I don’t cook much any more since my husband loves to but when I do I make a huge pot of tomato sauce and make spaghetti.

Jackie Stevens says
I enjoy preparing lasagna, green salad and bread for my family. Great for leftovers.
In the winter my favorite meal to cook is made-from-scratch soups. My favorites being chicken dumpling and also cream of mushroom. Along side it I will sometimes make home-baked bread or dinner rolls. I make chili quite often in the colder months as well, and like pairing that with white corn meal corn bread, served warm with Wisconsin/local pure maple syrup or honey.
During the warm seasons we grill out a lot. I love making marinated chicken kabobs or beef tenderloin on the grill, along side grilled, foil-wrapped sliced red potatoes from my brother-in-law’s potato field, with lots of butter, sweet bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and some of our favorite seasonings added to the mixture for taste: Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt, Watkins Garlic Pepper Seasoning, Lawry’s Seasoning Salt, etc.
For something more “fun”, we will make homemade pizzas… I either make the crust from scratch or buy pre-made crusts (depending on time and if I have the energy, LOL), and we use my home-canned pizza sauce (if there’s any left in the pantry). Then top them with whatever toppings we want on them. This is such a good, tasty and fun meal for eating while watching a movie or something.
Sorry so lengthy… I love cooking, baking, canning… and this is a topic I really enjoy talking about!
Carole A says

Chicken and Dumplings or Chicken and homemade noodles. Always a hit.
Jackie C says
Since I live alone and am doing the dirty lazy keto diet, my favorite meal is a pizza casserole.. I fix it in a 9 x 12 pan so I have about 8 meals. It’s yummy and keeps me on track.
Gonna have to go with spaghetti 🍝
Favorite meal: Instant Pot a whole chicken, baked potatoes (cooked in the microwave), green beans, tossed salad, fresh fruit for dessert.
Rochelle Summers says
For me, this time of year, it’s soup….a huge pot that lets me have several meals, some for the freezer for later (I have a lot of variety in the freezer so a different kind every night). I save leftover juice from roasts, boil up chicken bones for the juice and make great soups. Also have a very quick and easy recipe for Taco Soup that can be whipped together in less than half an hour. I do love cream soups (Minnesota Wild Rice Soup and Chicken Corn Chowder) but only have those once a season because of the calories and they don’t freeze.
Sandra T says
Tacos – because they’re quick and easy and my kids love them!
Angie Terry says
I love to cook great big pots of soup. I freeze it in smaller containers for quick meals later on.
Thai peanut noodles. And when I’m eating low carb I substitute cauliflower for the noodles or broccoli
Beth T. says
Thanks for getting me thinking about this. I make mushroom enchiladas in a verde sauce that is delicious and really easy and is great when reheated. I should make them soon and freeze some.
My current (quick) favourite meal is to make tortillas a la me: I fry up onion, and any veg or leftovers. Add spices, then add beans/lentils or similar (depending what’s there). Heat through. Sometimes I add grated cheese and/or (pine)apple. Warm wraps, and serve to be assembled at the table. One of the few meals everyone in my house loves! I get glutenfree wraps for my son who has coeliac disease, and it’s vegetarian for my other son (though you can add meat if you prefer). And it’s quicker than writing it down here 😉
A lot of soup in the winter. One of the favorites is Black Bean Salsa.
Pam S says
I can’t say it’s my favorite, but my granddaughter loves tater tot casserole. So that’s what we make at least once a week when she visits, I’m looking forward to Project Quilting!

Pam Hennessey says

Rosalie Joehnk says
I like to bread turkey cutlets with panko crumbs and fry them. Serve with a veg and salad (we are doing low carb so no potatoes- otherwise they would be there in some form!)
Sandy Phillips says
My favorite meal to cook is a pot roast with carrots, red potatoes, and onions all at once and it is so moist. That was for dinner for breakfast I love to make dutch baby so simple and not as heavy as pancakes
I like to make soup, mostly I make what my husband calls “fart soup” which is a variant of chicken soup, but it has a ton of kale, onions and white beans in it. 🙂

Crockpot pot roast… Then the leftovers get cooked into a beefy chunk vegetable stew.
Mary Willis says
Chicken piccata and broccoli pasta! Delish!
Green pizza….crust, pesto, spinach leaves, broccoli, red onion, green or black olives, black beans & sometimes corn
Sprinkle a bit of feta or parmesan

Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes!
Pamela Wall says
I love cooking for my family. As an empty-nester it is such a treat to have them here when they all come home. I always make the foods of their childhood which are unavailable in other parts of the country: Norwegian meatballs, lefse, and all the fixings. It’s like Christmas!
Can’t go wrong with my favorite, macaroni and cheese. Add ham, or serve fish sticks on the side. Finish it off with peas and a salad.
Diane Beavers says
Sauté Shrimp in olive oil, garlic, sprinkle with Parmesan and squeeze lemon juice on top just as you remove it from the heat source. Serve w a green veggie-grilled asparagus, roasted broccoli perhaps.

Cathy C says
I have to say my favorite meal to make is a big breakfast scramble
Lisa England says
I have a long list of favorites, but I think you are looking for easy meals to increase quilting time, so here’s one. Put 4 boneless chicken breasts, 1 can each of black beans and corn (both drained), some diced peppers and onions, and 1 jar of salsa (16 oz) in a crock pot and cook about 6 to 8 hours on low. I serve this over cooked rice with grated colby jack cheese sprinkled on top. Lots of time to sew while it cooks!
Sue singer says
I like to cook tri tip on bbq
Gotta be grown-up mac and cheese.
kristie jarchow says
