Menu Mondays: February 17- 24, 2014

This week I received my menu inspiration from the

Taste of Home website.  

Before my days of using the Internet & Food Network for cooking influence- I would save each TOH magazine and insert with recipe index side up in a sheet protector w/my favorite recipes highlighted and then place 2 years worth of issues into a 3-Ring binder. 

Yeah, I have always been a geek that way, LOL! That is also how I would plan my freezer cooking sessions and basically how I learned to cook and keep a house before we got cable TV and my beloved Internet. 

In honor of TOH magazine & the great reading material plus motivation this magazine provides, I dedicate my menu week~

Homemade Pumpkin Doughnuts, Bagels w/cream cheese, English Muffins w/homemade Blueberry Preserves, Fresh Fruit, Oatmeal with optional Stir-Ins, Cold Cereal, Pancakes, Waffles, or Egg "style" of choice. Non-Dairy Blue, Vitamin C, or Green Smoothies, & water essences.

  1. I had years of TOH and sister magazines, was getting to much to keep up with so thought I would just tear out the recipes I wanted. Did that for a while, even have a recipe box of just TOH recipes. Now...have found out that since I subscribe to the magazine, can log in to the website and access any recipe printed. Now I make a folder on the computer, save everything that I want to try for the week, and it is much easier.

    1. Ty for taking time to comment Dianna!! I try to post new recipes, menu and DIY-Pinterest experiments regularly, please follow me to keep in the loop!!

      I too LOVE TOH!! I just go onto the web site and enter the ingredients I have on hand in the search and find many delicious recipes like the ones I used this week. I haven't been a subscriber in 4 years or day I might renew, but with all the recipes online it's hard to validate spending the money!
