Favorite Recipe Sites

As I mentioned earlier this week, we’ve been cooking at home a lot lately. One thing I’ve been having lots of fun doing is looking up new and interesting recipes to try. I’m not the bravest when it comes to trying new things, but there are so many free recipes available that there’s something for everyone!

Here are a few of my favorites:

AllRecipes has lots of great ideas, most of which have been reviewed by users. The comments are a great way to find twists and changes to the recipes that might make it more appealing to you.

Cooking Light has long been a favorite of my mom’s. While they do have a magazine you can purchase, there are also lots of free recipes on their site.

Taste of Home is a user based website, which is great because the recipes come from people like you and me. None of that fancy chef talk you don’t understand!

Pinterest is a favorite of mine, as always. I love the ease of searching the boards and the visuals are always great. Plus they have suggestions to fine tune your search and help you find exactly what you’re looking for!

What are some of your favorite recipe sites? There are so many out there. I can’t wait to try more!

Simple Dinner Recipes

Sorry for the inconsistency in posting lately, friends! Moving, unpacking and shoveling have taken over my life these past few weeks!

Speaking of moving, one of the goals my boyfriend and I have in living together is to limit how often we eat out and to eat dinner together several times a week. He works a strange schedule, so we each eat alone a few nights a week. So we have been making recipes with 4 servings and eating the leftovers for lunch at work or dinner when we’re home alone. So far, so good!

I thought it would be fun to share a few recipes we’ve liked so far and I’m hoping to share a few each month. Since it’s still early in the month, I only have two to share right now, but I’ll have more next month!

1. Shrimp Cobb Salad – this was our first recipe in our new home! The shrimp is absolutely delicious and I found the dressing to be really refreshing.

2. Paleo Stuffed Green Peppers – one thing I’m trying to cut down on is carbs, so this recipe which uses vegetables instead of rice is a great alternative. We also sprinkled a bit of shredded cheese on the top. This was filling and delicious!

Anyone else have recipes to share? We’re looking to build our own little recipe book to try!
