Hubpages Cooks: My Favorite Hubpages Recipes!

Collection #1!

One of my favorite things to do is to create awesome meals for my family and friends. That is one of the reasons I really appreciate the hubbers here on Hubpages. Fantastic new recipes are being published here on a daily basis. There is no danger of ever stumbling into a rut (a tired of the same old meal rut) ever. I have tried many of the recipes published here and want to share the ones that have become my favorites.

Maddie Ruud's Crockpot Lasagna; what a great idea... I've been making this ever since I found Maddie's recipe when I first joined Hubpages in 2007. It has become my 'to-go-to' recipe when I'm up to my ears in work and company insists on coming. Served with a salad and some garlic bread...yum what a treat.

You can find this great recipe here ===>

This awesome recipe 'Mexicali surprise'...yum, was added here on Hubpages by my pal Patty Inglish a while back. I make up a triple batch every time and then freeze them in individual one person servings. So great to have quick meals at your fingertips.

This is one of the great recipes you can find in this hub: ===>

Mark Knowle's very own recipe... I must admit it is better then mine. Made it again last week for a small get together. A couple of the my guests asked for the recipe... sorry Mark, wouldn't give it to them... I just smiled mysteriously and took all the credit...BuaaaaHaHa

Don't give me that look people, 'me and I' cooked them, and did a mighty fine job too I might add. Marks recipe is just a piece of paper...right?


Crazyhorsesghost has a ton of recipe hubs but this one is one of my favorites. My first friend here in Canada came from Athens, Greece about the same time as we did. Both of us 15 year old teenagers... you should have seen us talk... neither of us spoke English yet, so armed with our dictionaries, hers Greek/English mine German/English we translated and translated... I believe that that was the strangest mix-up of lingo to date. We became the best of friends and our friendship still goes strong even after 40 some years. To make a short story long, (which I'm famous for), she and her hubby own one of the best Greek restaurants in Toronto. Their Moussaka is to die for... well it was until I made up this recipe for the first time. (I will never tell them that theirs is #2 now but...) this is the one to die for now...

Marye Audet 's Eggs Florentine is my springtime favorite lunch... I impatiently wait for the spinach to be ready in the garden. I admit to having raided the spinach patch on more then one occasion, when the spinach was not much bigger then my thumb and still needing at least a couple of weeks of growing time... An awesome lunch especially when made with fresh free-range chicken eggs.

I found this recipe for Goats cheese soufflé by Princessa when I was hunting for something new to make. The minute I read goats cheese I was hooked. I have made this souffle for myself many times since and usually have it with a fresh from the garden salad. I like it the best with arugula as it's slightly bitter taste really offsets the goats cheese flavor of the souffle to perfection. Most people get scarred away from a soufflé because they worry about it falling. It must be the greatness of this recipe because I haven't had any problems with it yet. Out of the 10-12 times I have made it, it has always worked out to perfection. Mind you I usually just make one for myself, that means that I can eat it the minute its ready and comes out of the oven. If I had goats cheese at home this minute I would be in the kitchen making it because just the thought of it makes me drool.

make sure you try it, here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/French-Cheese-Recipes


I really wish that Alexis Froehlich was still active here on Hubpages. I would really like to let her know that this is the easiest and definitely the best cheesecake to make. I'm ashamed to admit that even though it's as rich as can be I would be up for a two piece serving any and every day. Totally delish... I must think of a reason to invite a few friends over for dinner next week, just so I have an excuse to make one of these hubalicious creation.

Golden Cod with mushrooms and Port wine is a recipe that Funride, my young friend from Portugal has published here on Hubpages. Some of the main ingredients are fish, mushrooms and port wine. I absolutely love fish, mushrooms and port wine, so I ask you, how can this not be a super duper recipe. Although the recipe calls for cod I have made it by substituting Tilapia, trout, pickerel or salmon for the cod. Whatever type of fresh fish was available I used it. The recipe tastes great with each one of the fish. The cod just seems to be a bit more solid and easier to dish out then the Tilapia. I remedied that by using individual serving sized oven safe dishes when using Tilapia.

you have to give this one a try, here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Portuguese-Recipes



Viking305 who joined Hubpages not very long ago has published a fabulous hub. I look forward to reading many more of her hubs, especially if she is going to make them as great as this one 'Sultana Irish Soda Bread Recipe' . I made a batch and froze half last weekend but I regret to say that the one from the freezer somehow evaporated too. My friend, who came over for a morning cup of coffee, and I almost polished off the whole loaf for breakfast. It was absolutely awesome with homemade peach jam.

I know I will be making this recipe over and over many times. I will have to taste test it on my gang, but I know them well enough that I can say that it will go over really well with them too.

get to it here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-make-Irish-Soda-Bread-recipes-and-tips


Every year I try a couple of new recipes which if my gang likes will go onto our "Must-Make-For-Christmas" list. This one has since been added. The 'Broken Glass' candy was what disappeared from the Christmas table first. My granddaughters liked it so much that they asked me to make them some for Easter we made them in more pastel colors. Audrey, akirchner has quite a few interesting recipes published here on Hubpages.

Habee, you must try these recipes they're all super duper. I'm visiting my granddaughters this coming weekend and the girls asked if we could make the Sultana Irish soda bread. We'll be using a lot more raisins then the recipe requires... I know that in advance.

Hope you and the family are all okay

Thanks for asking, I´m fine now that my hands are done with surgeries (at least I hope so) and I´m able to do everything I did before. Being able to ride my bikes again and working full-time makes me feel like it never happened... my injuries left me some scars and major wrist stiffness but they also made me stronger after what I have learned going through it :)

And I´ll never forget how being here at Hubpages have helped me climbing through the rockiest times. Thank you all!

I´m grateful, for my life, my family, and for all the good friends I have ;)

Have fun!

Funride how are you my young friend? How are the hands? Life treating you okay? Your recipe has become one of my fave fish dishes. It's totally the best with cod (your original) but as I said also good with the other types of fish too.

greetings from beautiful Canada

Hey Zsuzsy, so nice of you to include my hub on this great collection :)

I´m glad you liked the cod with mushrooms and Port, it´s great you did some experiences with it - I´m sure it can be as good using other kinds of fish.

Take care ;)

Wow, thanks! That is a super chowder recipe, if I do say so myself :)

And if you enjoyed that one, I've collected all the recipes I've published on HubPages into one convenient location that I plan to update as I create more. The hub is cleverly entitled "Edweirdo's Cook Book" if you want to check it out!

Great hub Zsuzy!
