Ode to Tasty Kitchen

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'm a Tasty Kitchen FanTasty Kitchen!

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.

  • Yes, I have heard of TastyKitchen.com. I have been using it since the day it was launched. I have a badge for it on my blog site as I have 68 recipes from “the community” and 11 of mine. I post all my recipes from my blog (username is slpatters) there was well it is the first place I to find a recipe. I also send people to my recipe box, too. I wish there was an easier way to load recipes as I keep my recipes on my Mac using MacGourmet Deluxe. I can export recipes and would love to be able to upload them to TastyKitchen.com.

    Admittedly though, I also use AllRecipes.com – mostly because I have an iPhone app (both free and paid) for their site.

    I would LOVE it if Ree would have an iPhone app!

    I see you’re listed as “A Friend of Tasty Kitchen”. ;) I think that may have even been how I first found your site.

    BTW, I’ve added those lemon raspberry bars to my recipe box. ;)

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tasty Kitchen! I’ve taken to visiting on Sundays to suppliment my staples in the menu at my house. I try to make 3 new dishes from the blog and bake one thing each week. The baking thing is for my kiddos so they have something sweet in their lunchboxes.

    Love the site, btw….found your blog thru Tasty Kitchen!

  • EG:

    It’s kind of overwhelming because there are SO many recipes!

  • Yes, I use it whenever I need a recipe, and I saw you on there- I think they did a meet blog on you. :)

  • Whitney:

    I was looking for a recipe on Tasty Kitchen just before I came on your site today! I love it! Every recipe I’ve tried has been fantastic. I haven’t submitted any yet but I have a Corn and Sausage Chowder recipe I’m itching to share. :)

  • So glad you love the lemon raspberry bars! Thanks for the mention!

  • KimD:

    You will love Butter Chicken – its good with lemon pasta too :) I had leftovers of each one week and combined them for a new favorite!

  • TanyaB:

    Love Tasty Kitchen! Made the Butter Chicken Recipe last night – I only let the meat marinate for 20 minutes, and used less than half the cream – absolutley delicious! Definitely a keeper!

  • TK should be honored EVERY day! – goodness what a treasure of a source for baking, cooking and making friends! I can’t believe that I have survived this long without the TK being in my life this past year. :-) So happy to be part of such a wonderful on-line community!
