Welcome to Tammy's Recipes!
We all need a little creativity and inspiration, especially in the kitchen! I started this site to encourage you when you're having one of those "I just don't know" days. Browse through the recipe collection (it's ever-growing!) or visit my blog! I hope you find something that looks good.
I'm just an ordinary wife and mom. Here you'll find our favorites: foods we eat regularly that we love! You can also read comments from others who have tried our recipes. My blog features what we've been eating lately. And, you can even sign up to get my new recipes, kitchen tips, and menu plans delivered to your inbox -- for free! :)

Who is Tammy?
I'm Tammy: wife to Joshua and mom to three boys, Yehoshua (2004), Eliyahu (2006), and Moshe (2010) as well as two girls, Ruth (2008) and Channah (2012). Our 6th child is due in November, 2014. My life revolves around our faith and family. :)

When I'm not in the kitchen, doing laundry, or working on homeschooling, I can be found playing or reading with my little ones, stamping homemade cards, drinking tea, having fun organizing, or enjoying a walk outdoors. I do most of my personal blogging here, but you can also find me on Twitter and Facebook. :)

Blog posts about our personal lives are filed under "Our Family". For more about me, see my post titled 27 Random Things About a Now-27-Year-Old, a family photo update and meme, and Bits of My Life. :)
My husband Joshua and I have been married since 2002. He's the technical support behind this website and my encourager in this endeavor. Joshua loves to grill, makes the BEST cheesecakes, and tries new things in the kitchen with me whenever his busy schedule permits! :) We moved to the Seattle area from Ohio in 2008.
We started this website in 2006. My goal is to offer everyday cooking inspiration through my personal kitchen blog and tried and true recipes -- taste tested, husband approved, pictures provided, and community rated!
So, welcome to my online kitchen! Make yourself comfortable, and enjoy your visit! :)
How do I leave a review of a recipe I've tried?
1. Create a user account. The only information required is a user name and email address. The email address you supply won't appear publicly on this website. (We won't spam you!) The other information fields (such as "hobbies", "location", etc.) are optional.
Your user account will allow you to do things like leaving reviews of recipes you've tried, uploading an image to your profile, and leaving comments with your name and picture. You can also send private messages to other users.
2. Log into your user account. On the left-hand side, you will see your name with a private messages inbox and account options. If you click on "my account", you can edit your settings, including your password.
3. After you are logged in, any recipe page you visit will have a review box at the bottom where you can click on a number rating and leave your review. You can only review a recipe one time; after that, the review option disappears. You then have the option of editing your review if needed.
Using Recipes From This Website On Yours
We're always delighted to hear that someone has tried and enjoyed one of our recipes! And it's perfectly fine to post our recipes in your own blog! (As long as you're not, say, posting every single one!)
We appreciate a link to our website when you re-post a recipe from Tammy's Recipes. If you are using our exact recipe (e.g. no alterations made and the instructions we wrote), please include a link to the original recipe page on this website.
Our photos are copyrighted, and are the property of TammysRecipes.com and/or our guest chefs. If you use one of our photos, you must make the photo itself also link to our website (or to that recipe on our website).
Please contact us if you have any questions! Thanks!
Our family, July 2008
