Despite my parents predictions while I was living with them at home, I have become a fairly decent cook. In fact, I find that I enjoy it very much. I watch these cooking shows and I wonder why people make such strange recipes to impress these judges. I would love to see these people impress a 3-year old, 7-year old, 10-year old, and grown man all with one meal. That is a difficult challenge and sometimes I could use some advice. But sometimes I hit it dead on and we all love what I make. I want to share with you some recipes that we enjoy. Some are really simple and some take a little more effort and time, plus pre-planning. But I think there will be a great variety and something that will entice even the pickiest eater.
I will spend this coming week in my decluttering challenge on recipes (but there really isn't anything to share about that). I will begin to post recipes that I would like to recomment to others on the recipe section of my blog. Some of these may be recipes that I have made in the past and we have loved. Some will be recipes that are new but we found them to be worthy of being added. I am currently sorting through all magazine cookbooks and loose recipes and compiling a box. I am also sorting through old recipe books to see what I have and decide if I will keep them. This will take the most time since I will be looking at specifics and writing down recipes that I think I need or use. Feel free to add recipes to the blog in the comment section.
Recently I had a conversation with a friend about quick and easy meals that everyone will enjoy. That is where I will start with my recipe blog. I understand that after working all day it is difficult to find the energy to come home and cook a healthy meal for your family. It isn't because you don't care or love them, you're just tired. It is sometimes easier to let fast-food feed them. I have nothing against fast-food. We eat it from time to time. But I also know that it can become costly and many people are trying to find ways to save. Cooking at home is so much better for you and cheaper.
