I am a single mother learning to love the world of food. I love to eat, and I love to cook so here I am! I like to make dishes that are cheap and use easy ingredients. We all can appreciate fine cuisine made with fresh ingredients but for most of us working parents, we need something quick and simple. My recipes will normally include ingredients that you find on shelves in your local grocery stores. I like using canned sauces or vegetables and spices for my foods and adding my own zing to make the dish my own. I guess I want chefs to understand that you don't have to spend an arm and a leg on fresh ingredients to make a great dish! I keep missing out on Pick A Chef...I have to make sure I do this in the spring since I've been adopted twice myself!
