Welcome to A1 Recipes 4 U. I’m Kathy, both a wife and mother, and together with my husband Mike run this site. With a husband and kids I seem to spend a good deal of my time in the kitchen preparing meals. In additional we have a rather large family and also seem to play host for all the major holidays which means more time cooking.

I don’t know about your family but I have a handful of picky eaters on my hands. My family loves to eat but quickly grows tired of the same old meals. This has created quite a challenge for me as I am always trying new variations of my recipes, and it isn’t only for dinner but for breakfast, lunch, desserts and snacks as well. Over the last several years our country seems to be adopting a healthier diet so I have also began creating a healthier version of many of my recipes.

Over my years in the kitchen I’ve complied quite a large collection of recipes. Of course not all of these were successful so, all of the recipes I continue to use are family (and husband) approved.  I decided to share some of our recipes on our site but since I am busy creating and adjusting the recipes my husband Mike is going to publish them for me. Although most of the recipes you’ll find here are mine, there are a few that have been handed down through the family but are still some of our favorites.

Take a look around and hopefully you will find something you like. We will continue to add new recipes as time permits however; we do have a house full of kids and jobs as well. Check back with us from time to time and see if there is something new you can use.
