Did you know that Food Lion has a great recipe collection on their website? I just found out about it myself. I have already used several of the recipes I found there. The best part about the recipe feature at FoodLion.com is that you can add your own recipes there, too! It’s a great way to save your own recipes right on the same website where you will be shopping for groceries. You can check out the specials each week, then look for recipes using the things that are on sale! How neat is that?
My mother used to make this easy salad all the time. It was one of my favorite things that she made. It doesn’t matter that it was such an easy thing to make, it was still good. I made it for my own kids when they were growing up, and I am sure they make it for their kids now. It is amazing to me how a quick, easy to prepare recipe can be filled with so much love and so many memories.
I added my Cheesey Pear Salad recipe to the Food Lion Recipe Portal. It was easy as one, two, three! You just enter the ingredients, one on each line provided. Then, you type in the directions or instructions on how to put your recipe together. Then, the website asks for a preparation time and a cook time. You add a picture of the finished dish, and tag the recipe with any of the choices they have listed, and submit. In a day or two, your famous recipe will show up for everyone to share and make it for their own family! You can search for my recipe on the Food Lion site using tags I used when I create the recipe: gluten free, diabetic, low calorie, southern, salad. Or, look for recipes using pears.
If you’re looking for recipes to make for your family, you have so many different ways to search for them. You can search for pork, chicken, beef; search by occasion; search by course such as breakfast or appetizers; search by ingredients; or by region. I think it is just great that if you check the online sales flier and see that chicken breasts are on sale, you can then search by chicken breast as the ingredient to find dozens of recipes to try. You can add ingredients you see in the recipe to your shopping list so that when you get ready to cook, you have everything on hand. I’ve been cooking for over 40 years, and still have times when I forget things at the store, so I think this is so cool!
