Must-Try Recipes from Joanna Gaines
Are you a fan of “Fixer Upper” with Chip and Joanna Gaines? Do you just love the way they transform rundown houses into beautiful homes?
If you answered yes, you probably have already subscribed to their new Magnolia Network – which is available on Discovery+.
You may know that Joanna loves to bake. In fact, she has a bakery at The Silos in Waco. But the great thing about the new network is that you get a lot more of Joanna – including a look into the foods that Joanna loves to cook.
If you want to try a few of the recipes that Joanna has shared – here are some good ones!
- Fresh Banana Bread: Who doesn’t love banana bread? It’s great for breakfast, a snack, and even for dessert. Plus, it’s a fabulous way to use up those extra ripe bananas! Joanna’s recipe has all of the traditional ingredients you would expect to find in banana bread, but instead of baking it in a bread pan – she uses an 8”x8” pan – which is so much better! Using this size pan ensures that you won’t have uncooked banana bread in the middle – which can happen with a bread pan.
- Overnight French Toast: If you love casseroles, then you need to try this Overnight French Toast – because it’s the perfect “casserole” for breakfast! It’s very decadent (with heavy cream and lots of eggs) and, while you can serve it with maple syrup for a more traditional take on French toast, Joanna has a couple of other suggestions. She recommends orange honey mascarpone, pumpkin butter, or chocolate sea salt sauce – and she shares the recipes for all three of them.
- Huevos Rancheros: Joanna shares her version of Huevos Rancheros – which she says are a favorite of “her boys.” She serves hers on a fried corn tortilla and tops it with plenty of fresh ingredients – a simple homemade salsa, green onions, cilantro, and Cotija cheese. Delicious any time of the day!
- Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip: Want a delicious appetizer to serve with some tortilla chips or French bread toasts? Then give them Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip a try. And while you’re scrolling to the dip recipe, be sure to check out the other recipes that Joanna shares! There are some easy – and tasty – ones!
- Tortilla Soup: Looking for a light and fresh soup that can really be served year-round? Then this Tortilla Soup hits the mark. You can easily adjust it to your taste (or the taste of your pickiest eater), and you’ll love what she tops her soup with! (The Mexican Crema is yummy!)
- Jalapeno Cornbread: Every good soup needs an accompaniment! And yes, a salad is always acceptable, but so is this Jalapeno Cornbread – especially if you’re making the Tortilla Soup. Serve it warm with a pat of butter, and you’re going to be very happy!
- Mrs. Gail’s Chicken and Fettuccine Alfredo: When you think of Chicken and Fettuccine Alfredo, you probably think of the dish where the chicken is tossed into the alfredo sauce, but this one is a bit different. With this recipe, you make some beautiful pan-fried chicken cutlets that you can then serve with your pasta.
- Philly Cheesesteaks: Have you ever made Philly Cheesesteaks at home? Then you need to! Joanna suggests using ribeye or strip steaks for this recipe, and you’ll have plenty of peppers and onions and melty cheese to top them!
Joanna Gaines has lots of delicious recipes, and you can find most of them in her cookbooks or on her new cooking show. Which of these recipes are you looking forward to trying?
