  1. Our favorite recipe here is my friend Stella’s Cream of Chicken Soup. It’s so yummy. I usually have to double the recipe & even then it’s gone by the next day.

  2. Our favorite Best Bites recipe is their chicken taquitos, but our non-Best Bites favorite is Taco Rice… Something we discovered while living in Okinawa, Japan.

  3. My grandfather is the cook in the family. Our favorite of his is Chicken Coq au Vin. It’s thin, strips of chicken simmered is a white mushroom and wine sauce and deliciously paired with, homemade creamy fettucini alfredo. jalapeno cheese bread brings the meal together. delish!

  4. My family’s favorite (although it’s hard to choose) is pecan raisin pie. It’s requested every year for our daughter’s birthday, plus Christmas, and any other occasion one can think of. Yum!

  5. We have a German Chocolate Cake recipe that my mom makes for everyone’s birthday. Her mom made it for all of her children on their birthdays as well. It makes me smile..

  6. My favorite is German Bread Dough dumpling’s with ham and potatoes. Yummy! This is a family recipe that my grandma taught me and is the best comfort food ever. I have not met anyone who does not enjoy this dish when they try it. Hope to win your cookbook I love twopeas!

  7. Our favorite family recipe is my mom’s blackberry cobbler. Oh I wish she were here – it was one of those that she had in her head and now that she is gone I have never been able to find one like it. She was the best. Recipes are family – they are home.

  8. So far I have not found a favorite family recipe. I am still in the process of learning to make dinner and get my kids to eat it successfully.

  9. Wow, we have so many favorites it’s hard to choose. We love my bolognese, but our new favorite is one I threw together because of something we bought in Seaside/Monterey Bay. We stopped at this little vegetable stand that was selling their own artichoke heart marinara. It was so good I looked at the ingredients and took in one step further and made my own artichoke heart red wine marinara. That’s all my daughter wants now.

  10. We really don’t have family recipes passed down but I do love EVERYTHING that my grandmother makes! She’s planning on making a cookbook for everyone this Christmas with her recipes. I can’t wait!!!

  11. My favorite family recipe is Red Beans & Rice. The recipe was passed down to my mom & dad from an old family friend and now it’s become the foundation of every family gathering we have 🙂 Just the thought of it will ALWAYS warm my heart!

  12. I love any of my moms Chinese food! I don’t think I could pick just one dish. Probably her noodle dish that is sort of like chow mein. 🙂

  13. My older sister makes amazing potato salad, and it has been a favourite for all summertime gatherings for decades.

  14. Choosing a favorite family recipe is ridiculously hard and I’d have an endless list if I could, so I’ll just go with my Mom’s cheesy broccoli and cauliflower soup!!

  15. My dad’s lasagna! Recipe originated out of a Betty Crocker cookbook, but he has altered it over time to be just perfect!

  16. My husbands family has a tradition of making a custard ball every Easter. I love watching him make it and cannot wait until we have little ones to make even more memories of this with!

  17. Our favorite is made more than any other recipe. It is a crunchy chocolate chip cookie that includes special k cereal, oatmeal and nuts

  18. I have two – my dad’s cornbread stuffing and my Grandpa’s spaghetti sauce. So good – and so much more important to me now that they are both gone.

  19. Aunt Marge’s Dessert if I could only pick one that has many memories. It’s like one of the original dump cake recipes.

  20. my favourite family recipe would either be any of my grandmother’s pies (especially beef and onion!) or bread and butter pudding. Great giveaway! thanks 🙂

  21. I have 3 kids (4 and a half, and twins at 2)… they are still getting accustomed to simple flavors but they absolutely love spaghetti (w/meat sauce) and breadsticks. Also, chinese noodles as well. They are great with vegetables, but the amount of spaghetti and bread they put away amazes me. It always brings me a smile to see them eat so well.

  22. We love Sanpete marinated turkey. It was always special when we’d grill it when I was growing up. (And I would LOVE to have a copy of this cookbook.)

  23. A favorite recipe for my husband and I is a recipe for cajun chicken pasta. It’s a recipe that I got from a friend and it is not very figure friendly, but we love to have it for special occasions and the leftovers are even better the next day!

  24. My favorite family recipe has always been my mom’s “chicken and rice”–bone-in chicken breasts slow cooked in white wine, onions, cream of mushroom, and golden mushroom soup…topped off with some rice (now we use whole grain). Mmmm! That plus her frozen chocolate-peanut butter covered banana slices equals perfection!

  25. I’ve always loved chicken sauce with rice that my grandmother used to make me and my brother when we were little. It’s so simple yet incredibly delicious. (That might have something to do with grandmothers not being afraid of cream and butter..)

  26. It’s so hard to choose a favorite recipe! It all depends on the season and my mood, haha! A go-to favorite is my MIL’s Mexican Chicken Casserole. It’s great for any Sunday and a perfect meal to take to another family! Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  27. Our family’s favorite recipe is delicious homemade chicken pillows! it’s about the only thing the whole family will eat and love together. 8)

  28. my favorite family recipe is Double Chocolate Brownies, affectionately known as DCB’s around here. I am 48 years old and I’ve been baking them since I was in Jr. High. They are incredibly delicious and I have yet to find another recipe that I like better. Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. My mum’s soy sauce & ginger braised chicken- and of course she never measures anything! Thank you for doing this!

  30. My mothers Old Fashioned Potato Salad. So yummy that I make it with a whole sack of potatoes because my family won’t leave it alone until it’s all gone. Then I have seen the grandkids swipe a finger and lick the bowl. It is awesome.

  31. It is so hard to say. We love trying new recipes all the time. I’ve notices we really love pumpkin breakfast recipes. Our newest and instant classic was the pumpkin scones with a maple glaze on top.

  32. My favorite Go To Family meal is taco soup. So easy and fast. The boys love dipping the tortilla chips. I love Our Best Bites.

  33. One on each side of the family – my dad’s mother makes a date cake that all the men in the family on that side love. My mom’s sister makes the best butterfinger dessert that everybody fights over at family gatherings on that side =)

  34. I’d have to say my very favorite is a layered casserole dish that doesn’t even have a name so I’ll just call it sausage casserole. Yum! Might just make that for dinner tonight.

  35. A dish I love to make, and one we will all eat…is a chicken enchilada dish. My kids are now grown at 21 & 23 and they still request this, even on holidays.

  36. WOW-I would LOVE to have this!!!

    Our favorite family recipe/meal is Chicken Ortega…it started with a recipe off of a can many, many years ago and has grown to have a recipe and flavor all it’s own!

    Mmmm, I think I might make some tonight! Thanks for the chance, and good luck!

  39. I love their butternut squash soup! There are so many other ones too, this was just the first one that came to mind.

  42. We Love making homemade bbq chicken pizza with our family’s homemade bbq sauce! so yummy! Would Love to Win!!!!

  43. Our favorite family recipe is meat stuffing. It was handed down to us from my grandfather. We use it every Thanksgiving, Christmas and any other special occasion we would have a turkey for. It always provides a story at dinner and a happy memory of our grandfather.

  44. Stuffed roast pork tenderloin with chopped apples, rosemary, onion and garlic. Easy homemade stuffing and yummy 🙂

  45. My step-dad is Swiss so our big ‘family night’ dinner was always fondue. I’d make myself sick every stinking time because it was just so good. One can OD on cheese…

  46. Chicken pot pie! I have already made it twice in the past week and a half! (although the pulled pork sandwiches I made last night are a close second!)

  47. There are actually two family favorites in the house… the kids love my homemade tacos with my special seasoning & bean mixture & hubby and I love crab legs with my spicy butter dipping sauce!

  48. We love homemade lasagna and cheesy french bread. I can even get all three of my kids to eat it (which is pretty amazing)!

  49. We are currently loving bean and beef burritos. I think I got the recipe from afewshortcuts.com. I love chili of all kinds, and a classic in our house is pot roast. We are also currently enjoying not-sagna
    pasta toss from Rachael Ray.

  50. My family loves a cheesy potato soup made with bacon, sour cream, green onions, cheese & potatoes. As the kids left home, they always called for the recipe for a cold winter day.

  51. My favorite family recipe is Pernil al Horno (Puerto Rican roast pork shoulder). This is traditionally served at Christmas, but it’s too good to only eat once a year, so I have to fix it several times a year. : )

  52. I love cookbooks and I know that I would enjoy this one. The recipe I would like to try is the Single Serving Pie. That just sounds so interesting and it would really make good gifts.

  53. We love food so much that it’s hard to pick a favorite. I’d have to narrow it down to anything in the mexican food category! That’s always golden. 🙂

  54. About the only thing everyone in my family can agree on liking is chicken…so I can’t wait to try OBB’s Spicy Honey Chicken!! I’ll have the fattest stars in my eyes if I win this rockin’ cookbook! ;D

  63. Our favorite family dish would have to be baked pork chops that are coated in a buttery cracker crust seasoned with Lawry’s salt. It’s unbelievably simple and it is the only dish that all 4 of us agree on. 🙂

  64. I would have to go with my Grandma’s Chicken Soup coupled with some homemade rolls. It is so delicious that I have become a sort of chicken soup snob- I can not eat it from a can anymore. It is just not good enough!

    I have heard fabulous things about this cookbook, I hope you pick me!!

  65. My husbands grandfather served in Hawaii for awhile. He has a recipe that is delicious!! It’s called Hula Ham Hawaiian, and it is divine!!

  70. Mormon Enchiladas. Very unique and oh so good. Ask me about them. I will share the recipe. I would like to know if they are your families favorite too.

  71. My mothers (may she rest in peace) made a fabulous Zucchini Bread, soo moist and tender. I grow Zucchini every year so I can make it and give them away to bless others and it puts a smile on my face as if Mommy was in the kitchen cooking with me! :0)

  73. The fam loves it when I make baked chicken and yet it is so easy! Just spread some mayo on top of the chicken and add Lawry’s seasoning salt. Bake in the oven and you’re done. Tastes heavenly. The chicken comes out soooo moist.

  75. My grandma’s Breakfast Corned Beef Hash! Always after a big dinner of Corned Beef, Cabbage and Potatoes! Mmmmmmm!

  78. I LOVE Easter, because it’s the ONE time of year that we get Phosnox (sp?) which are German Yeast Donuts. Actually, the family’s always called them “Mrs. Meyer’s Donuts” (the old neighbor who gave grandma the recipe) until Dad, foodie for us all, gave us the “real” name. SO delicious!!

  79. My favorite recipe would be my mother’s Strawberry Banana Bread. She created the recipe when I was a little girl and it has remained my favorite recipe of all!

  80. My favorite family recipe is Swedish meatballs, something we have every Christmas but also throughout the year. It always reminds me of my grandma and great aunt.

  81. My family’s favorite recipe is probably pizza. Or macaroni and cheese. Or brownies. Or ice cream. So many to choose from; it’s hard to pick just one!

  82. My favorite family recipe is what I call “Portuguese beef stew” but really it’s just a stew of meat and potatoes. It is to DIE for!! The meat is so tender and the potatoes just melt in your mouth. My mother would make it for me whenever I came home from college because she knew I loved it!

    Thanks for the give away opportunity!

  83. My favorite family recipe is one that goes back many generations to Belgium. It requires a special waffle iron, takes much time to make, but I look forward every Christmas to having those Belgian Waffle Cookies!

  84. I love my moms homemade rolls.. there is nothing better than going home to eat hot rolls for dinner. I love Our Best Bites.. Hope I win their cookbook

  86. I love my mom’s lasagna! She always substituted cottage cheese for the ricotta and that’s how I have always made it 🙂

  89. I love Our best bites blog so I’m sure their cookbook is AMAZING. Thanks for the giveaway. My favorite family recipe is my Grandpa’s fluffy waffles. SO tasty!

  92. My love it when my mother makes reservations! She really was not a good cook and when she did, we usually ended up ordering pizza. I’m trying to break the cycle and cook and bake more. Thanks for the opportunity.

  97. Our favorite recipe right now is roasted veggies & sausages. It’s so easy too which I’m sure helps it taste that much better. 🙂

  98. I might have just stubbled upon my family’s new favorite recipe!!! It’s Baked Ziti!!!Yes, it’s very simple but when I made this for the first time last month……THE WHOLE DISH WAS GONE!!!! And having somewhat picky eaters, that’s says A LOT!!!! They like it soo much that I now make it about every other week!!!

  99. My favorite family recipe is my great grandma’s sour cream sugar cookies. They are very fluffy and sprinkled with a bit of sugar Cinnamon. An all time favorite of mine!

  101. It is such a simple recipe, but as one I grew up with, my favorite family recipe it beef stroganoff. It is made with some store bought and some homemade ingredients, and it is a dish I will always love!

  102. It’s a cliché – but my mum’s apple pie. The recipe’s nothing special but none of us siblings can replicate it.

  103. My favorite family recipe is my grandmother’s chicken soup recipe. Can’t be a good Jewish mother without the ability to make great chicken soup!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  104. My Nana makes a cake, the only cake i can remember ever liking, so this is my favorite familiy recipe. It’s incredibly moist with a near fudge like frosting. I recently found the recipe, written out by her (she died when i was nine) ! My aunt got in the spirit and attempted the cake. My cousins both had different memories of the cake… so now it’s my turn to try…it’s what I’m to bring to Thanksgiving next year so I best get at perfecting it!

  105. My favorite family recipe is my great grandmother’s pumpkin pie. It’s the best, I really won’t eat any other pumpkin pie.

  107. My very favorite family recipe is a toss up between my Mom’s Pizza soup and my grandmothers datenut roll she made every Christmas. One warms my tummy and the other warms my heart.

  108. A favorite family recipe is tough when you’ve got some picky eaters. Just finding something that everyone will eat is a feat in itself. The first thing that comes to mind is breakfast. The favorite here is pancakes from scratch with homemade syrup, and not even the homemade syrup is a favorite for all, but definitely for 3 out of 6 of us 🙂

  109. We love to eat in our family and love pasta, mexican and ice cream. Love OBB’s Baked Creamy Chicken toquitos. 🙂

  115. Ours is pizza. We make stuffed crust sometimes and love it! It is healthier to make it at home too since we don’t drench it in grease! LOVE IT!

  116. My favorite family recipe is for Navajo Tacos. We make the frybread and chili beans from scratch, and top them with lots of lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and olive. It is time consuming, because we start with dried beans, but the outcome is so worth it.

  117. My favorite family recipe is called Davy Crocket Bars… Yummy!! It’s a mix between a chocolate chip cookie and a brownie.

  118. Our favorite Family Dinner is Stuffed Cabbage! I have an unbelievable recipe that makes the best Stuffed Cabbage ever! My family would take this meal anytime!

  120. I think my favorite family recipe is for Coconut Green Curry or Morrocan Chicken – really anything yummy that my four kids will eat and still tastes like grown up food 🙂

  122. Our favorite family recipe is…hmmm…hard to choose just one and please all 7 of us at the same time…but probably, homemade pizza with a whole wheat crust. We also enjoy OBB’s sugar cookies.

  123. My families favorite food is chicken alfredo with my homemade pasta. Mmmm, that sounds really good right now actually.

  124. My favorite family recipe is when I make my Grandmother’s Famous Chili Sauce every fall; usually about 60 pint bottles, some to enjoy and others to give away.

  126. our favorite family recipe is texas sheet cake… it just gets perfected over the years and is always amaaaaaazing

  127. My favorite family recipe is my mother’s homemade manicotti. The pasta is razor thin and melts in your mouth! Yum!

  128. My favorite family recipe is my homemade chocolate chip cookies. I follow the recipe on the back of the tollhouse chocolate chip package except I add one teaspoon of baking soda (in addition to the baking powder) and instead of two sticks of butter, I use one stick of butter and 1/4 cup of butter-flavored Crisco. Delicious!

  129. My favorite recipe would have to be my mothers homemade spaghetti and meatballs. Its one of the only things my mother could cook and was the first meal I learned to make myself when I became an adult.

    jane1 at cp-tel dot net

  133. My family loves sweet pork tacos. My boys are getting bigger so I may have to start doubling this. It doesn’t last long at our house.

  134. My favorite recipe is my sister-in-laws pasta salad. She makes it with lemon juice, Accent and Lawry’s Seasoning Salt and lets it marinate for 24 hours, or longer and then adds in bell peppers, red onion and olives. What a yummy summer dish.

  135. OMG the Streusel-Topped Blueberry Muffins are amazing really loved them and you can substitute the blueberries for other fruits. Delicious muffins I can eat them every day!!!!

  136. My families favorite? It depends who you ask. Me? I like everything, mostly, not sure about eggplant. Tonight I am making pork chops.

  137. Our family’s favorite would have to be my homemade chicken soup…well homemade except for the boxed broth. The key is chicken baked with lemon slices under the skin and a piece of lemon zest simmered in the soup.

  138. I’m going to have to go either with my grandma’s red velvet cake or her rhubarb pie – both are staples at family get-togethers.

  141. One of my fave family recipes is my mom’s homemade version of a calzone….for rustic, old fashioned sicilian style….yummy!

  142. My favorite, and the most mysterious, family recipe is my dad’s BBQ sauce. There is no written recipe, nor are there any measurements. He does it all by looks and taste. What I wouldn’t do for some of that sauce!!

  143. My favorite recipe has to be my Grandmothers homemade noodles. Now that she is gone they are more special. I can’t wait to teach the recipe to my grandson & granddaughter.

  144. My mother always made banana bread for Christmas. So that is a favorite family recipe! As is my mother’s peanut butter cookies!

  145. Definitely our Moms homemade bread and goulash, that I’ve never been able to get just right. It was hamburger, macaroni noodles, tomatoes, onions and? I never seen the recipe for just ground beef. Would so love to be able to replicate it! Have a blast baking through the cookbook! xo

  149. My favorite family recipe are my Grama’s chocolate chip cookies. She used half crisco and half butter so they were flaky yet soft and she used the chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips. Chunk of chocolate trump chips for sure. They are a reminder of her warm and welcoming house. I miss her, but know that she is watching over me when I bake these cookies, for my dad especially.

  150. My boys love meat loaf and potato salad, which I HATE to make since they are two of the few things I make without following recipes !!!!

  151. Our favorite family recipe is…..hmmmm…..that’s really hard to pick one. I make most often and everyone seems to love my chocolate chip cookes. Boring? No–LOVE. 😉
    I grew up “famous” in my family for rolls at Thanksgiving. The family all call them “fish rolls”–long story.

  152. our favorite family recipe right now is a toss up – coconutty cupcakes, or chocolate protien cake…both a absolutely delicious!
