I’m a newbie. With the above staples I should be able to utilize most of the recipes here…is that correct?

I submitted a recipe via email, as requested, but it looks like it was overlooked because I don’t see it on the list. I sent you an email as well, but I don’t know how often you check it. Sorry you didn’t get it.

I received almost 100 recipes and had to choose only 10. It was a tough job and I wish I could have chosen them all!

Oh, I’m sorry, I guess I misunderstood your post. I thought you were saying that you only received 10 submissions and you pick all of them. That’s totally fine, that’s how competitions go.

Those are some GREAT recipes. Thanks to the ladies who submitted and to you for compiling them all into printable cards!

What a great idea… These recipes look great. I wanted to let you know that I have written an ebook of 30 recipes from a staple recipe list. If you would like a review copy to possibly feature on your site, just let me know. Heidi

Just found this through a web search. Noticed none of the recipe cards have servings listed. How do I know if it will be enough to feed my family?

In a dream vacation to Portland where one plans big road trips to amazing destinations like beaches, Columbia River George, the
vineyards and desert; and the Portland art museum.
You can take advantage of competition among these companies and strike
the best possible deal and make most of your unused car.
Also remember if you do pass a semi trailer make sure you
allow enough room before pulling in front of the truck as he is heavier than you and needs more room to stop.
