I am very excited to officially announce some new features on Everyday Home Cook!
You may have noticed a while ago that I switched to a new recipe format that allows you to more easily print out your favorite recipes. It is so much easier to print now! I’m slowly working through updating all of the recipes to use this new format, so if you come across one that you’d like me to bump to the top of my list, please comment on that post to let me know!
There is also a feature to “Save” the recipe to your personal recipe box using ZipList. To save a recipe to your recipe box, click on the “Save Recipe” button next to the recipe title. You can also save recipes from a growing number of other food bloggers who also partner with ZipList.
If you don’t already have an account with ZipList, you will be prompted to create one to use the recipe box and grocery list (I’ll talk about that in a minute!). After you log in, you can add recipes to your recipe box from any site that also uses ZipList. You can get to your recipe box easily by clicking the link at the top of this page.
And here’s a preview about what it looks like once you start saving recipes:
In addition to saving your favorite recipes to your recipe box, there is also an option to add ingredients to an online shopping list. If you’re anything like me, I oftentimes have to ask my husband to text me a picture of the grocery list on the refrigerator when I’m at the store However, with the app, you can access the grocery list from your phone. Extremely cool!
It’s almost the day of the big game! Meatballs are a fun party food, and it’s always nice to find a new way to jazz them up. I thought it would be fun to make a Mexican-style meatball dipped in enchilada sauce… Put them on a tortilla triangle, top with a cilantro leaf, and you’ve got Appetizer Enchilada Meatballs!
Salt & Pepper Chicken is yet another dish that I had to learn how to make after working at an Asian/Fusion restaurant in college. It flavorful and crispy, and very juicy as it is made with marinated dark meat chicken. While this was not one of the menu items at the restaurant, our chef, “Ma”, would make it for the staff because she knew how much we enjoyed it. After much searching online for a recipe, I finally found one that I was able to modify to taste about as close to Ma’s recipe as I think I’m going to get. If you enjoy bold flavors, I think you will love Salt & Pepper Chicken.
When I first made this Blueberry Buttermilk Cake, it disappeared within about 30 minutes (okay, maybe less…) of slicing into it. Between my two children, my husband, and myself, we devoured it. And then wished I would have made two. You could easily serve this cake for breakfast, dessert, or anytime in between. It is simple and flavorful. Plus, you can use whatever berries are in season, or even frozen berries if that is what you have on hand.
