    Here are some of my favorite recipe sites:

    If you’re looking for healthy recipes, I’ve found that using vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and allergen-free cookbooks is a great way to go because they tend to be a lot more health conscious than regular cookbooks. And if you don’t have any dietary restrictions, you can modify the recipes a little.

    One of my family’s favorite recipes is super easy and it costs almost nothing. It’s sort of like cabbage rolls without the rolls. ๐Ÿ™‚ We stir fry usually a whole head of chopped cabbage with a little bit of (organic, non-GMO ๐Ÿ™‚ ) soy sauce tasting stuff then combine it with about 1 lb. of cooked ground beef (or deer, or antelope, or elk or whatever we pull out of the fridge ๐Ÿ™‚ ). We eat it warm with brown rice and drench it in some more of the yummy soy sauce stuff. Delicious! Even my dad (who likes large quantities of red meat and is a little skeptical about the whole health food thing) and my little brother (who would rather eat cheese pizza and cookies every day) rave about it. It makes enough to feed 5 or 6 of us plus leftovers.

    Oh boy! Where would I even begin to start? ๐Ÿ˜› Well, here are some great website where I get a lot of recipes off of:

    The latter is a great one–you can type in any ingredients and it’ll pull up recipes using those ingredients! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Here’s one that’s fun to make:

    Mama Reedโ€™s Tea Cakes

    -1 Cup butter or margarine
    -1 Cup sugar
    -3 eggs
    -3 1/2 Cup self rising flour
    -1 teaspoon vanilla

    Cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs and mix again. Add vanilla and flour and mix well. Roll thin on floured board, cut with cookie or biscuit cutter. Bake at 350 for ten minutes. Sprinkle with sugar while warm or ice with simple icing.

    Simple Icing
    2 Tablespoon softened butter or margarine
    1/2 Cup Confectionerโ€™s sugar
    2 Tablespoons milk (can add another if needed)
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    Few drops food coloring

    Cut butter into confectionerโ€™s sugar. Add milk and stir until lumps are gone. Add one teaspoon of vanilla and a few drops of food coloring, stir until combined. Spoon onto cookies or tea cakes and spread with back of spoon. Top with sprinkles while still wet, if desired. Let dry before stacking.

    There are many others, but if you google or Goodsearch recipes, I’m sure you’ll find countless. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But try the websites I suggest above! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve got several here: I’m not a great cook yet, (after all, I’m only 14!) so if you’re just a beginner, the recipes shouldn’t seem too awful hard. ๐Ÿ˜€

    One very useful skill you should learn now is how to cook dried beans. I think Debi mentions this in the book. Beans are tasty, healthy, and cheap. ๐Ÿ™‚ Our family eats a lot of beans. Here are some of our favorite recipies.

    Soaking Beans

    First of all, dried beans should be soaked the night before you want to cook them. We normally soak and cook our beans in a big crock pot. You need:

    4 cups beans (any kind or a mixture)
    Warm water
    1/4 cup lemon juice or whey

    Like I said, we use a big crock pot. Normally we put the beans in and fill it 3/4 of the way with cold water. Then we heat water in the tea kettle and add it to the crock pot until the water is kind of warm. (I think we do it this way because our water heater adds weird stuff to our hot tap water) You don’t want it to be hot but neither should it be cold to the touch. Then add the lemon juice or whey and let soak over night. In the morning the beans should be drained and rinsed before you fill the crock pot with water again and cook them.

    Its that easy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Once you get used to the process you don’t even have to think about it. However, plain beans aren’t amazing. Beans taste good once you start adding spices and herbs, yumm!!! Here are some of our favorite recipes.

    Apple Bean Bake
    2 quarts cooked, drained beans
    4 T butter
    3 C tart cooking apples cubed and peeled
    1/2 C chopped onion
    Sautee apples and onions for about 10 min until apples are tender. Add 1/4 cup brown sugar (we use honey). Stir until dissolved. Blend in 1/2 Ketchup and 1 tsp cinnamon, salt to taste. Place beans in a 2 quart casserole dish. Pour apple mixture over and mix well. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hr. Serves:8

    Refried Beans

    Soak beans as mentioned above.
    When cooking add:
    1 t cumin seed
    1 t garlic
    2 T onion flakes

    When beans are done cooking let cool slightly and then process in a food processor. Our food processor will only fit half of the batch at once. Both times we process we add 1 t cumin powder, 2 T oil, 1 t salt. Then, of course, the beans can be fried on the stove top.
    These are great with tacos or spread in a dish and top with sour cream and salsa and serve with corn chips. Yumm!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here are some other favorite recipices:

    Taco seasoning

    1 T chili powder
    2 t onion powder (or 2 T onion flakes)
    1 t each of cumin, garlic powder, paprika, powdered oregano, and sugar
    1/2 t salt
    1 T cilantro (optional)

    This recipe is good for 1 lb beef. It is a whole lot cheaper than buying little packets of taco seasoning!

    Spaghetti Sauce ( This is our favorite)

    2lbs hamburger
    1 big onion
    2 cloves garlic

    Drain fat and add:
    6 cans (15 oz) tomato sauce
    1 tsp oregano
    1 1/2 tsp thyme
    1 tsp basil
    2 tsp salt

    Simmer for 1 hour

    Tomato Soup
    46 oz tomato juice (1 1/2 qts)
    8 oz tomato sauce
    1/2 cup beef broth (or chicken)
    1/2 tsp basil
    2 T honey
    1/4 t whole cloves (float in tea infusor) (optional)

    Combine and simmer on stove top. Great with grilled cheese sandwhiches. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you don’t have beef broth subsitute with 1/2 cup of water and 1 T bullion granules.

    Basic Roast Chicken
    1 chicken
    3 T butter, softened
    1-2 cloves garlic
    3/4 t salt
    4-5 grinds pepper
    2 t thyme

    Melt butter and stir in herbs. Rub all over chicken and bake at 350 for 2 hours. Easy and delicious. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Okay, one of my weaknesses:

    1 C Pecans or other nuts
    1 1/2 C fresh grated parmesan cheese
    3 T chopped fresh garlic
    2 C basil leaves (fresh)
    1 1/2 C extra virgin olive oil
    salt and pepper to taste
    Process (pulse) cheese, nuts, garlic, basil in food processor for 1-2 min or until well chopped and blended. With procesor running add oil slowly. Add salt and pepper. Don’t process too long or mixture will get dark and look gross. Keeps well for 3 weeks in the refridgerator and freezes well. Serve on crackers, in salad, on chicken or fish, sandwhiches, or anything.

    Hope you find a favorite out of these for your family! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sometimes I look at the ingredients I have around, and then search the Internet for recipes that use that ingredient. For example, my family recently decided to try eggplant, so I searched for “eggplant recipes” and found several that sound delicious!

    I also read several cooking blogs, and I have to concur with Kat about the allergy-friendly recipes. Very often, they are more healthy in general! You have to use your brain there, though, because sometimes the author does not know much about health, and is just trying to recreate the off-limits foods as closely as possible, without worrying about good nutrition.

    I’ll also take this opportunity to plug my own blog, I write mostly about recipes. All of my recipes are gluten free, and most are dairy free and corn free, to fit the needs of my family.

    I buy a few cookbooks, but only if I like nearly all the recipes. Otherwise, I save money by getting recipes from friends, church family, and the Internet.

      I was going to put this on your website but I prefer here. I didn’t want to cause any problems. It is a lovely website for girls I realy like it but, be careful it is likely there will be boys looking at it. Try not to give out too much personal info. There are, unfortunately, some men out there that can pretend to be exactly what you want. Just be careful.
