HELPING BUSY FOLKS WITH EASY, FAMILY-FRIENDLY RECIPES
I got busy with work and life, and for years, I didn't cook much at all. Then when my son was born, I was able to stay at home with him for a couple of years and I began to reacquaint myself with my kitchen and my love of cooking. I remembered all those things I loved about feeding the people I love.
I'm a regular home cook, like most of you, doing my best to get a good meal on the table for my family. I like to say the recipes on here are recipes for the busy cook (you know who you are!) You can still get a good meal on the table, with a few shortcuts to help you along the way. I hope you'll find lots of recipes here that you'll love and hopefully will become family favorites.
DO YOU HAVE A COOKBOOK?
This is a question I get asked a lot and I'm grateful so many people want to buy one from me! I do not have a published cookbook and there are LOTS of reasons why I haven't done that - yet. For now, I put all my heart and soul into publishing free and easy-to-follow recipes here on the internet.
