Instead of posting a new recipe I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes websites.

You can Sign up for free.  I like to use the search bar at the top to find what I am looking for. So for example, if you'd like to make lasagna, then type in lasagna.  Then see the "Sort By" and click on "Rating" that way you'll find the lasagna recipes with the highest ratings.

If you upgrade your membership you can search for recipes according to their nutritional content, such as Fat, Cholesterol, sodium, protein, etc...
The memberships are available in 6 months, 1 year and 2 year memberships.

You even have a Recipe Box, so you can save your favorite recipes, or ones that you have tried or would like to try.

You can also add the ingredients to a shopping list, which you can then print.

You can add particular cooks to the "Cooks I like", which is great for when you find a cook that makes many recipes which you enjoy.

There are lots of great tools and articles on this site and I find it easy to use.

Bon Apetit!
