Lily and Ellie said...

Hi Anonymous!

We have not posted all of the Duggars' recipes to our blog but will post the one for banana cake in the near future. Until then, you can see the recipe on the Duggars' website: http://www.duggarfamily.com/recipes.html.
It should be right at the top.

Thanks for reading the blog!
Enjoy the recipes,

Do you have a recipe for homemade dish soap not the dishwasher, for hand washing dishes

Lily and Ellie said...

At this time, the Duggars don't have a recipe for dish-washing soap, but thanks for asking!

I just watched your the show where you have a lot of crickets. When I first moved into my house my father had me put cornmeal on a paper plate somewhere my daughter couldn't get to it. She was 3 then. It worked I haven't had a problem and if I start hearing them again I put a little more down. My daughter is now 22. Best wishes

Have you thought about doing a book of your recipes? I know several people who are always looking for budget friendly recipes and I feel you are a great source to get those from. After all you can't see how you can feed 19 kids without knowing several budget friendly recipes.

I am looking for your applesauce recipe you made on the wisdom teeth episode. would you share?

Highdesertstamper said...

Of all the shows I've watched.. I never see that you have a garden.. with so many children and so much land around your house..WHY Don't you have a garden..? I would think it would teach more lessons, provide a good supply of vegetables for your family, and teach the children to preserve and can. I was raised in the country and was taught all this, and it has gotten me and my family through tough times. And with the amount of land.. why not some dwarf fruit trees?

Chelsea said...

On a recent show I noticed Michelle looking at cute recipe cards. They look to be laminated with pictures for the kids to read. I would love to have some of those so my kids can help me cook. Where did she find those?

Anonymous said...

I also love watching the duggars, but have also wondered the same thing about having a garden. With all the life lessons learned and taught, why is gardening not one of them?

Lily and Ellie said...

Hi Highdesertstamper and Anonymous!

We know that the Duggars have had a garden in past years. Not completely sure if they have one currently, but that would be a great question to ask during a future interview!

Blessings,
Lily and Ellie

I am also looking for the applesauce recipe that was made on the show! Thanks!

Lily and Ellie said...

Hi by faith alone!

It doesn't look like the Duggars have released their homemade applesauce recipe to the public, but Michelle did briefly explain how to make it on the show:

Add a bit of water to a pot of peeled apples, and then cook them up on the stove. Next, add some honey, and place the applesauce in the fridge to cool.

Hope this helps!

I was really hoping to find their applesauce recipe. It looked so good.

Hi Patty!

We haven't found an exact recipe for the Duggars' homemade applesauce, but Michelle explained how to make it in "19 Kids and Counting" Duggar Dental Drama. Here is what she said:

Add a bit of water to a pot of peeled apples, and then cook them up on the stove. Next, add some honey, and place the applesauce in the fridge to cool.

Hi dthneece!

Thanks for the kind words about our blog! We are honored to have you as a reader.

Here's how Amy explains how to make the raspberry bars:
"Like a stick of butter, Graham cracker crumbles, you can buy any kind of filling, then save some crust for topping, 350 12 min!"

Let us know how they turn out!

I am not a great baker but now I take the DUGGAR ice cream cake to all kind of church functions and family celebrations . Everyone loves it. For smaller functions I halve the recipe. Better than store bought. This is my favorite blog.

I made the liquid laundry detergent from the Duggar Family recipe. My whites look very dingy and almost grey. Is there a secret to the whites coming out white with the homemade laundry soap? I used all the ingredients and their proper portions.

Kelley said...

Do you know the recipe Anna Duggar used to make dinner the first time she had over the entire Duggar family at their home ?

I know she made stuffed pasta shells and sauce and cheese, salad, bread.

This is one recipe that looked great, but was never posted.

I know they featured it on an episode where a couple of the sisters helped Anna cook dinner.

Thank you.

Lily and Ellie said...

Hi Kelley!

It doesn't look like Anna has revealed her Stuffed Shells recipe, but here is a link to a tried and true recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Stuffed-Shells-I/Detail.aspx.

We do have the recipe for Anna's Chicken Etti, the dish that she made for Josh's sisters in "Driving Miss Duggars." You can find that here: http://duggarsblog.blogspot.com/2010/03/anna-duggars-chicken-etti-recipe.html.

Hope this helps!

KarenS said...

I was wondering about the Duggars' food choices...I know they follow the teachings of Bill Gothard's ministry and Vision Forum, both of which give clear guidelines for eating only unprocessed, organic food. It seems that their recipies posted on this blog as well as on their own webpage contain mostly processed food. I would love to know why there is that discrepancy-not to be argumentative or divisive, but simply to understand why it appears that they have not chosen to abide by the guidelines for eating put forth by the ministries which seem to guide their other important life-style decisions. Thanks, and God bless you!

Lily and Ellie said...

Hi KarenS!

Great question! The Duggars have said that buying organic would cost too much, but they do focus on making healthy choices. They eat whole grains and plenty of fruits and veggies, and they substitute ground turkey for ground beef. Jim Bob and Michelle also do not allow their children to eat junk food regularly. That being said, they do like to indulge on occasion. Pickles and pretzels are a favorite, and like many people, they enjoy ice cream and other treats.

Hope this answers your question!

Hello! maybe its' time for a recipe book??? People seem a little um needy I guess. Also, Michelle, you do great!! People ask why you don't do this or that? I think it is crazy for them to even ask?? You and your husband and your families "Budget" is your business. The fact that you even share a glimpse into your life is a privilage for me. I would think also a privilage for anyone. People have alot of "advice" but they are not in your shoes. I am truly amazed!! Non of us are perfect. But i know I could learn alot from you! Much Love, Kelley

I wanted to help out two families in our church last Friday. One mom with two little girls had an ATV accident. Her youngest daughter was thrown clear but the mom suffered a head injury. Praise God she woke up with just some short-term memory loss. The other young mom has an adorable little boy born last August. I delivered to both homes Tater Tot Casserole with fruit, salad, and brownies for dessert. Thank you for sharing your quick and easy and delicious meals. Love you all.

It to too unfair and misleading to NOT post calories, sodium levels, saturated fat, etc. of the Duggar recipes. It seems to me that God would consider this a sin that you do not post the truth of the recipes.

rachel and andrew said...

wow im such a big fan and find it hard with one youre tips have been wonderful

AnaraSkye said...

It's fairly obvious after looking at the Duggar recipes posted here and at the other location that the recipes are high in sodium and fat. But take a good look at the kids, there is not a single over weight kid in the bunch! That's b/c these kids aren't inside all the time watching t.v. or playing video games every moment of they day, they are outside playing!!

The Duggars probably aren't eating organic foods...but if they were then they probably would set up garden and etc...

Hi Lilly & Ellie,
I was wondering if you could post the Duggar Apple Dumpling recipe. I got the recipe from the Duggar's homepage. However, I thought many of your readers might find the recipe easier if it was here in your blog. I made this over the weekend with my kids. It was easy & fun for the kids to make & it was delicious. My husband & I loved it but more importantly my children all loved. We are planning on bringing it to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving.
Thanks

Rebecca T said...

okay just wondering.......do you buy your own deodorant?????? If so I think that I might have a way for ya guys to save more money
6 TBSP COCONUT OIL
1/4 C CORNSTRACH
1/4 C BAKING SODA/ARROWROOT POWDER
3 TBSP BEESWAX
U will have to melt the coconut oil and the beeswax and then add the other ingredient. Then after that you will also need to add some TEA TREE OIL a few drops. U can also add other scents to your liking as well. To store it you can put it into an old deodorant container and use. It should last you longer than regular deodorant. My family have been using this for about three months now and we have not looked back every since. LOVE THE SHOW

Any idea if the Oatmeal cookie recipe works well multiplied?
I need to make at least 340 cookies at a time and often smaller portion recipes become to greasy with the same amounts of butter.

So, I think to make it perfect for my family is add a little more meat. I cut the recipe in half and it was enough for my family of 5 and to even have left overs. Thank you for the recipe. It is quick, easy, and inexpensive. Thank you sooo much for finally being able to try something new.
