NEW: Browse all recipes In Erika's Kitchen

  • Pin It

I've finally compiled a full list of all the recipes here In Erika's Kitchen. You've always been able to search by keywords or click on one of the words in the "Find It" tag cloud. Now you can also browse through a complete categorized list by clicking on "recipe index" under the green banner at the top of each page.

In case you're wondering, I created my recipe index by hand. No fancy whiz-bang apps helping out here. Just me, going post by post back through the archives, cutting and pasting each recipe title into the categories in which it belongs.

The recipes are divided thus:
  • Appetizers
  • Beans
  • Beef
  • Bread
  • Cheese
  • Cake
  • Chocolate
  • Cookies
  • Drinks
  • Eggs
  • Fish and shellfish
  • Fruit
  • Muffins and biscuits
  • Pasta
  • Pie
  • Pizza
  • Pork
  • Potatoes
  • Poultry - chicken, turkey, duck
  • Rice
  • Salad
  • Sauces - dips, spreads, dressings
  • Sides
  • Snacks
  • Soup
  • Truffles
  • Vegetables
  • Vegetarian
I learned something very interesting about my food tendencies during this project. Guess which categories had the most entries? Not the sweet stuff (cake, cookies, chocolate, pie). And not my weaknesses (pasta, rice, potatoes, bread). And not the proteins, either.

Yes, the fattest categories in my index are fruit and vegetables. Does that make In Erika's Kitchen a health food blog? Not exactly. But it does reflect my style of cooking and eating.

Note to self for 2012: Post more chocolate, chicken and pizza recipes!
