Posted September 8, 2017 by Prairie Wife -
When we first began PrairieWifeInHeels.com almost 4 years ago we posted recipe posts every month.
As the blog has developed over the years it has molded and changed…and I’m sure it will continue to do so as the years go on!
Last year I made the decision to stop writing recipes.
I still cook over 20 meals a week for my family of 7, and they are usually from scratch but, over time realized that I kinda hate writing recipe posts. I am NOT a great food photographer and I didn’t want to invest the time and money needed to become one. Writing a recipe is boring (for me) and time-consuming so, I made the selfish move to stop posting them.
You can find our past recipes (and if I do say so myself they are all pretty darn tasty) by following this link.
But, I thought it would be nice to share with you a few of my go-to food blogs and current family fav recipes!
First I recommend you head over to Pinterest and follow our recipe boards. Main Meals, Sweet Treats, and Food On the Side are full of awesome recipe ideas. I delete any recipes that I’ve tried and disliked, and I try to make at least one recipe a week that’s new! Last week we made this Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry and the whole family loved it!
- I’m sure it’s no surprise when I tell you that The Pioneer Woman is one of my go to women for a tasty meal. I have her newest cookbook on preorder and I can’t wait to dive into it when it comes next month!
- Two Peas and Their Pod have simple, healthy recipes that have elevated my ability to mix flavors in a sophisticated way! They use seasonal ingredients that are usually easy to find in our small town and the recipes are ones my whole family can enjoy. These Grilled Sausage and Vegetable Foil Packs are perfect for a Fall BBQ with friends and family.
- I’ve been following Ashley from Cook Nourish Bliss for years, and she never disappoints. First she is a pro food photographer, she could make Kraft mac ‘n cheese look like a 5 star meal! She is a true foodie and while there are times I have been nervous to try her fancy combos, I have yet to be disappointed in the outcome. Just take a look at these Honey Chipotle Beer Bread Muffins …wouldn’t they be fabulous with a bowl of chili?
- I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention our very own Wyo Sal. She has snuck a few recipes onto the blog in the last year and I’m sure she will continue to do so! You can read more about her recipes and find a link to her cookbook by following this link.
Take a second to share some of your fav recipe blogs with me in the comments, I’m always looking for new ones to follow!
