Recipe Collection

elow is a collection of recipes that have been published on Feast & Merriment dating as far back at 2007, when I first started this little blog site.

I want you to know that you can trust these recipes, because I do. In fact, that’s why I started Feast & Merriment. I wanted to place to reference my favorite recipes, whether created by me or by another author, so I could refer back to them and trust them because I enjoyed it enough that I took the time to write about it.

I have tried each one of these recipes over and over and am confident in them.  After all, publishing recipes for others to rely on is not something I do lightly.

I am humbled by the fact that everyone from close friends to unknown digital followers turn to me for advise on what to cook and how to do it.

I share this personal reflection with you because I want you to know that you can trust the recipes I have published across this site. They are here for me, and for you. The only thing I ask in return is if you had a great experience with a recipe you found here, please leave a rating and review so others are also inspired to feast!
