I'm on a mission to produce home-maker type meals on a working girl's schedule! When I was very young, my mother was a homemaker and would make these amazing meals that I'll never forget. From an early age I would browse her many cookbooks and always held an interest in the neat ideas and recipes I found. When I was older and sometimes home alone, I would find a recipe we had the ingredients for and try my hand at it. Often without permission, and often substituting things that did not go with the dish AT ALL, but a learning experience all the same. :)
