  1. I have printed out all the simple recipes for Jake. He is looking forward to trying them. They don't keep a lot of spices in the house so they have to be very basic recipes. I am on the look-out for more.
    Thanks for your help PIC. I want these guys to eat well and not rely on fast food.

  2. Great ... Jake don't have to use lots of spices , for this recipe , he can use a can of chili and cheese and onion if they like them.
    My kids has started to experiment with food , it's fun to see how they do a recipe .
    Keep ketchup ,mustard , mayo , pickles and relish and you will be surprise at what he come up with .
    I think you should ask Willis to get Jake a slow cooker .
    Your friend always
