Got something yummy to share?

To all my food blogger friends and chefs debonair:

I need your help. I am on a mission to try 100 new recipes in the next year. I have lots of recipe books and websites to help me, but I thought I would reach out to the experts: Other moms.

I'm looking for tried-and-true meals to surprise and/or delight my family. Can you share a favorite recipe with me in the comments or (even better) post a link to your favorite recipe? It could be a dinner dish, a breakfast tradition or even a lunch idea...all would be welcome.

If I try one of your meals, I'll list you on my home page sidebar and definitely comment on your site (I'll probably even follow you with the hopes that you will lead me to even more yummy dishes).

Here are some made up FAQs to help submit recipes:
  1. Does your family have any allergies?
    No. Thankfully we are food allergy-free. We are all omnivorous although someone is picky about onions (but is fine if I substitute onion powder).
  2. I have a great dessert for you to try.
    I am sure it is divine, so please do not send it to me. We are trying to eat a little healthier this year, so I prefer the meals to be non-desserts.
  3. Any other restrictions?
    No pasta-based meals, please. We love pasta and I've accumulated a dozen too many pasta dishes, so I'm looking for something a little different.
  4. Do you have a crock pot?
    Yes, and if you gave me a some direction of what to put into it, we could become BFFs. I love my crock pot and make a fabulous chili in it, but it gets lonely and needs me to cook more things in it.
  5. Do you like peanut butter?
    Yes. Yes. Yes!
Thank you so  much for your help!


  1. I share all of my homemade meals on my food blog at: I hope you'll try some of them and let me know how they turn out!

    1. Thanks, Karen! I will head over to your blog to check them out!

  2. I have an allergy blog for kids but all my recipes are pretty simple. You'd probably be interested in the Savory and Delicious Tab. Just substitute regular wheat flour instead of GF, egg instead of applesauce, and omit xanthan gum. I only post recipes the my kids actually ate :)

    1. Thanks, Laura! I'll check you out - and thanks for the conversion info as well :)
