I am always interested in trying something new. What are your favorite meals and where did you get the recipe for it?

I enjoy food too much to choose one favorite! I love to cook, bake and especially experiment with food! If I had to choose, my home made tacos are probably my favorite but my hubby loves my Rolled Cabbage. The Taco recipe is my Mom's and the Rolled Cabbage is my late Great Aunt Penny's. Tacos: 2 lbs. meat, browned & seasoned 2 packages of taco seasoning 10 large flour shells 2-3 tomatoes, diced 1 onion, diced 1/2 head of lettuce, shredded 1 package of shredded cheese (preferred kind) sour cream taco sauce salsa jalepenos (all toppings are optional, as preferred) Brown 2 pounds of ground beef (turkey is a fine substite for weight watchers), drain and add 2 packages of taco seasoning and water (as directed) to simmer. While the meat is browning, I start washing and cutting the fresh vegetables including; tomatoes, lettuce, and onion. While the meat simmers, I start heating a bit of oil for frying flour tortilla shells. They turn out really crispy this way like a taco bowl. You can just warm them for a lower fat recipe or bake corn shells if you prefer them. Be sure to have tongs ready for flipping the shells and plenty of paper towels to soak up excess oil. The shells are fried one at a time. I lie the shell flat in the hot oil until they start puffing up and then fold them as they're flipped, frying the shell on both (folded) sides. Once the shells are ready, they can be filled with meat, veggies, cheese and topped with desired toppings. Sour cream and taco sauce is a must for us but some people like salsa too. ENJOY! Taco leftover recipes: I usually buy Doritos or tortilla chips to make taco salad with the leftovers. You just omit the shells and put everything on top of the chips instead! Sometimes I might make a taco-bake by layering the chips, refried beans, meat and cheese into a rectangle casserole dish and bake until heated/cheese melted, then add veggies, sour cream, sauce and/or salsa and serve! I've gotten lazier with my **Rolled Cabbage and instead of rolling ingredients into cabbage leaves, I just chop the cabbage up and make it like a soup instead. Well, we just chop the rolls up into our dish before eating it anyway so I figured it would save me time cooking and us time eating! CABBAGE SOUP 2 lbs. ground beef browned and drained (or turkey) 2 cans of tomato juice cabbage 1 1/2 cups white rice *seasoning (as desired) *I like to use garlic powder/fresh garlic, onions/onion soup mix/minced onions whichever is handy, parsley, pepper, salt, and Goya. **If I'm rolling the cabbage, it has to be blanched first and leaves removed and cooled periodically. Also, I use quicker 10 minute rice. Brown, season and drain the meat. Chop about a half head of cabbage (or as desired). Combine meat, uncooked rice, tomato juice and cabbage into a crock-pot or stock-pot on low and simmer all day until cabbage becomes tender. Serve and eat! Garlic bread or salad is also complimentary to this dish.

Oops, I forgot to continue directions for rolling the cabbage! ** For Rolled Cabbage, you blanch and seperate the leaves, as I said previously. Combine seasoned meat, rice and a little tomato juice~not so much that it's soupy! Add the meat combo by handfuls into each cabbage leaf, leaving space to roll closed and roll/fold it closed. Place each roll, folded side down, into a baking dish or crock-pot and when you're out of room or ingredients, pour tomato juice over rolls to cover them. Bake at 300-350 degrees for approximately 3 hours or slow cook them all day in a crock.

Porc roast - Porc roast is my favorite
Porc roast with the crust and homemade gravy and potatoe dumplings and peas and carrots is my favorite. I did not get a recipe, my mom has made it, my grandma has made it and my great-grandma, too. we often had it on sundays and I could eat three plates full. It was my favorite food in my childhood and it still is.

I looove dumplings. My mom can make a killer beef stew with potatoes and dumplings. She uses Bisquik mix and makes in in the stew gravy. HER mom makes THE best smothered potatoes ever! No one that's ever tried it has not liked it.
