Go-To Meal Favorites Part 1

I don't know about you, but I'm always interested in seeing what other peoples go-to meals are... you know, the meal you find yourself making over and over. If you're one of those people who are curious, this is your lucky day. Some of my blogging buddies have been nice enough to send me their families favorite go-to meals. I've been so excited about this post! It's almost like peaking into their dining room windows to see what they're cooking! I had so much fun with this I'm dragging it out into two posts. You'll have to keep your eyes peeled for Part 2 next week... I know, I'm evil for holding out on you :)


Katy over at Food For a Hungry Soul always relies on this Amish Meatloaf with Sweet and Sour Sauce. She says, "I can't tell you how many times I've made it. Just looking at the recipe makes me want to have it for dinner tonight!".

Be sure to check out this wonderful beef dish using ingredients you probably already have in your pantry! Click Here for this great recipe!



Here's a mouth watering chicken dish from Donna over at My Tasty Treasures. She found this simple dish with wonderful flavor in Gourmet magazine.

Click Here for this wonderful dish full of chicken, white beans, and tomatoes. Donna says it's, "highly flavorful, and a cinch to make" and also makes a great, "quickie weeknight dinner."

Tina at Mommy's Kitchen shared this yummy recipe for homemade corn dogs! She relies on this because it pleases everyone in her family and she always has the ingredients on hand. Tina also shared this great advice, "We keep buttermilk frozen to have on hand for homemade biscuits, chicken tenders and corn dogs. We always have hot dogs on hand, the rest of the ingredients are staples that I keep in my pantry on a regular basis. So no excuses to go out and eat in a pinch. Click Here for the recipe!


A go-to favorite of Rachel from Rachel vs. "The Kitchen" is this versatile smoked sausage served with mashed potatoes. Rachel says, "This is by far one of the most versatile recipes that we make...it can either be made on the grill or sauteed on the stove in the winter...both ways are delicious!".

Click Here for an amazing meal passed down in Rachel's family, lovingly called "the smoked sausage dish"!


Who wouldn't want to finish off dinner with this wonderful dessert from Melody at Cheat Day Cafe. This pie's her moms signature dessert. Melody says she loves it because, "the possibilities are endless with it!".

Very cool! I love seeing all the recipes from different bloggers.

Let me know which post you would like me to add to my blogger cocktail party. You can leave it in my comments or send me an email. I don't think I should post the one with my go-to recipe, it might get too confusing!
