Food should be enjoyed

Over time I have created some recipes that are my go-to recipes for some of our favorite dishes.  I have decided to jot them down here in addition to the little notebook I keep on my kitchen shelf. I hope they might serve others well.



Growing up I learned so many wonderful recipes from my mom and my stepmom.


When I met Dave his family also had so many wonderful recipes.  I keep a very messy book full of these recipes and my goal is to get some of those favorites on here along with a few creations of my own. 


One of my favorites is our pizza we make here in the Green Jeans house, topped off with fresh herbs from the garden.  So stayed tuned I will be sharing that one soon.
