Tasty Attempts: Favorite Repeat Dishes

I am now posting Tasty Attempts every other Tuesday. The posts will include a variety of recipes, maybe some of them turn out tasty, maybe others are failed attempts.
So I have been posting Tasty Attempts every other week (for the most part) for quite some time and I have come across some really great recipes.  Lately I haven't been making new ones at home but have been revisiting some of our favorites, so I thought I would share a couple of my go-to favorite recipes that I have featured on Tasty Attempts.
This is a recipe I had been using before I started posting recipes here and it is a simple go to favorite for the whole family.  I have even gotten comfortable enough with the recipe to start making changes to it, last time I added mushrooms and some peas to it.
These are another go to favorite, especially on the weekend when we sometimes have a lot of company.  I just made them 2 weekends ago for 7 people and it was an inexpensive but tasty dish that we could make reasonably quickly.
Another fast, easy dish that I usually have the ingredients on hand to make. I have adjusted the salt level and now only use the parmesan cheese and a little sprinkling of a basil sea salt mix I have for a little added flavor.  This is another dish that the whole family enjoys and can be paired with any veggie you have on hand and maybe a side dish of pasta or rice if there are extra mouths to feed.
This is a simple recipe I keep going to because it is easy for Munchkin to get involved with cooking and is easy to eat like a sandwich (and makes for a super simple school lunch). I love this for a fast weeknight dinner when I am feeling especially lazy but refuse to cook anymore Mac & Cheese or chicken nuggets for Munchkin.
So there are just a few of our go to favorites from Tasty Attempts, we have several more dinners that fall back on when creativity is running low.  What are some of your favorite go to dinners?


  1. Oh my! Those crispy black bean and rice burritos look sooooo yummy.

    1. They are so insanely good, and a great option for a meatless day but still have protein.
