As you probably guessed from my screen name, I'm a mom. She's 2 1/2 now and is the light of my life. I'm lucky enough to be married to her father who is the love of my life. I was a sahm for the first 18 months of her life and just recently quit my job so I could stay home with her again. So now that we are back on living on only 1 income, I'm looking for meal ideas that will help our food dollars stretch. I've already found a # of great ideas!
My favorite things to cook
We cook a lot of Italian and Mexican dishes in my house. Tacos and Spaghetti are 2 items that always get put on the menu list. LOL My daughter loves just about any kind of noodle, especially with red sauce!
My cooking triumphs
My husband used to pride himself on his chicken parmigiana (before we got married, of course) but he hadn't cooked it for us in a very long time. Recently I found a great chicken parmigiana recipe and tried it out. Huge success! If you want the recipe, I found it on the back of a progresso Italian bread crumb container.
My cooking tragedies
Too numerous and embarrassing to recount here.....
