I wrote this book for my three children, they are almost ready to leave the nest as young adults. This is a collection of sixty-nine of my favorite recipes taken directly out of our recipe box. These were collected over many years from friends, family and my favorite cook books. There is a little bit of everything here, main dishes, sides, treats and just all around great tasting food. I know how much my kids like ordering up a quick pizza, instead, these recipes are kind of an essential survival guide so they don’t have to always eat out of a box.
