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.
