Welcome

Fran Fran was a 91 year old widow who had been cooking, baking and entertaining for over 70 years. She died quietly in her home on April 24, 2015.

The recipes in Fran's Kitchen™ are essentially homestyle American dishes, with a few Italian dishes thrown in for good measure.

Choose from any of Fran's 134 recipes, ranging from appetizer's and soups, to main dishes made with chicken, beef, veal, pork, and seafood. Don't forget to top off your meal with one of Fran's delicious desserts!

But there's more to cooking than mere recipes, and that's why her reference section is so important. For beginners, Fran shows you how to read a recipe, teaches you what cooking & baking definitions are, and has an extensive list of kitchen utensils needed in your kitchen.

For the everyday cook, and even for some of you seasoned pros out there, Fran's Kitchen™ has measurement conversion charts, a FAQ's section, food storage guides, kitchen tips, and a herbs & spices section.
