Vene's Cookbook

I like a wide variety of foods. Maybe later on when I get alot I'll make more than one cookbook. Sometime soon I'll see about adding some of my own recipies. I have to go through and slim some of them up.

Moms Meatloaf Un-chained
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

Boston Market ( casual dining) makes a really good meatloaf but this one is alot healthier and making it in the crockpot makes getting dinner on the table a snap. Make it up the night before and just pop it in the crockpot and set to low and dinner is ready when you get home. Match up with some healthy sides of steamed vegs. Dinner in a snap.

Yummy eggrolls stuffed full of veggies. For lumpia (what I've been told is the Phillipine version of egg rolls) use spring roll papers. We use these as a meal but make a great side or appetizer too!

I had a salad similar to this in Jerome, AZ, in a restaurant called the Asylum. It was an old State hospital converted to a hotel and restaurant.

A delicious, lightened up version of the ever-popular Chinese take-out dish. Serve with steamed rice (not calculated into recipe).

Recipe from Good Housekeeping Favorite Recipes "Easy Skillet Meals" Delicious One-Dish Cooking cookbook.

Excellent flavor! The kids and hubbs all liked it. It was much more flavorful (but not overpowering) and fresh tasting than take-out. Everyone gave this a big thumbs up.

This recipe can be custom made to anyone's personal tastes by both adding or omitting the ingredients I put in my dish. The options are as limitless as the cook's imagination. Add/omit any fresh/frozen vegetable desired - ex. snow peas/peas, green beans, spinach, etc. Crab meat or scallops can be substituted or added to the shrimp for variety.
