Recipe Index

I want to be forthright and say that I’m not a recipe developer nor a food photographer. I have no desire to be the former but have huge ambitions to do a better job at the latter. At this stage of the game, not only does my equipment stink, my photography skills do too! Please bear with me while I try to improve both my camera and my skill level.

My recipes are ones I use daily as a from-scratch home cook. They are kitchen-tested over and over again. If I find another recipe for a certain dish I like better, the old one goes to the garbage bin.

I cook for a family of men and so these recipes are simple, usually hearty, and delicious. My hope would be that my readers are able to use a few of them in their recipe rotation.

God bless and remember some of our best family memories are from our time around the dinner table.
