Im a Texas gal, for fun I spend time with my 3 children and hubby. My favorite past times at the moment are searching for new and exciting recipes.

I love to cook anything and everything. Ive thrown things together and gotten horrible messes and the occasional yummy dish. I love seafood, mexican, asian, and italian foods. Im very glad I found this page because Ive seen some recipes I simply can not wait to try and will eventually share some of my own when I feel I have one that is BigOven worthy. :)

I loved this shrimp! It's the closest I can get to my favorite dish at our local Chinese restaurant. I'm going to make this again and add green onion and white onion. I love garlic! — sgrishka 5/7/2011

South Texas Spanish Rice

South Texas Spanish Rice

Interesting variation to how I (from south Texas) make my rice. Never met anyone who puts peas in spanish rice. I use green pepper and no jalapeño. I also add fresh tomatoes and cilantro. Also there is no mention of the cheese yet the picture shows it. (also have never added cheese to my south tx rice. 5/3/2011

I've already made these a number of times and my family loves them, my husband even asked me to make a few batches for his employee, they finished every last one. Thanks for this recipe it's definitely a keeper! 5/3/2011
Cola Chicken

Cola Chicken

Made this tonight and my hubby and kids loved it. Dr pepper is my fav soda so that's what I used with a 50/50 ketchup- BBQ sauce mixture. However it wasn't really my cup of tea. 4/28/2011
Crockpot Kalua Pig

Crockpot Kalua Pig

I wanted to try this after going to Hawaii last month and having authentic kaluha pork at a luau. It fell flat. There wasn't very much flavor at all and I actually used only 4 lbs of pork instead of 6. I won't be making it again : — rhondagod 4/18/2011
