Welcome to Culinary Hill!

Around here, your favorite foods, from home-cooked lasagna to Sloppy Joes, from deviled eggs to ice cream cakes, taste even better than you remember, and the recipes are easier to understand, too!

That’s because we love to make recipes that are delicious and meticulously tested without sacrificing an ounce of their authenticity. This is modern home cooking with a Midwestern heart, the kind of food you ate when you were growing up which still has a special place in your heart.

On Culinary Hill, you’ll also learn the skills and tricks for ingredient prep, cooking ahead, menu planning, entertaining, making pantry staples, and using up leftovers. Every recipe on this site is developed, tested, and approved just for you.

Questions or comments about a recipe?

If you have questions or feedback about a recipe, the best place to say something is on the post. That way everyone can see and benefit from our interactions. I love answering reader questions!

However, I don't have any expertise in specialty diets and I'm not a registered dietician. I provide nutrition information within the recipe card, but those are generated by a program and may vary.
