Looking for Easy Free Recipes

I'm looking for a website that gives away free recipes. Is there one that anyone can suggest that they have found to be quite successful. I'm tired of finding free recipes and I end up wasting food or eating something that I don't like. I'm also looking for a website that has diet specific recipes for allergies as my sister can't eat a lot of different foods. Also, I have now had gallbladder surgery and need new ways of cooking and recipes as my body can't handle unnatural fats or large quantities of fat anymore. Is there anyone out there that can give me advice?

allrecipes.com is great! I only make things that have a high star rating. You can find recipes according to ingredients you want to include and/or that you want to avoid.

look at noblepig.com, it is a winery but the owner has a blog and new recipes, with photos every day, I have tried several of her recipes and they are great!! Also, for a quick, easy summer dinner, i get plum tomatoes, scoop out the insides(save for another use)fill with cottage cheese, sprinkle with green onions and crumbled bacon or bacon bits, and a little fresh ground pepper. Yummy!!!

I have three that I have recently found that have more simple recipes with simple ingredients. So far none that I have found are very difficult to make, and they've all been very tasty.



www.campbellskitchen.com

www.bettycrocker.com

www.simpleanddelicious.com



There is also a Simple & Delicious magazine that I subscribe to. I have found a LOT of really awesome recipes in there... and EVERY recipe has a picture. It only comes out every other month, so you have plenty of time to try a few things before you get the next magazine. So far nothing has been difficult or required a lot of strange ingredients, and so far my husband has raved about everything and requested I make most of them again.

allrecipes.com has really great recipes that are quick and easy to do. I also like Kraft and Betty Crocker's websites for free recipes.

When I want a new recipe I go to the Food Network web page. Everything I have tried from there has been excellent and yummy.

taste.com.au is a great website. For general healthy, tasty food and also great for diet specifics to tailor those with allergies.

Check out tastebudding.com. It's a website just for family friendly (read: kid friendly) recipes that are also healthy - no processed, preservative laden recipes. If you click on advanced search, you can choose allergy restrictions like dairy free, wheat free, soy free, egg free, etc. Good luck and happy eating!

I haven't got any sites for allergies but I use this one a fair bit www.taste.com.au. Has a lot of really good kid friendly meals and also low fat ones. I got my gallblander removed last year and I've been using www.thebiggestloser.com.au/recipes a lot.

My sister has a blog on cooking. She often alters recipes to diet restrictions or to use more natural ingredients. She is a great resource for cooking help. Here's her blog: http://www.joyofthekitchen.com/

You can also do a net search for vegan, celiac or organic cooking and you should come up with several options to explore.

I agree, I love allrecipes.com. I like the fact that people comment on the recipes after they try them and either say what they didn't like about it or what changes they made to make it better. It is extremely helpful.

allrecipes.com is the best site i've found yet. I use this site almost daily to find new things to make or work. All the recipes on there are submitted by real people who actually make them at home for their families.

The best thing I love, is the calculator for figuring different servings

Hi Rachel,



I don't do a lot of recipes around allergies, but I try to write about my weekday meal at www.chriscookin.wordpress.com. At least here, if you have any questions, I'm just an email away.



Good luck!

I love to cook and I love to experiment with new recipes. These are a few that I use. Allrecipes is great. People like you and I post a recipe, and others can rate it and tell you how easy it was to prepare, and if it was good, or how it can be made better.

Hope these help you.

Also, use only olive oil if you can. It is the best source of fat. I now make everything with olive oil, including gravies.

I highly recommend ourbestbites.com! It is a great blog that includes pictures and interactions.

Also, crockpot365.blogspot.com is great. The person who writes it makes everything in a crockpot. She posts pictures and gives reviews of everything that she tries. She is very honest and while she will post something that didn't turn out so well, she is straight forward about it.



Finally, I like allrecipes. The fact that you can sort the recipes by review rating is very helpful, and I am sure to read the reviews before trying something.



Good Luck!
