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!

Skirt Steak with Mushroom Gravy

(I got this recipe from an online email I receive daily from MommySavers.com. It was really good and fairly easy. What I really like is that I can use a tool on the Weight Watchers site to build my recipes and get a points number. AWESOME! Also I had a hard time finding “skirt steak”, so I just bought really thin steaks. I’m not sure what the weight was, but there were 8 thin steaks in total. We like to have leftovers for lunch.)
Skirt Steak
1 cup flour
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil
2 onions, diced
2 Tsp. refrigerated minced garlic (I love this stuff and use it anytime a recipe calls for garlic cloves.)
2 packages of fresh mushrooms from the produce section (2 – 8oz containers)
4 Tbsp. all purpose flour
1 32oz beef broth

Pour about 1 cup of flour on a plate. Salt and pepper steaks and dredge in flour, on both sides. Heat oil on medium; sauté steak for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and set aside. Add onions, garlic and mushrooms and sauté until translucent. Add 4 Tbsp of all purpose flour to the mixture, stir well. Add beef broth and bring to a boil. Place the steaks back into the pan and cover. Simmer for 30 minutes.  

This made 8 servings. Keep in mind that the steaks are thin, so I doubled the recipe in case anyone wanted seconds and so that we had leftovers. I served this with No Yolk egg noodles and Red Cabbage.

1 serving of the Skirt Steak with Gravy is 8 WW points.
