I am a happy mom of two boys, ages 10, 12.5. My husband, Paul, is my best friend. I in the kitchen enjoy cooking, eating and watching food TV and even reading cookbooks and recipe sites. (If you are reading this, you know what I mean!) You can see a couple of my cooking videos on my Youtube channel at www.youtube.com/juliamay67. My husband and I like to entertain so I am often looking for impressive but simple recipes for company. He is from England so any Anglophile recipes are great too. I have a dream of publishing a recipe book of pantry friendly items. (You know - uh oh, I have 30 mins to make a company meal...) With the economy on the fritz and 3 man sized appetites in the house, I am getting back to basics and embracing some ol' time scratch recipes.
