I am a wife, mother to two beautiful little boys, medical secretary, and an avid Pinner! I use Pinterest for everything in my life, from nightly dinners to party ideas. I always wondered how my dinners compared to those I found on my computer screen, so I thought it was time to start a blog about all my successes and failures. I will feature the original recipes I find on Pinterest, along with the changes I almost always make. I have a love of cooking, with little creativity, so I turn to these recipes to help me fill in the gaps.
I would love to say that I always make healthy, cheap meals that only take 30 minutes, but you and I both know that’s not always possible. My husband and I do live on a modest grocery budget, but we have found that cooking from scratch always trumps any frozen dinner. With a retail schedule my husband is not always home for dinner, so it makes it easy to fall into a hot dog and applesauce routine, but this is the year I want to change that. I want my boys to look forward to a dinner together every night and the drive to want to learn these skills for themselves.
So, this is my attempt at healthy and happy year, let’s see how it goes!
