Simple* Recipes for Not-so-Simple Foods

Crock Pot Gourmet, Delicious Desserts, and more (mostly) easy recipes to fit any diet

 

As those who know me are aware, I love to cook. And I love a challenge. So experimenting to come up with new and delicious recipes for my friends is one of my favorite things to do. Recently, some of my friends and acquaintances have asked me to share some of the recipes I've created. And what started out as a weekly blog post with crock pot recipes has grown into a series of recipes to include gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options for those with special dietary needs. I hope this page will help you to easily find the recipes you're searching for. (To sort by category, click the top of the desired column.)

* ... Well, mostly simple recipes. I enjoy the challenge of simplifying complex recipes to find an easier / less expensive / less time-consuming way to do it. But sometimes I create recipes for a different kind of challenge (usually to fit a specific dietary need) and so some recipes might be a bit more complicated than others. Still, I strive to make all of my recipes easy (and inexpensive) enough for anyone to make.
