Tips On Where To Find Some Great Fall Recipes

Hi There..... Do you enjoy cooking a little? Or maybe a lot? Do you have some great fall recipes up your sleeve? Or did you come here to get some tips?

Sorry to say so, but I am not the most avid cook..... I can’t say that I ever was..... Safe to say that I do not have any blog posts on great fall recipes of my own πŸ˜„

That reminds me of the time I was a teenager..... We all enjoyed helping mom making special things for the Holidays..... We would, for instance, make our own potato croquettes..... First, my mam would prepare the mashed potatoes and we would dip them in egg white first and then in some breadcrumbs..... And afterward, we would roll them all by hand πŸ˜‹

Did you ever make potato croquettes from scratch like that? I bet you didn't πŸ˜‰

Those were literally about the only times you would find me in the kitchen..... Only on special occasions when we would try out new things or new recipes..... Simple everyday meals didn’t really interest me that much..... My sisters would always do their part and help mom out with cooking throughout the year..... But I hated ordinary meals so badly that I would always try to escape πŸ˜–

That’s why my mom invented a stupid new rule..... If you wanted to take part in the cooking on special occasions..... You would have to have cooked at least 10 meals during the year..... Ooh my, that really didn’t make me happy, not the least bit 😞

Some years I didn’t even make it to 10 cooks..... I know, hard to believe, haha..... 10 times a year doesn't seem that much..... But it was way too much for me πŸ˜‚

Well, at least now you know why I don’t have a food blog..... But that doesn’t mean I am going to deprive you of great recipes..... As Jim Rohn said, ‘To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?' 😁

Thus I solved the problem at hand..... I asked some of my Blogger friends for recipes and before I knew it I had too much of them..... So I am probably going to do another blog post like this soon..... I have always had a problem with turning people down..... Why would you turn them down if you don’t have to? And I am not the only one who seems to think this way..... Steve Wynn said, ‘Money doesn’t make people happy. People make people happy.' 😎

So here are the first fall recipes I picked to share with you today..... They are Dutch recipes, but I will translate the ingredients for you..... You can always use Google Translate if you want to know more..... And if you are really stuck, you can always ask me for help πŸ˜‹

  6. I would love to cook! But sadly I don't have a fully functioning kitchen at home. I only have a slow cooker and my space is too small to have a kitchen. When I finally get the house I want with the right kitchen, I'll keep these in mind.
