All image below allow you to click through to the recipe. (Some of the recipes without images were posted before I had the foggiest idea of how to take a decent picture. I’d like to get them updated with better photos, but the recipes are tried, true, and simple.)
All recipes on Home Ec 101, unless otherwise specified are written for people learning to cook with average kitchens. You don’t need fancy, high-end appliances to make delicious food for your family. The ingredients are also supposed to be easy to find. If you can’t find them at your local neighborhood grocery store or store similar to WalMart.
I never intend to share recipes that require a lot of extra legwork.
