I also have a cookbook on this site to get recipes from a little quicker. My family’s favorite recipe that comes to mind quickly is for cream puffs. I only make these for special occasions because the recipe requires several eggs. I double the cream puff pastry recipe, but I make 1/2 a batch of the chocolate filling for half the pastries and use an already-made Bavarian creme filling for the other half of the pastries. I can’t have chocolate (yes I’ve gotten used to it!), so since I’ve gone to the trouble to make them, I make some I can eat, too.

I’ve also bought a pan from here. I broke the lid of my jellyroll pan and this was the ONLY place I found that pan and lid to replace it reasonably priced. I think it is a 11″ x 15″ size? A jellyroll pan is used for several of my older recipes from relatives. All I could find was half sheet or quarter sheet pans. I guess that’s the new size.



This website I also get emails from by getting added to their email list. They have food from any course. One pot comfort foods, slow cooker dishes, holiday and entertaining, a how to section,everyday meals, and just recipes. I find that some of their recipes start out with a boxed dinner, add some ingredients and make it just a little more homemade tasting. From the recipes that I have used off their website, most are made with food I have in my pantry or freezer. That makes the recipes have familiar ingredients, not exotic and hard to find (expensive) ingredients.

It’s a good place to start if you’re a new cook!



This is a website that I get several recipes from by getting added to their email list. My family’s favorite recipe from here is “The Best Unbaked Cherry Cheesecake Ever.”   I first got introduced to this recipe when my daughter was performing in high school plays. They would put on a dinner theater and parents would make this dessert for it. If you double the recipe it fits in a 9 x 13 pan, which makes it easy to cut and put on plates. If I fix it for us 4, I will use a store-bought graham cracker crust. This eliminates 1 step making it that much easier. I have even bought the spray whip cream when it’s on sale to put on top of the pie filling. If we don’t have any pie filling for it, we have used chocolate or butterscotch ice cream topping to put on top too. It’s even been requested for birthdays instead of “normal” cake. I don’t think it’s quite “diet” food, but it is good “comfort” food! It is a recipe that you can make occasionally and not feel guilty. You don’t even have to heat the house in the summer to eat it!
