Do you ever get sick of making the same meals?

Where do you get new recipe ideas? I dig out my Taste Of Home magazines. Really good ideas that are easy and inexpensive to make.

  • I do at times but thank goodness my family doesn't. My husband can eat a bowl of chili everyday.

  • I have a whole set of recipe cards that I bought in 1995 and only recently started to us. I like to change it up every month.

  • I have a long list of recipes, and I'm always trying new ones. I use,, and I also subscribe to Clean Eating Magazine (a way of eating that is about using whole foods). I also use recipes out of various magazines that I come across, like Fitness and Women's Health. More often than not, we have something new to try, so I have to consciously sprinkle the menu with old favorites.

  • I look at the cooking groups on here. Or look through my files, or check out the new Southern Living magazine. Never had a recipe from there that I didn't like.
