Hi! I'm Judy, and I created to share budget-friendly and family-friendly recipes that are simple, easy, and delicious!

You can enjoy wonderful meals at home that are not time-consuming and better for you because you control what ingredients are in them. That's a win!

I work outside the home, so I love having quick and easy meals that only require a little bit of time to prepare. Our lives are busy, and simple dinner recipes help get food on the table faster.

How I Decided On The Name - Recipes Simple

My mom was a great cook, and even though she worked full-time when I was growing up, she always made sure we enjoyed a home-cooked meal. She always cooked from scratch.

Picture of my mom.

Every summer, she would freeze and can her own vegetables, so we always enjoyed good food year round! I spent many summers shucking corn on the front porch.

She always used to tell me to "keep recipes simple," and that's how I decided on the name for my blog.

She passed away from Alzheimer's in July 2018, and we miss her so much, but thankfully, she passed some of her recipes on to me and my daughter. Her recipes are included here.

What Will You Find At Recipes Simple?

  • You will find hundreds of delicious recipes that are easy to make using simple ingredients.
  • Most of the recipes you'll find here are based on my family's tastes and preferences. Thankfully we like a wide variety of food so there are lots of delicious recipes to choose from!
  • I also feature recipes from family members passed down from generations.

When I have some free time I enjoy reading, working in the flower beds, relaxing in our screened-in porch on the swing, going for walks and just being outside.

But most of all, I love spoiling my grandsons, who were born in 2019 and 2021. They are so much fun!
