I am a mom to a 3 year old boy and a 6 mo. old girl. I am lucky enough (I think)to be able to stay at home with them all day! I love to cook and it makes my whole day when my husband loves a new dish. His phrase of praise is "If you can cook like this, I should never have to eat hot dogs and mac and cheese again".:) We used to have the same things over and over again for dinner but since I discovered Zaar, we hardly ever eat the same thing twice unless it was a real winner. My husband is 100% Italian and I love to find authentic dishes that remind him of his moms cooking.
