Catching Up on Holiday Recipes

Now that the holidays are over and done with, I’m finally catching up and getting all of the yummy holiday recipes up on Recipe Corner.  You can still download the collection (link in left sidebar) but I wanted all of the recipes posted here too so that they can be easily searched for.  If you’re getting this through your feed reader, you’ll see several of the holiday recipes coming through in the next few days.  Once I get them all posted, I’ll get back to my regular posting schedule which is (unfortunately) totally sporadic.

As always, if you have recipes you would like to submit, feel free to send them to dee (AT) recipecorner (DOT) net or send them through the comment form.

Who Doesn’t Like Cookies?

Cookies! It’s that time of year again and I’ve got cookies on the brain!  Some of my fondest Christmas memories include making cookies with my mom and sister.  The snowballs were always my favorite, not only because they are delicious, but because they were a lot of fun to make too.  I really look forward to my children being able to be more active in the holiday cookie making in a few years.  Zach had fun decorating sugar cookies last year so that’s probably what we’ll focus on again this time around but I thought it might be fun to try out a few new recipes too (this is where you all come in!). 

As I was thinking about all of the cookie options I had an idea – what if I could get all of my friends and family to send me their favorite holiday cookie recipes?  There may be a few duplicates, but I’m sure you all have some great recipes you’ve been stashing away.

I thought about turning it into a contest, but in the end I figured out a way that everybody can win!  What I would like to do is collect all of your favorite holiday cookie recipes and create a downloadable pdf recipe book for everyone to share.  Each recipe will be featured in a post on Recipe Corner, as well as included in the printable recipe book.

Here’s what I need from you:

  1. Your favorite cookie recipe
  2. Your name (Keep in mind this will be published online.  Feel free to use a nickname if you would like.)
  3. Your web site or blog address if you would like it included (not necessary)
  4. A photo of your cookies (if you have one and would like it included)

E-mail your entry to dee(AT)recipecorner(DOT)net (please send to this address only so I can keep them straight)

Deadline for entries is next Friday, December 19, 2008 to allow time for me to put the pdf book together.

Any questions?  Feel free to leave it in the comments or e-mail me at the address above.

Back to Business

If you’ve been following along, you might have noticed that things have been a bit quiet around here for the last month or so. You can blame that all on the birth of this little angel:

Sitting Pretty

She’s been keeping me quite busy for the last 5 weeks and hasn’t allowed much time for blogging, cooking, or posting recipes. As we figure out our new daily routine, I’m hoping to get back to regular posting here, as well as my other sites.

We’ve got a few new recipes ready to post so make sure you check back in this week for more delicious ideas!


And The Fun Begins

Welcome to Recipe Corner! We’re just getting things started around here, but we hope you’ll find something useful each time you stop by. I hope this site will eventually become a great resource for my own family as well as others out there looking for new recipes and dinner ideas.

While I have many of my own recipes to contribute, I also want this site to become a group effort. I’m hoping to receive contributions from my own family and friends, but anyone is free to submit recipes through the contact form for consideration.

As things get going around here, I would love to hear your feedback and suggestions. I have a pretty good idea about what I want this site to be, but I’m always happy to hear what readers might enjoy seeing on the site.  I would also love to find out what your favorite recipe sites or blogs are.  Feel free to leave me some links in the comments.
