Tim and Victor's Totally Joyous Recipes

Welcome to the site!

We have recipes from family reunions, heart-healthy from the ’90s, artery-clogging from the ’60’s, rustic breads, gooey desserts, hundreds of recipes from friends and family, quick and easy ideas, and whatever we decided to pull together for dinner.
Eclectic, to say the least.

And eclectic really does sum up what it’s all about – fun food for fun people with something for any occasion.

Peruse the site and have some fun! There are several thousand recipes just waiting for you!

It’s one of those perfect days for Mother Nature’s Outdoor Proofing Box. Definitely time to bake some bread. I don’t make a lot of basic sandwich loaf breads – I really do have a penchant for more rustic Italian breads – but every now and again I ne...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I just love that Victor is retired. Little things like walking into the house after work and having the house smell like fresh-baked cookies just can’t be beat. Seriously can’t be beat. And it works on so many levels… the way the house smells, the fact that ther...

Prime Rib and the Ghosts of Christmas’ Past

The quiet day turned into a quiet night. And a really great dinner. And a great dessert. Prime Rib. Not something I buy often. Nor anything I cook often. Lord knows I cooked enough of them in my early Hyatt days, but not so much, anymore. Granted, it’s one of the easiest pi...
