I currently live in St. Louis, Missouri. My family and I just moved here from southwest Missouri, but I have lived in Chicago and Southern California most of my childhood. I am a working mom to 3 boys (oldest is 6). I cook meals every night for my family, sometimes my in-laws who live very close by. I am always looking for new recipes and ways to update my old ones. I can say with pride that I have not cooked anything that my husband didn't love! I consider that quite an accomplishment, considering I never cooked until I got married! I found recipe zaar on a cooking forum and have not been disappointed with any of the recipes I have found here. Since my boys are getting to the age where they can begin helping out in the kitchen, I try to cook family-friendly meals where they can pitch in. Like pizzas where they can add their own toppings or macaroni and cheese where they can help add ingredients and variants. Those are generally the recipes I search for on recipe zaar.
