The recipes on this site were originally posted on the 50 Plus Friends Cookbook at We have made several improvements recently including support for mobiles and tablets, search function so hope you find something of interest.

As this site is no longer available we are attempting to reconstruct as much of the original recipes that were posted there, this is however ‘work in progress’ so please bear with me, the site went offline in 2012.

The links in blue have content, those in black have yet to be started, the same is true on the subpages, this is being constantly updated so if the recipe you want is not yet online come back later or email me via the contact form and I’ll expedite the recovery of the relevant section.
