One of the programs that some of us in University of Missouri Extension are teaching is called Cooking Matters. Participants learn about healthy eating, food budgeting, and cooking techniques. One of the best things about the class is the hands-on preparation of yummy recipes and trying new foods!

Cooking Matters has a website with a great page on tips and recipes. I recently found this page, bookmarked it for my use, and wanted to share it with others.

On here you will find:

  • Pantry staples to keep on hand
  • 10 tips for wasting less food
  • Asian inspired, soul food, and fall/winter recipes
  • Convenience foods, packaged foods, and spring recipes (I recommend the black bean brownies)
  • Tips for making your favorite recipes healthier
  • Cold weather favorites
  • Recipes for fall and winter holiday celebration meals (try the brown rice and orange salad)
  • Super Bowl party on a budget (timely and great info)
  • Summer party dips (good for anytime of year, especially the hummus)
  • Back to school snacks
