Tasty Tuesday @recipes

Good afternoon everyone.  In honor of the official first day of spring and some much needed spring cleaning,  I've been sitting at my dining room table with my recipe box and a huge stack of recipes written on everything from napkins to cardboard to receipts and envelopes.  Anything but recipe cards so I've been transferring everything to cards so they will fit into my recipe box and alleviate a little big of clutter.  Then I decided it's been a while since I shared any recipes so here ya go !!  No theme to these today, just a variety of stuff that sounded good.
