As part of my journey with the Allstars, I had the opportunity to try out a new product from Progresso called Recipe Starters.

let's be real here: those of us who love to cook and are proud of it don't like to admit we use "premade" products.  it's kind of a pride thing.  but also being real, life is busy and sometimes taking the little ones to the pool and getting the boys' bathroom cleaned up and actually taking a shower and making it to swimming practice and a cross country meet on time are more important.  :)

that's where a pre-made ingredient might come in handy.  although more and more i lean toward clean eating (and really make it a whole-family goal!), i do also allow for days when we break the "norm" and go for something different.  when we eat clean, there is room for dinner out or a pasta dish (although i did eat this over spaghetti squash, which was oh-so-good and much lighter on the palate!)

this is the Progresso Recipe Starter Meatballs Stroganoff - a beef stroganoff recipe from that we made with (yep!) pre-made meatballs.  it was fast, it was easy, and our kids didn't leave one bite for leftovers.  the addition of fresh garlic was a perfect touch.

About Me
I'm a mom of five, one-time semi-finalist for The Next Food Network Star, now "focusing" on my photography business and home-educating our awesome growing chefs.
My favorite things to cook
garlic, sweets, and thai!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can still taste my grandma Margaret's fried peach pies, grandpa's tomatoes fresh and warm from the garden sun (eaten whole while standing at the kitchen window)... Grandma Rose's five cheese macaroni and marinated hearts of palm. Now we're making our own traditions with dad's jalapeno mac n' cheese and my son's made-from-scratch-with-no-recipe pie crust (and any filling that strikes his fancy!).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook at all! Learning to love chicken even when I've held it raw. Enjoying bananas and brussels sprouts! Teaching my kiddos to cook and letting them experiment, without my input, to create their own masterpieces.
My cooking tragedies
The ginormous bowl of tuna pasta salad (which I detest!) which got pitched directly after I made it, on a pregnancy-induced-craving whim... the "vinegar and sour cream" crock-pot chicken I made my new husband of two weeks, which he couldn't choke down!
