Me cooking and blogging, a looooong time ago in the old apartment
Since I’m busy reminiscing about cooking today: Those of you who’ve been reading here since way back when may remember that I used to make reader-submitted recipes on a fairly regular basis. They were a big part of the process of me figuring out how to cook, since they usually felt more accessible to me than recipes in cookbooks and such (and since I could just email the person who sent the recipe in if I had a question), and a few of them are still in regular rotation at our house, because they were just that good. (Most of them, obviously, are pasta.)
So: If you have a family-friendly – read: easy and non-fussy – dinner recipe that you particularly love and think I need to make…help a girl out? It doesn’t have to be your personal recipe; just one that you love.
(And just for fun, below is a rundown of my all-time favorite reader recipes. Be warned: Some of them date back to 2010 and include some seeeeeriously spectacular food photography fails.)
