I find it strange how many people use canned mushrooms in recipes.  I don't know about you but IMHO, canned mushrooms don't even come close to fresh.  Not only is there absolutely no taste, but their texture is rubbery.  As well, does one really believe they are convenient when all you have… MORE

I was wondering if anyone actually is a meal planner to the extent of a week, or even a month (believe it or not, some plan for a month). Any tips or advice on how to start planning? Have you found that it helps to have a plan and if so, in what way? Does it relieve you of stress… MORE

About Me
Being a single mother at a very young age along with pinching pennies, I learned how to cook pretty quick. I am now 55 years old and have been disabled for over 10 years, but my love of cooking is endless.
My favorite things to cook
One pot casseroles, crock pot dishes, homemade soups, cookies, muffins, Italian dishes, stir-fries, comfort foods. Why bother - I pretty much enjoy cooking/baking anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Meatloaf, roast chicken, beef and pork with all the trimmings, including yorkshire smothered in homemade gravy.
My cooking triumphs
It has taken many attempts but I've finally mastered pastry.
My cooking tragedies
Anything that requires the broiler as I have a tendency to walk away from the oven (now I set a timer to remind me to check the oven). As well, I have been working on baking bread however I do cheat with a bread machine, using only the dough cycle and then shape and bake. I am still trying many different bread recipes and have a few in my "Favorites" bookmark folder. If your bread machine was collecting dust like mine, consider pulling it out and giving it a try. You would be amazed how much cheaper it is to make your own bread!
