About

Our Recipes

At My Kitchen Escapades, we try to abide by our FOUR principles when creating all recipes: Fun, Flexible, Flavorful, and Family Friendly.

Cooking should always be Fun.  I try not to take myself too seriously, and the same with my recipes.  Cooking should be fun, not a chore (even though it often feels like it).

Sometimes we just need to bend a little.  I try to create recipes with Flexibility in mind, so if you didn’t have a chance to run to the store and grab everything or if you forgot to put something on your list, you can still make something delicious.  That is why we offer substitutions and modifications within our recipes whenever possible.

We want to ensure that your hard work in the kitchen is worth the effort. That is why we take the time to create Flavorful and delicious recipes. There is nothing better than a “Yum!” after that first bite.

Lastly we try and have our recipes be Family Friendly.  Now, you might ask, “Does that mean it is all mac n’ cheese and chicken tenders?”  No, although we do have some great mac n’ cheese recipes.  It means the recipes will be cost-conscious, fast, not overly complicated and easily scalable so you can feed any size family.  We know that no two families have the same taste preferences so we do try and have recipes with a variety of flavors and cuisines.

What you will find on My Kitchen Escapades

  • Recipes that are Fun, Flexible, Flavorful, and Family Friendly.
  • Tips, tricks, substitutions, and modifications for recipes. Home cooking requires some wiggle room and flexibility. Our recipes reflect that.
  • We do have some recipes that use canned, frozen, or prepared ingredients. Our philosophy is to be flexible and family-friendly, and so sometimes, we need to do things the easy way. But I promise the end result is still delicious.
  • Recipes with international flavors.
  • Recipes from every category and for every part of the day, plus some special holiday recipes.

What you won’t find on My Kitchen Escapades

  • Recipes that are too long or complex. Our recipes are made for everyone.
  • Crazy ingredients that are not available at your local grocery store or on Amazon.
  • Equipment you would not have in a typical home kitchen. We have some recipes that use air fryers, InstaPots, and slow cookers, but also provide ways to use a regular oven or stove.
  • Food stylists or photographers. We take all our photos and videos on personal iPhones or GoPros.
