Instead of just having a category of “recipes”, I am trying out having them on a “page” so they are easy to peruse.  And they are “recipes” because sometimes measurements are vague and you kind of have to figure some things out on your own.  So they are guides to dishes.  🙂  Please let me know what you think about the recipes.  Some of the recipes are my own creations and some are variations and modifications of other people’s.  I give credit where credit is due, I hope you will too.  Take a recipe, change it up then come back here and let us know what you did to make it even more fantastic.  Let’s share ideas!

As I post recipes I will add them to this page.  At the bottom of the page I will have a last updated date so when you come back you can know if it has changed and something has been added since you last looked!
