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!

Looking for a recipe variation?

I accept some requests for recipe variations on individual posts (it won't happen IMMEDIATELY, but I can add it to my list for the test kitchen). So many readers wanted to add blueberries to my Lemon Bundt Cake recipe that now there is a Lemon Blueberry Cake recipe on the site!

I usually don't, however, test recipe variations around specific dietary issues (such as making a recipe gluten free or paleo or something like that). There are SO many blogs that offer these recipes and I don't have any kind of nutritional expertise to offer in that area.
