Foodie Question of the Day

March 12, 2008 at 10:47 am 19 comments

What dish have you made so many times you don’t need the recipe anymore?

Hands down… chicken nachos.

Its one of T’s favorite requests. I make them maybe once a week or at least every other week. EEP! Damn you April for showing me this recipe! Hmm… maybe this is why I can’t lose weight? haha

This may not seem like a big feat to some but its HUGE for me b/c I have a terrible memory! Just ask Nikki and she’ll tell you how many times I’ve forgotten things she’s told me within minutes. But in my defense I like to say that I am a good secret keeper b/c I end up forgetting anyways! hehe

    HA! Ah yes, the chicken nachos. So bad, but oh so incredibly good. I LOOOOVE them!

    I think mine is chicken nachos and chicken/potato pizza. That one is super easy. I’m also pretty good at Fancy Fast Chicken these days. : )

    APRIL, true! i forgot about the chicken & potato pizza. I make it on a regular basis too. I only made fancy chicken 1x but I really need to make it again. It was yum!

    hahaha CB had the single worst memory of anyone I’ve ever met. But I wub you for it beech.

    Thinks I make without a recipe … any of my regular stuff, but in all honestly, when i cook, I tend to look at an ingredient list then wing it. I never really follow a recipe. Baking, on the other hand, I follow recipes and don’t really know any by heart

    NIKKI, haha i knew you’d agree. Oh yeah… no way I can bake without a recipe. Too many numbers to remember. Whats your name again?

    Really, anything I’ve made more than 2X, I don’t really use a recipe for (other than baked goods!) some off the top of my head are baked ziti, alfredo, red beans and rice, shrimp n grits, chili, corn bread, dressing, sweet potato casserole, squash casserole….I really don’t like using recipes, but have learned to when baking!

    KRISTINA, dang you’re good! It would take me more than 2x to remember a recipe.

    I have a lot I make off the top of my head because our dinners are on a pretty tight rotation. We are creatures of habit.

    And I will agree your a good secret keeper, the best. (At least as far as I know) ;)

    SLUSH, uh… have you told me a secret? haha. I hear you about habit. Same here. I think thats why it took me a while to “learn” to cook.

  • 9. NinaBeth  |  March 12, 2008 at 12:15 pm

    Recipe? What’s that? Is that the piece of paper that I’m suppossed to follow the directions on?

  • 10. CB  |  March 12, 2008 at 12:18 pm

    NINA, whatever with that shiz. You use recipes! haha

  • 11. Alanna  |  March 12, 2008 at 2:42 pm

    Chicken Parmesan, for sure. And Peanut Butter Noodles.

  • 12. CB  |  March 12, 2008 at 2:43 pm

    ALANNA, chicken parm is an almost for me. I can bake it pretty well but not confident enough without a quick look at my handy recipe. teehee

  • 13. Michelle  |  March 12, 2008 at 2:46 pm

    Chicken parm!

  • 14. CB  |  March 12, 2008 at 2:53 pm

    MICHELLE, another chicken parm aficionado huh? Whats your recipe? I am always looking to try new ones!

  • 15. kate  |  March 12, 2008 at 3:41 pm

    roast chicken and then chicken noodle soup after.
    comfort food!

    Buttercream Icing. I’ve had that recipe memorized since high school. But, if you are asking about real food, then it gets tougher. For a while I had my naan recipe memorized & then got out of the habit of making it. Most other things I either cook infrequently enough to need a recipe, or I cook it so often that I just sort of toss things together and call it “close enough.” I do think that I have my bulgur pilaf recipe memorized now that I think of it.

  • 17. CB  |  March 12, 2008 at 4:23 pm

    KATE, Mmmmm I can dig comfort food. Where can I find your roast chicken recipe? linky please!

    ZEBE, you are too cool for school. I still need my buttercream recipe and I know I’ve made it a zillion times. I get kinda neurotic that I am not measuring right…

  • 18. Ashley  |  March 12, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    For me, it’s macaroni and cheese. Mmmm. Though I do love nachos too!

  • 19. CB  |  March 12, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    ASHLEY, Mmmm mac&cheese=comfort food. I assume you don’t mean from a box right? I would love your recipe please! :)
