I think food should be simple to prepare and beautiful to taste.  The best quality, freshest ingredients you can get, cooked simply and with love will always taste amazing.

Every meal can be and should be special, not because it has taken you hours of work in the kitchen, but because what you cook demonstrates the love and care you have for the people who sit at your table.

Please try some of my recipes and tell me what you think. I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Margaret you have a great blog here. I need to take the time to look it over more. The photos are displaying great food creations you have made, all look yummy.

    Thanks as well for following Splendid Recipes and More.

    I look forward to more from Simple Food!! ;)


  2. Hi Margaret,
    May I ask what feature (or process steps) you use to make uniform tiles of your recipe/photos, as you have done on this post, in which a person can click on to go to the recipes. I have a ‘Recipe Index’ in which I use the ‘Create Gallery’ feature, which takes you to the recipe by only clicking on the captions. I have used ‘Thumbnail Grid’ feature, but only get 3 photos per row, which is not enough and they don’t come out uniformly.
    I would appreciate it if you would instruct me on this. If you do not want to take space here to do so, please respond to me through my ‘Contact’ page and delete this message as well.
    I thank you in advance for your kindness. Fae.

    • Thanks so much Sandra. It’s taken me a little while to find time to do what’s required in accepting the award. LOts of fun thinking up questions and searching out the newish, smallish blogs I enjoy following. margaret

  3. These pictures are so fresh and colorful! I will try the Tzatziki soon for sure. I, too, would like to find my inner Greek ;) I bet it’s fantastic with souvlaki on the side…

    • Thanks so much. Glad you like my blog. Love yours too! Let me know how you get on if you try out some of my recipes. I love to hear about it. margaret
