You’re Invited to My Blog-Warming!

Introducing...Cooking On the Side!

I’m excited to announce a new addition to my blogging life – meet Cooking On the Side! It’s my new food blog, just launched today.

Cooking On the Side is going to be devoted to those recipes that are printed on the bags and boxes of food staples we all have in our fridges, freezers and pantries. Some of these on-the-package recipes, like the one for the iconic Toll House Cookies, are tried and true favorites that families have made for decades.  But very often folks like myself ignore them altogether. One day recently I decided that it would be a fun project to start “revealing” some of these recipes on a blog. Some, like the Toll House cookies, might be hidden gems. Others might be…well…better left on the package. Either way, on-the-package recipes will finally get the spotlight!

Never fear, I’ll still be coming up with new, creative panini recipes on Panini Happy – it’s not going away. But on the days when I’m not firing up the grill, I hope you’ll join me over at Cooking On the Side for more fun in the kitchen.

Great for you Kathy! Wonderful job. You are an excellent blogger with a great following. How DO you manage all this with the little one?

I can’t wait to see what comes up on the table of your new blog. I am having an “Open House” over at Art and Aioli! Would love to have you!

Very cool, Kathy! I often clip those recipes for later but usually don’t get to them. Maybe you can help us sort through the ones worth trying!

This is a great idea! We see these recipes all the time on cocoa powder, marshmallows, flour, nuts, etc. It would take too long to list it. You will never be without a recipe!

Kathy, this is a great idea for a new blog. I have found that those recipes run about 50-50; some are incredible, others better left untried. I’ll be sure to visit.

I found your blog…. blog hopping over from Pink Saturday! LOL…I love your new blog idea. I have a cookbook that is all about all the recipes thru the years on packages of sugar, flour, etc. And you are right …some are tried and true and some are best left on the package. ~ Lynn
