Cooking For a Crowd

Posted By Smockity Frocks On April 22, 2010 @ 7:00 am In 4 Moms,Recipes | 13 Comments



┬áThis week the 4 Moms [2]are sharing recipes and tips on cooking for a crowd, and by crowd, I mean feeding my family of soon to be 10. For company, I use my old stand bys and double them. If you have a “normal” size family, you can still use these recipes, but you’ll want to cut them in half or plan on eating the same meal all week.

I generally like to go with casseroles or one dish dinners for a company size crowd, since I can make my budget stretch more with additions of rice or pasta.

Here are a few of our favorite recipes:



  • Fall Fry [9]
