What's For Dinner Tonight?
Wednesday, January 4, 2012 • Posted January 4, 2012

If one of your New Year’s resolutions are to eat together more as a family, to eat healthier, and/or to cook more and eat out less, Extension has a great resource that will help you with any of those! I know I’ve written about it before, but now I have directions on how to subscribe to get an email every time they do a new recipe/video. is a website with a lot of “uTube” type video recipe demonstrations, with a healthy simple meal made from regular, easy to find ingredients. If you go to the website, in the grey box section (on the right side)at the very bottom, there will be a link that says “Subscribe to receive email updates of new videos and recipes.” Click on “Subscribe” and it will create an automatic email to send to them, and then they will send you emails periodically with the new recipes! You can see the recipe demonstration and also get the printed recipe. Here is an example of the type of recipes you’ll find:
