Recipes I've Shared:

Crockpot Lamb Stew

Finally wrote down this lamb stew version of my husbands. The lamb was previously cooked for Passover and stuffed/rubbed with rosemary, garlic, shallots, salt, and pepper which is giving the stew it's seasoning.

Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff w/ noodles

Originally from but now modified

Crockpot Lentil Linguica Soup

Something my husband threw together.

Garlic Chicken

I got this from a recipe book years ago and don't even remember which one but it's a hit with my family and super simple to make

Crockpot Turkey Chili

I've been working on this recipe for a while, tweaking it to my family's taste. Hope you enjoy.

Crockpot Minestrone

So I have never made or even eaten minestrone soup before but I had a bunch of vegetables in my fridge that needed to get eaten up so I did some research and combined a few recipes and am now crossing my fingers that my kids will eat this for dinner.

Fortified Banana Bread

Took the Quick Banana Bread recipe from a copy of Joy of Cooking and modified to make it a little healthier

Slowcooker Bean & Rice soup

Modified from a Food Network recipe to reduce sodium and fat.

Curry Chicken Salad

Not one of the sweet chicken curries, this one has zip

Pork Asparagus Stir-Fry

My husband threw this together one night and it's become a family favorite. I put in that it makes 8 servings since it serves my crew of 6 (including 2 teenage boys) with leftovers.

Very Good (1 rating)
Fortified Amish Friendship Bread

Using the basic Amish Friendship Bread Starter, I use whole wheat flour and then add flax and protein powder to bulk it up and bake into 18 muffins. My kids LOVE this! We will sometimes add raisins or chocolate chips as a treat.


Cross of Hawaiin and Japanese cuisine. I make mine with fresh Albacore that I get off the boats in the harbor by my house rather than the imported Ahi.

Chicken Dijon

Basic chicken recipe, simple to make, goes well with plain veggies or salad and a simple starch. All measures except the chicken are approximate so do what works for you. The basic instruction given to me was:
Lots of Dijon
More water than olive oil
Garlic as you like it
More Thyme than Rosemary

*I've always used dried herbs but I'm betting it would be splendid with fresh if you have them on hand.

Vegetable and Meat Lasagna

Originally a vegetarian lasagna recipe, we added meat and some extra cheese to suit our taste. Recipe includes those additions with notes on how to revert back to vegetarian.
