I'm looking for some people to share recipes with. I just joined but I'm totally addicted and adding my own recipes as fast as I can! I'm hoping this site will help with the grocery shopping and planning ahead for longer stretches. We eat a real foods diet and most things are made from scratch. Please add me to your list so we can share recipes!

    Looking forward to seeing what you have. I'm trying my best to start cooking as much "real food" as possible.

    Woo-hoo! I have 4 picky kids and both my husband and myself work full-time, and I am really excited about making dinners healthier and less stressful! :) I don't have a whole lot of recipes up, but will add things as I can!

    Not sure what defines real food, but you can add me. I tend to err on the homemade side of food.

    I make pretty much everything from scratch and try to feed my family mostly traditional, real foods (ala Weston A. Price Foundation). I use real butter, lard, olive oil, and coconut oil for fats and try to avoid vegetable oils and packaged food recipes (e.g. requiring refrigerator biscuits or ritz cracker toppings). I have a lot of recipes added to P2E -- about 800 so far, but I do try to be moderate too, so not every recipe is perfectly healthy. :) If that sounds like recipes you would be interested in, feel free to add me as a friend, too.

    I have a cookbook I wrote containing over 800 recipes/tutorials/etc. of all from scratch cooking. I'll be adding recipes from that to my site and am wondering if I exported all of the recipes could others upload the file and have all the recipes in their own collection?

    Actually, if you have all the recipes in your account, anyone that you become "friends" with here would have instant access. It is a really nice feature.

    You can export it as well. It exports in a .csv file. Since it's excel, it's kinda messy, but it's there and pretty easy to use.

    It's a nice feature. If you were to decide that you didn't want PTE anymore, you can export all the recipes you've imported and added. It's found under the account tab.

    I'd love to add you guys as friends, please add me! Only have about 90 recipes added so far, but I'm always adding more. We cook from scratch and my husband and I eat lowcarbish/ paleo-lite diet and our kids are both picky.

    My hubby and I just started a Paleo/Primal (can't give up my raw milk!) challenge. I'm hoping to have only grain-free recipes in P2E...

    My family just started a whole foods diet after watching some pretty disturbing documentaries over the holidays (like Food, Inc)! I also just joined this site so I am starting to upload recipes. I could sure use a lot more, though, to help us be successful with this new way of eating.

    I try to make most everything we eat. Mostly real food - still trying to get away from AP flour and refined sugars in our treats. But otherwise whole grain, full fat, homemade food - please add me!

    I would love to be added as well. I am new to "real food" and also to cooking at all, but I'm committed to the process and learning fast.

    I'm also OBSESSED with reading "real food" blogs, so even though I'm new to PTE, I have a ton of recipes imported already.

    The 'Real Food' philosophy is what attracted me to try this site. I just started the trial and don't have too many recipes on here yet (I'm afraid to invest too much time until I know it's the right planner for me), but I would love to connect with others who prefer to cook from scratch and with wholesome ingredients.
