Here at Allrecipes HQ, we love making your recipes, and reading your reviews. Some of you are such avid reviewers and posters, we almost feel like we know you! Not surprisingly, when you work in food, you talk about food all day, and we love testing out your recipes on our family and loved ones. Many of these become our treasured favorites. We did a quick poll of the Allrecipes staff and here are just a few of those recipes that we love making again and again.
Weeknight dinners we love
"This is probably the AR recipe I return to the most. It’s a super tasty and satisfying soup that is actually a true one-pot meal. I add extra lime juice and chipotle in adobo for additional flavor, but the base recipe is a great staple." -- Maggie, Senior Campaign Manager, Ad Operations
"Easy tacos that require just a few ingredients but have great flavor," says Ingrid on our Marketing Team. She loves making this popular recipe for her family.
When a recipe has been made and reviewed over 2,000 times, you know it's a keeper. "Delicious and my kids eat it." -- Syd, Senior Director of Growth
Olivia our team lead in Community Support makes this recipe regularly and says, "I love this recipe because it is a delicious weeknight dinner and I would never think of it myself."
"This is our family's favorite for a weekday dinner: it is easy, nutritious, flavorful. All three teenagers love it! For me and my daughter it's all we need for a good dinner (vegetarian/ vegan). The boys like to grill a couple of sausages to make it a bigger meal. Everybody is happy." -- Elena, Metadata Taxonomist.
Lorraine, our Sr. Social Media Manager raves "Fantastic! I love the dressing. I add some poached chicken breast to make it a full dinner. I use a sharp white cheddar instead of goat cheese. Super easy & great flavor."
Our favorite breakfasts, breads, and cakes
Are you on the hunt for the perfect pancake recipe? We've found it! "It took me 30 years to find a pancake recipe that consistently made fluffy, melt in your mouth pancakes. This is that recipe." -- Syd, Senior Director of Growth
Richard, Director of Audience Development, doesn't mince words when he talks about this recipe, "I ALWAYS use this for biscuits"
This banana bread has been made over 13,000 times! "Janet makes hers with sour cream which is key for the ultimate moist bread," according to Katie, our Senior Content Manager
But, wait for it -- this one has been made over 21, 000 times. It's so popular in our office that we've even named a meeting room in its honor. Ingrid, on our Marketing team says,"the banana flavor is wonderful and I trick myself into thinking it’s healthy because it uses 5 bananas."
Our go-to potluck recipes
The office potluck usually features one or more of these recipes.
"It’s a proven crowd pleaser! I do make one change and add 1 cup of plain yogurt—to try to dilute the calories. Ha! -- Judith, Sr Communications Mgr, Allrecipes Core Marketing.
"I hadn’t heard of this dish until I started working here -- such a crowd pleaser." -- Sonja, Project Manager.
"Baked wings -- so good, they taste like they’re fried" -- Sonja, Project Manager.
Lorraine Goldberg on our social team loves this recipe, however she did create it herself. You might think she's biased, but having devoured more than my fare share of these salty, boozy, sweet treat at office gatherings, I will testify they are phenomenal.
Esmee, VP/Consumer & Brand Strategy, who has been with Allrecipes since it was a cookie sharing site, of course picks a cookie as her tried and tested recipe. It's a definite keeper that you'll want to make again and again.
