I started posting food pictures in Instagram as a way for me to remember what I made. I often came up with new recipes and by the time I want to make it again, I forgot what I put in it.  I started making recipe cards to put in my recipe holder. I made two books for my two boys, so when they leave for college they've got something to bring with them. I also started giving out recipe cards to my neighbor. It was fun making recipe cards from a creative website, but somehow I got busy and I stopped making them. So Instagram became a quick way to post pics and remember the ingredients. After posting several hundred posts, people started asking for recipes. So here are some and will continue to add more as I go. Thank you and I hope you enjoy my recipes. Eat, live, laugh. Enjoy food with family and friends!
