I'm a single mom of 2 boys (ages 15 & 23). I'm also an RN working in homecare. My favorite recipes are 1 pot dishes that are quick, although I don't mind spending extra time on weekends for those outstanding dishes. My biggest problem is that I'm one of those people who has a hard time cooking small. Even though there's only 2 of us (my oldest is away in the Navy), I still cook as though I'm cooking for 6. My family and friends love this and come by with their own casserole dish to load up and take home. I just started writing down my recipes... from much coersion from family & friends. I've always been a dump cook... adding and deleting items, depending on what's on hand.
