Welcome to my personal recipe share page. All the recipes found here are all tried and true. Some have been shared by friends and some are old family recipes. Others I've found on cooking sites, web pages and in cook books. All have been tweaked to my families liking. Please note that I don't create my own recipes and I'm not taking credit for others recipes. I'm simply sharing what has worked for us and sharing our favorites. Since I know how much I enjoy new and exciting recipes, I thought I would share them with the world! I get tired of making the same dish time and time again. It's true that while something is worthy of being enjoyed frequently, the same rotation gets old fast. The recipes you will find here, for the most part, are simple to create with easy to come by ingredients. While there may be the recipe that requires a little more effort, I can assure you that it will be worth it. There will also be plenty of crock pot creations for you to choose from. I hope that you find something here that appeals to you and that you will share your favorites with me. Enjoy and Bon Appetite!

Colorful Zucchini Spears

(Thanks to my friend Rachel, I found this recipe in her Taste of Home Cookbook. You can also find TOH online. Now, I will tell you that I altered this recipe to make more and really over did it. The recipe originally is for 2 servings. I decided to go bigger for my family and went too big. So I’m going to post a recipe for a family a four and the one I’ll use from now own.)

3 bacon strips, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 medium zucchini
½ tsp salt
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp pepper
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cook bacon over medium heat until cooked, but not crisp. Allow to drain on a paper towel. Cut zucchini in half widthwise; cut halves lengthwise into quarters. Place in a sprayed baking dish. Combine the salt, oregano, garlic and pepper in a small bowl. Mix well. Sprinkle half over the zucchini. Top with tomato, onion, bacon and remaining seasonings. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 5 – 10 minutes longer or until zucchini is tender.
