I am not a recipe person. I’m a wing-it kind of cook. However, over the years, it seems I have figured some stuff out. My kids have asked me to write down some of their favorites so, in the event that any of them ever live somewhere other than my house, they can replicate them. This is as much for them as it is for you, so I hope they bring to you the same full bellies, turned-up noses, and happy dogs who get to eat everything that falls on the floor.
