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!

Spaghetti Squash

(Tonight we tried Spaghetti Squash for the first time. My parents are visiting and everyone LOVED this. Kaeleb and I aren’t sold, but we’ll try it again. I took the advice of someone who told me to buy 2 large spaghetti squash and I ended up with 8 pounds, which was WAY too much. I’ll try this again, for sure. The best thing is that it’s really good for you!)
4 tbsp butter
3 cloves of garlic
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 onion
1 tsp basil leaves
1 tsp oregano
Tomatoes (canned one 28 oz and one 14 oz)
1 4lb Spaghetti Squash

Add water to baking pan, slice squash, place flesh side down and bake for 45 – 1 hour on 350. Allow to cool. Heat butter on medium heat. Add garlic, peppers and onions. Sauté 10 minutes. Add tomatoes, bring to boil. Add basil and oregano; simmer on low for 45 minutes. Use a fork to shred squash into “noodles”. Brown beef. Add beef and sauce to squash and mix. Transfer to baking dish, top with cheese. Bake until warm.
