Free Holiday Recipes
Posted on Wednesday, November 25th, 2009 at 12:21 pm
Hosting the holidays this year may be a bit of a challenge. I have been looking for good recipes with low cost ingredients that will feed a crowd. Thankfully, there are plenty of free holiday recipe resources.
Have you checked out Allrecipes.com? This free site has many, many recipes. What I really like about it is that the recipes are all rated and reviewed by others. Reviews often contain suggestions for improvements and alternative versions. Plus, these recipes are easily scaled up or down.
Another great source of recipes are free recipe books and booklets. These books can either be downloaded or come through the regular mail. They often include coupons along with the recipes, which is always a good thing, right?
Here are some of my favorite current offers.
