Turkey for Thanks Giving

1 Large Turkey
1 Stick Butter
2-3 cups water
1-2 onions
Garlic Put turley in large crock pot salt and pepper to taste. Add garlic, water and onions. Cut up butter in to small chunks and spread around bird and start crock pot on 350 to 400.

If you are not woried about the pretty ness of your breast cuts you can put turkey in upside down. This will cause juices to better flow into the breast which is my favrite cut.

If using self basting pot (one that causes the watter to drip back into pan all around bird) no need to baste other wise baste bird every 30 min after first hour of cooking.

If using bird with pop timer wait and watch for that other wise using a internal thermastat check for tep of 165 or higher.

Spaghetti Sauce

5 lb. Hamburger Meat
2 Onions
1 Stalk Celery
2 Green Peppers
1-2 cans tomato paste used to thicken up sauce.
Garlic powder (or fresh garlic), oregano and other spices as you desire.
1-2 tea spoons vinegar
2 coups brown sugar

Tomatoes - I love to use fresh tomatoes out of my garden but substitute crushed, whole pealed, or stewed canned tomatoes. To me its the variety of the textures I like. For example I bottle tomatoes and use them year round I will mix with my bottled tomatoes the whole or diced tomatoes from cans (which is thicker in consistency then the bottled tomatoes which are pretty much mush by the time you cook them down.
Cook meat and onions together. I like at this time to also put in garlic and Italian seasonings. Most normal cooks put in a dash of this and dash of that. Don't tell my wife but I put the spices in by the hand full (OK maybe she already knows from buying me all the spices). To me the flavor of the spices is what its all about. Once cooked you can drain some or all of the fat. I give my wife grief for dumping it out but I suppose you can if you like, I leave most mine still in the pot though I do buy leaner ground beef.

Add Celery and Green peppers (diced and chopped) my kids like them in big chunks so they can pick them out. and I dice them really small so they cant.

Cook these tell they are to texture you like them and then add tomatoes/tomato past. Note that My 5 pounds of hamburger is huge I make large batches in 1-2 big pots to freeze left overs. Bring contents to high simmer and then turn down and simmer to cook in. At this time I add in more spices (again by hand fulls) and flavor to taste. I like it STRONG but you may want to maybe put a dash in depending on your taste buds. Also add vinegar and simmer 30 min to an hour depending on the consistency you desire your sauce to be.

Last but most important add the brown sugar. What can I say I love the sweetness of the sugar and the sassy and tarter taste of the tomatoes and the spice of oregano.

Now you can make spaghetti and eat, make home made lasagna or put it in the freezer for later.

Becca Cooks - Who, what, where, and why!

Welcome to the Becca Cooks blog. I want to make a first note we are not trying to replace the existing site. To start with I would like to explain the purpose of this site. I created a website for my little girl called It is recipe site created to share recipes with family and friends. I am a programmer and am always looking for new side projects, and as such have always encouraged my kids to be active. Rebecca (we call her Becca) is 12 and about to start middle school leaving her childhood behind. I created this site in a attempt to give her something fun to work on (and something for me to work on) in our spare time. It is my goal to make enough money to put my kids fully though school. This is something that I came up with, with Becca to do together to make money. We do not plan to charge for the site but we plan to add adds and other for sell items on it to make revenue to put her though school.

So now that we know why. Who is Becca Cooks. Rebecca Jean Healey is a 12 year old girl living in Salt Lake City, Utah. She is the the middle child of Richard and Tanya Healey. Richard is a computer programmer working for a Company named Xennsoft. Tanya is a electronic tech working for UTA (the bus company here in Utah). We live in Rose Park Utah. Rebecca like all little girls loves to be like her mother. She loves to cook! So I created as a place for her to share her favorite recipes and find new favorites. I will let her add more later to the blog about her, so more on that later.

What is It is a website created (and still in construction) built by Becca's dad to be able to list recipes. It is created and designed by Richard Healey with input from Becca and others. It is not complete, and will take weeks if not years to do so. At this time we have more then 80 recipes. We need more and that is where you come in. I ask that you our friends take a moment and enter a recipe. Follow the blog and post any comments or suggestions here or email me at

Oh ya where go to
