Turkey Day Around the Corner
Cleaning, slicing, dicing, stuffing, baking, washing, mixing, cooking.. all for one large, expansive meal of Thanksgiving!
But not everyone has family recipes to fall back on during the holiday season, so where do you turn? Lost Aunt Sadie's sweet potato pie recipe? Browsing through hundreds of cookbooks for just the right recipe may take hours or days without results.
Turn to the ultimate resource for recipes.. the web. There are thousands of websites dedicated to recipes, but my preference is a website that has feedback from other users, the option to print without ads and a decent search to locate the perfect recipe.
My all time favorite is Allrecipes.com/ because it has all of the features I prefer with a great many people willing to login and rate the recipes. Put in the ingredient in the search engine, sort by title, rating or popularity and you have a fantastic recipe database at your finger tips.
Didn't find Aunt Sadie's recipe? Well Google makes searching for recipes easy.
On the left hand side, there is a link to select only recipes. The search can be narrowed down even more by cooking time, and even calories.
Taste of Home is one my favorite magazines and you can often find deals online to subscribe.. but they also have recipes online. Like Allrecipes.com, they have a great search and you can easily narrow it down to the type of recipe, such as cooking for two or healthy or just plain comfort food.
I would love to hear some of your favorites. Comment below and share with other readers. Followers are growing daily and I feel so blessed. Wishing each and every one of you a safe and love-filled Thanksgiving!
