Skillet Mac Cheese Exps Toh5icfrtl21 27614 E07 15 3b

Mac & Cheese

“When in doubt, fry it or add cheese,” Miranda told us. That’s a pretty good motto and proof enough that she must love some macaroni and cheese! (Read our interview with Miranda here.)

Peanut Butter Pie

One dessert Ms. Lambert excels at making is peanut butter pie. She opts for an old-fashioned recipe, using cornstarch and egg yolks to thicken the peanut buttery filling. We think she’d love our version, too.

Fried Pickles

Fried dill pickles are an appetizer this Southern gal can’t pass up. That’s one thing she’s got in common with Elvis Presley!

Meat Loaf

Miranda has made it known that her favorite dish is her mom’s meat loaf, which includes beef, pork and saltine cracker crumbs. Every year, it’s what she requests as a birthday treat! (Along with this cake, we hope.)

As an enthusiastic hunter, Miranda probably has no shortage of venison in her freezer. This hearty stew would be a great use for it.

Corn Casserole

Corn casserole is a Southern classic, and Miranda makes hers uniquely delicious by incorporating macaroni and Velveeta, though she would undoubtedly agree that any cheese would do.

Homemade Ranch Dressing And Dip Mix Exps Sddj17 46608 D08 25 4b 3

Ranch Dressing

Miranda has said that she really only likes vegetables when there’s ranch dressing on them, so she’s got to have a great recipe for homemade ranch.

Garlic Beef Enchiladas Exps 13x9bz21 10248 E10 07 4b.rms  8


Another dish her mother cooks that “can stand up against anybody’s” is enchiladas. It’s no surprise this Texas gal loves such a great Tex-Mex dish.

Tex-Mex might be the best cuisine–here’s our proof!

Peanut Butter Cookies Exps2733 5bs29733292b03 15 3bc Rms 18

3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Miranda must be a peanut butter fan–her go-to recipe when she needs a quick treat is flourless peanut butter cookies. She calls them Magic, and they certainly are! Just add 1 tsp. vanilla to make her version.

The singer loves venison so much, it was served at her wedding to Blake Shelton in 2011. This is a woefully underused protein.

Cheese Pizza

Given her love of cheese, it’s no surprise that Miranda’s favorite dish at Winners, a restaurant in Nashville, is cheese pizza. When she’s on the go, these pizza rolls would surely delight her, too!

Grilled Sirloin With Chili Beer Barbecue Sauce Exps36555 Sd1999448c02 23 2bc Rms 3

Barbecue Sauce

Beer is the secret ingredient in Miranda’s mom’s barbecue sauce. It must be tasty on everything, including grilled steak.

Peanut Butter Cereal Treats Exps36948 Th2236620b06 02 5bc Rms 7

Cereal Treats

Like many of us, Ms. Lambert still loves cereal treats even as an adult. Though Froot Loops are a favorite, her love of peanut butter leads us to believe she’d be a fan of these treats, too.

Fluff Salad

Cherry salad is an old-school potluck dish that Miranda makes using whipped topping, condensed milk, cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple. This fluff is similar and surely as yummy!

Chicken-Fried Venison

Miranda says her father makes a great chicken-fried venison, so he’d probably ace the preparation of a chicken-fried steak too.
