Chef Mom

I've collected these recipes from family members, out-of-print cookbooks, magazines, and the backs of food cartons. I've modified quite a few of them and, I think, made them even better. I only put my family's favorites on this site, because I'd like for my friends to have as many good food memories as we do. Enjoy...

This is really delish! I made it the other night, even using whole wheat spaghetti and reduced fat was scruptious! Two paws up from the MomCat!

I made this tonight and it was so yummy! Even The Baby at the feta, shrimp, and spaghetti - which is the biggest variety ever eaten at one meal!

Thanks for sharing this one. It was a big hit here!
