  1. I think I posted my comment on the wrong post! I commented before that I really like your cream of chicken soup, completely forgot your white chicken chili. One of my sons prefer it to my traditional chili! Wishing you and yours a merry and blessed Christmas!

  2. Congratulations!! One of my favorite recipes is your scalloped potatoes. Have made them several times for family dinners. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a great prize!!

  3. A favorite recipe of mine is the Classic Vanilla Buttercream frosting. While visiting my granddaughters this summer, they wanted to make a Birthday cake for their twin sisters. Not being in my home kitchen, I Googled a recipe and yours came up. We had fun making it together and I think it was the best vanilla buttercream frosting I have made. i think it was all the beating!

  4. Your best chocolate cake recipe is always a hit! I make it for birthdays for my girls and upon request from family because it’s just that delicious! I have tried other delicious recipes, but there’s something about your chocolate cake recipe my family has come to enjoy! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas and God bless!

  5. The Best White Cake Layer (ever) Recipe using the all buttermilk variation. My new favorite! Also planning to try soon the Perfect French Toast and the Cinnamon Rolls!

  6. I’m new to Add A Pinch. So far, I have only tried one recipe, but I loved it: Cinnamon Apple Muffins Recipe. That is, I’m a “healthfood”-type person, so I had to modify the recipe for my dietary needs. I used whole wheat organic flour, organic apples, and coconut oil (instead of butter). I also added 1 Cup of dried cranberries and 1/2 C flaxseed. For a topping, I stuck a few pieces of toasted coconut on the top of each muffin. Cinnamon is so healthful, and these muffins call for a lot of cinnamon. The original recipe gave me a great starting place for my substituions and add-ons. Thank you!

  7. I loved your recipe for sweet potato casserole that you posted along with a plan for doing Thanksgiving dinner a few each day and either freezing or refrigerating items ahead of time so no or much less stress on Thanksgiving Day. You were so right and I have never been so organized in my life! It was great and I will do Thanksgiving around your plan for as long as I’m able to cook. Oh and BTW, the sweet potatoes were very good much better than the way I had done them. Thanks for everything and Merry Christmas to all.

  8. First of all, Congrats!
    It’s too hard to name just one favorite recipe; however, right now I’m craving your SLOW COOKER HOT CRAB DIP–yum!
    Best wishes for continued success and a joyous holiday season.

  9. Congrats! My whole family loves your recipes and cookbook. Im going to say that the easy blackened catfish is my favorite because it really is do simple and tasty. I keep your blackening seasoning ready in my pantry now.
    PS My oldest daughter says that your pound cake recipe is the best.

  10. My husband LOVES your meat loaf recipe. He was browsing the book when I first got it and said that was one we had to try. Now he requests it often and the kids love it, too. So it is a win win for me! Thank you! For a wonderful book! I’m hoping to give my new daughter-in-law a copy of your book soon.

  11. But but but… how do I choose just one?! I suppose if I absolutely have to choose just one it would be your white chicken chili. By far the best I’ve ever had! Congrats on making the tops list!!!

  12. Your book looks wonderful! Congratulations! You have so many marvelous recipes it’s hard to choose ‘one’ favorite. However, I have an enormous sweet tooth and love cake, so I’ll go with the Best Chocolate Cake Ever. Love making (and eating) that one! Especially with the Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. The deep chocolate and espresso flavors delights my taste buds!

  13. Although all the recipes are wonderful – delicious – right at this moment the Best Chocolate Cake Ever
    is on top of my list… how can you go wrong with chocolate… Thank you for sharing so many delicious
    easy to prepare recipes…YUM!!

  14. So hard to choose a favorite but this time of year it would be your Pumpkin Pie & Scalloped Potatoes! Both grace our table at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Congrats on your book success—well deserved!

  15. The pecan pie recipe is my new go to. I sometimes like adding dark chocolate to mix things up. I have not found another recipe that I love as much

  16. I have picked up this book many times and put it back down. Don’t ask me why. I do want it and love looking at cookbooks. I have made a few of your recipes but cannot recall which ones right now. LOL I would love to win a copy. I have printed three recipes off your site to make this weekend for gifts. Congratulations! Love your website.

  17. Scalloped potatoes…I love anything potato! I actually borrowed the book from a friend so I could try the recipe, so it would be nice to win my own copy!

  18. My favorite recipe is your classic vanilla butter cream frosting. I used it when I made a 50th anniversary cake for my aunt and uncle’s party with the extended family. Their kids didn’t really do anything to celebrate this incredible occasion for them so I decided to make them a wedding cake for the party that the rest of us had for them. They loved it! Thank you.

  19. Congratulations! I’ve sent your cookbook as a Christmas gift this year! I do love your Best Chocolate Cupcake recipe. Thanks and Merry Christmas!

  20. I made The Best Chocolate Cake Ever recipe and took it to work. It was a big hit! Congratulations and thank you for this opportunity!

  21. My favourite Add a Pinch recipe is EGGPLANT PARMESAN RECIPE. I hadn’t wanted to make this before, but the photos were so enticing.

  22. My mom loves your PASTA FAGIOLI RECIPE! I made it for her and she lit up. It is so important to make things your family loves!
