Recipes to Try During Quarantine

quarantine recipes

Phew!  What.a.list.  When I asked you all for the best thing you’ve made during quarantine, you all really delivered.  Now, I received hundreds upon hundreds of responses AND also hundred of DMs in response to this question. (I love how you all have been cooking/baking up a storm, too!) And I truly tried my best to parse through them all.  I pulled out the recipes that were mentioned multiple times and ones that really stood out to me as delicious mealtime inspo. So if I didn’t include your recipe, please don’t be upset. Leave it in the comments so we can continue to spread the wealth!  I also included who recommended the recipe (if applicable–I know I missed a few).

By the way, how many of you received the “email chain letter” of quarantine recipes?  I did and I actually forwarded it on but I only received ONE recipe.  Boo.  But also, who still does chain letters?  So in lieu of the archaic chain letter, here’s a compilation of awesome recipes that YOU love from our favorite chefs and food bloggers.  The best part?  I included the link for each recipe, so you can bookmark them.  And I, for one, could use the inspiration right now.  I sorted the recipes by categories, so be sure to print, bookmark, whatever you need to do. This will live on my blog so you can always come back for it.  Bon Appétit!
