Ingredients & Instructions is all you’ll find here

Easy, healthy and delicious recipes to make life easier.

Our go-to recipes

Have you ever found a photo of a dish that looks not only delish but also easy, healthy, manageable, and like the kids will actually eat it? But when you click to view the recipe you instead find 10 paragraphs on what inspired the recipe, setting the mood, the local grocer, and family food allergies. This is not easier, this is bulls***.

That feeling was the inspiration for Just the Recipe.

Ingredients and Instructions. That’s all you’ll find here. No one has time to read a dissertation before finally finding the actual recipe. 
See one you like (trust us, you’ll like it). Just browse and get cooking.

We will post 2-4 new recipes weekly.
