2 Great Recipe Websites

When you are looking for an easy, low cost, nutritious recipe, I hope you browse our SpendSmart.Eat Smart recipe site.  If you cannot find what you are looking for consider trying these two sites: and  They are both sponsored by other land-grant universities, whose purpose like ISU Extension, is to turn university research into learning opportunities.

The Food Hero site from Oregon State University Extension provides fast and affordable recipes along with fun tips.  If you sign up for a free membership, you can save your favorite recipes, tailor them for the number of people in your family, and create a custom shopping list.  You can also watch before and after videos of a family who is challenged to include more fruits and vegetables into their family meals.

Quick and Healthy Recipes from Families, Food & Fitness is part of Cooperative Extensions Families, Food and Fitness, a network of land grant universities across America. This site provides many resources to help you eat more fruits and vegetables, move more, prepare more meals at home, right size your portions and tame the tube.

An advanced search function helps you search for recipes based on meal type, season, low-fat, low sodium; low calorie, quick and easy and kid-friendly, title, ingredient, cook time/prep time, and rating.
