  • There are cooking/baking/crockpot groups on here too. Look under the green groups tab

  • I love exploring  

    You can search for recipes in general.  You can search for a recipe that contains ingredients you have on hand etc.  I either then print out the recipe OR I take my laptop into the kitchen. 

    Have fun!!

  • Left Over Recipe for Chili

    Put your left overs in a baking pan
    Make up biscuits and drop the mix on top of the chili evenly spaced.
    Bake (whatever your biscuit recipe says) you can do this with cornbread too. is excellent to play on too.

  • One we like a lot is tomato cream sauce for pasta. Boil your pasta (we use three cups for 2-3 people) and a few minutes into that start your sauce. In a large skillet put 2 T olive oil. Get oil hot and add 1T. chopped garlic. Heat and stir for about 30 seconds and then add 1 small can diced tomatoes, 1 T. tomato paste (from a tube), 4 sliced sundried tomatoes, stir and simmer for a few minutes. Then add 1/2 cup cream, a little at a time, and stir constantly. Drain pasta and combine with sauce. I find it easiest to get all the ingredients out first. This is also yummy without the cream. Enjoy your search for new recipes!

  • Have you checked out the cooking groups? Cooking 101 is good.

  • This is not a from scratch type recipe, as I am not a from scratch type of mom, but it was good.

    Frozen meatballs in a small casserole dish, take a can of spinach and drain the extra water off, pour the spinach onto the meatballs so there is spinach covering each one. Salt with garlic salt and onion power. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. It keeps the meatballs moist and adds a nice flavor (tasted like Italian Wedding Soup. Maybe not what you're looking for but that's my best try.
