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: foodhero.com and http://www.quickhealthyrecipes.msstate.edu/index.php. They are both sponsored by other land-grant universities, whose purpose like ISU Extension, is to turn university research into learning opportunities.
