Welcome to my recipe blog! I started it when my brother, Mark, moved away and was in need of some recipes....or so I thought.... The goal is to post recipes that can be made quickly, easily, and inexpensively. If you have something to contribute, please let me know and I will be glad to add it!!

Oklahoma Slaw

Chop 1 medium head of cabbage
2-3 bunches green onions (depending on taste)
Add: 2 oz. pkg. slivered almonds
4 oz. pkg. sunflower seeds

Take 2 pkg. chicken flavored Ramen noodles. Chop dry noodles into small pieces and add to vegetables.

2 ramen seasoning packets
6 tablespoons sugar
1 cup oil
3 tablespoons vinegar
1/4 c. water


for lower fat dressing:
2 ramen seasong packets
9 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup oil
6 tablespoons vinegar
2/3 c. water

I wait until just before serving to add the ramen so it will be crunchy. I also like the lower fat dressing better.

I got this recipe from a good friend, Debbie Proctor, when my kids were young. It's a great dish for larger groups or church dinners.
