Chow Sauce for Stir Fry

We love stir fry in our home.  We consider it a good healthy meal with lots of veggies, and I love that it’s a whole meal in one dish/pan.  This is a version that I like to make because it’s less spicy for my kids.  If you like more heat you can always drizzle Sriracha…

Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef

I was home, it was the dinner hour, and I still had no idea what to make.  I asked the kids what they wanted and Liv said, “spaghetti”.  I had no way to cheat with pre-made pasta sauce, so I turned to allrecipes.  This one turned out pretty good, was fairly simple, and I usually…

Basil Pesto

My sweet neighbor showed up on my door step with a bunch of washed basil from her garden (unbeknownst to her I have a ton growing in my own garden).  I love basil and was not put out at all.  It just determined that pesto was just the thing for dinner.  I love pesto…smear it…

Lemon Tartar Sauce

When Derek and I were newly married and our budget was tight I remember frequently stopping by Derek’s parents place around the dinner hour in hopes that they might feed us as well as themselves.  I think Diane began to anticipate such drop bys and usually always seemed to have enough to share with us…

Spaghetti & Company

 This is just a basic doctored up spaghetti sauce recipe from the 30 Meals in A Day cookbook Dinner is Ready.  Nothing fancy, but I like it just the same.  I usually make a huge batch, then make a couple lasagna pans.  Then, with whatever sauce I have left over, I divide it into freezer…

Tomato-Basil Pizza Sauce

 My pizza baking endeavors have been constantly tweaked over my cooking years until I have finally arrived at a combination that I like pretty well.  Honestly, the one thing that I think makes or breaks pizza is the sauce.  Once I started making sauce from scratch my pizza improved tremendously.  When I was in college,…
