So, after much looking around and playing around with different websites and whatnot, I have decided on this theme for our place to look up shared recipes from our “What’s On The Menu?” group page. You can click on the drop down bar to the right to search by category, or simply just browse through the pages.
As far as our group on facebook, we will keep that going. It is a great place for talking about our dinner ideas and getting tips, help, and feedback. So, as your dish becomes popular and/or is requested, please continue to post it as a Doc. Every few days, or maybe once a week, I will add them to this blog and then remove them from the Docs.
Please keep inviting your friends and spread the word! The more we have involved, the more options and variations we’ll get. If you have further ideas or suggestions for this lay out, please let me know.

The History of “What’s On The Menu?”
My name is Joanna and my favorite place to be is in my kitchen. I keep a personal blog where I updated what my upcoming dinner ideas were and shared recipes with whomever was interested. I was always eager to pass along any kind of recipe-chain-emails that went around as well because I always wanted to know what other women were making for dinner too so I could broaden my dinner horizons.
How many times did I wonder, “What am I going to put on this weeks menu???”
So, with the encouragement of a wonderful friend, I founded a group on facebook as a place to share what I was having for dinner. I invited my friends, (and their friends, etc) to partake in the discussion of food and sharing recipes with anyone who might be interested. The group is called “What’s On The Menu?” and was kicked off in November 2010.
We are a fast growing group of almost 200 women now, all looking for exciting, new things to make for dinner. We have so much fun posting meal plans and discussing recipes on our page! But, it has taken off so quickly and has kind of outgrown what we needed in order to really keep track of our selection of recipes. After discussion with the other ladies on a resolution to this problem, I established this, our “sister page” to post our shared recipes and keep them organized and easier to search through. 🙂
