Top 10 from 2021, thanks to all of you!

The year 2021 is winding down, and it is easy to see from the many comments on social media it has been a year of mixed emotions and accomplishments. But just as important is that we all took the time to learn more. We learned more about ourselves, took on learning new skills, and for many, we took on learning a new way of seeing and enjoying life. 

This list of the Top 10 from 2021 shows some of all that...the skills, our needs, and our families. Thank you kindly from the bottom of my heart for your continued visits, and your kind comments. I look forward to celebrating this upcoming new year in the company of your kindness, bless you all! I am proud of this list of good food and making a comfortable home, but your visits make the whole thing possible, Happy New Year to one and all!

Number 1, Oven Roasted Tomatoes, for Sauce or Freezer Storage. It is clear that there are many home gardeners, farmer's market shoppers, and good cooks in the group! I promote this recipe as one of the easiest ways to preserve summer and eat well all year long...

Number 2, One Pan Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes. This recipe if you can call it one is straight out of my childhood and a tribute to my mom. It is as much a process as a recipe and the nature of cooking with what you have, it might be slightly different from time to time. But that is the beauty of home cooking when made with love, it is always delicious!

Number 3, How to Make a Homemade Wedge Pillow. It is not all cooking here at Scratch Made Food! & DIY Homemade Household! We are a do-it-yourself- kind of family. This pillow served me well healing from ulcers, but you just might want one for reading in bed...

Number 4, How to Make Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour. This recipe is by far my favorite! Plus there is a very large group of recipes calling for Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour that you are sure to enjoy...

Number 5, Sauerkraut and Kielbasa. The perfect slow cooker meal when you want dinner with delicious flavor and one that will also cook itself while you tend to other chores...

Number 6, Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans. One of our philosophies is to eat more vegetables. And this delicious sidedish is proof that eating your vegetables is not a chore, and they taste good too!

Number 7, Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Granola. I must confess it was a lot of fun to find this recipe in the top 10 for 2021. This fun recipe was created from my memory of loving Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts as a kid...

Number 8, Rustic Chicken Medallions with Sipping Gravy! This is far more delicious than the time it takes to make it! Perfect for the family but also for dinner guests. 

Number 9, Winter Pea Salad Plate with Tomatoes and Cashews. Another perfectly easy way to eat more vegetables, in salad form! But don't feel compelled to only enjoy this wonderful salad plate in the winter...

Number 10, Chinese Spaghetti! In full disclosure, it is not Italian spaghetti and it is not Chinese in origin. But what it is, is delicious, frugal and the family will love it!
