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.

Quick and Easy Main Dish Recipes

No matter how much we love to cook, we all need recipes that are suitable for those occasions when there is either little room in the schedule for cooking or when we just do not want to spend too much time in the kitchen. This is a collection of some of my favorite main dish recipes that I consider quick and easy to make. Preparation is minimal, cooking time is generally 30 to 45 minutes but no more than one hour and little supervision is required during the cooking process. Many of the dishes are appropriate for everyday family dinners, while others can be served as entrées for special occasions or entertaining. I hope you will try some and make them your favorites.

Potluck Recipes

I love a potluck or covered dish gathering, whether for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. There is always a wide variety of foods from which to choose and I usually find something new and interesting. For this page, I have listed some of my favorite personal recipes that travel well, some of which are not typically found on a potluck buffet, others that are my versions of common dishes. Many are quick and easy, others take a bit more time to prepare, most of which is hands-off cooking. In addition to my own recipes, I posted quite a few shared family recipes for potluck foods submitted by visitors to the site. I hope you will try a few and enjoy!
