Sometimes you just need a muffin and nothing else will do. Today was one of those days, and something different was on my mind. This is what I came up with that got raves from the family, and I have to admit it took care of that craving for all of my favorite things in one muffin.

I never turn up my nose at any spaghetti squash, or spaghetti squash topping. I will and have tried a lot of them through the years, or should I say ever since spaghetti squash became one of the newer food fads, tho it has died off some/recently as newer fads have come along. Today I was craving something bordering on a Chinese kind of recipe/dish, but not, if you know what I mean. So my search of my staples began, and this is what came out of it, and might...

Crock pot low 4-5 hours, high 2-3 hours or until done!!

I don't know about you, but I am ready for something yummy that doesn't involve turkey, ham, beef or pork.  It was a wonderful holiday for us, and hope for you all too. But now the reality sets in of the couple of xtra pounds I have now acquired, and if you are one of the lucky ones who didn't, you might still enjoy something off the beaten path of all the festivities "goodies and treats," I, myself in...
