I'm trying to inspire myself to cook more and try more recipes so...

Just like the title says, what is your one favourite dish?

It can be anything from salad, to entree to dessert.

Also if you have it and are willing to share, please post the recipe so others can try it too!

Very easy lasagna:

Put some jarred sauce in the bottom of a baking dish, put a layer of ravioli (cheese, meat, whatever you like), some shredded cheese & parmesan if you like, a little sauce, more ravioli, etc....end with cheese on top and bake in oven at about 375 degrees for 25 minutes covered and 10 minutes uncovered.

Cheating and doing two

These are sooooo good. And sooooo cheesy and just as good as leftovers. It's pretty much awful for you but I just love it so much.



Creamy Cheesy Potatoes

And one desert! This is my go to for making a desert for someone or an occasion. Peanut butter, chocolate and brownies. Does it get better?



Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe

I have a lot of other favorite recipes if you're ever interested Michiyo! I've been trying to cook a lot more this past year. I use my Crockpot a TON.

Do I have to pick one?

That might be this (made at Christmas... chestnust chocolate Yule log)



Or this (profiteroles)



Or this (Galette des Rois, basically puffed pastry with frangipane)



Neither of which I tend to make much at all because, well, calorie bombs.

Obviously that's only the stuff I can make, otherwise it would be a very, very long list (and pretty much all sweets, yes).

Thanks for all the replies! I'll add some of my favourite recipes too.

Zesty Quinoa Salad This is by far the best quinoa salad recipe we've tried.

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 limes, juiced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste
1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
5 green onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
salt and ground black pepper to taste

1. Bring quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.
2. Whisk olive oil, lime juice, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl.
3. Combine quinoa, tomatoes, black beans, and green onions together in a bowl. Pour dressing over quinoa mixture; toss to coat. Stir in cilantro; season with salt and black pepper. Serve immediately or chill in refrigerator.


Panna Cotta So easy and so delicious. I usually make it with a mixed berry coulis with frozen berries, a dash of vanilla and sugar.

1/3 cup skim milk
1 (.25 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Pour milk into a small bowl, and stir in the gelatin powder. Set aside.
2. In a saucepan, stir together the heavy cream and sugar, and set over medium heat. Bring to a full boil, watching carefully, as the cream will quickly rise to the top of the pan. Pour the gelatin and milk into the cream, stirring until completely dissolved. Cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla and pour into six individual ramekin dishes.
3. Cool the ramekins uncovered at room temperature. When cool, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight before serving.

Edit: I also make a really good Shepherd's Pie (with ground beef instead of lamb), spaghetti aglio e olio, a very simple tomato, basil and mozzarella spaghetti too. If anyone wants the recipes let me know

I make this Four Cheese Rigatoni that is to die for.

If you like cheese this dish is heaven.

You can find the recipe here: http://www.howsweeteats.com/2012/03/four-cheese-baked-skillet-rigatoni/

It is only one of many favorites though :)
The rigatoni looks fantastic! The bf looooves mac and cheese so I suspect he will love this! The only thing is I don't see gruyere much in my supermarkets here. I use it often in the UK but don't use it in Canada since it doesn't seem as readily available. I will have to dig around.

We make a breakfast sausage pinwheel thing for events where we need "finger foods". It's very simple.

You need:

1 Refrigerated pizza crust (like the Pillsbury canned ones)
1 Pound of your favorite breakfast sausage (we have great results with Bob Evans)
McCormick Italian spices (basically oregano, thyme and basil)
Garlic Powder
Optionally: shredded cheddar cheese (or cheese of your choice)

Open up the pizza crust and square it up (well, rectangle it ;) )
Open the package of sausage and pinch off small pieces and place it onto the pizza crust. Cover all of it leaving perhaps 1/2 inch on one of the short edges. The entire pound should cover the crust pretty well. Try to be as even as possible.
Once all of the sausage is on the crust, cover liberally with the spice mix and sprinkle with the garlic powder. Adjust the spices according to your own taste.
If you choose to use cheese, sprinkle shredded cheese over the entire thing.

Starting from the edge that doesn't have the gap, roll the crust up tightly (similar to a classic jelly roll). Once it's rolled up, press down on the trailing edge (that shouldn't have sausage on it) to seal the entire thing.

With a sharp knife, slice the roll in approximately 1/2" to 3/4" thicknesses. I generally use the last joint in my thumb as a guide to make them even. Roll the entire thing between slices to keep it from getting flat on any one side.

Lay the slices on an ungreased baking sheet. They don't expand much, so 1/2" to 1" of space between should be plenty. Bake according to the directions on the pizza crust. When they are done, the crust will be a nice golden-brown color.

These are great fresh and hot or even cold from the fridge. They reheat very well.

Not my photo, but they should look similar to this:

Add to the top - slivered strawberries standing up like stalagmites and drizzle with reduced balsamic vinegar. I also add lemon zest to the recipe.
