  • Cooking Skill level: Easy  
  • Cooking time:  35 minutes
  • Taste Impression:   Butter, cheesy. You will never go back to eating plain pasta again!

 The Parmesan Cheese Pasta is a recipe near and dear to my heart. This is one of my late Aunts recipe, she was one amazing home cook. I always had such a wonderful time getting to be with her in the kitchen.  She would tell me stories and give me advice while preparing some of the most delicious meals I’ve ever had.  One of her best cooking tips to me was ‘always use enough butter’ 🙂 I miss her dearly and think of her often when I am making this pasta recipe. 

If you don’t like butter or cheese then this is not the dish for you.  The butter not only adds loads of flavor but keeps the paste from sticking together.  There are only 4 ingredients, and the great thing is It’s only a few more than your normal pasta.  Come with me as I show you one of my memory lanes.

Turkey Meatball Recipe

Features of the Turkey Meatball Recipe

  • Cooking Skill level: Easy  
  • Cooking time:   12 to 15 minutes
  • Taste Impression: Tangy, sweet. Moist inside and crunchy on the outside.

I created this recipe out of total necessity. One night for dinner I really wanted some teriyaki chicken, but when I looked in the refrigerator  I did not find chicken but rather ground turkey. Hmmm, what should I do? But then it happened, I had a brilliant idea! Why not make Teriyaki turkey.  It could work…  So, I put all the ingredients together and tested it on my husband, David.  He took a bite and gave me an approving smile.  I knew he liked it.  I have not had anyone say otherwise so far so I decided to put the Turkey Meatball Recipe on this site.  ;-).  Not only are they easy to make but you also will have dinner done in about 35 Minute. Now that makes me happy! I love to cook but some night I want something quick to make.

The Stuffed Mushroom Flavor Explosion Recipe is the perfect side dish to keep your guests or family saying “Yum!” “Oh, that’s good” and “Are there any more of those little things that taste so buttery”

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween!  For the last 4 years David and I have been hired to hand out candy, on Halloween night, at a local restaurant.  Getting to see all the costume and meeting so many people in our community helps me to bring in the holiday season.  I wish I could have had my camera with me but unfortunately, Rapunzel’s character does not have an iPhone.
