We are just a regular family trying to make it through each day while raising three growing kids. It is time for those kids to start getting ready to fly the nest – all fully out on their own wings in about 10 years total. This blog is our way of helping them stretch their wings by learning how to do the very basics of cooking and more. It all started with a popular Facebook post on my personal profile in which I asked family and friends to suggest basic cooking recipes that my kids need to learn to survive. And with all the suggestions, this idea was born! So welcome to our family through this blog which will serve as a tool to remind my kids of how to cook all these “basic” recipes. I hope you will follow along and maybe contribute suggestions or even learn something new from our modest family.
