Do you love to cook and bake for your family? Or are you someone who only cooks because you have to feed your family and don’t want to order take out every night? No matter which category you fall into, I have you covered with these family friendly recipes.

Recipe Box

I love to cook most of the time. I do not love to cook supper every night. Thankfully I married a man who also loves to cook so we can switch off when the need arises. And I’m now rising a child who enjoys cooking. We all love food, and when you love food, learning to cook is natural.

Over the past eight or so years since I started Forgetful Momma I have been sharing recipes. It has honestly become my recipe book, just tonight I looked up the ingredients in my cheeseburger soup. I haven’t been adding them as often lately with my focus being on homeschooling but I am trying for one recipe a month now.

The types of recipes you can expect to find here are:

Breakfast – Sometimes something different is nice, often the breakfast recipes are something that I can make ahead of and let them get when they wake up.

Main Course – Main courses in our house can be almost anything from a 30 minute meal which is great for a week night when you are tired, and/or busy and just don’t want to spend a lot time cooking to meals that are better off made on the weekend when you have more time.

Slow Cooker – I love my low cookers, plural. I have 3 different sizes because we make many things in them. They are a favorite for both in the winter to make hot meals for warming up and for in the summer when you don’t want to heat up the house by running the oven.

Desserts – Everyone needs desserts and you aren’t going to find super fancy desserts, but ones that anyone can make and they are going to be delicious.

Snacks – Because everyone needs snacks in their life.

Condiments – Because Life needs flavor and why should you have to buy it?
