Something New For Dinner is a food and cooking blog that celebrates family, friends and great food.

We are a mother-daughter partnership that started in 2012. I create the content, recipes, writing and photography, and my daughter Lauren provides all things technical and marketing, as she is an online marketing and web development expert. It is our goal to help you learn to cook more confidently, add interesting variety to your diet and kitchen life and make cooking fun, healthy, communal and delicious.

Our website has nearly 400 recipes and almost 250 articles on cooking techniques, ingredients, health and nutrition information, table-top flower arranging and travel information and tips. Patreon gives us a vehicle for covering our never-ending technical expenses, including hosting, website updates, and software subscriptions. Patreon also enables us to provide our most loyal readers deeper and more extensive assistance:
  • Twice-monthly articles on recipes, techniques, experiments, and breakthroughs
  • More new recipes, with a special focus on simple and easy
  • Meal and entertaining plans
  • E-cookbooks
  • Personalized answers to your cooking and meal planning questions

We are most grateful for our wonderful readers and are honored every time you visit our site, cook our recipes, refer us to your friends and send in comments, recipe ratings and cooking questions. Thank you for being a part of our lives and for all your incredible support. 

Please enjoy our short video It All Starts Somewhere providing a backwards documentation of a dinner party we threw to celebrate our family and friends. We hope to inspire many meals for your family and friends. Spread the love and cook with your children, your spouse and your friends. Don’t worry if you flub a meal, it will make a good story. Turn up the music, pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy. Always enjoy!
