Top 10 Recipes

I am not saying that these are the best recipes in the world, but they’re mine!
I love to cook, and over my life, I have eaten a lot of food, but not all of it was good, and some were just amazing that I wanted to make it again, and they became some of my favorite foods!
Cream Puffs are one of the best desserts, in my opinion. You do not need a lot of experience, and it does not take a long time. This recipe is one of the easiest and more complicated recipes out there, which is my favorite. However, I would only use three eggs!
My family loves banana bread and has gone through a lot of different recipes. When my sister got Joanna Gaines’s cookbook, the first recipe I tried was her banana bread, and now that is the only one we use!
My mom loves Chinese food, and when you love something, you want your kids to love it. However, I was not too fond of Chinese food; I thought it was the worst food ever. But one day, I wanted Orange chicken. I have no idea where it came from, but now I eat the most Chinese food than all my family members combined. My family likes to eat healthily, so instead of frying the chicken, I grill it instead, and it is just as good as the fried.
I love spicy food, and over the years and burning my taste buds too many times, I have built up a tolerance to spicy food, and finding anything spicy is hard. Although this is the best spicy chicken nuggets, I have ever had. So if you like spicy, I would make this! If you do not have paprika or you want it to be spicier, add cayenne pepper.
My mom and I have a special connection, and that connection is that we both love ginger snaps. With that being said, in her lifetime and mine, we have tried quite a lot of recipes to find the best ginger snap recipe. This one is my favorite and, if you like, add a little extra ginger!
Box-made brownies are my favorite; however, my mom does not let us get them, for they are not healthy. This recipe tastes like the box mix, so if that is something you are into, this is the perfect recipe.
Sour things are one of my favorite and so are gummies. If you can relate, I am broke! This means that I can’t just go out and buy gummies when ever I want. This is one of, if not my favorite, recipes. If you have money, add Miliard Citric or Sour Powder.
Like in most others, pizza is a family favorite. But if white flour is something that you are not inclined to use, this is the perfect recipe for the whole wheat dough. I like to add Oregano and Italian Season to give it more flavor. You can add a teaspoon or two, depending on what you are going for.
Ice cream is always a yes and good to have on hand. Fruit is one of the best things ever and so refreshing. My favorite berry blend is Kirkland’s berry blend which my mom gets at Costco. If you do not like fruit, you can also do this with two tablespoons of cocoa powder instead of the two cups of berries.
My brother sends me many recipes, but this one is one of my favorites, and I make a lot. If you love, like, or eat potatoes, this is a must-make recipe. When making this, I would soak the potatoes for five minutes instead of ten minutes.
There are so many more recipes that I love, but these are my top ten favorites. I hope that you found something on his list that you will come to love and make and share.
