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!

Taco Soup

(This is a really easy and yummy soup. Kevin loves it and requests it often. Many thanks go out to Becky for sharing this recipe with my family. I’ve changed it only a tiny bit to meet our personal likes, as you should do too! P.S. Becky’s sister Kelly also gave me her Taco Soup recipe that is equally YUMMY. We switch back and forth between them. I’ll post it soon too, so keep watching!)
20 ounces ground turkey (seasoned with a little salt and pepper, garlic and dry minced onions)
2 packets taco seasoning
1 packet powdered Ranch seasoning
1 large can diced tomatoes (followed by 1 full can of water)
1 regular sized can corn (do not drain)
1 regular size can black beans (do not drain)
1 large can chili beans (do not drain)

Brown meat and stir in seasoning packets. (We used turkey for a meal that was better for us and no one even noticed!) Pour in the vegetables and can of water. Cook in the Crockpot on high for 5 hours. Sprinkle cheese on top and add sour cream. I serve this with whole wheat cheesy quesadillas that I throw on my George Forman.
