So many recipes. So little time. It’s this big problem I have right now. I have at least seven new recipes or cooking tips that I am excited to share with you…and I just don’t feel like spreading them out over the course of several weeks.
When a girl needs to share her healthy(er) chocolate fudge frosting recipe, she should not have to hold back. But she’s also been promising to share how to cook brown rice and she has this really cool tip about squash and she really should stop writing in third person but now that she’s started it’s just a little bit hard to stop.
She’s – I’m done now.
So, brace yourself, arm yourself, prepare yourself. Beginning tomorrow evening and going on through Friday the 29th, I’ll begin sharing a parade of recipes and cooking tips that I hope you will find as exciting as I do. You’ll need to check back in several times a day to keep up. And while I currently have seven recipes and tips lined up to share, you just never know when something else might just join the parade. There may even be a giveaway or two.
Beyond all the recipes and cooking tips, there will be a few other non-food related posts too. Wowza. Are you up for it all?
The most fun part of the parade will be on Friday, October 29. That’s the day YOU get to share one or more of your favorite recipes with all of us! I’ll post a Mr. Linky with my final recipe for the week and give you a chance to link up your recipe(s) too! There is no theme or criteria about which recipe or recipes you can share with us. Just share one or some of your favorite recipes! By the end of this week, we’ll all have so many new ideas of yummy dishes and treats to make and bake…there will be Heavenly Homemakers all over the world with tomato sauce in their hair, egg dripping down their elbows and frosting stuck to their chins. Oh how I love being party to that.
Please tell all (yes – every single one) of your friends to come and join the fun and come get new recipe ideas! We’re talking kid friendly, ingredient easy, mama happy recipes that are simple, tasty, healthy and fun. It all starts Sunday night, October 24.
Should I start with a sweet, or a savory recipe?! Oh, so many new recipes…
Julie H says
Sweet recipe, please. Um, like that yummy-looking chocolate icing. ;)
I’m lovin it already! I love new recipes!
What about us non-bloggers? Can we send out recipes to you?
When I post the link up on Friday, just leave your recipe(s) in the comment section. We’ll be able to swipe ’em that way!! :)
I’ve got to say… savory first.
Chocolate first, please!!!! Always do the chocolate first.
Ooh, ooh, something sweet please! This girl has a TERRIBLE sweet tooth, and needs to find ways to curb it in a healthier way!
This is such a great idea! How fun! I would be happy with sweet or savory starting off the parade :) Looking forward to all the new ideas!
I am looking forward to it!
I don’t care which comes first just bring ’em on! I look forward to all of your recipes, Laura, and keep them all. Looking forward to a crazy fun week of recipes.

Just wanted to let you know that my husband said he would eat Taco Potatoes every night of the week. Also, my little son eats a whole one by himself…this, from a kid who subsists almost entirely on bananas.

I am so excited about your parade. Your recipes have been such as blessing as I try to change my family’s eating habits!
Love your recipes. My kids do too!
I’ve been snagging recipes off your site for months now, so whatever you offer is great for me! Haven’t quite gotten myself to 100% whole wheat in your recipes yet, but I’m about 2/3 of the way there. It’s a process, right?
Yay, I will definitely be sharing this post with my friends so
they can join in on the fun too!
I am loving your recipes and look forward to more. I don’t grind my own flour but love King Arthurs Whole White Wheat and my family doesn’t know the difference. Thanks so much.
Pam Frohn says
Yeah! Your food posts are always my favorites! Bring em on!
YOu have such wonderful recipes! I’m looking forward to trying some more…I have my recipe cards ready!
I am getting all my favorite’s ready to post on Friday :)
Me and my family have really enjoyed all the recipes we tried so far. I love learning more recipes. Thanks
Bethany B. says
Hoooray! What fun- I’m excited to add more recipes to my arsenal. Great idea!
I made homemade whole wheat hamburger buns this past weekend and someone says “who makes their own BUNS?” I said, “heavenly homemakers…that’s who!”
What a great idea! Super excited about this :D
Looking forward to all the recipes and tips!
I’m looking forward to the new recipe ideas!!
Love it when you go post happy! They are always interesting, funny, touching or yummy…
Any and all are wonderful!
Ashley Godoy says
Your tips and recipes make my day! Me and my sister call back and forth or visit eachother asking, “Have you tried anything of Laura’s this week?” We live in Florida and LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog and ideas. She has 2 little girls who have enjoyed it all too! Just wanted to let you know…you make an impact in our little world in Florida. It’s been fun!
Amy in SC says
Thank you so much! I LOVE new recipes!!
I will put in a vote for a “savory” recipe since we don’t lack for sweets here =) Thanks, Laura!
Merry Jo says
I’m in the “anything chocolate first” camp myself. :)

Very excited to try some new recipes :-)
Awesome! I’ll share about this on my blog! Thanks! Love your recipes!

sweet healthy recipes would be best. I’m trying to figure out good ways to indulge without sending my blood sugar soaring!
Laurie Plath says

Jessie Chilson says
I have never tried a recipe from you I didn’t like!

Can’t wait to see all the new ideas!!
I can never have too many recipes to try! This will be fun.
Amy C. says
Savory recipe! It seems my hubby’s tired of Lasagna as a go-to entertaining recipe. I’d love a few staple dishes for main. Or side. Or both. YUM!
I’m in a rut and need some new ideas. This is going to be fun!
I would love the chicken book. I am so excited to see all the recipes that are getting posted this week!
I’m so excited about this…I even told my hubby that I was looking forward to trying some of your new recipes in the next couple of weeks. *giddy with excitement*
Can’t wait! Your recipes always look yummy…
A savory one next & the brown rice doesn’t count. :)
Reason #1 Why I Read Laura’s Blog: Her ReCiPeS!! :) So excited!
Chocolate fudge please!
Would love to have “What to do with the Cow…”
Yay, I’m so excited to see all the new recipes, when I need a recipe I always look here first. :)
Amy W says

I’m loving all of your tips, Laura! Please, keep them coming.
Looking forward to more this week!
…all the way from Australia, I love reading your website!! Thanks for all your recipes & ideas. It helps me heaps and I really enjoy learning from your experience.
Bless you. :)
Amanda Sikes says
This is a great way to pass this last week before I deliver baby #5!!!! Lots of rest and putting my feet up so lots of time to comment and read!!
Looking forward to it.
Can we “win a week with Laura at our house” as the next giveaway? I just feel like if I could do some of this stuff right beside you a couple of times I’d be leaps and bounds ahead in managing my kitchen challenges. Sometimes I just wish I could see it in action… in MY kitchen in action.
Yea, what a great idea, but oh if I do win how do I choose just one book, Thanks again Laura, one of the most encouraging and helpful sites, i just have to visit every day.
I’m ready for a savory!!
Sara R. says
Yay! I’m excited!
Great idea! Bring on the recipes!
Can never get enough great recipes. Looking forward to the week ahead!
Bring it on Laura! Can’t wait to see all the yumminess heading our way :)
I would love to be a winner!
I think I’m a recipe addict! Thanks for this! I’d also like to win your Cooking in the Kitchen with Chicken book!!
I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for more of your recipes—-they’re the best!!!
Nissa Morgan says
Can’t wait to see all the new ideas and recipes..I need all the help I can get!!
I love reading all your posts! This will just be another reason!
Thank you so much for your website. It is truly a blessing to our family. I’ve already tried many of your recipes and I look forward to more. I love learning how to cook with real foods.
HI. I love trying new recipes.
Charlotte Moore says
You have the most interesting site I have ever read. Such good sounding recipes and healthy at that. I do grind my own wheat and use a lot of sucanat. I wish I could say we are 100% totally healthy eaters, but we are not.
I do have my vanilla extract going and it has been for 2 months. It has been such a joke about us buying booze. We have had many laughs. It is smelling good.
Looking forward to new recipes!
Yeah! More recipes!
Some dairy-free (savory) recipes would be great.
I would love to win one of your ebooks! There are so many that look good!
This is already tons of fun–wish you could post this much all of the time!
This is so much fun! What a great idea.
