  1. I have been trying several of your recipes this week, The very simple cabbage/onion one was such a bit hit with my husband that he didn’t notice potatoes were missing!! All have been such a great new meal pleaser. I am so glad that I found you. Bonus is that I lost 5 lbs this week, and that was not my plan! No fancy ingredients, down to earth foods, ingredients, easy to cook. Thank you again.

  2. 5 stars
    This was absolutely delicious. I didn’t even noticed that it’s supposed to feed four people, as I ate the squash as a meal 😀
    I will be looking at more of your recipes!
