March Re-Make Recap

Two of my favorite bloggers, Cassie from Cassie Craves and Stephanie from Stephanie Cooks, have started doing a recap at the end of the month of dishes from their blogs that they've remade that month. What a great idea - incentive for me to look back through my blog and remake some favorite recipes.

I can't remember why I got it into my head that I needed to make biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast one weekend but I did and it was glorious. I love this recipe because of the addition of maple syrup - it brings the flavor over the top with just a little sweetness that's counterbalanced by the hot sauce. If only it wasn't so unhealthy I'd eat it more often.

Baked Chicken Burrito

These baked chicken burritos with sour cream poblano sauce are, hands down, my favorite burrito recipe. My favorite part is the sour cream poblano sauce, although the filling is also delicious. This time I made Baby Girl a little mini burrito by cutting a smaller circle out of the large tortilla. She was a big fan.

Oyster tofu

Oyster sauce tofu with bok choy is one of my favorite tofu recipes. The sauce is silky and rich and the flavors all come together beautifully. Plus it's chock-full of veggies. And the best part - Baby Girl really surprised me while we were preparing this for dinner. She's a good eater but lately she's been asking me if she can taste things when she's helping me cook, instead of me telling her she needs to try things. She sampled the raw mushrooms (I had to sub cremini for the shitake because our supermarket was out of the latter), the raw baby bok choy and the kid loves raw tofu for some bizarre reason. Then she cleaned her plate with no fuss.

Philly cheesesteak sloppy joes are, by far, the most popular recipe on my blog (thank you, Pinterest). It's been a long time since we had them so after two different blogger friends made and posted about them I figured it was time to make them again.

And every month until May when the weather gets too hot to turn my oven to 550 degrees we have homemade pizza with various toppings.

Pin It!


  1. I do a recap of all the new recipes that I made during the month but I hadn't thought about doing the recipes that I have already posted that I make during the month. I know that it does help me pull up stuff that I really love to make again!! Thanks for the great idea :) Plus, the philly cheesteak sloppy joes have been changed into french dip sloppy joes at my house and are going to try to get on the menu next month!!

    1. I'll have to check out the French Dip Sloppy Joes on your blog!

  2. I was secretly hoping you would start doing this. ;) Love it!

    1. I haven't before mainly because I don't remake things often. I'm trying to be better about it because we really like some of the things I've made and new stuff is always iffy. This was the push I needed. Of course this week it's all new stuff...oops!

  3. This is my first time to your blog, and I'm kind of happy that the first post I read is a recap. I love that baked chicken burrito and that tofu recipe. Looking forward to lurking in your blog. :)

  4. I LOVE doing these recaps because I find it really forces me to remake some stuff!
