Favorite flavors are those types of foods that I like the most. These recipes can be united by a single spice, or by a combination of flavors and aromas, or just foods that go well together. The recipes all have that flavor in common, whether they are recipes for desserts, main dishes, salads, side dishes, or sandwiches.

If you have an idea for a Favorite Flavor collection, just write me! I'm always open to new ideas.

Favorite Flavors

  • Garlic
    Garlic is ubiquitous to so many different cuisines. It's delicious whether sprinkled into a marinade, minced into a sauce, or roasted whole for a spread on bread.
  • Honey Mustard
    Honey mustard is the condiment I use most frequently. I always have a couple of jars in the fridge and more in the pantry so I never run out. It's fabulous on everything from grilled chicken to roasted potatoes to just spread on sandwiches.
  • Lemon
    Lemon is the quintessential fruit that pairs well with just about any food. It's delicious with chicken, fish, as an ingredient in soups and salads, and perfect in many dessert recipes. Enjoy these easy lemon recipes.
  • Carbonara
    Carbonara, that classic Italian combination of eggs, cream, bacon, and pasta, is a delicious dish. You can use the sauce to top a pizza or make quesadillas too!
  • Tomato and Basil
    Tomatoes and basil are perfect partners and one of my favorite flavor combinations. From a simple layered appetizer to a delicious pasta frittata, these quick and easy recipes highlight these foods of summer.
  • Pesto
    Pesto is a condiment made of fresh basil leaves, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and olive oil. It's delicious on everything from sandwiches to shrimp. I eat something made with pesto just about every week!
  • Curry
    Curry is a combination of flavors, more specifically a combination of spices and herbs. It's sweet, spicy, hot, and savory all at the same time, and the perfect complement to many foods and recipes.
  • Chocolate and Peanut Butter
    Well, who doesn't like chocolate and peanut butter? This sublime flavor combination is delicious in pies, cakes, cookies, candies, and desserts.
  • Sweet and Sour
    The flavor combination of sweet and sour really hits you where you live. These are two of the five flavors detected by your taste buds. Since the flavors are opposite, they really wake up a recipe.
  • Buffalo Wings
    The flavor of Buffalo Wings is hot and spicy, complemented by savory blue cheese and cream. This flavor translates well into many recipes, including soups and main dishes.
  • Alfredo Recipes
    Alfredo is an Italian sauce made with cream, butter, and cheese. It's delicious on pasta, of course, but also as the base for soups and casseroles.
