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.

Casual Main Dish Recipes for Summer

These are some of the main dish recipes I love to make in the summer for everyday fare or casual entertaining. Most are light, easy to prepare and budget-friendly. Many of the meats and some of the vegetables are grilled because I enjoy cooking outdoors as much as possible during the summer, although all of the recipes can be made indoors. Additionally, I include seasonal foods such as seafood, summer vegetables, fruits and berries, which are especially tasty and usually less expensive during the local harvest. I hope that you will try some of the recipes and enjoy!

Recipes and Tips for Preserving Foods

Anyone who maintains a garden knows that, in a successful growing season, there are certain vegetables that produce larger yields than a single household can possibly consume. Many of us look forward to the surplus so that we can preserve it to enjoy throughout the year. Posted on my site are some of my favorite recipes for preserving, as well as those using preserved foods, such as canned, frozen or dehydrated vegetables, herbs, pickles and condiments. In addition, I share tips from my own experiences, as well as suggestions for additional sources that provide extensive information on safety procedures.
