Can’t Find a Recipe?

Can’t Find the Recipe You Were Looking For?

Recipe Location Help

So many times I see people coming to the blog from search engines looking for a specific recipe.

Many times, those recipes are already posted here at Palatable Pastime, but other times they are not. And even so, I have a lot of those recipes at different places online, but you may not have found them here (yet!) I have been publishing recipes to the internet for over ten years. So you can imagine there is quite a collection!๐Ÿ™‚

If you don’t see the recipe you are looking for, please leave a comment below.

If it is something I have and can point you to, I will leave a link for you to find it.

Otherwise I will consider it a request, and if it is something I can work up and put online for you, I will.

    I would like the recipe for smashed cauliflower.I saw a cauliflower recipe earlier on here but now I can not locate it.I love cauliflower but I have no recipes for it except with cheese sauce.I would really like some new recipes to try with it.


    • Here is the recipe for cauliflower I have posted:
      (link deleted)
      If you look to the right of the recipe pages and scroll way down there is a detailed index for ingredients and such.
      I will get a recipe for mashed cauliflower up for you within a few days.
      If you’d like, I can also get recipes up for any of these: cauliflower “potato salad”; roasted cauliflower; marinated cauliflower salad; cauliflower soup. If you want any of those, let me know. I will just need time to space out the cauliflower, except the mock potato salad, which I have posted online. I just don’t have a photo for that one as I worked on that before I started taking photos.

    I cannot find my favorite port green chili recipe. I know it has stewed tomatoes, canned green chilies, and cilantro. It was a very simple recipe with only a few ingredients. I found it online but cannot seem to locate it again. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    HI – your site is not user friendly. I have clicked for 12 min to find the recipe for turkey dumpling soup. I go from one page to another back to the first…no recipe. in your recipe file there is nothing. I click on the picture, the name, anything. I am frustrated. would like to follow you but not if it won’t give up the recipes quickly and easily…


    • Hi! Look in the upper right corner and you will see a search box. Type “turkey dumpling” or whichever keyword you are looking for.
      Hit enter.
      The page should load a list of all the recipes with the keyword.
      In this case, the turkey dumpling soup will be at the top.
      Click either the title, or underneath the photo where it says “read more”.
      Because what you look at first is just a brief description with the photo designed for people to browse while scrolling the main page.

      You can also click on the recipes index, where I have the recipes listed alphabetically (click on the title), also by gallery, where you can browse groups of recipes from the blog via pinterest, and also in featured recipes as recipe collections either all together on the blog as a linkup or in specialized groupings on pinterest.

      As well, you can scroll down the page and see a list of the ten most currently popular recipes on the blog, and below that, my ten most recnetly posted recipes.

      So there are many ways to view the recipes. But on my blog, as on most blogs, clicking the picture on the page leads to a full-size photo, not a recipe link. This keeps the load time down so you can actually see the pages instead of waiting and waiting. But in all cases, clicking the title or the read more takes you to the full page.

      Enjoy, and if you have more questions feel free to ask me any time. And have a very Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate.๐Ÿ™‚

    I make your melba toast with cocktail bread and it is just great – so do you have a recipe for cinnamon melba toast? I had it once when we were in the upper peninsula of Michigan and it was FANTASTIC!!! I have been looking ever since but the only way I can think of is to brush some olive oil on the bread and then add cinnamon or cinnamon sugar. If you can – HELP!!!

    My granddaughter was so excited to see Filookie on a menu. It’s a chocolate chip cake with oozing chocolate center. I would love to get this recipe

    I am looking for a recipe that I have not used for many years… and can’t find the recipe now.
    It has whipped cream, crushed pineapple, mandarin oranges and I think vanilla pudding… not sure about the pudding. I need it for a church supper as a dessert… just for something different.

    Sue, I moved from Cincinnati to Southern Alabama a few years back and there is a cake that an elderly lady makes but will not divulge the recipe for. All I know is it has pecans, possibly coconut, and some kind of syrup or sauce that soaks through to make it so super moist all the way through and I do mean all the way through. I found one on taste of home for Coconut Pecan cake where it had a syrup poured over after cooking but it did not soak through the cake. I have coined this cake the crack of cake-land, because it is so super moist you cant just eat a little. And there is no way to explain how moist it is except it is very wet. Like it was soaked in a pan of something rather than something was poured on top. Can you figure it out?
