We love drink recipes, though we don’t make new ones often! We hope that you’ll love this collection as much as we loved making and drinking them!
Every day should start with a delicious, nutritious breakfast. If only we lived in that world! haha. Check out this collection and enjoy!
Everyone loves appetizers and finger foods! They are great to try not to fill up on right before a wonderful meal!
The biggest struggle for me is coming up with new side dishes to cook. I never know what to cook and often end up cooking very similar things (You’ll notice there are TWO potato salad recipes below).

Vegetarian Main Dishes
Vegetarian Main Dishes
So, yeah… I’m a meat eater. Eating vegetarian dishes is a rare thing for me. Not that you would have ever guessed.
Sandwiches and Wraps
Sandwiches & Wrap Recipes
These are all absolutely fabulous for busy days! Just add your favorite chips and you are golden!
Chicken is so diverse! Since it’s a little healthier than some of the alternatives, we eat a lot of chicken. Hope you enjoy!
Beef and Turkey
This has got to be from my Oklahoma roots: a serious love for beef! Growing up it was a staple. However, all of our ground beef recipes can use ground turkey instead and be just as tasty, some actually do already.
If you would like your ground turkey to taste more like ground beef, we recommend adding Beef Better Than Bouillon. After cooking the ground turkey, add the bouillon and a small amount of water, cooking and stirring until the meat is covered.
To be honest, when editing this page it kind of shocked me that there aren’t more pork recipes. Although I cook pork a lot, I suppose many of my recipes are so simple I don’t find them worthy of posting. Perhaps I need to change that soon!
As you can probably guess, seafood is not my favorite type of food. It is growing on me though, I have developed a love for shrimp but hubby is allergic so that’s out. I don’t know when I’ll come up with more seafood dishes to share, but right now this is what I’ve got! Admittedly, my main seafood is tuna. I love sushi, but haven’t yet attempted to make it. Mainly because of the availability of good, fresh sea food in my landlocked state.
Soups and Stews
Soups & Stews
Best thing about almost all of these stews: making extra and sticking it in the freezer! Then again, I also love that I typically don’t have to stand over the stove in order to have a homemade dinner on the table for our little family.
Does anyone really have to say anything about desserts? Aside from: yes, please! We don’t make a ton of dessert recipes, so every one we do make has to be amazing!
Ahh, cookies, the diet killer in this house! We love them! It is literally impossible for us to not eat any cookies that exist in this house. Perhaps not all at once, but definitely one at a time throughout the days! So many great cookie recipes, it’s just too much!
Love baking but don’t often get to do so, as there are only two of us left in the zoo these days so whenever I get the chance to take a dish somewhere, these are often the first thing I think of!
Really love that word. It means, just a little extra. These recipes don’t really go anywhere on their own but they are all fantastic! Hope you enjoy!

(Recipes) You really have some great appetizer recipes listed here for me to make sometime. I love to entertain on a regular basis so these will be all great to have for when we have company coming over. I like them all!
Thanks for the great selection of recipes from beef and turkey. I prefer beef over pork and turkey over chiken. Yummy!
My pleasure! All of our ground meat recipes can be made with either beef or turkey! Hope you find lots that you love!
I like it.
I need to collect some “go to” dishes. I’m always at a loss, trying to figure out what to make. Thanks for posting!
I have a recipe box that is only tried and true recipes. I’ve also started adding notes on the backs with sides and modifications to help when I just can’t think of anything.
