Most of us love food. For many of us, cooking up great recipes is how we celebrate, show our love and share our lives and our homes. Some of my best times certainly involve sharing delicious food with friends and family.

I am a strong believer that delicious doesn’t have to mean difficult. My easy recipes really are easy to make and easy to bake.

This site is my passion and I try to bring you the best recipes I can find. Some are my own, but many come from friends, family and you – the visitors to this site, who share their favorite quick and easy recipes for everything from appetizers to desserts.

We’ll discuss cooking and nutrition too. I want to learn more and more about why certain foods, herbs and spices are so good for us. As I learn I’ll be sharing it all with you as well as fabulous recipes using those foods. From super foods and healthy eating, to nutrition tips, diabetic and gluten free recipes, you will find it all here at Cookingnook.com.

So What Do the Forks Mean?

As you visit the site, you will notice our 5 Fork rating system on each recipe page. You can see them beside each recipe in the slider above. It’s a taste rating system, not difficulty. All of our recipes really are pretty easy, and I always try to give you tips to make them even easier. The forks represent how good other visitors have thought this recipe is. Please feel free to rate the recipes.

And don’t forget to share your own favorite recipes with others in the CookingNook community.

Thanks for visiting. Don’t forget to sign up for updates. Plus, I would love you to join me on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter so you don’t miss a single delicious recipe. Who knows? It could just be your next favorite thing.
