Last night, for whatever reason, I was craving quiche so I went off the the grocery store and got the missing ingredients. I swaer, it was the most delicious thing I ever made (i ate half of it last night).
Tenderflake Pie Pastry
1.5 cups 1% milk
8 strips of bacon (diced and cooked until crispy, save the grease)
1 medium yellow onion, diced – cook in the bacon drippings
2 cloves garlic
1 cup cooked broccoli
1/4 cup monterey jack cheese
salt, pepper, & nutmeg
Prepare the pasty. Layer onions, bacon, broccoli in bottom of prepared crust. lightly beat eggs and milk, add spices, pour into pie crust. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes. Let sit for 10 before cutting.

No idea what the best meal I ever made was (I cook a lot), but the best slow cooker recipe I’ve ever tried still makes my mouth water when I think about it!
We tried it a few weeks ago and it is sooo tasty: http://canopi.com/content/2013/3/26/slow-cooker-salisbury-steaks/

Everytime we make this recipe, FI and I have to refrain from eating the full 2+ lbs of beef (we always double or triple the recipe!)
The first time, we made it with McSorley’s beer and it was DIVINE
Forgot what cut of beef we used, though.

I am so excited for this thread.
Here’s my best meal:
Appie: Coconut curry mussels
Main: Pork tenderloin stuffed with goat cheese apples pine nuts and rosemary served with a maple balsamic reduction
Sides: mushroom risotto and green beans with pancetta
Dessert: White chocolate bread pudding
Drinks: copious amounts of wine

1 large chicken breast, thinly sliced
1 can of coconut milk
red curry paste (more or less depending on your love of spice
1 tbl of fish sauce
1tbl of soy sauce or coconit aminos if you’re gf like me
2 baby bok Choy chopped up
2 carrots, shredded or julienned
1/4 lb of shittake mushrooms. Sliced
1 small sliced onion
1 can of water chestnuts, sliced.
In wok or large skillet put milk, fish sauce, curry and soy sauce. Mix up. Bring to simmer, add chicken and onions. simmer until chicken is slightly cooked, about 3-5 minutes. add veggies, cover to steam veggies, about 5-10 minutes. Remove lid and let water from veggies cook off. This should take about 20 minutes, and the sauce will be reduced.
Serve warm over rice with fresh spring rolls.
Best at meal we have ever made. At least in recent memory 🙂

Hmmm…no idea, I guess it depends on what your favorite food is. I’ve made lots of delicious things (I cook and bake a LOT).
DH favorites are pizza and chili I think. I do love pizzas.
I do have a shrimp vindaloo recipe that I love. I add a few potatoes and cream or milk at the end to make it creamier. I might add a little more heat too.
Now for baking…I would probably go with a lemon raspberry cheesecake and cream-cheese filled croissants. They’re my favorites at least.

My FI and I together make a mean Chicken Mascarpone Marsala (based off the Giada recipe), but everyone in the family says my Chicken Fettucine Alfredo is the best they’ve ever tasted.

According to my SO, it would be my spaghetti bolognese. I use the same sauce for my lasagna but he likes it as spaghetti better – I beg to differ! I like to use a bit of smokey bacon to enhance the flavour and I pour in plenty of red wine! Oh, and I add a little knob of butter at the end to make it more unctuous. YUM! ^.^

Definitely this broccoli-cheddar soup (without the carrots):
It’s one of my go-to recipes and everyone loves it – even if they don’t like broccoli (:

@adoc86: this one is super good cold too (had leftovers for lunch today)

@jesssamesssa: it’s not overly oniony. By cooking them in the bacon they get super sweet, I didn’t completely carmelize them because I’m lazy but it was definitely more sweet than onion.

I cook all the time, but my husband would probably say dim sum night. I make pot stickers, cha sao bao, scallion pancakes, egg rolls, etc. (all family recipes) He also likes chicken masala, quiche, pizza, and ramen with beef.
Desserts for me are pretty varied too, chocolate cake, red velvet cake, blueberry custard pie and pumpkin cheesecake are probably his favorite; especially if we get a really good sugar pumpkin. Feel free to PM me if you want any recipes.
