OK, not really an “Ode”… because I vaguely remember an Ode having things like a strophe… or something like that… (sincerest apologies to my beloved Humanities teacher Miss Lees)
I’ve been wanting to write a little tribute for a while now.
Do you use it and love it? Have you ever heard of it?
If you haven’t heard of it, Tasty Kitchen is Pioneer Woman‘s amazing recipe resource.
I have been using since it launched last year. It came along when I was searching for a good way to provide printable recipes for my blog. (After several readers told me how they had used up all their ink trying to print one of my recipes and it printed my whole blog!) When Pioneer Woman announced the launch of Tasty Kitchen, I knew I had found the perfect solution. Over the past year, I loved having a recipe box online. At this writing, I have nearly 50 recipes saved in my recipe box. Anytime I need to share a recipe with a friend, it’s easy to send them a link.
But even better, Tasty Kitchen has quickly become my favorite source for new recipes. I love the user reviews and I love when Tasty Kitchen highlights fabulous cooks and recipes…
Here’s a few of my favorite recipes from Tasty Kitchen:
Thanks to the Princess and the Frog movie, my kids had been begging me to make Beignets. But not being from New Orleans, I had never even tried a Beignet. When I saw the recipe Beignets- Cafe du Monde – Eat Your Heart Out, I knew I had to try it. And it didn’t disappoint. We’ve made it more than once for our Sunday treat and loved it every time.
This recipe is from the Pioneer Woman herself… and it is one of my favorites. This recipe for Crash Hot Potatoes is fast and easy easy enough for a mid-week dinner, but nice enough for Sunday. I been making them with fresh chives out of garden and oh my, they are delicious.
Here’s one that I love. It’s Two Peas and Their Pod’s recipe for Raspberry Lemon Bars. They are creamy, lemony, easy to make, and wonderful. Since the fall raspberries are in season here… what a perfect treat to make this week.
The recipe for Butter Chicken (image shown above) is on my menu this week. After reading the reviews, I can’t wait to try it.
I love finding great new recipes… and I love that you can see reviews and get a sense of whether a recipe is good or not.
The awesome women at Tasty Kitchen read every recipe that’s submitted… and they won’t post it if they see something confusing or wrong with the recipe. Anyone can use Tasty Kitchen to create recipe box, you don’t need to be a blogger. It’s a great way to share your recipes with family and friends.
Tasty Kitchen now feels like an extension of my kitchen, like a favorite recipe book that I couldn’t do without. It you haven’t already be sure to check it out.
