I have so many, but nothing beats chili, with a scoop of brown rice, some avocado, cheese and sour cream.
Best Chili Ever â€“ you can use any bean; 1 can = 1/5 cups home cooked
2 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
4 cups vegetable broth
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can white (cannellini) beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen baby lima beans or regular lima beans or corn
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can tomato paste
2 tablespoons chili powder, or more to taste
2 tablespoons dried Mexican oregano or regular oregano (or more to taste)
2 teaspoons ground cumin (or more to taste)
1 teaspoon ground coriander (or more to taste)
1 to 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1-2 Tbl masa, mixed with cold water
1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese

1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Salt to taste (I add this last)
If you donâ€™t have a slowcooker, this can simmer on the stove; stir and add liquid as needed. In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients but the masa, shredded cheese, cilantro and salt. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Five to 10 minutes before serving (depending on temperature of slow cooker) add masa and water mixture, cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and other spices.
Just before serving, top each serving with shredded cheese and cilantro.

I have a new fav, pork tenderloin with sauerkraut, apple juice, diced apples and onions, sprinkled with brown sugar...delicous!

The only time I followed an actual cp recipe, it turned out horrid. So I just do what sounds good in it, I never cook roast the same way, I've never had anything come out bad.

I use the same beef stew recipe posted above from allrecipes.com and it is delicious. Another favorite is Pulled Pork.

Dried split pea soup; simple; toss in the peas - fill with water, add onion, carrots, celery, dill, parsley and leave it alone for all the time needed ( good couple of hours) and voila the best soup ever. You can add salt and pepper. If you have left over stew meat add that in. It's great. email@example.com
