My Top Found "Make It Again"-Worthy Recipes

The Food Network, a television channel dedicated to food culture and bringing culinary education to the masses, launched in 1991. I am 99% sure that I've been watching since day 1 at the very conscious age of 2. Early shows like Two Fat Ladies and chefs such as Sarah Moulton were part of my after-school and Saturday morning line up, right along with Power Rangers and Sailor Moon. Practically everything I know about cooking comes courtesy of the Food Network.

For a long time I aspired to be a famous chef and restaurant owner. When the Disney Channel Original Movie Eddie's Million Dollar Cook Off premiered with Bobby Flay I felt part of a special club because I knew who that was! You could find me in cooking clubs sponsored by my school and baking competitions at picnics. I almost opted for technical school to pursue culinary arts in high school. In the end I choose the business route, and that didn't fair well, but I have always been interested in everything food.

Lately though there hasn't been as much time or my own space to make in. Pinterest has become a significant part of my culinary experience allowing me to simultaneously research and hoard quick and approved recipes. Today I'm dishing out some of my favorite repeat recipes from the internet to share my adoration in a different way.

My Top Found "Make Again"-Worthy Recipes - a roundup of favorite Pinterest recipes that are definitely worth making again

Main Meals & Entrées

Man Pleasin' Chicken
The appropriately named Man Pleasin' Chicken has a unique sauce that is out of this world! If you don't have fresh rosemary, no worries. Add a little less than the recipe calls for of crushed up dried rosemary and you're good to go. From Witty In the City

Fish & Chips
Beer-battered Fish & Chips without the beer!? Yes! This recipe offers the insanely helpful option of using soda water instead. The batter is perfect leaving the fish crispy and oh-so-tasty. Now that I know I will never EVER look back. From RockRecipes.com
Take out that random pasta maker and put some effort into Homemade Spinach Pasta. This recipe requires some muscle but is totally worth it. Reward your hard work with double topping of your favorite store-bought red AND white sauces. You'll have Italy in the palm of your hand. From Hubpages

Thoroughly diggin' on Asian-inspired food right now. Bonus if it's quick and simple. Enter this P.F. Chang's copycat recipe for Chicken Lettuce Wraps which uses ground chicken. From Damn Delicious <<< P.S. She's AMAZING.

Hey this one is actually from Food Network haha! My mouth is watering right now just thinking about some Fried Chicken Salad. I prefer nuts (pecans, walnuts) to the veggies in this recipe, but to be honest all you really need is the fried chicken and cayenne. SO GOOD. From Damaris Phillips (Southern at Heart)


This recipe makes my life. It's cake in the microwave! I have it for breakfast about 3 times a month. Not an applesauce fan? Swap it out for equal amounts (2 Tablespoons each) of your favorite instant oatmeal and hot water. From Heather Likes Food


Nothing like the perfect dessert: classy, simple, and still looks like you slaved all day. These Cranberry Tea Cookies fit the bill perfectly. They are a perfect potluck or new neighbor gift. Or eat the whole batch yourself. I won't judge. From Lisa Is Bossy

Another perfect dessert recipe that meets my criteria is this one for Mini Cheesecake Cupcakes. I like to go the semi-homemade route (if you couldn't tell) by making the cheesecakes from a box recipe then topping with homemade caramel and, of course, sea salt. Or switch it up with homemade cheesecake and pre-made sauce. Either way they'll always be a hit. From Cooking Classy

Well, if I were clever there would have been pictures of me having actually made these. I was too busy eating them. Sorry not sorry. I guess you'll just have to go make them for yourself. Eat hearty, my friends!

Kristyn here. I'm really good at Googling, dreaming, and thinking outside the box. Someday I'm going to save all the puppies and perform on a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade float.
