Recipes

So what I really want to do is have the title of the Recipe  that you can click on and go to the recipe. 

But I still have not figured out how to get this page the way I want so I will keep trying…

So I talked to several people today  about differnt recipes that I have used and I really wanted to be able to reference them here.  So I’m thinking I may just put some links in for a reference til I can figure out how to make this page the way I want…. Realize I tweek recipes all the time and don’t necessarily follow them exactly

 

practice list

  • meatloaf
  • lemon pie

So can I enter a post on this page? NO… hmm.

how can I make this page the way I want it???

So I am trying to figure out the best way to do recipes here scroll thru to find the one you want:

This summer I got 2 Lavender Basil plants from a friend.  They have done well but now I am trying to figure out what to do since the Lavender aroma is not quite what I want on my Pasta.  I did some searching on the net and found several websites with lots of recipe ideas.  I decided for the Lavender basil to make a sugar scrub for hands and feet.  October 2016.
