Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
This is a great recipe that I found in my Grandma's recipe book. Judging from the weathered look of this recipe card, this was a family favorite.
Fast and Friendly Meatballs
These oven-baked meatballs are fast and easy to prepare and very kid-friendly. You can serve them with pasta and spaghetti sauce or just eat them with ketchup, as my children do. Feel free to substitute lean ground beef for the ground turkey. The turkey should have at least 7% fat.
An old-fashioned, tender shortcake with two layers of strawberries topped with whipped cream.
Chicken and Chourico Pizza
My mom always made pizza with chourico growing up and I loved it. I have redone it and added more protein - chicken! I love homemade pizza.
This recipe calls for trout, but catfish or red snapper would be equally good. Be sure to have a well-ventilated kitchen!
Slow Cooker Chicken and Salsa
Easy recipe! Chicken comes out moist and sweet. Slice breast to serve as main course or shred and use in tacos. Very versatile. Enjoy!
Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad
This is a very flavorful pasta salad. The crisp cooked bacon really adds a nice flavor. I get requests for this pasta salad for every get together and cook out.
Strawberry Spinach Salad
What a wonderful surprise the dressing is in this refreshing salad. Raspberry jam is swirled into raspberry vinegar, and then mixed with oil. This luscious dressing is tossed with the kiwi, strawberries, walnuts and spinach. Makes eight servings.
Spring Vegetable Frittata
Leftover ham from the big dinner? Bought more eggs than your kids could boil and color? Open the fridge and throw together this pasta frittata: an easy one-pan dinner that's sure to please. Serve with heated spaghetti sauce on top, if desired.
Healthy Green Juice
Great healthy drink for detoxing after the holidays or whenever you have overdone it. Worth it to buy the organic celery, even if you buy conventional for everything else. Adjust fruit and veggie amounts to suit your personal taste. More apple equals a sweeter drink. Store any extra in a glass jar in the fridge for up to a day. Shake before drinking.
Making Espresso Drinks
While there’s definitely an art to preparing the perfect espresso drink, the process doesn’t have to be a foreign concept.
