Anyone who likes to cook will tell you that part of the fun of cooking is sharing good recipes. At Teri's Kitchen, you will find hundreds of tried-and-true recipes from my family and personal collections, plus several hundred shared recipes from contributors. In addition, there are menus for every day and special occasions, cooking tips, links and much more. I will post additions and revisions to the site on this page as they occur throughout the month. To browse the kitchen, visit the Site Index or, for specific recipes or information, use the search boxes throughout the site. I hope you will enjoy what I have to offer.

Recipes for Hearty Stews, Soups and Chowders

When the weather turns cold, I crave heartier meals. Stews, soups and chowders are some of my favorite winter weather recipes. Some are quick and easy, others a bit more labor intensive and slow cooking. Most make a delicious one pot meal, perhaps with some crusty bread or a salad on the side. I always look forward to the opportunity to make my old standbys, or have fun and create new dishes. Most stews and soups, as well as some chowders, are even better made a day or two ahead and reheated, so they can be prepared when you have some free time. Many freeze well. So, browse through the recipes, find a few favorites and enjoy!

A Collection of Healthy Recipes and Menus

Many of us make a New Year's resolution to eat lighter and healthier. Or, perhaps, we just want to take off those extra pounds accumulated over the holidays. These recipes give you healthier choices and include tips for using more whole grains, vegetables and fruits, as well as reducing fats and substituting good fats in most of your cooking without sacrificing flavor.

For suggestions on combining some of the recipes into delicious meals, visit the Healthy Menus page. Eat healthy....and enjoy!
