Welcome to my "Recipe Box"

As I try to get all of my many recipes gathered, purged and organized, I have been making lots of new things. Some of the recipe's you will see here have come from specific places. The origins of others remain a mystery. When I can identify a source, I'll indicate it so you can find more sources of great food.

Homemade Salsa

Friday, 7 June 2013

I've been away from my computer lately.  It needed a new hard drive and I needed some medical tests done.  Long story.  Anyway, I thought I'd add our favorite salsa recipe here.  We prefer to make it with fresh Roma tomatoes so it usually is made during the summer, but you can use canned tomatoes and get just as good a result   Read full recipe

Beef Stroganoff

Tuesday, 30 April 2013

I looked on line yesterday for a beef stroganoff recipe that wasn't a crockpot recipe, (I was using round steak and a day in the crockpot would turn it to mush) and didn't use a blasted can of cream of something soup.  After I weeded those out I noticed that just about everyone had posted the same recipe that called for 3 Tablespoons of chili sauce.  I my opinion, chili sauce is just expensive ketchup.   Read full recipe

Pasta Con Broccoli

Wednesday, 24 April 2013

I am a creature of habit, so that my preference at any new Italian Restaurant is Pasta Con Broccoli. If they can't make a good version of my favorite dish, then why bother coming back, right? I have tried many versions, some very complicated, some using canned Cream of Mushroom soup (not a very good choice) None of them matched or even came close to the version I used to get at Del Pietro's here in town.

Light Weight Lasagna

Saturday, 13 April 2013

I found this recipe many many years ago in the St. Louis Daily paper.  I am not sure just how light weight it actually is but since it uses cottage cheese instead of ricotta, and no eggs, it is probably better than most. The sauce is really easy and meaty.  I double the same sauce with half the meat for my spaghetti with meat sauce   Read full recipe
