Recipe Archive

Delta Sol 53014I love to cook; it relaxes me. I love to feed my family and friends, to gather around the table in my kitchen and share real food, real conversation. Once upon a time, I even wrote about it.

In January 2013 I started making weekly menu plans and publishing them every Saturday (ish). Then I tagged a short weekly menu on the end of my weekly essay posts. Then I tried to start an offshoot second blog, dinner prompt, which quickly overwhelmed me and has been languishing since August 2015.

So below is simply an (unordered) archive of many of the recipe links that I’ve posted and used. Originally I intended to categorize the recipes – chicken, beef, salads, etc. But honestly, when I’m looking for cooking inspiration a jumble is more likely to spark an idea for me, and so jumble assortment it is. Also, I add to this page the links from my weekly posts on an irregular, sporadic basis; so if you’re looking for a recipe from recent weeks and don’t see it here, my apologies.
