Welcome to The Recipe Patch where you will find recipes to make life easy and delicious!
Welcome to The Recipe Patch!
My name is Mary and I am so happy you stopped by.
I am a self taught cook, who in my younger years used to burn everything I made. Cooking was the last thing I wanted to do. Then I grew up, got married and decided I needed to learn how to cook grown up meals. You know, more than hot dogs, pasta and chicken nuggets. Learning to cook and bake became very exciting to me .
I started The Recipe Patch a few years ago as a hobby of sorts and a way to save and share my recipes.
Life is soooo busy and there is so much to do everyday. After years of meal planning and grocery shopping sometimes you need a change. Try some new recipes. I have added some easy and quick recipes that don’t compromise on taste. I hope you try some.
I love cooking and gardening. I enjoy them together when weather allows me to take great produce from the garden and incorporate it in my menus for healthy and delicious recipes, and foods that are nutritional. To me there is always room for dessert so you can find some special goodies here too.
My husband says it always smells great in my kitchen. The house is always filled with great aromas that find their way through out, drawing people into the kitchen, the heart of my home. I look at Cooking or baking for someone as an expression of love.
The Recipe Patch is full of recipes for light and easy meals, delicious treats, comfort food, and garden fresh recipes. I like baking in the winter on a snowy day waiting for that time in spring when the weather breaks and when there isn’t huge piles of snow left on the ground here in Central New York. In the Spring the sound of the birds singing early in the morning wake us up to new beginnings each day. Gardening reminds me of new life and a chance to watch dormant seeds break through the ground to grow into fruit and produce that can be made into great recipes to share.
I am happy you are here and hope to make your life easier, and more delicious with some new recipes. Thank you for letting me share my story and my heart with you.
At The Recipe Patch, and I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s exciting!
