ElaineHN's Recipes

These are basic recipes for meals I cook for my family. Most everything I cook is fairly quick & easy. They may not be the lightest or lowest in fat/calories/carbs, etc. ... but they are generally 'improved' and somewhat 'healthier' versions of family favorites I prepared in the past. ENJOY!
