Another round of Six Recipes the World Forgot! It’s been a few months since I’ve posted one of these and it’s about time to highlight six recipes that I continue to love and make all the time…but somehow they’ve been {mostly} overlooked by mankind. A true injustice. They are each delightful and worthy of your precious cooking/baking minutes!

Here’s a brief rundown of why I adore each of these recipes: the chocolate mousse cheesecake pie combines just about every component of what there is to love in the world. Lasagna soup is one of my all-time favorite soups and is so easy to make (and uses pretty much pantry staples) that it appears often on busy nights. The Thai wraps are just plain delicious and different – a perfect lunch or dinner. Cinnamon roll sugar cookies = too cute for words. Chili verde is one of the tastiest slow cooker meals ever and the hot fudge pudding cake is pure chocolate decadence.

    That should read YOUR chili verde. I don’t recommend just any chili verde. 🙂

  2. Danielle says:

    Anytime someone posts a slow cooker meal request on facebook I recommend chili verde. LOVE it. In fact I made it last week. 🙂

    Mel!! Your recipes rock! I always tell my friends to come to your site first before trying to find something for dinner and ESPECIALLY for dessert. These 6 recipes all look so good (the desserts!!!!) that I just had to tell you how much I appreciate your hard work and sharing such yumminess. Seriously, so grateful. (By I’m also fasting right now so I’m probably a little overly food obsessed at the moment 😉
    Can’t wait to try them all…thanks!!!

  4. I love it when you do these round-ups; I always find new favorites!

  5. I’m all for the first pie and the chili verde! And let’s not forget the chocolate pudding cake, that will never go out of style!

  7. Teresa says:

    Thanks for the reminder on the hot fudge cake. I had seen it a while back, wanted to make it, but forgot about it. I hope you are having fun with your girlfriends. Sometime, I would love to hear what kind of Mel’s homemade meals you left for your family when you went away. I am always struggling to decide how/what to leave my family with meals if I am away for a few days. Any organizing tips would be appreciated!

    I have followed you for so long that I recognize all of these!! Love the cake, love the soup and can’t wait to try the pork!

    I am actually starting my FOURTH decade, since I just turned 30! That’s what happens when you are on chocolate overload! 😉
    Thanks again!

  10. I love when you do these forgotten recipes!

  11. Sheila says:

    Thank you, Mel! You solved my dilemma of what to serve for dessert for my daughter’s birthday next week — chocolate cheesecake pie. Your lasagna soup is the very best! Thanks, also, for diligently working hard last week so you could continue to “feed” your blog followers while on a vacation. You are the best. I hope you are thoroughly enjoying your last few days with your “sisters” from college days.

  12. Janna says:

    I wanted to try a new dessert tonight for my birthday, so I made the hot fudge pudding cake (with vanilla ice cream). My husband, my kids and I LOVED it, and my family even stuck candles in it so they could sing to me! It was a great way to start off my third decade! Thanks so much for sharing so many wonderful recipes! 🙂

  13. Shannon C says:


    Thanks for the recipes! Do you use a pork butt for “pork roast”? I can never find a package that says roast.

  14. Brittany C. says:

    I’ve made your chocolate mousse cheesecake, and it is to die for good!!! I think is may be my favorite round of “recipes the world forgot” yet.

  15. Andrea says:

    Thanks for the nudge to make these. I had never made the lasagna soup but could not resist trying it tonight. We really enjoyed it, and I can tell that the leftovers will be even better!

  16. I love when you do these “recipes the world forgot” posts! I always find at least one recipe to try or one I’ve forgotten about. Thanks Mel!

  17. Alisha says:

  18. Kim in MD says:

  19. Clearing my schedule! These all look like must-makes!

  20. Jen T says:

  21. that chocolate mousse cheesecake pie…WOW…looks amazing!

  22. Jan says:

    Thanks for the Chili Verde, wondering if it would work with chicken?

  23. Emily H. says:

    I make the Thai Chicken Wraps all the time, but we don’t ever make them as wraps, just as rice bowls. It’s one of my family’s favorite dinners!

  24. Kathy says:

    Your Lasagna Soup is one of my family’s favorites! It’s delicious!

  25. Rebekah says:

    We just had your lasagna soup last night for dinner. Seriously, one of the most perfect soups!
