I will be getting married in 46 days...this single mother of 3 will become a married mother of 5, but the oldest is going off to college next month. So needless┬áto say the next month and a half will be hectic and emotional. I think my deepest concern is the differences our families have when… MORE

I love GARLIC! Chopped, minced, roasted, you name it! I saw Bobby Flay (am I allowed to mention FN celebrities here?) chop some and then flatten the blade of his knife and scrape the garlic into a paste - wonderful! This site was a Godsend back in August '05 and ever since...on my way to the… MORE

This is my first blog entry. I thought I would talk about a few other firsts as they pertain to food. The first meal I ever cooked, that required more than sliding the toaster handle down, was Stuffed Green Peppers. I was 13, alone at home and hungry. That combination alone could be… MORE

About Me
I am a recently married mother of 5 active children. We are on the go alot and I like to feed them good, healthy home cooked meals. I can't afford (health-wise or pocketbook) to eat fast food all week.
My favorite things to cook
I am always looking for recipes with garlic. I love garlic! Chopping garlic after a long day at work soothes me. I like to try new recipes. Any kind of recipe, appetizers, main dishes - crab dip, lasagne, spaghetti and homemade meatballs, garlic bread, salmon, taco salad...you name it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't really have any cooking traditions. I am trying to start some. My mother's food was always bland and my father's food was always too salty. I am trying to find that happy medium, where I don't have to use salt, but other spices that will make the dish flavorful but not salty.
My cooking triumphs
I am most happy when I make something (anything) that pleases the kids enough that they gobble it up. Most recently, I made Jambalaya, two versions: Spicy and not so spicy. Everybody loved it!
My cooking tragedies
I tend to take bits and pieces from different recipes and use what I have on hand from each recipe. They always come out tasty, but I forget to write down what I used from which recipe and then when I go to make that item again, I have to start all over! Ugh!
