This blog is for the harried cook, busy families, beginning cooks, anyone who needs or wants to get a simple meal on the table in 30 to 60 minutes. FORGET FEEDING YOUR FAMILY FAST FOOD AS A REGULAR DIET. Save fast food for an occasional treat and feed your family quick, healthy meals at home! Some recipes are original and some are ones I have collected over the years and found to be practical and tasty.
