Hello, I’m Julie Link. Creator of The Recipe Life!
Born into a large family and raised in small-town Ohio, cooking crowd-pleasing dishes has been a must my entire life! I can still remember the smell of my mom’s famous Mash Potato Cinnamon Rolls baking so very early in the morning. And I will always appreciate how she made us three solid meals a day, like her famous but simple Spaghetti, while running a household, managing a dairy farm, and wrangling a small army of kids! My mother was a blessing, and I simply learned from the best!
In turn, I am blessed to be able to pass on that hidden talent now, as I am a wife and mom of 5 beautiful kids, it’s necessary to have quick meals that make everyone want to finish their plates. We are into the basics like this Ground Beef and Potato Casserole and delicious and flavorful soups. And my kids can never have too many snacks. This Apple Dip and Two-Ingredient Potato Chip Dip are perfect for after-school munching or a quick side to your next house party. Finally, no day is complete without amazing desserts. From simple Peanut Butter Cheerio Bars to this Gooey Chocolate Carmel Fantasy, I strive to bring my family desserts that can be easily made and consumed in a flash!
