I made basically one New Year’s resolution for 2023: bring back the Recipes the World Forgot series that I used to do semi-regularly!

With hundreds of recipes on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe, sometimes the newly posted recipes get all the attention when in reality, there are some hidden gems that are AMAZING and worthy of chance in the spotlight again!

This lineup is full of recipes I make regularly even after all these years.

That lentil chili is easily my favorite “red” chili recipe (SO GOOD), the cinnamon chip scones are literally the best scones on the planet (just read the reviews!), and the quinoa salad might be the best of the bunch.

Which of these recipes have you made?? I love knowing which recipes are YOUR favorites!
