2023 recipes overview

I love that we have such a large family, and our family-friendly recipes are also resonating with you. We have tried simplifying our recipes so meals may be made quickly to get the family around the table again. If we can put all of these recipes in a nutshell, here’s what it would look like:

  1. Easy to make- Anyone can recreate the meal at home, whether you are an advanced cook or a novice in the kitchen.
  2. Simplified approach- We try to simplify our steps and keep them minimal so you spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your family.
  3. Basic ingredients- When recreating recipes, we try to use ingredients the everyday chef uses in their kitchen.
  4. Variety of recipes- You can find just about any cuisine on our site, from Ukrainian cooking to Mexican recipes, Italian-inspired dishes, and classic American recipes.
