I love to cook and try to use organic and healthy ingredients as much as possible, but I will use butter if it makes it taste better. Being the mom of a toddler, I lean more towards recipes that are fast and simple to put together but pack a powerful punch, flavor-wise. Just because it's quick or only uses one pot doesn't mean it has to be bland. I am also attempting (recently) to cook without using anything from a can, so do check out my recipes if you are trying to do the same. I am a stay at home mom as of this last year so I now have more time to play with home made recipes. My husband hunts and we both fish so most of my recipes will revolve around those staples, but I will try to get some of my mom's favorite recipes out of her to post as well.
