GOOD FRIENDS...GOOD FUN.....

AND GOOD FOOD!

My husband and I love to entertain. What is good friends and good fun without good food? I have been posting lotsa recipes for you all. I hope you are enjoying them and that it's inspiring you to get in your kitchen and cook or bake!


I would like to share some of my sources of recipes with you.

Many years ago I subscribed to Taste of Home magazine. Let me tell you, it was the best magazine subscription I have ever gotten. Every recipe I have from them is a tried and true recipe. Whatever I make from one of their recipes always comes out tasting delicious. What is so wonderful about them is that they have a website where you can print off their recipes now. So, if you didn't want to get a magazine subscription you could always get their recipes from their website.

The next source is http://www.allrecipes.com/ I love this site because it allows you to key in the number of people you will be serving. It adjusts the amount of ingredients you will need for your recipe to accommodate the number of people you will be serving. Only down side is that it doesn't adjust the cooking time. So be aware of that if you double any recipes from there.



Another source I use every now and then is http://www.recipegoldmine.com/ Here you will find popular restaurant recipes that you can make at home. If you have a Max and Irma restaurant near you I think they have the Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe on there if you like that. There are recipes from Applebees, Fridays, etc.


I have two sources left. One is my trusty JOY of Cooking cookbook. When I became a stay at home mom almost 18 years ago I learned how to cook and bake from this cookbook. I fondly refer to it as the Kitchen bible.



The very last source I have for some recipes I like is from this book. My dear hubby bought it for me for Christmas about four years ago. I love the picture on the front of it. The photography inside is equally as beautiful and the recipes won't dissapoint. In fact, this is where my meatloaf recipe comes from that I like to cook.

Now you are armed with a variety of sources to get out there and cook! I am sure you have some of your own as well.

can I just say that I made your fried chicken and it was soooo divine! I probably made about 4-5 pounds of it and I only had 2 pieces left over. My boys devored it!
