to the list of people who make those cookie bars all the time! I love sugar cookies but don’t always want to bother with the rolling and cutting out part, so your recipe is awesome. Love these reminders from you–looking forward to trying the One Pot Southwest Chicken and Rice…and all the others. They ALL look fabulous!

  13. Jen T says:

    Love it when you do these! I make your cookie bars all the time, and your one pot southwest chicken and rice is a family fav here. It is on my menu for next week. Thanks for the others!!!

  14. Elizabeth says:

    I definitely did NOT forget those sugar cookie bars! I make them all the time and everyone LOVES them!!! 🙂

  15. Laura J says:

    Love your Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla Pie! It is now in our regular rotation. I add a few more veggies-corn, red peppers-delicious and looks pretty! The green chilies are a must for us too.

    I can’t wait to make the Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla Pie!
