Would you be willing to share a recipe?

I am looking for good/healthy home cooked meals to prepare for my family. I am tired of the Betty Crocker cookbook and online recipies and want to try something new. What's your favorite dinner you prepare for your family? I have a family of 6 (3 of which are teenage garbage disposals, LOL). Thanks to anyone willing to share!!

  • What kind of foods do you like? Any special dietary needs? It helps to know these things! :) Some of our favorites are: chicken saltimbocca, spaghetti & meatballs, homemade chicken noodle soup, spiedini, beef stew, chicken & ribs with dressing. If you want recipes for any of those let me know. There are also a bunch of recipes plus picture tutorials on my blog if you want to take a look: http://eating-sandiego.blogspot.com

  • One of our favorites is mexican pulled pork. I get a 3 lb boneless pork shoulder roast, and put it in the crock pot with a can of rotel tomatoes, can of diced green chilis, packet of taco seasoning, sliced onions and sliced bell peppers. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 5-6 hours. Uncover, shred the pork and turn on to keep warm while you heat corn tortillas on a skillet or griddle. Chop some fresh cilantro and add to the pork. Slice a lime. Put sour cream (if you like it) on the tortillas and top with the pork mixture. Squeeze on some fresh lime. Yummy, easy and healthy.

  • My all time favorite to cook and not have to stand over stove is,

    1 roast (beef or pork)
    stuff like you would if you were cooking in oven (onions, bell pepper, onion tops, garlic, pepper, salt)
    Season out side w/ salt, pepper, garlic or whatever you usually use.
    Rub roast with kitchen bouquet
    Chop onions and put in rice cooker, add roast cover about 1 - 1/2" over roast, press the start button, then forget about it, when the rice cooker dings, turn roast over add potatoes & carrots
    add same amount of water and press the cook button again, when it dings you have a very tender
    roast and a beautiful brown gravy.
    You can also do this w/ pork chops, chicken, ducks (you can also do the first part the day before so that when you do the rice cooker for the second ding you will have this in about 1 hr at most.
