Food Prep Inspiration

Food Prep Inspiration 7/12/19



 Mom’s been trying new recipes lately.  She finds them in a free little magazine that arrives in her mailbox once a week.  Last weekend when Mom and Dad joined us at our campsite, she brought along samples of the caramel roll-ups she had made the day before.  With enthusiasm in her voice, she told me how she was planning to try a new salad recipe from the magazine.  Mom is having fun finding inspiration for new foods each week.

Whether you consider food preparation a chore, a joy, or a creative outlet, you probably appreciate new ideas, too.  Look no further!  NDSU Extension offers a treasure trove of recipes and food prep publications to inspire you!
