Hello and welcome to my Open Recipe Box! I do get asked that question, “Why did I start this?” “Why am I doing this?” It is not for any profit. Well, I guess it is because I have all these great recipes I’ve saved through the years that I just have to share them! I am always testing new recipes too.
“Can I have that recipe?” is a question I hear often and one I’ve asked many great cooks and bakers myself over the years. I’ve always believed in freely sharing recipes. After all, what good is keeping a recipe you like to yourself?
These are my actual recipes cards but my cookbook collection really needs an entire room with shelves just for them! So I wanted a place for family and friends to easily get my tried and true, old and new recipes.
I love SUPER FAST RECIPES! To me that means no more than 10 minutes from start to finish!
I hope you like it here and come back often to check my posts!! I sure do appreciate your likes and comments right here on the webpage even more than on the facebook page.
Please let me know if you tried a recipe from my box! Even send me a picture of something you made from here and I will post it!
Happy cooking, happy baking, and enjoy!
True! It’s usually “in” Rhode Island and “on” Long Island! LOL
This is a wonderful site! Your recipes look very good. It is so nice of you to share your recipes. I love the added photos.
I am especially glad you have an egg biscuit recipe since we cannot find my mom’s recipe (she too had boxes of recipes…they are in my basement.) I will have to make them.
So is the milkman story about my dad? (i never knew that!)
Thanks, Carolyn! Glad about the egg biscuit recipe, you will like this one. Oh yes, that was your Dad! I edited the story now, so that is clear it was my dear Uncle Tony! He never failed to sit down and chat for a few minutes with coffee and whatever my Mom had on the stove. He loved to talk! I have great memories of those mornings! What a kind, loving, funny, sweetheart of a man he was!
Loved this! I look for low cal and quick dinners ..the combo is a challenge. I enjoy this site and will visit often .Ill look forward to a low cal cheese cake too 🙂
Glad you like it, Tricia and thanks for the compliment! Yes, low cal, quick, and it’s got to be so delicious no one knows it’s low cal or quick! LOL 🙂
Looks good ma. I always enjoyed the fruits of all your cooking! Now with my weight loss plan I have to have no more than 20gm of carbs and 1000 calories per day…very difficult with an Italian mom, especially since i love all the sweets. Maybe when we come you can make some things with splenda for me? Lol! See you soon. Love you!
Thanks, Brian and I will! … and I will post low sugar ones and low carb ones too, for you and for me!
Maybe Patsy can come up with low-sugar variation of her famous cheesecake?
Looks very good auntie
thanks, Trish! love you!
