Help My Recipe Box Grow!

So I have an idea and want to know if any of you would be interested! I was thinking that I could do sort of like a guest posting sequence, but with recipes!

In college, I picked up a few quick and easy (not to mention yummy!) recipes from friends that I would LOVE to share with people who are about to enter college, in college, on a budget, a non-cook, or someone who is simply short on time.

While in college I learned that most recipes were either expensive to create or made a ton of food. This is why my roommates and I would often cook with or for each other.

We would either split the cost of groceries or would all take turns cooking for one another once a week. This was fun to do and helped everyone have a great homemade dinner to look forward to (because lets face it, everyone gets tired of eating in the dining hall and eating out gets super expensive!).

My friends and I would also have potlucks

This was a great way to meet people and an inexpensive way to all get together and eat. You can have potlucks with people on your hall, in your study group, Bible study, pledge class if you rush a sorority, or just get a group of people together who enjoy watching the same show as you and make it an event! Just pick a theme: Italian night, Mexican night, Chicken Pot Pie night, Pizza night, Hamburger night, etc. and designate who brings what: main course, sides, dessert, drinks.

If your interested in joining in on this post a comment and email me the html to your post to

Make sure you leave a link to your blog in the post and maybe even attach a fun memory or story with the recipe or any tips you might have when making it. I think this could be a lot of fun and great for the domestically challenged :)

So hit up your friends and put your aprons on! No need to be a Paula Deene or Rachel Ray, just show us what you got! So get cookin' good lookin'!

Hope y'all have a great Monday! 



  1. I think this sounds like a great idea! :) After a year in on-campus apartments, I've come up with some great, easy, and cheap recipes and I'd love to try some more!

  2. This sounds fun! I'll be sure to e-mail you mine, as I was actually thinking of a particular recipe to make for dinner tonight.

  3. I love this idea! My boyfriend and I have a favorite recipe that I would love to send along. I'll do it soon!

  4. I love this idea! I have a few recipes that I can send in to share. Now that I'm a junior almost everybody is living off campus, which means that me and my friends need to learn to cook. I will definitely be saving everyone's recipes!

  5. I love this idea - a blog recipe book! I used to love the pot lucks we had in youth group. It was so fun to try new foods from different people. Hope your having a wonderful day <3

  6. pick me, pick me ;) I gots a few up my sleeve!


Thank you for all your sweet comments! It really brightens my day :)
